I'm in flux right now. Debating on whether to move back again or bring my family here. I'll probably will try to be there this spring sometime after Sakura week.

I have a friend in Kagoshima already but she's pretty busy so not sure if were going to be able to meet up. Plus, Kagoshima is like in the opposite direction of every other major city so I don't know if it would be worth it. Basically, I'm not sure what major cities to hit so any suggestions would be great.

One day my man, one day.




I was planning on taking the ferry over to Japan as well (which I assume your doing). Seems pretty straight-forward.

What is this noodle stadium?
So you can stay in 24 hour cafe's, maido cafe, if it were only a couple of nights thats not unheard of, you can find hostels there as well but they are pretty tiny and cramped. If you're backpacking then I can see staying in 24 hour cafe's or McDonalds even Karaoke clubs.

Kagoshima my father in law is from there. Their Japanese dialect is different. Thats an old trading city. But unless you have to see your friend I suggest definitely going north. Mostly everything will be in English though as far as traveling.

Do not forget this last train means LAST TRAIN! I had to learn that lesson the hard way a few times.

Plus not every train goes every stop. Sometimes got the last train going to a stop that wasn't where we needed. Your'e just ****ed, cabs are so expensive, and train stations are far from each other.

Hell yeah no one really takes cabs until the train ends. I've been on the wrong side of those trains that ENDS in multiple different destinations.

You pay for distance in Japan. I wouldnt suggest taking normal trains from one city to another unless you have that kind of time to kill.
