    Great thread thanks. I'm hoping to get there next year and backpack around the place. You got any info on reasonable accomodation and what i could expect to spend per day?

    cheers

    outside Tokyo, it can be super cheap I have been told. Even skyiing is a bargain. You can find accommodation for 2000 THB, outside Tokyo, not a problem. Actually, even in Tokyo, there are some cheap accommodations around those prices if you look hard enough,

    On of the things I love about Japan, most all the nice girls dress like hookers. You were lucky to have come during what we refer to as "boot season".

    This is probably the cheapest option in Tokyo. Strangely enough named..Khaosan Tokyo. You can find rooms for 6000 or so but they will be very small.

    Winter is probably the best time to visit. Boot season being one reason. The weather is nice almost every day, cold but sunny.

    i can see what Thailand has modelled their city on from this picture. overhead roads, elevated trains and large walkways. even the side alleys in your other pics seem just like the ones in Thailand.

    Think London will never change

    True. It looks like the road near MBK and the National Stadium BTS.

    Except there is an actual push bike using the cycle lane which is clearly marked and looks quite safe.

    Also the taxis look shit.
