JAPAN = DARK HOLE FOR YOUR WALLET

I’ve been raping Facebook and Instagram with pictures from Japan when I was there – but OUI OUI, in case you missed it; I was there for a couple of days. So all my money is gone🖕.

Let’s be honest, Japan is a FOOD PARADISE. You just want to try everything all the time, from the 7/11 unlimited fried stuff to the 5-euro-a-piece sushi (OK LAH BEST SUSHI IN MY LIFE). There are also so many weird but unmissable things worth throwing your yens at such as buying a sexy racoon dog keychain, going to the [input anything you want] café, feeling like Barbie in the photo booth or seeing live JPop (mostly the chaos that comes along).

Obviously, I implemented several strategies to spend less; but at some point, I tried to win a giant Pokeball teddy bear at the arcade centre. Anyways, as I’m a weird guy who drinks 3 ice coffees a day, it’s a bit difficult. BUUUUT…. I did find some smart solutions!

First tip: do NOT eat that 60-euro melon. Second tip: shut down your Hello Kitty fetish for a few days. Last tip: hitchhiking is pretty smooth in Japan! It also allows you to meet some (not a lot) Japanese peeps who treat you like deep shit (very interesting to experience here actually). But don’t get me wrong, Japanese people are AWESOME.

Last words: I will never look at cup noodles the same way again (I already miss you ramen)

  1. Haha yeah Japan is so expensive! I went to Tokyo and Kyoto but didn’t visit Nagoya. Is there a lot to do there apart from the amazing food? I agree with you about the food, Japanese food is so amazing, I couldn’t get enough of it!

    1. Oh I did eat a lot of ramens and a lot of sushis! I eat instant noodles quite often but there is nothing to compare with genuine ramens hahahaha. I also got my most expensive piece of sushi ever but boy did the salmon piece melt if my mouth!

  2. I’ve heard so much about how expensive Japan is, so I’m really saving up for that one! €60 for melon?!! I’ll stick to fresh water if that’s not too expensive!
