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)
DL-san OUT 🙃
