    Fellow mayberrians it looks like I'm heading to Japan!

    My buddy just got his first friend/family passes for the year and wants to start an "annual trip" thing! so 4 of us are going to Japan in February!

    Right now the group of us have got a small list of things we would like to do/see, but was wondering if any of you who've visited Japan or are living in Japan could hook a brother up with some awesome suggestions!

    Apparently we'll be staying in the Shibuya district in some rented apartment thats like a 5 minute walk away. (hopefully don't get scammed but I trust Airbnb)

    to do list so far...
    Convince the gang to go see ZST!44 live at differ ariake
    do a Tokyo pub crawl
    View the city at Tokyo Tower or somewhere else
    Visit dat Fish market
    Yoyogi Park
    Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden
    go ham at the Arcades
    buy meals from vending machines
    the missus and I want to visit the Studio Ghibli museum as well


    we gonna be there for like 8 nights so we're not sure what else we can get into so any suggestions would be great!

    If you can take tone to travel, go to Kyoto. It's the cultural epicenter of the country

    I went last year. Great place. Eat tons of ramen. Learn a few phrases in Japanese. If you can, take the bullet train over to Kyoto. They have a lot of cool shrines and temples. And again, I can't stress this enough..... eat all the ramen.

    I recommend going to Kamakura the biggest buddha in Japan.

    If your in a party mood head to Ageha there is a bus that leaves from Shibuya.

    Akihabara is a pretty cool place for nerds but it can be very weird.

    Check about the fish market you might not be allowed to visit anymore.

    I would definitely swing by Kyoto and potentially take the 90 minute flight to Sapporo for something different.
