Japan- do it.
dont go with any expectations other than to be open to everything. Do the Onsens, do the Teriyaki burgers at 2am with Asahi from 7-11 for 2 bucks for a pint. Do harajuku. DO HARAJUKU. Explore.
oh learn 'doko des ka' and 'sumimasen' at bare minimum. finding bape and alife in harajuku- you'll need it
Just thought I'd drop a line in this thread saying I'll be in Tokyo On July 5th for a year. First month will be in Tokyo then the rest of the year I'll just be wondering around the counrty. Anyone who's settled in already or will be traveling there around this time get at me, we'll do big things.
