I'm really excited for you, that sounds great.
Unless you fall prey to 'the loneliest time of my life' trap that some do, but hey, motherland Nipon!

It seems lots of people on this board have been. I'm meant to be going for a holiday in October but I'm not even sure of the sights and things.

My social life is far more booming in Japan than it is here.
I'll miss my one friend and family though.

The Japanese themself recomend Seeing the temples.  (there are alot)
If you're an Anime fan there's weeks of entertainment to be had in Akihabara.
Be sure to go to Harajuku Sunday. Quite interesting. I've only been there once though.
Yay Xnfe!

Really? Without trying to sound rude, that's almost strange that you'd get on better in a different place than where you've spent all your time.

I'm aiming for all of those things, the Harajuku Sunday is probably the most anticipated. But I really can't wait for just the museums and things, too. Thank God for museums, I'm too poor to function on holiday without them.
Akihabara will probably be a bit of a bust because it's not like I'll have lots of spending money.

So... guys... this is shameless but~
I entered an online art competition called 'The Lumen Prize'. I didn't make the shortlist but there's a peoples's choice, if I left the link would anyone be bothered with voting for me? The process isn't too arduous compared to some but you do need to give your email and address.

This was the piece, but it's a million times bigger.

I'm a recluse and nobody really shares my passion for, well, anything really, around here.

About Harajuku. I expected alot of goth lolis. Don't or you'll be dissappointed.
There were only six of them the one sunday I went there.

If you intend to see any kind of Anime related museum or art show you might aswell just go to Akiba.
All of that stuff is there. Galleries, vintage toys and games, new and old figurines.
There's a famous anime museum in Akihabara that shows up on alot of tourist broshures that I found to be completely pointless. Just go ten paces on the main street and that museum will pale.


I'd vote for you. Unless it takes all day. I'm still busy moving. Only 10 more days.
Yay Xnfe!

I'm sorry for taking so long, term just started back. So not ready for a dissertation, ever.


Aww man, I wanted to see more than six! But people have told me all of that street fashion stuff is pretty much over. I'll be going to alot of the Lolita shops anyhow so atleast I can see some nicely dressed staff there :3

Okie dokie!

I take it you've moved... Did that go okay?


Voting, eh, I'm definately not going to win. I couldn't muster the gall to post it to my puny amount of fb friends :/ These people will be spamming behance and twitter and the like.

The piece is called Peluana, but I'm not sure how voting really works, I haven't been through the process.

What prefecture did you move to? It'd be nice to see a friendly face albeit one I've never seen.
I guess it must be something to do with air ticket prices and the disaster, because a lot of people I know suddenly seem to be just 'popping over' as if it were just France.

the ticket price has remained the same from sweden...It should have gotten cheaper but didn't.
Well I don't have to fly again for a while so that's good.

Prefecture... Chiba, I think.
It's pretty easy to get around in the underground so location (within Tokyo) shouldn't be a problem
Yay Xnfe!

It's only down by a fraction even then, so you didn't miss out on too much.

Sounds good. I was talking with someone today about how much nicer it is to go somewhere and actually be a part of it for a while, rather than just hotel it. I got to be a part of South Africa for a short stay once, but it was the white privileged part where you only leave your air conned apartment to go to air conned all-white expensive eateries... Not really the same.
Hopefully the whole gaijin thing isn't as stuffy as that was.

I have no idea when that is but I'll look into it.
They seem to celebrate Haloween around here. At least the stores do.
Yay Xnfe!

From what I've seen there's not much in the way of public events, and the foreigners have a party on the train.
It's really hard to find things that are going on when all you have is google translate.
