My greatest dreams is to travel to Japan and still be young, I'm 22 now but I do not have the money and I'm worried by the time I can afford to travel to Japan, I will be in my 30s by then which means I will be old, two days ago, I was scammed 500 pounds and I'm never gonna get it back, for this month I've got to live off no money whatsoever for a month as I have no money.

I honestly feel like killing myself, do you think I will ever go to Japan one day and be young?

      32 is old. You won't have access to top tier teenagers (18+ of course) in Japan.
      Plus the older you get the less ability you have to hold your piss. I'm 39 and have to piss all the time. That makes traveling very restrictive.

      This is what I was dealing with recently. 2 years ago I was freaking out over going at 24 or older. But it'll be the same shit. I was supposed to go next year and was bummed out that I had to hold it off and use a lot of my saved up money to help with my grandma's funeral expenses because I lost her, but then I remembered Japan isn't going anywhere. I'll be fine going in 2025 when I have a better job and higher pay

        Not incel and not a weeb. Got tired of western girls trying to top from the bottom, just a constant fricking dance with them, decided I would see what a different culture was like. Well, figured out to cross grorious nippon off the list. Maybe slavic or chinese next, I dunno. Slavs always complain about their women, but so does everyone, and chinese seems like a stretch.

    Save yourself the drama and just don’t go. If you’re all doom and gloom now, it’s not gonna be fun by the time you actually get to. Maybe travel somewhere else closer, cheaper, with little expectations?

    In addition to that, Japan isn’t all that great. It’s a cool country and I’d rather visit it than like, Nigeria, but weabooism and internet propaganda has a lot of people thinking it’s some sort of paradise when it really isn’t. Not more than any country can be a “paradise” for the über rich

                White people like Japanese food because its pretty palatable for westerners. Not a lot of spices, basic flavour profiles. Only thing that might turn some people off is raw fish (my aunt and uncle are like this), but its definitely a lot more normalized now that it is in the past.

                People who think Japanese food is "weird" need to leave their flyover state for once.

    I was 25 when I went to Japan. I just graduated from university and had only 8k in my bank account. I saved up from non-stop part time jobs since 14 years old.

    Best trip of my life and it was before smartphone/smart phone/data SIM/free wifi easy mode. Just bought a flight ticket 2 weeks after graduation and was in Japan 2 weeks later with $2000 worth of yen, cloths on my back, and a stack of printed route/ticket/hotel instructions.

    Spent a month there and found a real full time job 2 months later. Since then I have been going to Japan every 2 years.

            just keep in mind I'm going with an agency, so that's why it's cheaper than if you do and get all that by yourself. also going with a friend, so the rooms end up cheaper

                sure you can achieve cheaper/same by going by yourself, but you'll be budgeting really fricking heavily on food, transport and paid to enter places, services and events
                and if one does not know moon, it's hard to get lost and one learns more and visits more places this way

    Lived in Northamptonshire (east midlands i.e. quite a bit cheaper than London), software developer, lived like a israelite and didn't spend much for a few years instead saving all I could, only put down a £30k deposit and got a ~2% mortgage rate back then. Was a nice house too, semi detached in a village. I mean, it's really fricking over in several different ways to even try something like that now, and that was only 4 years ago

    I don’t understand how people can act like going to Japan is their only passion and destiny in life and then turn around and say
    >but I don’t speak the language
    >but I just eat western food
    I’m not a sour grapes homosexual, but it really seems like you people have no character besides following trends.

    fren, I just started my traveling and I am nearly 30, it took me a few years to save up, finally I was able to visit Japan this year, don't sweat it, you have many days ahead of you to travel. You will get there. Just have patience.

    Nobody should live past 30. Particularly and especially women. Do things while you’re young and then have a nice day

    >another one of those tfw im 22 and cant travel, ill be to old when I will be 30
    How unsecure are you, or are you a coomer that only travel to get laid? Everyone have problems but overthinking such stuff when you are 22 and basicly thinking your life will be over once you hit 30 (or do you have terminal illness/are balding midgetman?) is bordering mental illness. Most japs dont care a slighless about turist, even people that hand out advert on street dont bug you because theyre so afarid of foregin contact/having to speak in eng.
    I was in jap 6y ago and let me tell you, im not a weeb, but i like japan for history/culture, atmosphere and some old anime/games. It was still far from i expected. I was kindda unimpressed by it, but after few days and when I returned back home I grew to appriciate it more. At that point in my life I travelled to few far east asia countries and jap was gonna be like a crown gem in my head, but it wasnt/isnt it. Its superb country to travel but main turist group that go to jap are weeb or yellowcoom obssesed individuals that go straight into aki for anime merch/maid cafes or are crusing tokyo to "meet" their asian bootcall. If youre this unhidged, its no diffrence wether you are 22 or 30, if youre not charisma magnet/have luck probably you wont made any real long lasting conections, I know few people that lived in jap when they were 24-27 >1y and they didnt formed any real meaningful relationahips beside fellow expats despite trying really hard. Quit maladaptive daydreaming about your future and how it would suck because at some point yeah, it probably will when you grow old.

    why are you psyching yourself into thinking 30 is old and somehow bad? I'm 33 and my life was never better.
