Oh phew, I was just about to call you a weaboo.

Anyway, it may seem good on the outside, but some places in Japan really aren't that great.

I love Japanese food and there's a lot of great Japanese animation and movies. And their mythology is fascinating, but then again, pretty much all mythology is fascinating. Japan wouldn't be my first choice of place to visit, though it would be cool to go there. I heard a lot of them are extremely prejudiced, but then, that in itself is kind of a prejudiced statement. That's not the reason, but it sure doesn't help. There are several European countries that seem more interesting to me.

Anyway, Tokyo looks like a very pretty city. If I went to Japan, I'd want to go to Akihabara, which is full of video game related stuff, and Aokigahara, which is a creepy forest full of people who've committed suicide for some reason. That might make me seem weird for being interested, but whatever. It even has signs discouraging people from killing themselves. People often go there to loot the bodies. There are skulls and bones that are tinted green from lying there. It also happens to be near Mt. Fuji.

You're missing out, dude. unagi, saba, kani, various types of makizushi, all kinds of awesomely cooked fish, miso soup, etc.

otherwise it's too much of a hassle for me for some place i don't really want to visit.

Many more than expected do speak a lick of English, but only really in city areas. The only time you'll see it anywhere else is if a store owner is excited to see an English speaker, and uses his broken English to impress you into buying something. You'll have to look for the Brazilian-Japanese types of girls to find wide hips / big breasts

you'll have to read up on the history of Brazil and Japan, good place is to start on Wikipedia for TL;DR versions. Essentially, since the early 1900s, Brazil is the #1 place of Japanese aggregation outside Japan-many of the kids end up returning to their country of ethnicity for schooling. Japan as well has a great number of Brazilians, though I don't think it nearly truncates over half a million people quite yet. Japanese kids with a little Brazilian in them look pretty different from their expected lankiness, instead appearing with wider bodily features (female) / more hair on their faces (men)

Why would you need more than about 300 of these?

More protection. Japan couldn't get em' because they cost to much. The price for an Armored core has tripled you know!

I've been once, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. We went to Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, and Kyoto. I really loved the food and they have these vending machines everywhere that serve both cold and warm beverages.

Yeah, they produce so much animation and video games, it kind of makes me wonder why they never seem to have an appreciation for live-action stuff. I would love to see an anime re-endition of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"! Imagine all the anime dudes who would have cameos and interact with the real world. We already had something like that for our country, every main animation studio should do something like that!

I think Japan is pretty cool. But I'd rather not go there as of yet considering the awkward language barriers. Also I do not know their customs. And they have like, a million. lol

Here's how it apparently is: a decent place to visit in the right places, but a fucking miserable and culturally repressive place to live in if you, you know, actually live there.

I knew quite a few Japanese dorm students at my old high school, and I still remember the odd horror story about Japan, or how America/California felt so good with nobody giving a shit about what you were doing.
