    So here we go. Rather than out all my food shit in the eating thread and annoy people, I'm gonna post it here so if you don't want to engage you don't have to open the thread. Gonna post the tentative itinerary for the trip in a few days but yeah, am getting fucking hype for a sensory overload.

    And yes there will be frog beer.
  • I'd like to get back to Japan. It was the last stop on my travels so many years ago and I was ill for the first couple of days, so I missed out on some stuff and have actually forgotten quite a bit of it, now. The bits I do remember were very cool.  And coming straight from Hong Kong, it was remarkable how different the societies were.
  • This is good, easier to check for things. Can I throw in a suggestofuck or two? One place in particular where I ate the best oysters of my fucking life. Not tourist friendly though cos the guy struggles with English and menu is in Japanese only, had a blast using Google translate though

  • I need a pic of you or flora giving a shibe inu a handshake. Preferably the dog has a costume on, but it's okay if not.

    Also, all the damn mascots. I wanna see them all.

    I'll look for the business card. It's probably better with the missus than solo

  • Actually it's on my maps.

    Bakushuan
    Japan, 〒170-0004 Tōkyō-to, Toshima-ku, Kitaōtsuka, 2-chōme−27−1 吉松ビル2F
    +81 3-3915-4550
    https://maps.app.goo.gl/XSVAu5zVyk9ZJokp7

    Otsuka. Decent beer in bars nearby as well, and taproom too. Chatty locals.

    Ignore the reviews. It's full of angry Tokyo work lunch stuff, which I guess is their main trade.

    Jellied fish... Oyster with olive oil, and other oyster stuff was top notch. Beer was super. Probably the best spot in Tokyo outside super spenny beef thingies. The owner /chef is super cool as well. Basic engrish.

    I really wanna go back.

    I didn't realise you were a complete pervert.
  • Recommendations

    1) Go to Nara it's about an hour from Osaka on a standard train, loads of deer that nibble your arse.
    2) Buy an egg sandwich from a convenience store they are fucking awesome and less than a pound.
    3) Mount Takao, an hour on the train from tokyo. There's a bar at the top and a cracking shrine. Tis a lovely place
    4) Bars: Rock Rock bar Osaka (they were playing the manics when we opened the door), 70's Rock and Blues bar in Ueno, Tokyo is a nice friendly place with reasonably priced drinks.
    5) Asian giant hornets are the worst fucking things imaginable, avoid at all costs.
    6) there's a cracking video games store in Akiharbara (not super potatoe) that has Zelda music playing outside, I got 2 Saturn pads for about £15.
    7) Arashiyama is probs the best area of Kyoto. Old town, little markets etc.
  • Keen to see your itinerary. Then I can try to suggest

    Metal Jesus recently did some videos about his Japan trip. Might feature some game shops you haven't been to yet?

    Also, I was serious about wanting an order / chaos shirt if you'll find any.

    Please take more Persona 5 related pics, like the one you did last time you went.

    A few people I've met have been and said it's awesome. Even good going to the Sumo training centre and watching them train when there's no matches going on.

    You been to Disneysea before Reg? Because it's amazing and you're gonna love it! I hope you win in the raffle to go into the Mickey Jazz show so you can tell me how it is. You only get one chance per day and I didn't win a ticket :(
    The big night show is ridonk too. Like proper ridonk.
  • I've done that. Honestly I kind of fell asleep for most of it. Who knew large men shoving eachother could take so long.

    Lol Shaba you Muppet, this is reg. He's gonna win a ticket on the raffle and while he is complaininh to his wife that it's the matinee, he's gonna trip over the secret cache of unlimited tix with backrubs and endless hitachino nest ale and commemorative big hat

    Outrageous.

    Yes, I have been to Disneysea twice previously - the Disney park you can drink in is a pretty good incentive. We go as much for the food and drink as anything else. And indeed, I did win the raffle to see Big Band Beat. And my wife fell asleep during it.

    Whoop!
  • Okay I'm definitely getting pished in a Disneyzone next trip.
  • Yasakuni war shrine?  It's an eye opener.
