I will be visiting Japan from March 18th to 29th. I will be staying at the New Izu Hotel in Tokyo.
I was hoping there were some Japan natives who might be interested in showing a couple gaijin some cool things to do. maybe help us get settled in a bit. I am studying japanese so I can try my best to speak if need be. This is my firast trip and I want to experience as much as I can.

Thanks in Advance.

ain't no natives here. we chased them all off. sorry :(
however, there are some bitter foreigners who may be of some assistance
and search "penfriend" etc in the forums to find pages/sites that allow correspondence with japanese peeps. good luck

I think that I can offer some information. 🙂
Is the first target Akihabara? 😊
Akihabara can walk from a hotel.
There is a shopping district of "AME-YOKO" near Ueno station.
A shopping district of here is famous for a bargain sale.

original poster needs to buy a book (or several)
"LET'S GO JAPAN" is the best (imo)

get the bilingual atlas map of Tokyo...that helps, too....then look up Tokyo and other nearby sites, like Kamakura or Nikko (not really nearby, but it is a day trip) or some other place, like the Landmark Tower in Yokohama, or their Chinatown, and you should have a pretty full schedule.... :D

go to it...

i agree. one reason why i like "let's go" is that they have bilingual maps as well
one thing that i haven't done (that i wanna do in march) is visit the tsukiji fish markets
if i wake up early enough, that is

I recommend "MANNDARAKE" of Broadway Building in a shopping district of "Nakano". :eek:
Togoshi Ginza shopping district may be interesting.
I recommend "bell common" "shabu-shabu bower Kobeya Baking" of Aoyama if I eat shabu-shabu.
A course dish does it more than 4,000 yen. 😌
Please try to eat pepper-and-salt meat.
The meat is delicious.

thank you everyone, i have a few guides and maps already so thats not the point, the point of the htread originally was to make new friends in japan and maybe hang out when i get there, maps and guides aren't gouing to show all the "cool" things some of the natives may tend to enjoy.

hiroyuki, here in Arizona we have a Shabu-shabu restaraunt and it is very good, i am very interested in trying it in japan too thank you for the information.

The correct translation is:

Zannen nagara, ima watashi wa Fukuoka ni imasu.

I regret to say (I'm sorry) that I am now in Fukuoka

go to it...

I heartily recommend those two places!!! The Landmark Tower is so amazing! i must have stood and gawp at it most of the time i was in yokohama. 🙂 and the china town area has some great little shops and funky looking restaurants!! Go to Windjammers Jazz bar, they have live bands! the one i saw was so good! a nice vodka and coke and chilling out to jazz, grand!

It is the season when cherry blossoms bloom in the middle of April from the end of March. 🧑‍🎤

Because the flowering time of a cherry tree changes by a climate of this year, I write it here as soon as information enters. :atsui:
