I'm in Japan, Konichiwa


#1

Hey guys so it’s been a while, I’m getting settled here in Gotemba, Japan, really close to Mt. Fuji, I’m based at Camp Fuji. I’m still working on getting WiFi in my room so until then no streaming/forums really, and my computer should be here in the next 2 weeks or so. I’ve already gotten to go out a little bit, but not too much exploring and of course the first thing I did was buy Dark Souls 3… and a 3DS. I’ll try and get some pictures of the mountain to post as its really cool to see every day.

Just wanted to say I miss you all and I hope I’ll be back as a regular soon :slight_smile:


#2

Some days you can see it clearly and some days you can’t.


#3

Good to hear from you man. Awesome view! Hope you get some time to explore :smile:


#4

You had to buy a 3ds there? I thought they were issued to everyone by the government. :shrug:


#5

Freaking awesome man!! I’m jelly!


#6

Yeah when I do the new join brief on the 12th then I’ll get to start leaving base, with a buddy. After 3 months I can go off on my own!

@Sennish unfortunately I lost the first one, so bought this one and Pokémon Y, I wanna get Monster Hunter 4 as well though.


#7

There is a new monster hunter coming na/EU consoles this year. Did you have to buy a Japanese region locked 3ds?


#8

Japan… Ramen, sushi, all that damn good food!!!


#9

No I didn’t


#10

Dude it’s gorgeous there! I’m glad your getting settled!


#11

For the last few days it’s been really foggy, but yeah man on nice days it’s great, and I can’t leave base yet but am allowed to take a bus to a couple of other bases kinda close by, and the scenery on the drives is really awesome.


#12

Am I thinking of China as the one with all the smog?


#13

Yeah, Japan has super-strict rules on motor vehicles (among other things) to keep pollution down. For as densely-populated as it is, it’s amazingly clean (most of the time; Roppongi is, well, Roppongi).

Where @DrizztDo_Urden69 is at (jealous, btw) is great; any obstruction of the view is just fog/clouds :wink:


#14

Haha it is pretty awesome. but yeah any of the fog and all that that obstructs view is just cuz of the mountain being right there. I get my red card on the 12th and then I’ll be exploring, once I get my gold card I’ll be exploring Roppongi lol. Already went through a course for a Combat Life Saver cert. This place is really small and relaxed and is such a nice change from where I was before it’s almost a culture shock how different it is lol.


#15

I spent some time there training when I was in. Really gorgeous area. Trying to not get lost in a forest where trees were planted in a grid pattern was fun.

Have fun in Tokyo when they let you go.


#16

Would love to go, keep the pics rolling!
