    Because you’re a pathetic weeb and you think “next time’s the time I’m gonna find a qt jap girl” who reminds you of some colorful kid in your Chinese cartoon. But she doesn’t exist and if she did she wouldn’t marry you.

        That's not what I mean...

        Japan has fallen to westerners and it's anything what it should be like now. Japanese kneeled to the cuckmask and vax shit which seriously ruined many things. The amount of AMERICA in places like Akihabara, Shibuya, Central Tokyo, and even some other places like Kyoto are an embarrassment to walk past as a white tourist on holiday. Where did it go so wrong? Trump? The pandemic? What. People were constantly assuming simply by being white I was there to talk to them in English, yet I've studied all pandemic to be essentially fluent in Japanese to where subtitles in some of my favorite anime aren't needed on the second watch. It's emberrassing to be in so many places and hear "Hello, would you like a table to sit down?" rather than the native tongue.

        All the good times you would want to have from those early 2000 anime or things you would often see on GTO, K-On, or /comfy/ memories of the japanese country side such as mushishi and NNB are dead. Everything is now made Japan a theme park to where the soul is gone from it. There isn't a "Japan" anymore it's a glorified holiday theme park.

      Funny thing is, I actually fricked a kuroneko kawai moe moe japanese girl. Didn't pay for it and it took me two solid dates. She was kinda ugly tho but I was committed mainly because I wanted to fulfill that stupid fantasy that many people have. She was into cosplay, met her at a HUB (the one in Akihabara). I was the one that approached her and it somehow worked out. I have probably approached near 40-50 girls during my stay + tinder and only that one worked out. I've been doing the same in several other countries and I gotta admit Japan was the hardest, specially because my Japanese sucks. I still wanna go back to Japan although I don't wanna try getting laid again, too much work for a mediocre girl with soft ass (in a bad way).

      That ship sailed when I realized I can only get hard to girls who actually touch me aggressively. Japs are so soft that they put me to sleep, which isn't a bad thing because they're the best girls for making you feel totally relaxed. But I'm kinda trying to coom and have wild sex. I'm becoming more of a chinkophile these days because they are active during sex, but I'm too scared to go to that shithole just for pussy.
      Also too much porn has made me conditioned to believe women only have worth if they're thick, which the majority of Asians simply are not.

      lets just say lack of abrahamic religion.

      yeeus hate Christ so they organize to ruin countries where Christianity is dominant religion.
      They also hate Islam but Islam is too based/lacking the self victimizing attitude.
      Torah teaches that God needs people, that you are chosen needed wanted, its infinitely healthier than looking at yourself as sinner unworthy of anything.
      (Even tho Jesus didnt teach that - he actually brought Torah to the masses and wanted everyone to think they are God but J boiz didnt like that ofc).

      Basically what we are seeing is results of war of self images.

      tl dr: just believe in yourself.

    I went to Tokyo when I was 17 in the summer of 2009. My dad was fire-chief for the city and on a couple of government boards, including one for the 9-1-1 system. And so there was a international conference going to take place and my dad was invited to go.

    I was in a real dump at the time, my high school boyfriend died the year previously. So my dad thought it would be good for me to go. I always wanted to go, being a geeky weeb growing up. So I got my passport ready, dad had to pay for my seat on the 12 hour flight, but the hotel had two beds anyway. Stayed at the Niwa Hotel near the Kanda river (along with some of the other Americans. Not the fanciest place, but you know, taxpayer funded trip in the middle of a recession, had to cut expenses. Still better than the Embassy Suites in Dallas.

    There was a Japanese guy seeing to the American reps. Some brought their wives or a kid along, but I didn't really hangout with them. I was like Bill Murray in Lost in Translation moping around the room, I was kinda still a little too sad my boyfriend wasn't there with me. I went with my dad to the convention one day. Learned that you dialed 1-1-0 for police and 1-1-9 for for fire and ambulance, that was it. I did like their 7-11s over there. Way better then how the indians run them here. The coke float with vanilla ice cream was delicious.

    Overall, I've done it. Maybe I would rather go to a more rural place, live out "My Neighbor Totoro" fantasies. Or check out the suicide forest, But I can do that here in America too, just go into any public park you'll be bound to find a few dead hobos. I just felt too much like an outsider in Tokyo. I felt like I was being stared at with their beady little slanted eyes, flat faces, and high cheekbones. I'm just too much of a Texan. They probably thought I had a gun on me. I don't like Asian food in general, the MSG causes rings on the back of my legs from sitting on the toilet too much.

      Holy shit. I’m also a Texan and no, nobody can tell unless you’re walking around in a cowboy hat. Even if you did you’d get chalked up to just someone in costume. And the whole “gun culture” thing isn’t something most Japs know about even if you do talk to them. Outside of America and English speaking countries maybe Texan culture isn’t this huge ice breaker you think it is. Sure, I’ve met a few chill dudes who would mimic guns with their fingers and play charades as a cowboy if I told them I was Texan, but most will ask you what country that is. You’re an American. Just say that. It’s a good state (being ruined by Californians) but the whole Lone Star ego is so annoying and I say that as someone born here. And the 7 Elevens? Have you been to Japan? All the 7 Elevens there are also staffed by Indians. Or Flips. And the “beady eyes” comment…lol. Just admit it, you hated being judged for being a hambeast in a country full of skinny, on average better-dressed people. You’re probably happy your boyfriend didn’t go with you despite what you say, because you know in the back of your mind he’s be doing double takes at all the JKs walking by

          I even find this when I've been visiting Japan.

          There are white people that go out of their way not to acknowledge other foreigners, as if in their heads they think they are blending in.

          The disappointment on their face when you walk into the same place they were eating and now suddenly the illusion of 'that place that they found' is shattered. I now go out of my way to loudly say hello in English and wave at them.

          I was in town and swung by a party that was being thrown by a US magazine I've worked with in the past. The only other westerner there tried to get me turned away. It was really surreal and he looked pretty foolish when I was greeted by the PR person and later people from the US office turned up.

          I've only ever had this in Japan. Very strange.

          Every white person living in Japan thinks they're better than all the other white people in Japan

          Not only are the people being described bitter and crazy, they constantly roll through any Japan-related thread on here complaining about shit. I just can't comprehend how their brains work.

    Personally, the reason I want to go back so badly is because I have sleepless nights that the chef at my favourite restaurant will retire. He must be pushing 80 now, and I was worried all through covid that they wouldn't reopen. So now it's a race against the clock to return.

Otherwise I don't keep in contact with the girls after. I considered stopping, since the country opened. When the girls need money she'll lower her standards, and the last thing I need is to catch an STD/STI.

        Whats good about UK now though? Im a brit in Japan and while i’d move home in a heartbeat if i brake up with wife, i know full well the UK is fricked and way harder for the same quality of life than here if you are standing on your own two feet.

        Uk house prices and rents are mental. Pay is not much better. You’ll be paying £1200 a month to share a house with 4 brown people minimum, sharing kitchens and toilets with a 30-40 minute commute still.
        In Tokyo, you can get a place to yourself, 35 min to central Tokyo for like £300 a month. Even if you live mega central like city of London equivalent, you’ll find something for £500-600 easily. The same in London will be £2400 for an even smaller apartment.
        You can even find a two floor home with small garden about 40 mins out for like £550. People here dont get paid that much less either. Its a fricking joke how hard it is to progress at home in UK now.

          regardless of what country you're from, this is the main issue.
          even if you have a good job to go back to, if you've spent 5 or 10 years in Japan its really hard to adjust going back.
          living in Japan you get cut off from so much random bullshit, media, drama and shit that you really take it for granted until you eventually leave.

            not sure i agree entirely. maybe i haven't been here long enough.
            I went home for the first time in 3 years last autumn. the impression i had of the UK was so bad due to the only real information i was getting was news. It was so bleak. people starving, surviving off of pasta, cannot afford to boil a potato due to gas costs. everyone freezing to death and cannot afford food. even middle class going to foodbanks. it was insane.

            When i got home? Literally nothing like that. things we a little more expensive. people were buying cheaper branded food. maybe spending a bit less on fun stuff. life was normal. people were cooking and keeping warm all the same. I adjusted fine and didnt really wanna go back to Japan by the end and felt like i wanted to stay for months longer.

    I live in Kyoto right now and have for about a year. I've lived all over the world and Japan stands out to me for three reasons: the women, the society (parts) and the scenery. The scenery can be very breathtaking but is disheveled by the humidity in the summer making it difficult to truly enough being in nature; the women are not sexy to me and my western sensibility that values waist to hip ratio over cuteness, but cuteness has a certain appeal and the Japanese do it best simple as; it is extremely quiet over here, very peaceful and consequently an ideal environment for studying as western propaganda and talking points are generally absent from discourse and every day life which is extremely cathartic.

    Unless I am missing something, the Japanese aren't really a fun people. People from Osaka and to a lesser extent Tokyo are fun but the overwhelming majority of Japanese youth are too involved in job hunting and shit to have fun.

    I'm pursuing a masters right now but am unsure as to whether or not I would like to continue in academia. If any fellow Japanbros have advice regarding employment, I'd love to hear it

            they have no reason to hire a foreigner over Mr Nakamura who'll do 3x the hours for half the pay.
            your options are literally Teach English until you get married and maybe open your own bar, which ends you up at $8/hr and permanently hungover.

    I never had so much success with women (when I first installed bumble in Osaka, I had 250+ matches in the span of a few hours and fricked a girl the same night), I had people calling me handsome,kakkoi or ikemen several times in the streets and bars (guys too which was weird).
    The scenery, the calm and respect was so relaxing.
    The only thing I was disappointed by was the food, I found everything to be overrated, especially wagyu , which is just like eating beef fat,

          Better dressed than most 4chinners.

          Coming to Japan in December and want to do something different. I've travelled there quiet extensively so far.

          I haven't seen Hokkaido & Tohoku or anything up North yet, the North on face value seems to be a cold and uninspiring and less Japanese version of Kyushu basically though. So I can't seem to get myself excited to go up there.

          With so much to do in Tokyo why would I spend some of that time in <Non descript Akita> vs just more time in Tokyo and do day trips from Tokyo if I am bored.

          If people meet girls here are they suggusting local love hotels in Tokyo or taking them back to their rooms in Tokyo?

    I had similar feelings and decided to move to Japan in early 2020. I have a reasonably good job, now I'm earning around 11M yen (which is not a lot at the current exchange rate but is an okay salary for Japan).

    Japan is fun but what I didn't realize is just how isolating this experience would be. I lived in 7 different countries before, and even those where English isn't the main language were never as bad as Japan. Most of the people who speak English here are weird expats or gaijin hunters; 99% of normal people will not be able to have a conversation with you beyond "hello how are you". It is just depressing to be here, in such a lively metropolis, and be completely alone without being able to communicate with anyone.
    I have been making efforts to learn Japanese and it's going okay, but after 3 years my level is nowhere near being able to comfortably make close friends and enjoy all aspects of the culture. I am not sure if I'll be able to devote more time of my life to this place as I don't actually know if I will enjoy it even if I do learn the language properly, it might all be a sisyphean task for all I know.

    I know people like to respond "well duh what did you expect" to posts like this, but it genuinely is NOT like this in other countries. Japan is a unique mix of weird antisocial culture, people who are autistic by nature, a terrible education system that doesn't prepare you for anything, and a lack of interest in other cultures. It is just not fun, I don't know how else to express it exactly.

    Sorry for the blogpost. Make sure you really know what you're getting into if you come here for long term. It's probably easier if you're a weeb (I'm not)

It is just not fun, I don't know how else to express it exactly.
      I've been testing out Japan (tokyo) for 1 month to get a sense of the life here. I don't think you'd be wrong to come to the conclusion that the average Japanese person just lives a very...mundane and uninspiring life.

      I think I will be striking it off my short list of countries to expat too
      If it were super worth it, I'd not hesistate to revive my Japanese studies and grind hard at it for 2 years, but I don't think it would really unlock

      If you haven't made many roots or gotten a proper Japanese gf in 3 years, I'd really be thinking hard about the question you brought up: whether Japan is worth more investment of your limited time on Earth. Even if you do crack it, your monolingual japanese friends/girl will be non-functional outside of japan. they won't be adventuring without being dependent on you for everything

      For me, my short list will now be Sichuan, china/northern thailand/bangkok/and maybe even Kuala Lumpur (malaysian chinese girls are fire).
      I will conclude by saying that I do wish that there was a "Japan for white people" somewhere in the world

      I'll keep Japan on my radar for if I ever need a low cost life reset, restoring an Akiya house in the countryside, but I'm only 30 years old and wouldn't be in such a position for at bare minimum 5 years

    my experience with this girl was a rollercoaster of emotions: sometimes she is so caring and loving, sometimes she barely texts me. in my experience jap girls are very cute and naive but cold for western standards.
    I even thought about going to Japan to study and live with her but now I feel that I'm a bit too old for that and I don't want to sacrifice my life here for a girl who could leave me for the next guy.
    as for Japan country is great but overrated, food is kino and traveling with the JR pass is awesome, big cities are soulless though.

    He's into that anime shit, I like it too but back in the late 2000s before normies took it over, he even has some anime tattoos on his right arms and regular tatts on hit other

    He's Hispanic but idk if he has dreads now and is also short, he told me he ended up fricking some girl last time he went earlier this year and his friend was detained or arrested for a bit idk

    He called me drunk at 2 am last Saturday telling me to go with him this year since I called him drunk from Puerto Vallarta like a week before just bullshiting

    I've fricked asian girls here in Southern California so I guess my look is attractive to some, the ones I fricked were Vietnamese and Chinese, I don't think I've ever fricked a Japanese girl though, I'm Latino with skin tone like bad bunny

    I might go to Japan with him for a week in October but idk yet, Im fine with fricking latinas here and in Mexico

      It's a larp.

      I went on a bus trip one time, and a Japanese guy sat next to me. He sat on the bus the whole way double up, with his head down, like he was sleeping. He also kept leaning on me, even after I shoved him several times. Eventually, I had to say stop leaning on me. He seemed to fall asleep again, and leaned on me again. I think he was on drugs.

      Is it normal for sleepy people to lean on eachother on Japan on public transport?

      had it happen a few times on the train.

      >Everyone is minding their own business and doing something.
      >Everyone is fricking beautiful and the fashion styles are easy on the eyes
      Thats a couple of my reasons why I go every year. I just got back a couple weeks ago and waiting patiently for next years flights to start opening up.

        Chuo line (goes all the way from Shinjuku to Takao/Ome/Hachioji) almost always guarantees that shit.
        On the way out of Tokyo, it's people tired from their dog shit jobs. They can't afford to rent closer to downtown and have to stay in Hachioji instead.
        If on the way in, then it's people tired from playing around.

        I like hiking around Mitake during weekends due to how accessible it is. You're also allowed to set up a day camp and bbq shit around that river, swimming is also fine. To be honest I'm not sure if it's 100% allowed, it's just that I've seen so many people do it I've started doing it as well.

          I probably spent like 4 weeks in Hachioji. The locals laughed at me when I said I stayed there all the time, but I enjoyed it. Never had a qt3.14 sleep on me on the train though.

          Are beards tolerated in japan?

          You can have them. The women aren't going to like them though. I was a beardcel for the 3 months I was there.

    31 year old Britbong here. I visited Japan for the first time ever this April just passed and I fricking loved it. I visited Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. Did 7 days in Tokyo and 7 days around Osaka.

    What I loved is:
    >the amazing public transportation
    >the amount of stuff to do in the cities
    >the cleanliness
    >the respectful Japanese people

    When you compare this to the UK which has:
    >the worst public transportation in the world. some trains are once every hour if that
    >hardly anything to do in cities that doesn't involve just drinking and then going home
    >extremely dirty because Brits don't respect the country and throw trash on the floor and cigarette butts out their car windows
    >the worst kinda people that will randomly abuse you in the street (especially kids/teenagers from low income neighbourhood attacking you)

    I kinda realised the UK is shitty in comparison to Japan. Although one thing I suppose I like here is that people are generally very friendly overall but extremely passive-aggressive. It's easy to have a chat with a stranger in the UK but if you honk at someone in in your car who cut you up, expect them to follow you and want to start a fight.

    There is also nothing to do in the UK. No shrines or cool things to see. Only 3 mountains (Ben Nevis, Snowdon & Scafell) which I have all climbed. The cities are dead and disgusting, particularly the Northwest cities like Liverpool and Manchester. The women are all fat and act like men.

    I'm already planning to go back to Japan in November. Frick me I hate the UK so much

      I'm not a bongbro but I'm a frog just living across the Channel, and [let'sSaySpoilerWorks]while we have the superior vistas, mountains and shit[/spoiler] you can't tell me there's absolutely nothing in the UK. I enjoyed my time in Scotland, beautiful vistas and old stones, the overall atmosphere was great. I also liked the English countryside. Never went to Wales, but I intend to do so someday. I agree with the cities overall, but I don't like cities anyway, and your little countryside villages and towns were comf and roadtrip friendly.

      At least you have self awareness.

      The anglosphere (America, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand) is a hellish and tyrannically place to live. The governments are paranoid and tyrannically. They constantly spy on other countries and their own citizens. They have special organizations to ensure that you pay your tax or they jail you. You will unironically find more "freedom" in South America or Eastern Europe.

      Don't forget Justin Trudeau enforced a "war time emergency act" against his own citizens AND froze their bank accounts for protesting against COVID vaccines.

      Whats good about UK now though? Im a brit in Japan and while i’d move home in a heartbeat if i brake up with wife, i know full well the UK is fricked and way harder for the same quality of life than here if you are standing on your own two feet.

      Uk house prices and rents are mental. Pay is not much better. You’ll be paying £1200 a month to share a house with 4 brown people minimum, sharing kitchens and toilets with a 30-40 minute commute still.
      In Tokyo, you can get a place to yourself, 35 min to central Tokyo for like £300 a month. Even if you live mega central like city of London equivalent, you’ll find something for £500-600 easily. The same in London will be £2400 for an even smaller apartment.
      You can even find a two floor home with small garden about 40 mins out for like £550. People here dont get paid that much less either. Its a fricking joke how hard it is to progress at home in UK now.

      As these two point out, push factors are also a reason a lot of people choose to move to Japan. Especially for Brits.
      Japan is flawed but I genuinely couldn't stand living in London.
      If I ever got sick and tired of Japan I would try somewhere else but I will never return to the UK except to see family.

    Coming up on the 10 year anniversary of my last time in Japan. Should I go back?

    I was a 19 year old weeb last time and spent 3 months backpacking around somewhat autistically. Is it worth it for normies? I think I only had a good time last time because of my autistic levels of engagement with weeb culture and jap history.

    Digital nomad in Mexico (winters) and Kazakhstan (summers) right now. Mostly interested in music, food, and meeting new people if I go back.

      I don't know what he's asking either, but in a more surreal way. I assume you just think his question makes no sense.

        I probably have some sort of idea of the meaning behind the question, but technology and the internet are the biggest drivers of change these past twenty years, and it's stupid to think that the second largest city in Japan has somehow hasn't been touched in a way that would make it feel like Tokyo two decades ago. Globalization means the Osaka has had to adapt to tourism and all the things that come along with it, and I would argue that in some ways it's moved beyond/faster than Tokyo in some regards. Take a look at Tobita that is way more foreigner-friendly than any location in Tokyo when it comes to prostitution. The trains and subways and signage are in Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and English to accommodate the swarms of tourists in the city. While each city has its certain stereotypes about personalities and atmosphere, the internet has blurred the spread of culture wether it be fashion and clothing, art, and music, not to mention usage of social media driving everything, which further erases the feel of regional differences.

      Ive just booked hotels in osaka and tokyo. Public onsen and good looking jp breakfest in Osaka included, staying at aki in tokyo, 13 days in total, it costed me around 1100dol but I travel with my gf and we split.
      Both of those are 3 star, i imagine that you can find something like 60dol/night for solo room/apartament if you pick less popular area outside the city center surrundings + pick lower standard.
      Ive seen some hotels that are close to highspeed roads and train tracks offering very cheap deals, but you risk noise pollution, all of that can be found on bookingcom, just sort accordingly. Otherwise try airbnb, there are some subpar looking places but they seem cheaper than hotels. Also if you use booking pick hotels with genious status to recive up to 10-20% back.

          Just to be sure it was 1100 total so after the split its like around 550dol per person.
          I think that capsupes arent best option for solo travel, you can basicly get a room for similar price, albeit with worse standard, but who the frick prefers being stuck in the row of windowed bed chambers, i cant imagine going like this with >1week trips. Just now I browsed some airbnb and found some ok 1 room street lvl apartment for ~50dol, just book in advance, something like 5/4months prior works best.

    I was there for 3 years, came back to america.

    First thing I noticed, I am attracted to white women. If I go back to Japan, there are no white women unless I work on a base again, and they're all taken... unless...

    Hafu girls have great asses, it seems like a rule. Only got to hook up with one. My jap gf was fricking crazy but will probably be the best "housewife" I've ever had.

    I want to go back, and I just had an interview for a company there. I said something stupid like Japan WA daisuke tbh. I laughed about it afterwards. It went well... If I did go back I couldn't work for the govt again or teach english, it would be miserable.
