Scarf’s Japan Survival Guide:
Advice from an Expert Veteran Seasoned Average Traveler

For anyone planning to go to Japan (aka Mr Cat Dog) here is some helpful reading.

First, a lot of people will speak rudimentary English. Many will know at least enough to help lost travelers. Airports, train stations, and big places like that will be the least worst places to get lost. Don’t be afraid to ask people for help wherever you are though. You never know who might...

Japan Trip Summary pt. II: Lost in Translation

Posted September 1st, 2011 at 10:10 AM by Esper (asdf)

Day 5, Monday: Kyoto Again



So it was only on returning to Kyoto the previous day that I realized how close I was staying to the old imperial palace and I thought this would be a good day to see it. It turned out to be in the center of a very large park that had once been part of a much larger area belonging to various nobles and high ranking people. The palace itself was monstrously huge, covered a large area, and had a great big wall around it. Sadly, the palace itself did not open...

Japan Trip Summary pt. I: Guilty Pleasures

Posted August 26th, 2011 at 02:28 PM by Esper (asdf)

So if you didn't know I spent the last week in Japan. Ostensibly I was there for a friend's wedding in Kyoto, but since that was only going to be one day and I didn't expect she'd have any free time my trip was mostly about me and doing the things I wanted to do.

Here's a rundown of the first 4 days from my 8 day trip.

Day 1, Thursday: The Long Lost Apartment



So I leave San Francisco in the middle of the day. The plane is actually early into Kansai International...

I’ve leaving for Japan tomorrow for a week in Kyoto and Osaka and the shopping is going to be fantastic. Oh yeah, and all that cultural stuff, too. I have saved almost every penny from my last 5 or 6 months of paychecks for this trip so I can buy anything I find that I want.

This is gonna be the best trip ever.

Don’t miss me too much. :D

P.S. dsfagagdaffs I hate flying and 13 hours of it is going to be hell. Dx

A couple of months from now I'm going back to Japan. :D I just bought my ticket last night and, ouch, it was expensive, but I think it'll be worth it. (11 hours on an airplane is going to be awful.) It's only for a week because that's really all I can afford, but it's going to be great. I'm going somewhere I've never been, Kyoto, and probably Osaka since they're so close and why not.

Aaaaahhhhhh. I don't think it's really set in yet or I'd be more excited. I can't wait to see all my...
