    CY Hits Japan

    Where the fuck do I go?

    I know it will be raining but I'm hoping to emerge from this looking as cool as halelulah.

    This will be my first ever photo thread if it isn't consigned to the dog house before I get there.

    All suggestions appreciated. What is practical in late June?

    Hence the name I guess.

    Cool though, eh?

    Actually, that's when I like them most.

    You will like them very much then, when they declare war on you, for flying that flag

    But I won't be flying that flag.

    And if I flew the flag that they fly when declaring war on people how could they declare war on me?


    It's their own flag that they fly when declaring war on people.

    She's in charge, hl

    I've planned several in Europe and one in the US.

    Now it's her time.

    Her continent.



    Hence the thread.

    I thought this thread was about Psy, the Gangnam Style singer. Click bait!

    As I recall, BLD made a very nice thread about his Japan trip - they went to several cities in 1 trip - look it up if interested.

    Enjoy your trip and looking forward to the pics - including those of Fukuoka, the meet up with Dicky, etc.

    Yes well...ahem.

    The lad's rather blotted his copybook.

    I'll have a look at the BLD thread...his digs would be out of our budget, maybe.

    Tokyo is still my favourite place over there, but Osaka and Kyoto are worth a look too. I went to Mount Fuji and stayed overnight nearby; it was very quiet but quite pleasant too.

    I enjoy the teppenyaki places in the evening and just ordering whatever I see as well as getting tanked up on decent beer.

    Looking forward to the thread.

    Check out the various Japan Rail passes too. They can make a big difference to what you pay.

    Two different friends have gone a dozen or so times.

    Both swear by Hokkaido and say N has it all.

    Japan is the dogs bollix. Great place. Not done Tokyo, but Osaka, Kobe and a few other places. Its just polite, clean, peaceful, and there is always something pleasing to the eye, from a small manicured plant arrangement outside a mom and pop shop, to a nature area that will make you cry.

    Its not that expensive if you keep your wits about you. A fresh tray of sushi from the local 7/11 or family mart, a couple of botles of ashahi and a chilled bottle of saki. Cheap as chips and great value. Transport, subway, trains cheap, efficient and managable.

    Time i went back. Great place.

    I noticed spirits in 7-11 are well cheap.

    Kamakura, Kyoto, and Nikko are all great for sightseeing.

    Nude bathing in an outdoor onsen is outstanding. Don’t be shy and miss it. (I don’t think anyone cares if foreigners have tattoos.)
