I'm off to Japan...
Less than 12 hours till I leave for Japan to stay for 10 months, so goodbye! I'll try to keep you all posted, I should have internet access at least sometimes, so maybe I'll put pictures here and stuff. I'll also try to update my fanfic, sometime. Ok, bye guys!

JofaGuht 08-30-2005 11:37 PM

Sweetness. Where in Japan?

Rubacava 08-31-2005 12:19 AM

Yokohama, but I'll go to school in Tokyo.

Sallim 08-31-2005 12:33 AM

James Isaac 08-31-2005 03:45 AM

Bye. Have fun.


Rubacava 09-05-2005 07:14 PM

Here is my description of Japan so far;
1. porn.
2. confusing.
3. schoolgirls.
4. weird food.
5. porn.

That pretty much sums it up.

JofaGuht 09-06-2005 09:08 PM

What about arcades?

Sallim 09-07-2005 07:05 AM

nice desciption..but
porn everywhere or what?

Rubacava 09-07-2005 07:16 PM

Yes, porn everywhere. And there are some arcades, yes. We found a Typing of the Dead machine in one! It was so cool.

Zaarin 09-10-2005 11:01 AM

My favourite arcade games there were the "Walk the Dog" one, and the "Drive a bus" one. Hilarious.

Sallim 09-26-2005 08:44 AM

Ok after almost one month, how is japan now and more interresting, how the people react to foreigners?
Did you make some photos?
ohoh! How is the weather over there ? :)

90SK 09-27-2005 08:52 PM

Probably partly cloudy. Lucky dog...

Sallim 09-27-2005 11:14 PM

Nice Avatar Mr.Dan Smith ;)

WE LUM YOU!!! <333
And do try your best to keep us posted now and again, if ever you have time. I'm very curious to hear about your adventures. ^__^

Rubacava 09-28-2005 09:37 PM

I lum all you too! XD
Okay, I have had LOTS of adventures! I'll edit this post at lunch time to tell you about some of them, but right now we're about to have more Japanese class. We're learning how to say "please put your clothes on". Hooray!

Sallim 09-28-2005 11:18 PM

let me guess its ..." Onegai anata-wa ..." well...

cant wait for the adventures, besides that, the fact that your still alive (over there) is amazing!

90SK 09-28-2005 11:27 PM

Tell me about it. Be sure to give us info on the culture shock factor!

Rubacava 09-29-2005 12:14 AM

I'll just make a new post. Anyway, crazy Japan adventures!
I arrived in Japan on the first of September, and my friend Heidi and I ended up staying in a hotel for the first two nights. One of them was the fanciest hotel like... ever. Seriously, it had a theme park, and an aquarium, and a two story bowling alley... and a lot more. After that, we met our host families. Mine is very nice! They took me to a shrine last weekend, I'll post a picture or two at the bottom of this post. Also, I had quite the adventure with a bank the other day. They forgot to give me about 50 cents when I got my travelers checks turned into yen, and so they came to my host families house, and apologized and bowed a lot, and gave me TINFOIL. Yes, tinfoil, as well as kleenexes, and a pen. That's all for now, I'll post a picture of me in my uniform and at the shrine here:
getting my fortune told
my uniform.

Rei_Nokato 09-29-2005 12:16 AM

Yay! You ARE alive!! @_@ *tackleglomp* Hee, those sound like interesting classes. xD

Rei_Nokato 09-29-2005 12:21 AM

Waaah! ^__^ Nyoo~ what a cute uniform! 'm so jealous. ><
Everything sounds so cute in Japan, why is that? XD; Even the bank people!
You should keep the tinfoil as a souvenir. :D

Smon 09-29-2005 07:49 AM

Take a picture of a square watermelon, I know how to make them, and I've seen them in cartoons, I've just never seen one alive... I heard merchants in Japan make them so they're easier to manage.

I guess that’s the price we pay for over-culturiztion in America and Europe. Japan sounds like they’ve retained a lot of “awesome”.

VampireNaomi 10-17-2005 03:34 AM

Wow, I can't believe I never replied to this thread before.

Your adventures sound fantastic! You must be having so much fun over there. How fluent are you in the language? Did you know much of it before you travelled? Do people speak English well?

GendoTheGreat 10-17-2005 09:35 AM

What's it smell like over there?

Velasco 10-18-2005 08:05 PM

A mate of mine got married to a Japanese bird, and he now lives out there with her. He told me that it is a complete culture shock, and nothing like England (therefore, much of the West?) at all. He even went as far as saying its a completely different world.

Good luck with it all, seems like you're having a wicked time.

Rubacava 10-26-2005 12:06 AM

What does it smell like? That's actually a very good question. When I first moved here, I hated the smell. But now I guess I must be used to it? I don't notice anymore.

90SK 10-26-2005 09:48 AM

Can you describe the smell? I mean, was it bad, or was it just different?

Velasco 10-26-2005 06:00 PM

Fruity? 8)

90SK 10-26-2005 07:06 PM


No pun intended. >_>

Rubacava 10-26-2005 11:58 PM

Well, it was VERY different. Not bad usually, but then all of a sudden you'll run into this pocket of horrible disgusting bad air, and you'll start gagging. Normally fine though. Everything does smell different though. Even the trash.

Rei_Nokato 11-02-2005 08:20 PM

The TRASH smells different? o_o Odd. Maybe because of different food? it a pleasant smell? xD
Skinner: Okaaay, can we get off this topic please?
