Travelling to Japan

Postby Helios » Mon May 11, 2020 9:11 pm #561471

Due to current circumstances, I've had time to plan another trip for when things go back to normal and travel re-opens.
I just wanted this to be a thread about going to Japan. People who have gone, and places they recommend, or people who are interested in travelling, and might want some questions answered. Things to do, places to book a hotel, and so on.

Here's an example of what the appeal of Japan was, to me at least. A multi-story museum about the history of tobacco and salt in Japan. It features a replica mayan temple area, a saint Kinga statue carved out of salt from Poland (also the salt museums mascot), and the history of the sale of tobacco in Japan.
This all for 100 yen, or 93 cents american.
I had a list of museums or other places I wanted to visit in Tokyo or Japan. I was able to bunch of visit of these on my first trip, and can answer questions about them.

/trv/put together an autistic supermap of sights, restaurants, and shopping if you want a more comprehensive list.

There's a certain technophile subculture, that will create a landmark or museum of something that they put a lot of cool new tech into. This video being a perfect example, they turned a ship they were proud of, into a museum you can go to in Yokohama. The fact it ran on Diesel instead of coal on the 1930s, water sealing doors, and non-electronic smoke detectors and CO2 extinguishers. They have love letters to works people made, and you can feel it when you're there. The craftsmen wanting to show you their dedication to the craft.

Also you can get a bottle of whiskey for under 6USD

Man, I'm not going back until shit goes back to normal.

" The government is planning to lure back foreign visitors by covering half of their travel expenses.

The 1.35 trillion yen ($12.5 billion) program could start in July if novel coronavirus infections subside soon, Hiroshi Tabata, chief of the agency, told a press conference. "
Might be the cheapest time ever to visit, when they do re-open

They have to drink with their bosses, and show up to work on time the following day.
