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.

I honestly never had Japanese food.
You're missing out, dude. unagi, saba, kani, various types of makizushi, all kinds of awesomely cooked fish, miso soup, etc.
