"Dude what should I see in ________?"
Solid general guides - sights, sample itineraries, pre-travel considerations, etc
/JPG/anon put together an autistic supermap of sights, restaurants, and shopping. Go nuts.

*Info on prostitution*
Please try to refrain from asking questions about prostitution.
Japan's sex industry is almost completely inaccessible to foreigners who do not speak Japanese (don't listen to this, this was likely written by a weeb with zero real life experience in the field). What is available can generally be found in the following links
Note that most of these companies are owned by the same group so behave.

*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¥ (approximately a Tokyo-Kyoto round-trip bullet train trip)
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥

Super-easy rail pass calculator. Fill in your planned trips, get a quick yes/no response.

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

Refer to the previous thread while it's still up: >>1488829

Is it normal to feel really unsafe when you’re in Eastern Europe?

No.1493709 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Just got back from a trip to Europe and completely against my expectations, I felt the least safe in Hungary and the Czech Republic. The niggers I saw around Germany were annoying and they kept to themselves but man Prague is another story. I was out at about 11pm and there were these roving packs of thuggish slavic dudes walking around escorting these scantily clad women that looked like prostitutes. Every single night when I was walking around I got asked if I wanted to buy drugs and some sellers were VERY aggressive.

No shit guys,
when you move/travel to a new place you've never been to or know no one in, where is the best place to go to meet young people capable of conversations, further acquaintance, etc?

I've had the dream of hiking the Caucasus from Baku to Sochi for a while now. I'm very interested in the nature aspect but I'm also curious regarding the autonomous regions of South Ossetia, Dagestan, Abkhazia and Chechnya.

Has anyone visited or hiked in these areas? What are the chances of running into trouble while hiking or visiting the towns, Grozny eg?

Differences/similarities between Korea and Japan?

alright /trv/ let's settle it once and for all.

what are the major differences and/or similarities between these two countries.

I'm talking more cultural, not in terms of geography cause you can't argue that there's a greater variety of interesting places to visit in japan.

>social life
>work culture
>old people

whatever it is share your experiences

If you could travel back in time, what advice would you give your younger /trv/ self?

For me, I would tell myself not to be bothered by eating alone in restaurants.

Certainly in my early days of travel I must have eaten fast food or back in my room so many times because I was embarrassed to eat alone.

Now I realize that 99% of the time no one cares, and maybe 10% of the time you'll actually meet somebody and have a great conversation or hang out with them.

>Brein says all travelers fit along a continuum. The first stage is the tourist, in which people are passive consumers, superficially involved with the cultures they’re visiting.

>“Over time, as you learn more about the benefits of travel and how to benefit from travel, you morph into the traveler,” he says. “The traveler begins to realize the things that were most beneficial, exciting, and rewarding … are probably the people connections that they’ve made.”

>The third and final stage of the continuum, he says, is the adventurer, the person who boldly steps into new experiences and situations.


Do you agree?
