Dick, did you come across any Thais while you were there?
Every time I went to Japan I'd see them in the laundrette, 7-11, Family mini-marts, passed them in the streets or shopping malls etc.

There's so many Thais there in the towns and cities that they have their own taxi service called 'Arai Baay', meaning for 1 note (1,000yen) they'll pick you up and take you most anywhere within reason.

They also have vans that do the rounds of where Thais live selling Thai food.

Excellent thread btw.

555 Cheap 'n nasty is how I *used to* like my women bro... not my hotel rooms.

Sure, Beerlao... welcome to contribute (just no sheep porn please) heh

Gaza, yeah mate... heaps of Thais... I hear them talking in Uniglo (clothing outlet *not a strange dialect) fantastic value and good quality for the price btw...
now they have a free-visa deal with Thailand.. I plan to incorporate that into my business when living there... i.e. teach Japanese business people Thai, before they are transferred to Thai to work.. or find Thai tradies (painters/plasterers/tilers) and run a small team of workers in Japan (like I do in NZ)

Must be some way to utilize my Thai language skills there, to my advantage. Just have to focus on learning Japanese before our move.

Baldrick, the pink suitcase is my wife's... black Nike manly bag, is mine... (except on Sundays when we swap)..

Check the time on your post...That's Thai time...Got up at 3:30 am this morning...Usually between 4 and 5, so I'm a little early...Part of the fitness "campaign"...Running and swimming at sunrise...20 minute walk to the beach as warm-up, then interval training after stretching...When a "gasket is blown" during the anaerobic explosions then I switch to swimming...

Top thread Dicky!

Never been to Fukuoka but my trips to the wonderfully strange land of the rising sun have been among the most memorable of my life.

I just read that some new law has / will be passed that makes it illegal for Airbnb (and the like) to rent out rooms for less then 1 week. To help the hotel industry. This might make your business idea a little harder....

Nice thread by the way. Enjoyed the pics. Would love more thoughts / info on the prices for hotels and food etc.

^ I wish 55... the big family banquet dinners were sponsored/hosted i.e. paid for by uncle... we also had free use of his car while we were there...

My wife pays/paid 50% of everything... in fact, this time.. I think she paid more than me.. she works for a travel company, so we get very cheap airfares..

$800 each (return) from Auckland to Japan.

Our first trip to Saga, with Steven San and his wife/kids... hotel was $160 per night...(including buffet break/dinner)... extra $15 for all you can drink (5 - 7 pm)..

I drove about 1,000 km in Japan during our 3 weeks... filled up the tank once, cost 7,000 yen (about $70 NZ).. 1 liter of petrol 98 RON is about $1 ($2 in NZ) so half the price. Steven said in America gas is even cheaper than Japan...

The fancy Hotel in Miyazaki next to the beach was on special... around $200 per night (down from $450)... my wife is a clever cookie at finding seemingly hi-so accommodation at reasonable prices..

Very nice hotel in Yokohama was around $180 again after a big discount.

What else... umm big bowl of Ramen (famous in Fukuoka) $8
If we were to rent an Eco-car (hybrid) as we intended - it would have been $250 per week.

For a couple to eat at a Yakatori restaurant (with beer) $40..
you can eat well for $20 per person...

The rest of the money we spent was on cosmetics (half the price as in NZ) cologne (I bought Eternity for men Summer, Calvin Clein) 100 mls for $40
clothes are much cheaper, Nike Kiashi running shoes $60 in Japan $130 in NZ

Umm Diesel watches (I collect them) and sell them in NZ... not available in NZ.

We negate the cost of our trip/expenses by stocking up on stuff we will need for the following year. Big bottles of shampoo, face wash, etc..
She paid an extra $60 for an extra 23 kg of stuff...

We stayed with her mum, so that had a big impact on saving money as well.
All up, in 3 weeks... I'd say we spent about $2,000 NZ each (including our own personal gifts to ourselves and friends/family).
*Not including tickets, of course.

Hmmm... I should upload pics of the stuff we bought, can I show that stuff off a bit?

I guess the question on some of your minds would be, seeing that I've spent so much of my life in Thailand and have just recently gone 'crazy for Japan'...(at least I'm honest 55) compare the prices between the two very different places..

To Dick's humble (slightly deranged, mind) of course Thailand wins, if judged purely on being cheaper (not in all things, but most)...

Japan, simply can't beat Thailand on 'cheapness', but where Japan beats Thailand hands down, is on quality.

My $8 (200 baht approx) Ramen noodles are much more expensive than your 40 baht bowl of (gor deow guy) chicken noodle soup... but I guarantee the ingredients are fresher and of higher quality and nutritional value.

(Not a good example) and I don't want to look down on Thai food (which I love just as much as Japanese food) but my point is, in general, Japanese food is higher quality and more healthy. Obviously, taste is a personal preference...

Travel cost is expensive in Japan.. a rail pass (for the Shinkansen bullet train) is around $600 per month... but local short distance normal or express trains cost is much cheaper.. just a few dollars.

Rent for a nice new apartment in Fukuoka (per month) is around $600 - $800 NZ.

I bought all the ingredients for the spaghetti and noticed meat, most fruit/veges, etc.. to be considerably cheaper than in NZ... probably around 30%

So for cheapness... Thailand wins

for quality... Japan all day, every day..

Not just food (which is debatable) but electronics, made in Japan are expected to last 10 years minimum... my wife's hair dryer (for instance) that she brought from Japan
to NZ, 8 years ago, is still going strong... whereas the ones that she buys in NZ last no longer than a year.
The Japanese are perfectionists in the extreme...

^ Really?? 55 cheers, Headworx!

some of the new Diesel watches I bought $400 for all four ($799 each! in NZ).



I have advertised them for sale..

Oh, G-Shock watches, are real cheap there too... I have heaps of G-Shock....Seiko are cheaper there too! (obviously I'm comparing to NZ - where every bloody thing is over-priced)
