    My sister and I are traveling to Japan this summer and I have a couple concerns! Mainly, we're flying into Haneda airport and staying in the Harajuku/Shibuya area - Do we need to purchase a subway pass to get to and from? I figured once we're in the area we could walk rather than take a train anywhere but I was wondering if I need a pass to leave the airport or if I could purchase a quick, temporary, one way ticket? Also, while I'm trying my best to learn Japanese I'm still not the best! Is it hard for English speakers to navigate Tokyo? Finally, another concern when leaving the airport is finding our hotel! I plan on googling the address and writing down directions since I'm sure there is no WiFi. I know we can get pocket Wi-Fi at the airport but our hotel includes it as well. Would it be best to purchase the Wi-Fi at the airport just to get to the hotel or can we make due? I know, a lot of questions but I have first time out of the country jitters! Any tips or answers are appreciated! Thank you!! :)

  • Are people still treated badly in Japan if they have tattoos?

    I have a goal to go to Japan eventually but I've heard that you'll be treated badly if you have tattoos even if you're a foreigner, mainly because of the Yakuza stigma. Is this still true?

    I ve been wanting to go to Japan since I was little, and I have been trying to teach myself the language for 3 years but because it s by myself I haven t been able to catch on and remember much at all (only know very little basics and hiragana). I still want to go to Japan, but my family aren t interested and I don t have any friends so I would have to go by myself. Would any of you (who have actually been on one please) suggest a tour group (it would be including flights, England to Japan)? Or do you think I would be fine going around by myself with minimal rememberance of the language? Also tips to help remember Japanese would be good too! I use Drops, Memrise, Duolingo and what I can for HelloTalk too, but it doesn t seem to do much.

    In these short-term apartments, you pay a rent and deposit, and you stay in the furnished room for a month or two. the USA has extended stay hotels, but the ones I'm thinking of in Japan aren't hotels-- they look like mansion-style apartments, there's no lobby, there's no housecleaning, you're given a mailbox like a regular apartment-- but it's a short-term stay instead of a year. I've seen short-term apartments in Shinagawa, Shinkuku (the nicest-looking one I've seen) and Yokohama. What do you have to do to apply for one? Are there any available for tourists and business travelers?

  • Can Japanese people find out if they are descendants of Samurai?

    Best answer: Yes and no. Japan and China maintained birth records long before the rest of the world did so. Most Japanese maintain family records of their family's history (e.g. family tree).

    Best answer: Yes and no.

    Japan and China maintained birth records long before the rest of the world did so. Most Japanese maintain family records of their family's history (e.g. family tree). A Japanese friend of mine can trace his family all the way back to 1380 A.D. and he told me there are other Japanese families who can go further back.

    Before the modernization of Japan, only the aristocrats and samurais had surnames (last name). Everyone else only had a given name. However, when Japan was modernized during the Meiji Restoration (1868), everyone had to choose a last name and so the name may or may not be that of a samurai family. In some cases, commoners choose the name of the samurai clan that once ruled their province so it muddles up the record. Furthermore, there were many samurais who gave up their samurai status long before the Meiji Restoration and became farmers, merchants, etc. Some of them changed their names which is very common in Japan.
