    Default National Lampoon's Japanese Adventure

    As if there weren't already enough reasons for you to wish you were me, at the start of next month I go to Japan to start a year of teaching English. Since this is easily the most unconditionally Japan-obsessed community of people I converse with, I figured y'all would like to know. Also, if anyone has any ideas on things that I simply must see or do or anything like that, while I'm over there, let me know!

    I'm going to mainly be stationed at a Junior High in what I gather is a fairly small village in Kyoto Prefecture. Should be pretty sweet, I reckon. I'm looking forward to going and checking out the country. Getting up to all sorts of highjinks (although that might be a little trickier than I had hoped since I'll be in a smaller place). Also teaching some kids some stuff.

    So, any thoughts?

    Try out those toilets that squirt water into your ass. Go visit a Japanese strip club (and also bring back news on whether if they shoot live porn on the streets). Buy a ton of Japanese gadgets, etc. And lastly, don't forget the hentai!!!11!1!111!

    Crossdress and see how many times you get groped on the subway. ^_~

    Uh, aside from that, have fun. Just tell us if all the rumours and stuff are true, if you know.

    All good ideas

    And as for getting groped, I hear I'll be getting enough of that as a guy from my students, impressed with meeting a white male.

    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Hahaha. God, your job sucks. You're not really a teacher. You're a robot who is programmed to teach English. Don't be surprised though. And hope the housing they provided you with is decent. Also purchase a bike if whatever program you work for didn't provide you with one.

    Edit:

    And this board isn't really Japan obsessed. Many of the posters here know what Japan is really like, probably by word of mouth, or from vacations and seminars, like a few of us. You want Japan obsessed? Gaia Online or whatever that other new place was. They will proclaim you a god.

    @Newbie: No, avoid those damn toilets that squirt water up your ass -- the first time I encountered one of those, I completely freaked out. They scare me.

    Well, the only thing I remember is that you have to go eat as much different kinds of food as you possibly can. Yes, you must eat ramen, (people who say they love ramen but then only eat cup ramen need to realise what real ramen tastes like) and also sashimi on rice. Those were my absolute favourites. (Neither of them have egg on them.)

    Their metro goes everywhere, but is the most annoying convoluted thing ever with absolutely no English in sight. From what I remember, some trains come at different times, and someone told me that once the train actually split in half and one half carries on, the other half stays at the station. The locals are very nice to tourists, though, and sometimes you will have better luck with an educated local because not all the station employees speak English!

    But yeah, I don't do all that much sightseeing when I go to Japan. I mostly buy stuff.

    @AKofC: I don't really like Japan. Well, I don't like it any more than anywhere else I've been to. The food is good? Gaia Online is absolutely terrifying though, although I went there for a while, and I need to go back because I owe people some pictures. A standard reaction would probably start with "OMG!!!! YOU'RE GOING TO JAPAN????" and carry on from there.

    Try to see how many different girls you can sleep with in the year you're there.
