Goin' to Tokyo...
show user profile  Odie
Man, I'm so excited. My friend Andrew and I are going next month for about 2 weeks. Then we're going to stop in Taipei on the way back and meet up with another friend.

We've been compiling a list of places to go, things to see, etc.

Since I know there are a lot of travelers here, I wanted to ask you all if you had any suggestions for things that we absolutely must do. Oh yeah, we're also heading down to Kyoto/Osaka for a few days.

Wow Odie, that sounds like me in the 90's. I spent 3 weeks in Japan, mostly Tokyo, but Gifu/Nagoya, and Kyoto/Osaka as well. I even went to Taiwan for a few weeks. (And yes Horizon, I slept with an Asian woman. But she was my girlfriend at the time)
In Japan, definitely ride the Shinkansen (bullet train). If you are into prices that are unjustifiably high, go to the Ginza district. I believe that the cheap electronics are in Akihabara and the nightlife is in Roppongi. In Kyoto go to the old castles and if you have the time go see the Sanjusangendo (look it up)

Taipei is one of the dirtiest places I have been. Mostly due to exhaust pipes and rain. The national museum has some great Chinese art and the Chiang Kai Shek and Sun Yatsen memorials are great landmarks to see. Be advised that you MAY need a VISA to be in Taiwan, I did. My passport still has the little tag they attached to it. "Warning: Drug trafficking is punishable by death according to the criminal laws of the Republic of China"

Me in front of the Taipei National Museum (I forget the actual name)

My Japan trip was free as it was a scholarship contest. The Taiwan trip only cost me airfare since I was staying with old girlfriend's family.

Thanks, guys :)

owtdor, thank you very much for the suggestions. I will try to do all the things you mentioned.

droogenbrother, my trip is free, too. I did a rush job for a client last year who is a pilot for Delta and he gave me some buddy passes in trade :) The taiwan airfare was only $400 round trip (out of Tokyo) and my friend is letting us stay at her house there.

I actually know a pair of hot Asian twins. Something tells me I will never have a threesome with them though.

Don't rely too heavy on my recommendations too heavily since I was in Japan in 1993 and Taiwan in 1997. I am sure that things have changed significantly since then.
I used to live with a Japanese family here in Arizona while I was in martial arts. They moved back and I have not heard from them since. Any chance you could look them up while there?
As soon as I get my scanner back up and running, I will scan my visa page so you can see the tag they added.
