    Aside from drunken adventures in Canada, it will be my first time outside of my smelly country. I'll be there for two weeks. Or forever, once I accidentally get involved with a sex slave scat ring, hide stolen diamonds inside of a goat, and mistakenly get thrown into a K-1 fight where I strangely become the victor by pure luck, inciting a riot and a knife fight in the ring that will leave me with a cool but embarrassing scar near my right eye.

    So what should I be doing there, besides the above? If anyone lives or has had a great deal of experience there or just saw something neat on TV, I'm open to any and all suggestions. Especially outside of Tokyo too.

    I am jealous.

    I mean, not of the getting-raped stuff.

    I didn't actually mention getting raped exactly. Where is your mind today?

    (correct clever [creepy] answer: where it should be)

    Tokyo is the best damn city on earth, believe me. You're going to have a blast.

    Now now, isn't that a little biased Jean?

    Broadway Nakano is a great place to enjoy picking up tons of anime and manga related stuff. Hit Nakano Stn and go out the North Exit. Go straight up the street into the covered shopping arcade. It's about a four minute walk from the entrance. I took a friend there last week and we caught some action: a grisled undercover cop and a tall businessman in a suit actually bodily restraining (arm around the throat) a younger third man who had tried to pickpocket someone. We thought at first it might have been yakuza biz, especially with the old man growling... Don't fuck with me. like he was going to eat the kid's nuts for breakfast, but then to clothed cops showed up and they lead the young man away with the grisled old dude. Quite some action. Never seen anything like it in my ten years in Japan. In any case, keep going up the street, you will hit an area of comic shops, figure shops, cosplay shops etc. Even if you aren't 'otaku', it's a fun place to look at everything.

    PS I hope you have lots of money. Don't fool yourself, you will need nothing less than $80 USD a day (minus any hotel expenses) to enjoy yourself without going broke within the first two days. If you need any more advice, contact me directly at made.in.dna ATMARK gmail.com. I am a vet expat of Japan.
