Just got back from Japan and managed to drop by Kyoani on the way to Kyoto.
This studiofront is the most well known but it's only one of their buildings. We loitered around the front and I managed to catch a glimpse of a bunch of middle aged guys getting ready to sit down at a table.
>Leaving their umbrellas at the front door.
Who does this?
Everyone? People even leave them at the front of supermarkets in my town, occasionally leaving them behind.
Did you put a brick through their window for ruining the industry?
It's japan. Noones steals shit there.
People also leave their accompanied luggage on the platform on the trainstation when they go to the restrooms.
People even leave their belongings like a laptop and everything on the table at a Starbucks. I love it.
A lady actually escorted us away from the building and handed us a small paper map saying that their store was elsewhere.
The neighborhood is actually very underwhelming. Just an average Japanese small town, we were probably the only foreigners for miles.
Wow, that fantastic I guess.
>escorted us away from the building
What the fuck? Did she force you away from the building?
Hard to imagine this working out.
Hell, I'm British and outside my flat is a small vestibule, without a door but, obviously covered by a roof. I'll often leave my shoes and unbrella out there if they're wet.
I think the willingness to do this is linked with crime rates, honestly.
This is true. No one steals shit in Japan, I was surprised to see bikes just parked randomly on rails that weren't locked. Coming from California that's just fucking heresy.
This building seemed to be the real deal: the store and three floors above it reserved for Kyoani from which we were barred from entering.
I don't live in Japan but over here people leave their wallets and bags on tables to reserve it which really pisses me off
>Going to the Kyoto Animation office
>Not taking selfies at all the kyoto locations that are used as backgrounds in their anime
I see you've been to the gates of Heaven.
How far away was the shop from the office here ?>>101944126
My family leaves shit outside all the time, but since we have around 800 feet of driveway through a wooded area that deters a great deal of would be criminals.
Then why did she tell you about the store that you can't go to.
>Leaving your wallet of all things on the table
What the fuck
Why? Theft is so low it basically doesn't exist, that's how it works.
don't leave me hanging. did the middle aged guys ever sit down?
No, it was my fault for loitering a little close to the door. I knew we were going get told to go to the store down the street but I wanted to see how much I could peek into the studio before I got in trouble. Figured why the hell not, I'll probably never show my face there again.
It's a 5 minute walk, conveniently past a 7-11 if you need cash to withdraw to blow at the store. Here is the storefront.
Normal people have a place inside for them.
that studio is incredibly small. Their animations are pretty good tho
Did you tell them that Oreki is your favourite?
Did you strip naked, handcuff yourself to something heavy and demand that they let you see you waifu?
I wasn't aware of that due to me being American.
We aren't japanese either
>live in California
>people think it's crazy that I don't lock my door
Just don't live in a nigger town and get to know your neighbors.
I would've done this but I only had 5 days in Japan. I'm on an exchange program in Asia and I had this week off. You can probably guess where I'm studying from that.
I think this is true too. No one there is afraid of having their shit stolen.
I managed to sneak one photo while I was in there. It's not very big and I felt bad for the shopworker who probably has to listen to the KyoAni OPs playing over the radio 8 hours a day.
Yeah I don't even own shit because I'm worried it will get stolen. I drive a shitty beat up truck for the same reason.
British guy here. I don't lock my door either.
Most expensive thing I own is my dog though, and Mastiff's are self guarding.
No fucking way, where I'm at people have to take the front wheels of their bikes everywhere they go so that they don't get stolen.
Any KNK material?
What about the ED's?
There are OPs and EDs than the KyoAni ones.
That's a load of Free! merch. Looks like they're began selling that new LN of theirs too.
Someone didn't watch that episode of SamFlam.
It rains in America. Even here in California, we finally had a storm and now the weather looks like winter. If we're lucky there might even be more, although it's too late for us to not be screwed.
>I felt bad for the shopworker who probably has to listen to the KyoAni OPs playing over the radio 8 hours a day.
>Listening to Lucky Star's OP over and over again
>people don't steal in Japan
They are human beings you racist, not dispassionate robots.
Only in theory.
Clearly you've never met a Japanese person
>Crime is what distinguishes humans from robots.
Are you an American?
The whole leaving umbrellas outside isn't just a Japanese thing, I saw it a lot in Switzerland
Plenty of KnK material.
They were playing the Free! OP when I walked in.
why would you steal when you live in anime?
>blindly following laws should be a point of national pride
>going to KyoAni
>not putting a brick through the window
I'll give you another shot. You can think of something better than that.
Asians are people (well, kind of... it's not natural to be that good at maths).
It's the blacks who you need to watch when it comes to crime and japan has very few of them.
I like how the place is smaller than my room and empty as fuck.
Less children basically means less theft. America prefers immigration on top of breeding entitlement.
Not that you had any point beyond screaming racist to feel good.
What's blindly about it?
put a brick with the studio deen logo on it.
>You can probably guess where I'm studying from that.
When I went to Japan on a school trip we visited a middle school and all the kids asked if we knew movie stars or were related to movie stars, shit was cute
More surroundings of Kyoani studio, seriously it was in the middle of bumfuck nowhere
Apparently half their animators are just local housewives
the ara-ara type?
... why wasn't I born in japan?
>it was in the middle of bumfuck nowhere
No wonder they have to be self-sufficient, they can't easily outsource or rely on freelancers.
Try to put a brick with a Gainax logo on it through the window.
It bounces off the glass and lands on your foot.
That town is home to a lot of people and headquarters to Kyoani.
That fucking town is empty.
Station if you guys ever decide to go.
I can believe that. The woman who showed pointed us to the store looked like one.
I would love to live in a town like that
I SPY DEM GOLDEN ARCHES
FREE SMILES YO
Is that a McDonald's sign in the distance?
Where are the people in your shots, OP. Are you purposely taking pictures when no one is around, or do all the locals try to avoid the waito-piggu in fear of contracting your extra dimension
You know what, I have never seen a Japanese Down Syndrome person. Must drown them all at birth.
>making jobs for the local people
KyoAni are heroes of capitalism.
Sir, that has got to be the most correct statement I've ever heard. Kohata ain't got jack-all besides the studio and store
The store clerks do anything different for you since you're all foreign and shit?
>roommate's Mistubishi Gallant breaks down on highway in Japan
>parks it off the road in field
>come back next day and engine, doors, hood, seats, wheels and transmission are all missing
Japs know how to strip cars very efficiently.
>a posh citroen
>in bumblefuck japan
Colour me surprised
That is a terrible image to make a point.
Every place on Earth has extraordinarily ugly individuals, but that does not mean they represent any one group as a whole.
I love a good ol' classic cherrypick
Was she hot?
Did you go to Book-Off or Kinokuniya? Those are wonderful shops.
I doubt he'd know if they were avoiding him. But if it's the middle of the day, they're probably busy at work.
I agree. I'm from California too; One time I used a scooter to drive myself to a store so I could pick up an item, and I hid my scooter between two soda machines. Even then, I dashed in to get the item and dashed out in case anyone wanted to steal my scooter.
Pretty sure a Citroen hatchback isn't a posh car.
It's a DS4
It's as close to posh as Citroens get, mate
>thinking that's a big deal
You might be poor.
They clutched their wallet/purse closer and prepared for imminent biggu dicku.
Yea seriously. Despite the fact that I'd be ostracized for being a Canadian gaijin. it would be awesome to live alone there.
Probably a nigger.
Do you live in deepest, darkest Africa?
Yes, but it's still a Citroen.
There's some Japanese suburbs I'd love to live in as well, this one's a little too dead for me though.
There was almost no one around the train station at that time. Everyone had gotten off the train and gone their ways while we stayed behind to be a bunch of weebs.
Actually not at all, it was almost uncomfortable at first. Even if they were completely aware of the fact that we didn't speak Japanese, they would speak Japanese anyway. I'm guessing you've been there as well?
I also needed to take a massive shit once I got there, but then I walked into the stall and saw this abomination.
>tfw from California
>don't lock my house doors, only lock car doors if I don't know the neighborhood
>often leave things around (mostly just forgetful) and come back to it hours later sitting neatly by where I left it
>see posts like these
Is this like a SoCal problem or something?
Yeah, California is a big place. My grandma's neighborhood is like that. No worries leaving things unlocked. But where I live in LA, I'm worried about being mugged every time I leave my house.
I also live in California... hell, LA of all places, and I've never lost anything to theft (except for my dignity), so I don't know what the hell you guys are all hyped-up about. You must live in either Compton, City of Industry, Lancaster, Culver City, Beverly Hills, Monterery Park, Alhambra, Arcadia, Pasadena, San Diego, La Jolla, Ventura, Oxnard, Santa Barbara, Monterery, San Jose, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Fremont, San Bruno, Oakland, Richmond, Berkeley, San Francisco, Pittsburg, or that shit-hole above the golden gate.
Never liked those.
Why are japanese baths so small?
>not squatting to poop
You need some lessons in bathroom etiquette, sir.
I will reach the promised land one of these days
Might as well just shit on the floor.
Did your legs fall asleep while you attempted to use those toilets? Did any local person ww at you baka-gaijin taking pictures of toilets?
Wait a second. They don't have normal toilets on public bathrooms?
Foreign makes are pretty expensive in Japan. A Ford Focus there costs around the same as a decently equipped BMW 3er in the EU.
DS4s are posh for Citroens. That doesn't mean it's a proper posh car.
They're worlds better than any Americunt car, that's for sure.
So like, what if you happen to, uh, and keep in mind here that this is hypothetical, what if you happen to miss? Then what?
I'd be glad to live in some of the places you listed. I live in South Central. Poor as fuck yo.
>not wanting to be comfortable while you squeeze out a Grunter.
Shit, Son. I have a specific "pooping" tablet PC that I only use in the bathroom, so I can watch cartoons while curling out stinkers.
It's so you can conveniently top off your child's christening levels if they're getting dangerously low.
It looks like the inside of a spaceship
Push it into the bowl with your shoes
>better than any Americunt car
I'll agree with you there.
I'd rather take a bus, ride a bike or get ferociously buggered up the arse by fifty niggers than drive a Yank Tank.
Some do some don't.
You're basically playing dice when you enter one.
I think it depends on the race you're around. White people will almost invariably steal your shit if they think they'll get away with it. Niggers will steal your shit if they want it or think they can sell it. Mexicans are good neighbors.
Twice, actually. I was in high school the first time I went, and the store clerks actually pulled out a little phrase book to communicate with us. They even gave me and my buddy a mini-cel for free. Shit was cash.
The second time was last year, 3rd year of university. It was actually kind of crowded that day for whatever reason, so all I got was a "what country are you from?" By this point I knew enough moon to get through it, but I ended up just buying some stuff and leaving. It's good merch, though. They sell some high-quality goods in there.
I've spent a lifetime total of almost a year over there and never once had to use one of those things. Lucky me, I guess.
That's the Citroen, and you thought I was joking when I said "posh Citroen". Better than any Cadillac or whatever Americans call "posh"
Is that because you are butthurt over America, or are they just really shitty cars? I've never driven one.
Nope, they're almost as backward as the French.
You clean after yourself, obviously. It's common courtesy.
I mean, how would you like if someone left a bad doodoo just steaming there? How would you like to know you made the life of a lowly janitor trying to get by, a little bit worse?
If you squat properly, you'll never miss though.
They do in more populated ones. But for the less frequently used bathrooms it's just one of these. I can barely manage to squeeze out a nugget over one of these.
Hasn't happened yet. I guess I'll answer Japan questions while posting pictures of random things I saw.
Pretend it never happened.
Probably just me being paranoid, since people have the decency to intentionally scratch people's cars because it's better than theirs. Seriously, when you see that, I think I would assume the other bad shit comes into hand.
I do live in SoCal.
Both Citroens and America a shit.
We don't call anything posh.
>Mexicans are good neighbors.
You don't live in my neighborhood. Fucking parties every weekend. Stole 4 bikes from my backyard that I caught them selling a few blocks away. Fuck that.
On the other hand, the fancy Japanese toilets have heated seats and also hygienic features (they clean up for you).
American's make the second best wide production cars on the planet.
For the time being, Nippon is still close.
Not that it matters when the industry is so hopelessly inbred at this point. What isn't outright owned by one conglomerate has 30ish% of their stake held by them.
based japanese toilets
wait, wait, wait, wait... according to the diagram, the water flush is coming from the head of the squat toilet... however, you're shitting at the back end of the toilet where, presumably, the flush-water will never reach (since there is a hole)...
So what's the deal? You just shit on someone else's shit and your flushes do nothing?
Those are some STALKER tier steps
You know what we do well in america? Pony cars and trucks. Everything else a shit. All we do is design the shit anyway.
Those toilets are only in fancy motels though. And they have them fancy motels all over the world. Manga writers fell in love with them, now they are ubiquitous in anime and manga.
OP anymore pictures? I'm thinking of going on exchange at some point during uni.
This is an interior of an American car (actually Italian, but whatever) of the same size. Compare >>101945819
Just look at that sea of dull grey!
That's fucking awesome. Why aren't these everywhere?
I used these when I went to China. I actually found it more comfortable. Sometimes I sit on a western toilet like L does just for shits.
>Fucking parties every weekend.
Oh, they are loud. Neighbors have a dog that barks a lot, sometimes early in the morning and sometimes for hours on end, and they just let it bark. Never had any trouble with them stealing anything, but if you're in the south then you're probably dealing with scraps, the ones up here mostly just want to work and support their families.
I can confirm this. The ass spray is uncomfortable at first but once you get used to it it's great for easing your asshole and preventing ringsting after a spell of diarrhea, which I managed to catch in Japan. This awful maid cafe food didn't help either.
So are these weird ones more common than the toilets we're used to?
I guess that's why the world hates the fiesta and focus, oh wait.
Murrica has long since recovered number 2.
The more globalized/developed areas have regular toilets.
Oh yes, the fucking endless dog barking. They even had a rooster a few years ago that would wake me up every morning.
Fuck that shit never again. $35 for microwaved curry rice in a dimly lit room with an unattractive maid and the lingering smell of cigarette smoke. I don't get the appeal.
Because when you live in a country where everyone knows how to act like a decent human you don't have to worry about your stuff being stolen.
I remember walking down the streets and seeing bikes without locks on them which baffled my mind cause in America that bike would be stole within an hour.
"Posh" means expensive, right? Cadillacs are flashy nigger cars. A decent car for middle class folks that want a fairly nice one is the Ford Mustang, but if people really want to pay for luxury they usually buy Italian cars.
An idiot visits Japan.
Do it. I'm glad I did but I regret not going to Japan. My program requires a summer intensive language program and a language course each semester, AND it had to be for a whole year. I would've had to give up my summer internship that year and I'm not sure if my parents would help pay for that kind of program either. But anyway, do it or you'll regret it.
Here's a Japanese suburb.
What the hell, that's 3 kilos of rice and a few whole chickens, enough to make your own curry rice.
It's so clean.
>the fiesta and focus
Those are the two American cars I like.
The first pic has completely different lighting, though. It'd probably look a lot less dull in the same lightning conditions as the first pic.
I've been living in the States for a while now and I've been in one with the smallish headlights. What a dreadful interior. Same with the road noise and everything else about it just felt low rent.
>eating at a maid cafe
Pick two. Middle class is all about affordable Camry's and minivans. I don't know what kind of middle class you're talking about.
>Cadillacs are flashy nigger cars.
Yeah no. Niggers can't drive the manual 6 speed supercharged 550 hp CTSV. They like the Escalade and DeVille a lot though.
Different guy. I dug out my old Japan photos from one of my trips years ago. I really like this one; it's from the amusement park near Mt. Fuji. Translation:
FUJI-Q is a habitat for bears. Even if you find one, you absolutely must not pro-wrestle with it. Do not tackle it either.
How was the weather? When exactly were you there?
Should check out the newest mustang / camero / challenger.
Pony cars were designed for the middle class. A loaded GT is around $32,000. When you step up to the customs they get to about 55K
>recommending a Mustang
The only reason to buy one of those is for the looks. Or if you like muscle cars. It handles like shit and the fuel economy is shit, especially for its price.
Haha oh wow. You literally don't know anything do you. If you want luxury, you buy German. If you want reliability, you buy German. If you want performance, you buy German. If you want something incredibly overpriced, you buy German.
So what I'm saying is that you should buy a Ford Focus.
>Mexicans are good neighbors
I can almost see your 7 cousins trying to fit into one car
Shitty man, at least you got to spend time there right? I'll probably end up going, sounds fun as fuck.
its so clean
That clean smooth road.
I want to drive on it so bad.
Is that a curry? It looks like 2 sausages in a sea of gravy with a drowning rice panda.
How is crime in Japan, in the sense of personal safety?
As in, can you walk around after dark in the city? Because you sure as fuck can't in the city I live in. Not even the "good parts".
Blame Ford, or give credit to, Ford UK for those 2 cars.
holy fuck. the streets and walkways look so clean.
Why is there rust everywhere? Japan looks nasty.
Damn I'm nostalgiaing so hard. Kyoto was so great, the people were amazingly friendly and the roads were actually navigable unlike Tokyo.
Missed a line. I am dumb. The second sentence is "bears can be found anywhere"
Yours had cigarette smoke? That sucks man. Sounds like our food was of the same caliber though, I don't think I'll be going back again either. Just a one time deal for the Akihabara experience.
>Please remember the toilet room
Oh Japan, how can I forget?
Fuck, now I want to go watch the episode again.
Fuck, that looks so nice and fun. Would love to go out for midnight conveni-sto run.
>not trolling spineless pussies
Man they get so subservient. No eye contact. Pretending not to hear you. It just makes me want to tease them more~
The building looks just like it does in my Chinese cartoon
Aren't the bears in Japan pretty small though?
>fiesta and focus
But they're from Europe. We've had those for over a decade. You just got the hand-me-downs. I also been in the US version and they feel cheaper than the ones back home.
I've just checked the price of the DS4 in dollars: they cost from $30k to $41k. I could buy a Caddy for that much
I really want to know how the weather is this time around.
I've never understood the rule of no phone calls on a train.
He mentions quiet and peacefulness but you're on a fucking train, someone talking is fucking nothing compared to the metal clanking and screeching the whole way down.
>yuropoors surprised that some people's towns aren't filthy
Welcome to real life.
I'm sure it evolved because most people commute by train. Its the way they unwind after work.
How is the booth food like that?
When I was a kid and saw those little ramen shacks on Naruto, I would always think about having a really good ramen from a booth when I was older. So please /a/non, have you seen and/or tried a take out ramen booth, or fast food booth in general?
Usually sunny and dry from like December till Cherry Blossom season.
Average 1-10 Celcius.
I can only assume that you use kiddie speak for poo when you say number two. In that case, your are right, Murrican cars are indeed shit.
Thing Euros need to understand about the US is that compared to you guys we have no consumer protection laws. So we can get sold shit products with little legal risks from the business.
I'm moving to Taipei in November, with any luck I'll be able to take a trip to Japan at some point too
I'd also love to go to South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia but they aren't /a/
I get the train thing just cause dumbass jabbering on top of already annoying noises is even more annoying but the guy going on about backpacks of backpackers being a fashion faux pax is fucking ridiculous.
>you can't have a backpack on a backpacking train trip
This fucking cunt.
>mfw this thread is making me feel nostalgic over the time was there in Japan
That doesn't explain shit.
If you can ignore screeching and clanking why can't you ignore some fag on the phone, that dude wasn't even speaking Japanese so they don't even need to resist eavesdropping.
America and Canada aren't exactly paragons of urban cleanliness either
this scenery is beautiful.
1 - 10 degrees celsius? holy christ thats warm.
>ftw never went to Japan
When we got there, the weather was pretty mild. However, right when we left on the 5th a huge storm just hit Japan and it was snowing like crazy in Tokyo and Kyoto. It was all over Asian news in the region. By the time I got to Kyoto it was already lightly snowing.
This booth in particular was great. I got two sticks of yakitori every night I came back from the city since this stand was on the way between the nearest subway station and my inn. The woman working there was really nice and worked with me even though I could barely speak Japanese. The vibe there was just really nice and I miss it.
Here drummers from a nearby shrine walk around the neighborhood to ward off evil spirits.
Here's a mindfuck
The current gen fiesta is actually based off the mazda 2. The mazda 2 is designed by mazda entirely. So hating the fiesta is hating the 2 which is hating Japan
>all that Free shit
As expected of the company's cash cow.
It's not a matter of decibels, but probably similar to not speaking on the phone at a dinner table. It's considerate to keep private conversations private.
Have you never taken a long train trip? I could tell so many stories of cunts in american, the click clack of wheels is a nice noise, it isn't bitching to their friends about how she bought the wrong brand of milk
>watching weebs try to into cars
Nice try; please don't; we don't need any more fresh weebs with licenses swarming /o/ asking how to drift their initial d inspired 86s.
>Here drummers from a nearby shrine walk around the neighborhood to ward off evil spirits.
Wish we had those over here. All we have at night are drunk Russians stumbling around the neighborhood to ward off high land values
In Florida it's 18 and that's considered cool. In the day it was 27.
man FUCK japan
My neighbor has two roosters. The fuckers make noise all day. I've never had a problem with any Mexicans stealing my shit, though. The white trash are the thieves in this neighborhood; asshole jumped our fence and stole a weedwacker.
But that's wrong. Here's a mindfuck for you:
Only three parts on the Mazada 2 and Fiesta are identical.
>Be comfortable with my Japanese level.
>tfw no money to go to Japan.
The only reason why the fiesta does well state side is due to marketing. Mazda had very little marketing for the 2 as the 3 is their cash cow. In the rest of the world, both the fiesta and the 2/demio are equally strong competitors
The dude was talking OVER the screeching and clanking though. On a cell phone. That was right next to his mouth. And I don't know if you've ever had the misfortune of being forced to listen to full conversations in a language you don't understand, but its a much more obnoxious noise than train tracks.
No it's not, that's almost-snowing.

>tfw when really want to do an exchange to japan for a semester but you fucked up your class planning and can't, unless you do an extra semester
>That feel over there
Well, I have to leave in a bit. Thanks for having me and here's a picture of a sad maid trying to advertise her cafe in Akiba while it was raining.
So do an extra semester ya dingus
Well I live in Canada and I'm in my shorts and T-shirt when it's +5
At least she has an umbrella
Do an extra semester, it's fucking worth it.
>putting a maid outside in the rain
Those Japanese should are more considerate than us westerners.
Next time you see her, tell her that the food quality is shit and they need to hire cuter girls
NO need to rush that degree. You'll still be unemployed after you get it. Take your time and enjoy life.
Then name them.
If you were to strip away the aesthetics, you'd find the chassis as being the same.
How do I live in japan without a degree?
>mfw my friend took me to a retro arcade station in Akiba
>NO need to rush that degree. You'll still be unemployed after you get it. Take your time and enjoy life.
That's not how life works.
Just move there.
If he's gonna rack up debt anyway, might as well do it after the schooling so he can maybe get a menial job in Japan.
Why don't you have a degree?
Ask Dave Coleman to specify them.
So, I'd like to go to Japan when it's cold, but not snowy or busy (like Sakura season) I know lots of theme parks (Which I'd like to visit) close when there's heavy snow.
I'm going for 21 days
>today i want to insult europeans. any retarded argument will do xdddd xDD
I was in Tokyo for three years. And in those three years I didn't go to Comiket, I regret this feeling to this day.
Oh man, I collect retro consoles and games, I'd love it if we had places like that in the UK.
I could never move to Japan, or anywhere else though. I'm British through and through, I'd miss blighty way too much.
It's supposed to be.
You must be one fat fuck of blubber to not get hypothermia. But I'm guessing you don't go outside long enough to get that
Hey it looks like he's learning from the best
How do I do it with a degree?
Wait a second, it's probably not worth 70 hour work weeks or making 20k as an English teacher.
>getting a degree because that's what you're supposed to do
I _seriously_ hope you guys don't do this.
But I'll have to leave in like 3 months
Waste of money and I hate school. Anything I'd want to learn I could teach my self.
Fuck you, I am saving for an 86, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
I'm not going to drift it, just make give it the panda color and take it to meets for the shits.
Nigga you dumb as fuk
If I'm on the train in Japan and I wanted to cover a sleeping businessman in whipped cream, how long will it take for the cops to show up and politely tell me to cut that shit out? Over here, it'll take one second to have my ass beaten by the law because the businessman is actually an undercover freedom cop
That reminds me of my mom's car getting keyed like three different times while she was teaching at an elementary school. Granted it was in Vallejo but still.
I did. I went to fucking jr college for like 5 years on the gi bill. I'm still milking that shit now. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have gone.
Yeah I know.
>JET interview in a week
I'm gonna fuck it up, I just know it
Oh to be this young and naive again.
At 20 grand per semester for tuition and other costs... I just can't...
Ah well, I pay to go to a top engineering program, so with some luck maybe I'll be able to make a trip some time in the future...
Except it won't be the same, since I'll be old.
Well, I won't go into my personal life but I'm a student and in terms of fitness, you'd never believe me anyway.
Tell them about you're waifu.
This doesn't apply to the state as a whole.
Greetings, my fellow Solano-bro.
College was the best time of my life.
Why do you hate school? Study something you're interested. Use office hours to talk to people with PhDs researching cutting edge stuff. Join clubs to find people with similar interests.
There's that word again
>Visiting a shrine
>It was in the middle of march and it started snowing all of a sudden
The snow stopped very soon after, but it sure made the scenery beautiful for a brief moment.
If it's just coming off the winter season and you live anywhere that's cold, 40 degrees Fahrenheit is literally like summer to you, no matter how skinny you are.
They say your blood thickens in cold climates.
>japanese maid out in the room
But what if she catches a cold!
Popular English teaching employment company.
If you don't get it just apply to a bunch of other companies
As I said, you'll still be unemployed. Go.
I'm still going to college after 13 year in the USAF. I fucking love college and they love me taking classes. I'm fully qualified for almost a quarter of the high requirement jobs on base right now.
Gotta make myself as useful as possible if I want to hit the 20 year mark.
Fuck people who come into the military for only four years and come out saying it was just a desk job though. Those sub-humans are almost always Navy fuckers. Why is the Navy allowed to be so damn unprofessional?
We have nice expensive cars here too, you know. Our ministers waste our money on them all the time.
Did you fly stuff?
>best time of my life
>Leaving japan right before their national foundation day
That's 美しい as fuck.
>mfw JET interview next week
>mfw my email address was pomfersgonnapomf
You try living on a boat for months on end and see if you want to re-enlist
Yeah, cool huh?
no they don't you ignorant fuck, japanese ones have 4 sides, chinese ones have 8 sides.
I've flown a few shipments but jet pilots are special forces and require 20/20 vision and a fuckton of other requirements. You have to be a peak human being to fly a jet.
you can be a hunchbacked speckled fuck missing one eye and still fly a shipment though.
Would they hire a foreigner if he or she was skilled enough.
I hope you fail horribly so I get your spot
Florida is always warm though. Anything around/below 16C during the day and people will break out the large jackets and hats.
Thank you fellow navyfag. Meanwhile my Chair force friend homesteads at Nellis and parties like a rockstar every day. On occasion, he deploys for 4 months wooooo long fucking time.
They'll hire you if you work for almost nothing and can do basic shit
>Not having a professional email
You deserve to fail.
who knows they might want some western perceptive on some shows they have, but some companies hire white English fluent people just for the sole reason of them being white and it makes their company look good
It's not just the frequent in-an-outs but they also act unprofessional as hell too. They have the highest rate of suicide and rape, they waste almost as much money as the Army but at least the Army has a justification because it's a senator patsy to bring in more jobs and cash, and they act more like the stereotypical jarhead than Marines do.
You a famous nigger?
>Teaching English in japan
>Not doing some proper job in japan while knowing both languages
The train clanking and screeching are background noises. Notice how the sound of your PC fan, or the AC fades into the background after some time, and then you only notice that the noise is still there when it's pointed out to you or you notice that's the noise is gone when there's a power failure and it's eerily silent? Same shit with the train noises. It fades into the background (then comes back to your consciousness when the train stops or hits bumps or curves).
However, the sound of conversation and the ringing of cellphones are not background noises (unless if there's a lot of people speaking and using their phones and every sound becomes a blur). They're constantly new sounds that break the repetitive sound pattern of the train noises and your brain will get drawn to that new noise and you'll take notice of it... Especially if it's the sound of people talking. Some people find this "noisy" and annoying.
I'm not Navy I'm not even an Eagleman
A few of my former schoolmates did tours in the navy and they all came away with bad experiences. Mostly about the sicknesses and whatnot, but also about buggery
I got away with my high school email on both of my interviews. So did the subordinates that were hired after me.
HR didn't care and the department director just laughed. I can see how it would go wrong in hindsight though.
What is there even to do as a foreigner? I'd imagine there are a few American/European companies that do business but I'd also guess that they want fluent people to know both languages in order to be able to assist both sides of the company.
I have a professional email now, it's just I wrote my normal email out of habit. I wonder if they'll ask me about it.
But to get a work Visa you need to show that you have a skill that Japanese people do not have.
In other words, doesn't matter if you're a fucking top tier animator, if you aren't better than everyone in Japan, you probably won't get a Visa unless KyoAni is desperate enough to vouch for you.
You can likely do this if KyoAni is looking for western perspective, or even english voice actors occasionally.
But usually they cheap out and just get someone in the office who can speak english for any side characters.
WHOA, that's insanely cool, now I feel like a fucking hick for having to use my imagination.
Oh I guess it was in china
If you're talking about anime, they do a lot of board anime and probably already have a western perspective of some sort
One of my friends from highschool ended up going and teaching in Japan. Two years ago he got married to an ex-student, moved into his wife's family's register and became a Japanese citizen.
you could just work as an engineer somewhere. or as a physicist. or sell weed. apparently it goes for a lot of money there
Having a waiter that knows perfect english would probably be useful in tourist-dense areas
I'd go to Japan and get a job as a baka ganjin or yakuza janitor. A very dangerous janitor.
going to become an international businessman after JET is done with. I only signed up because I really don't want to get a real career yet and I've been in Japan almost all of last year anyway so I knew they'd accept me. Although I'm thinking of just going full NEET since my parents plan to give me more money than I can ever plan to use.
well i can also compose. would that be a bonus?
What's wrong with French toilets?
>5 years jail if possession of weed in japan(Personal)
God knows what happens if you're selling it, would get put in the trash for life.
>and became a Japanese citizen
How? Is he dying of cancer or something?
If you're better than every composer in Japan, maybe.
At this point you're trying to be an all-around guy.
You aren't getting in that way unless you have connections.
there was an anon on this board that got a music deal with Yoko Kanno last year. She was looking for Americans who could do orchestral music or soemthing. He actually didn't speak any Japanese besides anime.
But then you might as well just work in a western country since you'd be paying more for living expenses in Japan and probably working much longer hours. It's a fun place to visit but working a traditional white collar job there sounds like shit.
I don't know much about it but from what I've heard, most companies who hire dem English teachers require you to have a degree. Doesn't matter what, as long as you have one. Someone I knew only had an Associate's degree and got hired so...
It sells for a lot because Japanese jail is fucking horrifying.
Not the toilets so much as the plumbing.
Both Japan and France have fucking horrible plumbing.
I remember thaaaaaaat. The singer guy, right?
Japan doesn't even have central A/C or heating in their houses
he sung and played violin yeah.
Do think I could get in as an English teacher but not do my job?
I just want to be like kintaro and travel across japan on a bike.
i thought about that, but there aren't that many animation studios here that still do traditional animation, let alone in 'that' style.
do you need more than 3 months to travel around Japan on a bike? Cause you don't need a job or a VISA to do that.
I would assume so since Japanese families share bathwater and there are public baths which usually only exist in backwater muslim countries.
If you are going to SEA, you are better off going for scenic tours. The cities are shit. Jakarta might be nice and growing really fast but traffic jam is total clusterfuck of epic proportion.
How likely is it I could get a job with the studio that does Kiniro Mosaic? I could point out everything wrong about England they get and help them fix it also scenery scouting if they ever decide to draw scenes in England again.
Japanese laws are vaguely written so the police can throw charges at whoever they deem suspicious. They can keep you in holding for up to 23 days without charge, and are basically free to interrogate you 12 hours a day until you break and sign a confession. The system is seriously fucked up.
Why does it look like it was made in the 90s and never been redesigned ever since?
japan as no.1
Looks like you haven't been in enough supermarkets. I've seen dozens in my half year here.
I don't want it to feel like I'm on a time trial though. I want to take my time and enjoy the scenery.
The Fiesta and Focus were designed and engineered in Germany you stupid fat cunt.
welp fuck that noise i ain't going to japan.
I swear most Asian sites looks like that.
>Implying the yakuza would allow a dirty gaijin like you live in japan
you could just not sell weed anon
Why are you getting so angry?
it's not the weed it's anything. imagine they see me, an upstanding gaijin doing anything outside their culture norms. instant kaiji enactment.
Actually I lived in Napa and she just commuted. Now I'm in college in Oregon anyway.
>not overstaying your passport
Do you even illegal immigrate?
that's when you pull out your JUSTICE suit and take out the entire JDF by yourself.
You could steal one of those umbrellas any minute.
I doubt it's that bad. Don't always just believe any old thing you read on the internet.
Nah, you'll get the benefit of the doubt so long as you aren't doing anything overtly criminal. Japanese always inwardly assume touristy foreign folk are retards, so you'd only end up looking like a moron.
Between this and Uchouten Kazoku it makes me want to live in Kyoto.
Well Napa pays good money for our water so you guys are alright by me•
Shouldn't be hard. You could wipe out a platoon before they fought back since they won't wipe their ass without two sealed forms from their lieutenant and captain.
I took a class on this, home-slice. The Japanese jailing system was fucking condemned by the UN
But how do you KNOW
>being this new
oh yeah? what if i go there and be the biggest japanese grammar nazi? that'll show them.
where in or?
You don't. You live in constant fear of misunderstandings.
>Dragons Rioting doujin
>being this baited
it's like i'm in 2013
Hell, a naked dude swimming in the imperial fish pond was able to fight off a whole platoon.
My house was condemned by the UN for having a few ladyboys and day laborers in the basement
Your point is?
Just like in my Japanese animes!
that doesn't exist does it?
it's pornography you fucknut
esas putas tienen el mono bien peludo
Yeah but what's the context in the pornography?
I need to get some background here.
THIS WHY WE MUST BAN GUNS! NO GUNS MEANS NO BLACK PEOPLE! NO BLACK PEOPLE WE WILL RECIEVE ENLIGHTENMENT LIKE NIPS AND GETS TO BE HATED BY CHINKS
God, I'd love to be hated by chinks.
That things condemned by the UN are generally not all that great. You sound like you're on top of things, though. Make sure to keep them all alive until you're done with them. If you let one die and the rest give up on life, they stop being useful and you have to get new ones.
we 1993 now
>seriously it was in the middle of bumfuck nowhere
Animators don't get paid enough to afford the rent anywhere else..
Reminds me of this:
German guy gets in a fight, taken to police office.
Escapes the police office 3 stories high, over 3000japanese(Actually serious here: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-11-14/i-fought-some-thugs-in-a-hotel-but-why-am-i-now-chased-by-3000-policemen-anime-series-green-lit) police trying to search for him.
Huge snowstorm? Do you live in South America or something? This shit was weak to world standards, even if it was the biggest in 2 decades.
They don't stay long enough for me to take care of them. Some funny-talking white people come by every so often and takes them away.
Condemning me for "human trafficking", the clots. How do you even "traffick"? I thought you need cars to do that
>I'll never visit glorious Kyoani.
Fuck I'm so jealous.

I like how he asked some driver if he could get to the station and got there. Then at the station, he asked some people for clothes and got those as well.
It's not free though.

Did they... steal your innocence?
I could go with you, if you want.
I can go with you if you don't mind the fact that i have homocidal tendencies.
Do you have a pretty cock?
I am American and I learned about them through Gran Turismo.
Is it safe to walk around at night in Japan?
Whenever I do it here I'm always on edge because I feel like I'm going to get jumped.
It's not, that was the shop they were told to go to.
it's black if that counts
No, you idiot
not free merch
>jet pilots are special forces and require 20/20 vision and a fuckton of other requirements.
Thanks for reminding me.
You have to pay for it.
Then you should include the ! that's part of the official title.
Which shows had the most merch there? K-ON, Free and Chuu2?
Exactly, there's more of a temptation.
can't you get laser eye surgery? in canada you can still receive your wings if you end up with 20/20.
THANK YOU FOR DEFENDING MY FREEDOM ANON HERE IS A PICTURE OF MY WAIFU YOU CAN FAP TO IT BUT NONE OF YOUR FRIENDS OK?
You're lying. Temperatures never reach Celcius in Florida.
I live in Fremont and I have no idea why you have it on that list, it is literally a giant empty parking lot with a lot of old people, there is fucking nothing here except for alot of smelly Indians.
anywhere besides the metropolis area (Tokyo) is fine to walk around in.
When I went to an examination to get my driver's license, the doctor said that my vision was good enough to fly jets.
Too bad I'm not at all interested in that career choice.
Look at the fucking photo, there's nothing BUT Free products in there. That is not necessary and you know it.
They cycle it out based on the most popular franchises. First time I went there many years ago it was mostly Lucky Star and Haruhi; years later is was Chuu2 and some Hyouka.
go to bed grampa
>KyoAni in the middle of nowhere
That was kinda the point. By setting up a studio in bumfuck Kansai, they were able to save a lot of money on overhead costs. Which allowed them to produce better animation for the same cost or cheaper than other studios.
Similar idea to PA Works being way the fuck out in Nanto, Toyama prefecture.
>20 grand per semester
Jesus fucking christ anon, what kind of university do you attend?
But it's not free merch, you have to pay for it.
There is a lot of Free! merch there.
As well as something from KnK on the bottom right.
an American one, I'll bet
ohright, you need a flashlight though to walk around the countryside because there's no lighting. And if you walk around in the summer, you have an excellent chance of being devoured by giant moths attracted to said flashlight.
You can't tell me that small photo captures all of their shop. What about the other aisle?
It's more natural form to shit while squatting than sitting
not the actual Kyoani shop but the shop at the CTFK event.
>there's nothing BUT Free products in there.
Sounds generous of KyoAni. But how do they even make profit if nobody has to pay fot it?
Well at least they bothered to put out a little bit of Nichijou stuff.
The wall across from that has another sheld of stuff maybe half that size, and the walls by the register have a bunch of posters that you can ask for. But that's it. It's a VERY small store.
All you have to do is wait five years or marry.
Oh and you have to denounce all of your other citizenships.
Looks like some nip otaku's garage sale.
cause it's sold out all the time right?
>you have to denounce all of your other citizenships.
Isn't that normal for most countries?
Y.yeah anon, that's wgt
I hope that by the day I finally go there they will still have K-ON posters.
I don't know, but my country doesn't require denouncing your other citizenships. It also allows you to become a citizen in another nation without losing your citizenship. Obviously, the other nation must also not require denouncement.
Most countries allow dual citizenship.
Quite a few allow dual citizenship. I don't know the exact rules behind it, though. Probably it mostly revolves around immigrant families with kids born in the new country.
Just how old is too old to enjoy Japan in an adventurous sense?
You can always just hide your passport, it's not like they give that much of a shit
That would be really strange though. Having say, a US birth cert. and no longer having the right to be in the country.
US and Commonwealth nations have dual citizenship with Japan
They're the only ones I have knowledge of
Really? I've only ever heard that both the US and Japan don't allow it.
just grow a moustache and wear a cowboy hat everywhere. Nothing more awesome than a rugged 40 year old cowboy.
>he doesn't know about shitros
Thank god, I don't want to be stuck in Japan
A backup is always reassuring
Oh well maybe I'm wrong
Don't quote me on it
I was always under the impression the US allowed it with Japan/Sth Korea and a few others
But I'm not american so just ignore me
>US and Commonwealth nations have dual citizenship with Japan
That's not true.
I'm 24. I've wanted to visit Japan since I was 15. My excitement for a youthful adventure decreases every year because I'm getting fucking old.
I have a 2013 Focus.
Its fucking awesome but the stereo was designed by a drunk art student or something. God damn is the interface for the Sync/Stereo fucking awful.
Great car otherwise, I can actually fit my spindly 6'3" ass behind the wheel without looking like I'm driving a go kart, gangsta leaning, or bumping my head on the roof.
as far as i know you can be born into dual citizenship almost anywhere, but if you want to immigrate somewhere you have to give them up.
Kyoani's ads are so nice.
You're not old until you're 35.
There's plenty of time, and as long as you want to do it, you should do it, no matter how old you are.
>Nichijou art style
Ahh fuck, I stand corrected. I'm getting confused
Japan is fairly strict when it comes to dual citizenship
I might be thinking of visa approval. It's easy if you're from certain countries.
Anyone 50+ would punch you in the face for calling 24 "fucking old"
>You're not old until you're 35.
Only 4 years away...
>It's easy if you're from certain countries.
Are you a wizard?
6 for me and there is no hope in sight that I will straighten my life up enough to go to Japan and waste money on soaplands before then
>too stupid to learn moonrunes
>too poor to get out of this country
>too ugly for life
I just hope it doesn't become a nuclear shithole by the time of the olympics.
I can't die in this fucking idiot overrun country.
I'm hopeless at math, how long will minimum wage as a fast food worker take to save money for a plane ticket, /a/?
It's ok anon... We can start loving our western hemisphere
I-It's okay. You're not even halfway through life.
I mean, 50 is "old" old.
How much money are you looking at for a trip to Japan (ignoring flights because they obviously differ depending on where you live).
Say for 4 weeks, catching the train around to alot of places (except maybe hokkaido), staying in not necessarily expensive places but not complete shitholes, buying a few figs or somethign and eating and drinking lots. like ~$3000?
This image just shits on my dream of of going to animu land
For me I'd save 5k due to gaijin whore tax, and I always like having a bit of extra just in case
Just go, it's a lot of fun. I went for 2 weeks, cost me around $3500 altogether. Between airfare, stuff I bought, and expenses.
Trick is to stay at business hotels, or family inns and not regular hotels. Grab snacks from grocery stores or Euro bakeries instead of the high conbini prices, etc.
Do you book these places in advance, and how do you get directions to them once you get there?
>tfw returned from 3 month holiday in nipland a week ago
>tfw im going back next year to live
I don't know who you are crazy osakan man, but you made our new years
>You're not old until you're 35.
Please don't say this. I've already started using magic.
How do you manage to live there anyways?
You mean it's not a lie? I've only got three years to go. Can't wait. My life will change that day.
There is a saying we have in the place I work at.
Ford Makes Money, Mazda builds cars. Things changed so much over the years, I miss the glory days.
If you're mostly outside of Tokyo, expect around 3k yen per night for hotel. Although I did stay in Osaka for 2200yen/night. I assume you're planning to travel alone?
Food would be around 1-2kyen/day depending on how frugal you were.
Travel costs depends on how you wanna swing it. A 2 week All Japan JR rail pass is like $450-500. That includes all JR buses and trains across the country, including Limited Express and the lowest tier of bullet train (300 series)
That censor on the Japanese man's penis is quite insulting.
I stayed the first 4 days at my friend's dorm in Tokyo, after that I was on my own. I booked them through like hostels.com a day or two in advance.
Avoid the backpacker or international hostel type places unless you like hanging out with other foreign weirdos. I preferred the business hotels and family inns to get a more immersive experience.
Raizan South was the place in Osaka for 2200yen/night that wasnt bad for the price. Then I stayed for like 3k/yen night in Kanazawa. Most expensive for me was like 3900yen/night in Kyoto, but that's because I was technically renting out a room for 2-3 people, bc they didn't have any singles.
Get your cash from the ATMs in the JP Post offices near the stations. ATMs are fee free, and you can directly withdraw from your checking account. Bank just charges you a standard 3% intl fee. Cheapest way to get money basically.
I want to go, but my people skills are less than shit.
I survive on my own now, only because I've learned how to efficiently sneak my way through the terrifying obstacles of society. In a completely foreign environment, I might just suffer from panic attacks.
I can't ask people for help, or ask for a train ticket, or book a hotel, I just can't. Not when all these Japanese people who are definitely judging me with every glance are around me all the time. I have a hard enough time here, when my fears of being judged in public aren't even real.
Stations as in train stations? Also thanks, that's handy for whenever I manage to get my eggs lined up to go. I'd like to do a 3 month stay or possibly longer if I could become a resident, but my only hope for that would be through taking advantage of a obscure situation where my government allows social security pay to continue for people staying/living abroad.
Hell yeah nigga.
Is Chitanda naked in that Hyouka poster third from the top left?
Fucking ditto. I work nights at an autoplant for decent pay, but its often 10-12 hour weekdays. I'm too fucking worn out for it anymore, and my Japanese has gotten rusty.
Maybe when I get a few layoff weeks?
6'3" My head hits the roof of the mustangs, since I refuse to lay back in them while driving (long fucking automobile). Fusions are nice and comfy though.
Just gotta pull the trigger and go for it sometimes. Believe me dude, even if you're worn out and worried about the racism over there. Just think, you can sleep the entire plane trip, then plan to go over the a Japanese style hotspring ASAP once you get there to get some relaxation. That's my dream anyway.
Squating is actually easier to poop, theres a muscle that makes poopin easier that relaxes when you squat, but when you sit it doesn't.
Travel visas are 2 months afaik. Not sure how hard they would be to get extended.
I've also heard there are programs where you can get a work visa in exchange for being a farm hand. They give you room and board then, and maybe some pay on top of that? I'm not entirely sure how the program works.
It's meant to be some kind of cultural exchange.
Quick question, how much would it cost to live out in the country? I am seriously considering living there.
The apartments are butt expensive, that's all I know
I'll go with you
The racism worries is pretty much bullshit. As long as you're considerate, follow common ettiquette as best as you can (escalator stuff, don't eat while walking, etc)
And of course, knowing some Japanese also goes a long ways to opening doors for you.
That look of dread on salespeoples faces of "oh shit don't talk to me" only to ask them the question in Japanese and have them sigh in relief was always funny.
Ever see anything bizarre over there, just completely earth shattering to you?
I'm pretty sure I gave some tourists the story of their trip for all their friends.
Their bus was in just the perfect spot to watch as I had to kill a rabid coyote on the roadside with my carry piece.
All their faces were pressed to the glass in shock and before I could stop myself I just smiled and waved.
Oh I've heard of something similar to this. A friend of mine and his wife got to live in Japan for a while on a farm helping a guy out with the work. Not sure if it was a private deal or part of a program though.
Did you eat it?
That's because cars in the US are simply to get from A to B, not social statements. For that, you spend top dollar and rice out your car or get a more expensive model.
That wouldn't bother me too much. Just a couple weeks ago I gave my brother my hunting bow so he could take care of a coyote that was being a threat to his dogs.
>dat box gap on the chick standing on the left
booking my ticket now.
Do you have a 4 year degree? AFAIK you can't just "decide to live there" -- if you have a degree, what you can do though is go over on the travel visa and spend those 2 months finding a job.
The Japanese professor at university said thats the best way to get a job. If you're already in the country when looking, people can get almost double the starting salary of what people get paid that get hired while abroad.
It's fairly obvious when you're there and see it in action: Stand on the left, Walk on the right. If I remember correctly.
Move to Washington State in the USA, exact same weather, pot is legal, and you gun friendly if that's your thing.
You should try them when you're having a really bad stomachache or diarrhea, it's like a quick flush or something. No sitting down and shitting in short spurts, spraying the entire bowl and your ass with liquid shit.
Rabid coyote? Nope.
But bear is delicious and cougar isn't bad either.
Yeah but imagine being from a country like Japan and seeing some dude in plainclothes stop his car, pull a pistol, and bean a coyote not five feet off the asphalt.
Kyoto look very comfy.
I wish I can move and get a job there someday but I'm already to old for KyoAni.
The squat toilets always make me feel like I'm just going to shit down my ass and get it on my nutsack or something, so I instinctively clench up when it starts coming.
I appreciate the thought.
I'll just have to take baby steps I think. A few Symphobros expressed the idea of going to the next Symphogear Live as a group. That might be fun, even if I'd be the boring creepy one of the group, and it's probably a decent place to start.
If you're "worried" about the racism over there, I hope you're not anything less than a white european guy. Preferably with blond hair or light eyes.
Seriously, the racism isn't much worse than any half decent non-euro country. At least for white people.Obviously, you deal with the normal shit but if anybody is seriously worrying about it, or experiencing it and getting tired from it thats actually pretty funny. Learn the language, and try to make as many friends as you can.
And know its better than South Korea. Seriously, the nationalistic types hate teachers, especially English teachers, and I met a few of them and being a regular person who knows the culture and language at a level beyond "haha, white tourist. AREE GA TWO" should be fine
Shit that's interesting, as I live in Tacoma, WA. Never really thought there were such weather similarities between here and Japan. That's kinda neat. In WA almost nobody uses umbrellas though. Hell I've never even seen an umbrella in a convenience store before, but maybe It's just because I wasn't looking.
Anyone else remember the thread where some anon get a girl?
Don't people in most places do that, sort of automatically?
Thanks for the info brother.
I probably just spend too much time on YNC/ /b/
God damn it, I shouldn't have but I laughed pretty hard.
>Not when all these Japanese people who are definitely judging me with every glance are around me all the time.
Do they actually do this?
If you're being a faggot? Yes.
how much does prepaid data cost over there? i dont think i would survive if i didnt have access to some kind of online dictionary + maps. intl roaming is out of the question for my provider
I wonder what the tour guide said.
You're a foreigner. They're going to be a little wary of you, and will probably assume you're obnoxious and ignorant.
So you have to do everything right in order to prove them wrong, and one mistake will just reinforce their presumptions.
I'm not worried about the racism for just being there. I am worried about getting kicked out of bath houses for my tattoos though.
What's the weather like in Washington?
>I'm asian as fuck
>they assume I'm one of them
>they talk to me
>mfw I don't know shit
shite if you're in Washington state
I'm curious if there are pictures of people dropping by other studios. (like shaft)
What's with the asterisks?
Fucking hell thats beautiful
On an unrelated note.
Anyone else rooting for them. I dont even watch the Olympics
Unless you are Japanese they will know you are pig disgusting non Japanese Asian
Does your tattoo say baka gaijin?
Uh no, between England and Washington State it's pretty similar.
Not sure what state would be similar to Nip land. I'd say Oregon.
>Decent springs, shitty humid summers, calm falls, freezing winters.
I wish I knew the conversation that went on in that bus.
Hah. I have a korean friend like this and it's funny because he fucking hates koreans.
Mild summers with short periods of heat. Long seasons of rain and grey clouds, and hard to predict winters. If you live in WA and don't take vitamin D supplements, you're going to be lacking it.
You know us asians can almost instantly recognize other asians right? And you know nips hate our yellow chink ass right?
I was expecting a sweatshop of some kind with pipes with smokes coming out of them.
Who doesn't hate Koreans?
The goalie is kinda cute for 3D
Is this the weeb out thread?
I read about them today and was impressed. Of course I'm rooting for them.
Its hilarious. I love me some hockey too.
You'd be surprised at the amount of inconsiderate people out there, barely noticing the world and all too centered on their own.
You might be thinking of the WWOOF program.
Yeah but I literally blended into the crowd. Honestly it felt kinda weird.
>mfw one american over talked to me in japanese

Islam is fucked up, you get loli's and shit.
This is kinda fucked up, but I'm so glad I'm not asian.
Ah~I wish I could just move to Japan and be a NEET while claiming my disability benefits from the U.S.
Hurr, you need work visa to live here even if you have a disability.
I wouldn't survive 1 second outside. Sucks being white as fuck.
They might not have lost had they not been refpucked. The puck clearly went in the goal but they called it otherwise.
How do Japs feel about non-white?
Oh, thats interesting. Sorry, I can't really give you advice on that one. The farthest I had issues with was with facial hair but that was only in South Korea (Japan didn't care about facial hair or my pierced ears)
What you talking bout weeb, be happy your the greatest race on Earth.
Seething hatred, I'm pretty sure.
Though I've heard if you're a tall basketball american you can pull off being a visiting NBA star.
I'm black and I was okay over there.
>The farthest I had issues with was with facial hair
What did the filthy coreans say about your beard?
On a scale of 1-10 how jealous were they?
Damn that fucking sucks.
Fuck South Korea.
Long live best Korea
If you mean black people, just go by their depiction in anime.
If you mean Mexican or S.American or some shit, they probably just see them as the smelly vermin they are.
Cause of your nigger cock, they want to star you in their JAVs.
If you're white you're just that fat baka.
If you're any other race you're sub human
They're pretty cool with Hispanics I've heard.
Mostly the Mexican variety.
Blacks get laid easily over there.
Whites get the "ooh so pale skin" master race treatment that expats say gets old quickly.
>Russian people is like black but wrong color by accident
>those 2 salarymen shedding off some stress by having a chuckle at a retarded weeaboo
They fucking hate Russians for good cause too, Russians are fucking stupid, drunks, with zero manners and that's in Russia. Can't imagine what a Russian in another country would act like.
>Blacks get laid easily over there.
Seriously? I'd assumed they would have avoided that sort of stigma.
fucking piece of shit country holding winter olympics in 60 degree weather
There's black people in nip porn?
plenty, gaijinsmash guy was in one of them
Nah, Jap girls are sluts especially the club variety and doing a black for the fun of it is apparently a thing.
There was that one blog by a black dude, gaijin smash that went over that phenomenon.
I am Russian/German and I am a nice, polite person who never drinks, smokes or squats.
>be from Michigan
>just claim to be Canadian any time I leave the country
>have the accent to pull it off
Gets rid of so much of the hate and shit
I'd say incredibly jealous, as one of my friends who revelled when I was finally forced to shave the most had one of those kinda laughable "long stringy, 8 long singular hairs" growing out of each side of his lip, and maybe a few hairs on his chin but it looked like a scab.
Haha, no but seriously even after a few days I would have a full five o'clock and they'd start to give me dirty looks which was my cue to shave
Fuck them, and fuck Soju. Seriously, that shit is just water and sugar with pure alcohol added. Over half the bottles didn't even list rice as an ingredient. They're jumping way too fast into the "We're capitalist and rich! Start cutting every corner we can" scheme
>Russia people is like black but wrong color by accident
Must be the German in you. God had some pity.
But you are mixed, you aren't a dirty tried and true slav. You got that going for you.
Russian women are hot too, fucking crazy in the head though.
>I was finally forced to shave
What the hell do they have against beards? Other than the fact that they can't grow them?
They went over that its costing them a fortune to do it, though. Like 3x more than Vancouver. They've been stockpiling snow for several years up in the mountains covered in giant thermal tarps, etc. And specialized equipment that can make snow in up to 45 degree weather, etc.
>What the hell do they have against beards? Other than the fact that they can't grow them?
Jealousy is one hell of a drug.
Do you know any good sauerkraut brands? This one I'm eating here tastes like shit.
>Fuck South Korea
Seriously. One of the most oppressive shitholes on the face of the planet.
You think Nips hate dirty gaijin? Wait until you get to SK, you'll know what it is like to be a nigger in the Jim Crow south.
Fraid not anon as I don't live in euroland. I live in New Zealand. God I hate Australians
You'd think they'd be a little nicer, knowing that our very presence is all that holds back a million of their screaming, starved northern cousins.
well this was a good thread
fuk u cunt
We hate you too, friend.
basically a blog thread.
But you know what? I like one like this once in a while
Don't you have Aboriginals to lock in pens in the middle of the desert?
By "good" you mean completely not board related?
No you don't.
Why are you asspained now?
In general, I didn't have much problems in Japan considering I don't have a dirty hobo beard and it grows straight and I generally take good care of it (normally go clean shaven but eh, change it up) and they were very accommodating in general and I never had problems with dress or appearance
In Korea it was a bit more strict, however, and is the reason I started learning Japanese so young (and I'm glad I was only in Korea for a year). They didn't like the pierced ears and they straight up told me teachers here always shaved, it was a "cultural" thing, and that I should shave too although they wouldn't push it, they want to be "friendly" and make sure I had a good time.
But yeah, basically it was really weird so I kept it clean shaven pretty much all the time and nipped it up. Honestly I think the guy thought I looked homeless when I had scruff. And thats just the beard shit, the kids were weird as fuck (excluding the kids who had their souls sucked out from the homework and studying and their parents sending them to get even more schooling on weekends).
And the other guy got it right, there's no "Woah! Tall white guy! So cool!" kind of attitude in Korea like there is to Japan, at least not in the same degree. And there's lots of little things that you don't really know about it in general, like their shitty internet and how essentially, Korea really is still recovering from a military dictatorship and is even more racially homogenized than Japan, especially culturally.
And trust me, I integrate and learn the language while lots of other English teachers in places barely know how to speak these languages, let alone write it. I would have thought speaking and writing their language would help teach them English. I had students in Japan tell me it was insane how they actually somewhat enjoyed my classes; but this was because I deviated from the "official" learning plans (essentially its all grammar, not really "learning to speak" english)
But I'm not asspained. I just don't get how can you call this a good thread. It had absolutely nothing to do with anime or manga. Do you enjoy shitposting?
It's called funposting for a reason.
I thought the thread, especially the first half, was a pretty fun read.
Once you guys stopped posting pictures this thread went to shit.
>implying it wasn't shit right from the start
OP here I just got back from class and I have no idea what this thread became but here's more neat stuff. Just random street art which I thought was cool.
wasnt here earlier what class
Is that common?
Somewhat. Just Japan being cute.
Japanese suburb where my inn was, daytime version. Still very nice, I'd love to live here if I could work for a firm that wouldn't treat me like dirt.
That looks cool.
Please post more even though we're already on page 7.
Does anyone have scan of that poster?
It's a glow in the dark poster and she's wearing a white slip.
I'm going to Japan for 1 year in one month..
Not sure why but i'm excited and scared shitless at the same time.
What're you going for?
Is that street art hung up on a wall?
For some reason I can imagine Japanese punks making graffiti on boards and then hanging them up on walls instead of just doing it on the wall
Also that store shop sign is kawaii
Excited cause it's a new land you've wanted to visit and like
Scared because it's a foreign land where you are completely alien to
I went on a business trip and I spent three days there. As a brown person, I felt perfectly fine and the locals were genuinely nice. I guess it didn't hurt that I know the language and I wasn't an annoying tourist. I think the whole notion of Japan being incredibly xenophobic is over-exaggerated.
Nagoya, i need / want to become fluent in moon for work.
That doesn't exist. It's all ford german at most.
