Back from Japanland!

Sorry for some delay, I've had some trouble getting readjusted.
Uh, I didn't really know where to post this considering the old forum is archived, but I'm just saying it'll probably take me a few days before I get caught up on everything that happened here.

This is the third TVGR fiasco I've missed, which I guess isn't a bad thing.
Hope everything's alright now! I'm looking forward to talking with you guys again and talking about my trip, but give me some time.

Nice to see you all again!

Welcome back! I can imagine it'll take a bit of readjusting with the whole new forum, but yeah I wouldn't worry about having missed the transition (it wasn't very pleasant).

Looking forward to hearing how your trip was Smile

it's ok to suck, sucking is not bad, just try and aim to always do your best!

Welcome back! Did your vacation go anything like Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo?

..or did it involve less fighting ink monsters?

OH YEAH ABOUT THE TRIP

Well, I'm still having trouble putting it into words, but it was more then perfect.
okay sentimental part over

I actually went with a student ambassador organization (read as: 30 other high schoolers) because there was no way my parents were ever going so this was my only option for now. It was really fun though! I think if I went on my own I wouldn't know what to do or where to go, so it really helped me see as much as possible.

It was 2 weeks. We stayed on Honshu (the main island) the whole time, but in it visited Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Hakone, Gifu, Takayama, Hiroshima, Miyajima, and Kyoto.
Tokyo was the best part for shopping, definitely. I didn't get too many crazy things, but just walking around looking was great!
AND OH GOSH AKIHABARA

OH AND WE ACTUALLY WENT IN A MAID CAFE BY SURPRISE
I JUST
(couldn't take pictures of the maido-sans)

[Image: IMG_20140630_034924285.jpg]

BUT THE BEST PART WAS THIS
[Image: IMG_20140630_052511723.jpg]
notable sw33t l00t:
-Inkay/Reuniclus/Espurr figures
-Ash XY hat
-so many snacks
-Nichijou (2 volumes)
-Doraemon anthology (I think it has all of them)
-Jojo's Bizarre Adventure vol. 1 (that and the other 2 are all in Japanese, obviously)
-Kendama ball game
-lots of brochures/pamphlets
-Year of the Ox chopsticks/rice bowl from host family ♥
-Studio Ghibli soundtrack

And I have a million more pictures but I'm too lazy Tokyo had most of the Vidya game stuff

But in a really condensed list what I did:
-Went through lots of Tokyo (Takeshita, Harajuku, Asakusa, Roppongi, Akihabara, Nijubashi, etc.) and saw shrines/stores
-Climbed Mt. Fuji! (well only about 100m in the middle) but it was really foggy so it was hard to see much
-Stayed at a traditional styled inn in Hakone! I tried the Onsen and wore Yukata!
-Did a 3 night homestay with a Japanese family in Gifu! (BEST PART--they didn't speak English so I really got to practice Japanese!)
-Tried tea leaf picking and morning markets in Takayama (I touched the pacific ocean for the first time!)
-Went to Hiroshima peace memorial park
-Visited Itsukushima shrine and grand torii gate on Miyajima (there were deer everywhere! One tried to eat my shirt)
-Golden pavillion and Nijo castle in Kyoto! Also walked around through Gion district
-STUDIO GHIBLI STORE IN KYOTO

AND THE FOOD OH GOSH I MISS IT ALREADY
I had so many things but just to name a few:
-Cow tongue (goooood)
-Takoyaki (aw yiss)
-Squid sushi roll (not the tentacles and that was hard to eat)
-Eel and salmon egg
-Onigiri from convenience stores (the best)
-Okonomiyaki in Hiroshima (SO GOOD)
-Melon bread (already miss it)
-Choco cornet (and the inner Konata in me didn't know which end to eat it from)
-pickled plum (8LUH)
-Sweetfish, with face and all! (don't eat the face/tail, but they were there Surprise)
-Shrimp burger from MacDonalds (yes yes yes)

Kat, the closest i got to rhythm games was the Namco Taiko drum game, which was lots of fun
I didn't find many Bemani things! I'm assuming they're rare

but it was so great! I'll add more stuff later but if you have any more questions I probably forgot to mention things but gah

Sounds like you had a lot of fun!

I wish I could visit a foreign country. E-Man went to France, you went to Japan, and I'm still stuck here in boring ol' America.

also you are entitled to your opinion but I don't think you can measure country stupidity from the lack of action figures or niche hobby stuff

Sorry for being blunt and serious in a probably joke post but it's kinda shitty to say that nonetheless
