Japan Trip

Recommended Posts

Imo, End of March to April (Sakura season) & November (Autumn colors) is the ideal time to visit.

Not too hot/cold, granted I prefer winter over summer.

I would love to go in November for the next trip!

@Geeman nice! I can't wait to go again. It can't come soon enough. What cities are you heading to?

Yes mate. With Thailand Turkey Hong kong Cuba Berlin and Amsterdam inbetween!  Live for those holidays! 

Was about to ask you guys for recommendations outside of Tokyo? We are in Tokyo for about 7 days with a day in Yokohama. Looking to spend 2 nights elsewhere. Suggestions? We'll be pretty shopped out by then.

If you like monkeys you can go to Nagano, they have a monkeys park nearby where wild monkeys go into the natural hot springs. On the way back towards the Village we stopped by a shrine and even got attacked by a monkey of another group!

Nagano itself was nice and quiet compared to Kyoto and Tokyo. But there are probably way more cool cities to see. 

Ps: I'm so jealous of your trips, wish I was able to do that

I would say something like Nagano or northern Japan for something more relaxing and beautiful instead of a major city.

Even without going to Flat Head, I would love to go back to Nagano. It's stunningly beautiful there.

Yesterday I visited some second hand stores. There are a lot of them in Tokyo and they even sell some quality Japanese denim. 

Saw a pair of momotaro's, orslow jeans and a lot of flat head in Bingo. I think bingo is the biggest second hand store. Some of the jeans still had the tag attached and the other ones didn't had any fades yet.

Geeman, if you haven't been to Fuji it's well worth it; it was actually my favorite part of visiting Tokyo, aside from the Robot Restaurant. :P

I bought some denimz! 

Got a pair of kapital jeans in their cisco cut. Great jeans and a nice change in Wright after wearing 21+ oz for 4 years. 

Bought a sort of kimono shirt as well.
