Trip to Tokyo

First impressions

Airport is a bit dreary but the toilets let you know you are in Japan with their heated seats and hi-tech control panel



Everything is miniature in nihon. Even the pub is tiny. One table, six seats.



Traditional Japanese cooking. J-girl can cook up a lovely bit of nosh faster than you can say haute-cuisine.



Walk round Ginza, the expensive shopping district. All japanese people are wired up to at least 2 paralllel sources of electronic information at once.



Japanese beer comes in 2 varieties. Cheap and normal price. Don't buy the cheap stuff. It is the same strength as regular but tastes all watery and bland. The 2 in the middle are normal price. Lovely and malty.



Senso-Ji shinto shrine in Asakusa district.



mmmm... lovely Japanese money

Nice one Looper, I've got high hopes for this thread as I've never been there. Hopefully you've got some pics of lots of J-birds.

Bit worried about the last pic. If thats you holding the money then you've got a really gay yellow cardigan and a bit of cleavage.

My Favourite evening activity. A trip to the Onsen. Outdoor natural hotsprings where you can sit and look at the stars from hot bathing pools.



You cannot take photos in the actual bathing area since it is full of naked Japanese men (Women bathe in a seperate area)



Tokyo by day and night from Government tower in Shinjuku.





Cutie Relax bars in Akihabara. Strange coffeeshop/bar affairs where you get to flirt with (in Japanese) but not touch a Japanese girl who is dressed up like she needs a good spanking.



Here is one of the girls. You are not supposed to take photos so it is not such a good pic.



Here are the instructions (in English even though the girls only speak Japanese).



Off to the imperial palace today for private tea ceremony with the emperor.

Went for a wander round Yasukuni Jinja shrine which is the war hero shrine that right wing Japanese prime ministers like to vist which annoys Chinese people.
It is a surpisingly serene and peaceful place. More-so than any other shrine I have seen so far.



It has a war museum attached but I was surpised to see on proud display the train that was used to open the Thai burma railway, since it is a painful memory for many westerners with family who died in the railroad construction.



Trip to Ueno park where they play baseball.



A pokemon girl helping out the amusement arcade patrons.



Two statues at Senso-Ji in Asakusa.





The J-Girl toilet. Trust those crazy Japs to take a good idea like the bum gun and make it great.



Seat is permanently heated. Water spray is pre-heated on demand. Seperate sprays for back-bottom and front-bottom (or ball-bag massage). Hot air blower to dry your spanky clean arse. Blue and red buttons are the temperature control. Haven't figured out what the volume control does yet. The warm back-bottom jet is so nice I go in and use it even when I don't need a crap

Day trip to Kamakura with all the old shrines and temples.











Innovative folks the Japs. Way ahead of the game with wheelchair access even on 500 year old temples.



Photo booth for making impromptu home-made porn in public. These girls probably had their jeans round their knees and their t-shirts round their necks.



J-girl chooses the sashimi at Ueno market. We got 1Kg for 1000 yen ($12) and it was delicious with soy and wasabi.



Hi tech bookies with indoor smoking still allowed.



To answer Jizzy - no it is not an ashtray. It is the advanced controls which I am not qualified to operate at this stage.



...and yes it is a sink. Water runs when you flush so you can wash all the nasty germs off.



More thoughtful toilet-related innovation

I love those toilets. If they sold them here I'd get one tomorrow.

Isn't the volume control for the flushing sound button? I heard some jap toilets have a button to make a flushing sound - without actually flushing - in case you're about to make some potentially embarrassing noises in there. Love the umbrella holder too

The high tech bookies look like out of a film, you couldn't make this up.

How does one pick up a j-girl btw? Must one speak Japanese?

Great report i will make use of this info on my next trip. I was in Tokyo only once but without any preparation I had a blast but it was somewhat overwhelming.

Daytrip to Odaiba down by the harbour. You forget Tokyo is a port city till you come down here.

The cool futuristic star wars ferry.



Geisha girls.



School trip. I have started making the peace sign in all my Japanese holiday photos.



This little guy's head was so small he managed to get through the bars and wave to his mum from the wrong side, 10m above the drop to the walkway below. She went frantic but he was not happy about being whisked back to safety.



Channel 9 TV station with 747 taking off from Haneda in the background.



Brooklyn bridge

Most Japs seem to speak very basic or no English so I think if you were coming over here you would want to learn some Japanese first. I met J-Girl in Australia.

I don't actually think I left Shinjuku in two trips to Tokyo. Wish I'd seen more though- it's a fascinating city.

2 day trip to mountains west of Tokyo

Sulphur vents on side of active volcano



Sneaked a camera in to the onsen once all the naked Japanese guys had left. Water is volcanically heated spring water. Up high in the mutains the air is quite cool at night which makes clouds of steam rise off the pools when you are sitting in them.



This is where you sit and wash your balls with all the naked Japanese guys before getting in the onsen.



Many eagles flying aroud the mountains.



Tori gate on Lake Ashi.





Fields of mountain grass.



Fuji Yama, in the background, was hidden in a bank of cloud but this is what it wold have looked like if we could have seen it

Best I could do FP. That was the sample photo provided for visitors who show up when it is raining. It was nice and sunny but Fuji was shrouded in cloud the whole time.

They do something simlliar when doing maintenance on a shrine. They hang a big sheet with a photo of the shrine over the scaffolding so you can see what it would have looked like if they weren't doing maintenance on it
