Kanji_The_Wanderer 02-05-2007 07:00 PM

I wish I knew, who knows. I don't have that kind of cash right now. Maybe I'll have it by 2008 so we can hang in Japan! lol that be sweet.

Maku 02-05-2007 07:10 PM

I'm going around Easter next year if I can get the money >.<

Hisuwashi 02-05-2007 07:55 PM

Why Easter..? On your own?

Maku 02-05-2007 08:01 PM

Going over in Easter holidays for 2 weeks with 6 people for a sakura matsuri.

Hisuwashi 02-05-2007 08:04 PM

Are the 6 people friends or what then?

kainpendragon 02-05-2007 08:05 PM

I was planing for 2008 but don't look like it will happen. maybe late 08 or 09. money sucks

Kuroneko 02-05-2007 08:06 PM

I just got back so I don't think that I will be back there for at least 2 or 3 years

Maku 02-05-2007 08:10 PM

Yeh, well actually it's 6 friends including myself.
They can all get their money pretty easily but I might end up having to get a loan >.<

Hisuwashi 02-05-2007 08:10 PM

Ok... and I never said when I was going... well, in truth, I'm not sure when I will go but I'd love to go one day...

Guro 02-06-2007 12:12 AM

I'll be going in...2009, I think.
Yeah. I'm going with my Japanese class, so...that'll be interesting...
Needless to say I'll be spending tons of money. D;

I'm also going with my friends after senior year some time.

aldine 02-06-2007 02:28 AM

Vesperd 02-06-2007 06:18 AM

GreenEyes 02-06-2007 11:46 AM

Vesperd 02-06-2007 12:06 PM

curious_jane 02-06-2007 02:50 PM

2008 does sound like a good year! I'm planning to go between then and 2009.
It almost sounds like the jf is having a field trip together:p . maybe we'll see each other:ywave: . I want to go all around and see the different parts of Japan, does anyone know how long that would take?:D

Jollyaard 02-06-2007 06:10 PM

I'm going in about 44 days:) - On an Anime and Manga Tour with a few other like minded people!!!! Anyone else going on an organised tour?

Orkrist 02-06-2007 08:11 PM

I'm going in march for a short, 5-days trip, but I'm looking forward to go in 2008 when I'll pass my matriculate tests. :)

kripoi 02-06-2007 09:16 PM

I will go as an forien exchange student. First i gotta get more info on the student exchange program! man... i really wanna go to Japan.

Hoolan 02-06-2007 09:34 PM

I have a plan to go 2011 when im 18 or 2014 when im 21 depending what the drinking age over there is .I'll proply be goin with friends wjo are also obssed with japan any wanna join us have a huge get to together?

jasonbvr 02-06-2007 11:40 PM

There is no drinking age for foreigners unless you look like a twelve year old. I assume that all Japanese automatically think you are an English teacher or a college student. But the legal age is twenty in case you were wondering.

And if you have trouble buying it at a store, just find a beer vending machine. I swear to you I saw one last week that sold the one liter cans of Asahi. It was massive.

Hoolan 02-10-2007 06:52 PM

Cool thats a bit stupid tho putting alchohol vending machines on the street how do they stop kids buying it?

luna2 02-10-2007 09:56 PM

plannin to go about 5-7 yrs frm now wid my future hubby lol^^
gona go look for a place there

NekoNekoChan 02-11-2007 03:17 AM

Well, I'm going to be moving there mid to late twenties, I hope. I'll probably visit sometime after my high school graduation.

Ksim4000 02-13-2007 01:16 AM

Actually.......probably a hope in hell's chance on this end. :D Still, I wish the very best of you luck with your dreams, may they be merry and come true.

Well, the vending machines are usually in relatively non-residential parts of town, out in the open where everyone can see you buying it, or in areas where you wouldn't really expect to find kids hanging out.

They are trying to develop and install cigarrette vending machines, and I assume beer machines, that will recognize a smart card ID. What's a smart card? It is a card with a computer chip embedded that contains all the info. This way you have to scan your ID to buy the cigarettes from a vending machine. Cigarette vending machines are far more prevalent than booze vendors.

But all this being said, Japanese in general are more law abiding and respectful than just about any other population I have experienced.

curious_jane 02-13-2007 04:00 PM

gotta luv them for it to!:rheart:

CoolNard 02-13-2007 04:00 PM

Another reason for me to migrate to japan :P

curious_jane 02-13-2007 04:01 PM

whoa! i just beat you!:mtongue:

Excessum 02-13-2007 11:41 PM

Excessum is planning to go to check out sakura blooming festival this year, but he is afraid that he will not have enough money for it and most probably he will need to go in-to some street-fighting event to earn cash for return ticket... and considering the fact that he was kicked out of almost every martial arts school he went to, he is not coming back earlier than year 2008... :confused:

Maku 02-13-2007 11:44 PM

Don't worry, you'll get deported after 3 months.

Excessum 02-14-2007 01:33 AM

Dear sirs,
Good day,

I stayed 50 days that was like a dream and I wish to visit again this a wonderful Division country before beauty, I said perhaps there are a beautiful country of Japan, however, Nee did not have the opportunity to visit, But after I visited two Arab countries and Italy. Japan still living in a beautiful picture myself, I hope from my heart that opportunity back again.
