My advice is to make friends and wash your hands when you go to the restroom. Just kidding, have fun! 👍

don't make poo-poo in your trousers if they are white.

this one actually goes in most places, not just Japan.

Do you have your maps in both languages and and underwearing fanny bag ? The necklace type are the best if you ask me. Keep your passpost and documents in the fanny bag, not in your luggage. Take your personal medicine, prescriptions, spare glasses or lens, favorite softwares if you plan to use a PC, a backup of FAV's from your browser (IE, etc). No funny stuff though; they're very strict like anyplace else. :p Have fun there ! 🙂

Don't take any drugs with you, or weapons. Ceramic knives don't beep through the metal detector, but they show up on the x-ray. They keep metal knives in first class. :wavey:

MOST places. But I swear i've seen a few drunk Japanese salarymen break that rule.

Seriously. I know you're there to learn Japanese and the culture of the land and want Japanese friends, but don't ignore the foreign community. They are a great resource to fall back on and network through as they are all going through what you are in some way. Too often do some folks go there and ignore their fellow gaijin completely, almost snobishly, then when things fall apart and they want an understanding shoulder to lean on, they find themselves alone.
