New Japan General

As always, feel free to ask about:
>Traveling to Japan
>Living in Japan
>Teaching in Japan
>Joining the Yakuza
>Getting your weeb fantasies crushed

*Info on prostitution*

*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.

Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥

Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

Please refer to the old thread while it's still up: >>1238188

Vietnam shower packets

How am I supposed to open Vietnam soap packets for the shower?

When I travel only with carry on, which means I don't pack scissors. Every hotel I've stayed in so far has them.

South East Asia Thread. Couldn't believe that there isn't one, as until now I always saw one but didn't post. So let's start a new one.

The entry topic will be
>I'm currently in Chiang Mai and would like to go trekking tomorrow or the day after
I have some experience, so I'd like to do it on my own, preferably for multiple days. I have all the equipment needed, but need a way to get there. So some relevant questions would be:
1. Which part of the surrounding regions is the most beautiful for trekking? I heard
2. Is the region well marked/signposted?
3. Are there guesthouses on the way for solo hikers?
4. How do I get there cheaply? Are there operators that just drop you off and pick you up in the end? If so, will I be able to leave my stuff with them?

Some useful replies would be great, but feel free to contribute your own questions.

What's the worst "culture shock" you ever experienced? Have you ever gotten it when you returned home due to being abroad for too long?

I've been reading a lot on Cambodia lately. Already bought the plane tickets and I'm going so there's no question in that.
However, I've been getting lots of controversial information on these topics:

>Malaria, should I get anti-malaria pills?

>do I need to get any other shots besides hepatitis A?

>A good way to get from Bangkok to Siam Reap, seen train and bus listed, but lots of different opinions on this

>Is "Happy pizza" not looked upon as illegal by the local authorities, is it safe?

>What's the best way to get around between different cities?

I also would be very thankful on anything I was too dumb to list here. Thanks in advance!

How much do you pack when you want to travel long term?

For example, three or four months in India and Southeast Asia.

I want to pack light, but I also don't want to visit a laundromat three times a week. Or keep finding new laundromats, for that matter. How do you find that balance?

How can I run away to Japan?

No.1237083 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Basically I want to become a hobo in Japan. I'm sick of my home country, all the people around, the society, the entertainment here, the politics, the weather, the scenery, IM SICK OF EVERYTHING!!! I just wanna run away so bad but I don't have too much money at the moment. Someone tell me how much money I'll need to start my hobo journey. Im fine with sleeping manga cafes, capsule hotels, a box, just anything where I can have a place to lie down and some sort of roof on top.

And dont talk to me anything about getting more educated. Ive done high school but Im sick of education and Im not gonna study 1 day more. I can talk a little bit of japanese.

PS: If ur here to tell me how stupid my idea is then go ahead but Im not gonna change my mind
