    Bad idea, I doubt you'll get that through customs.

    Get me a Cinnamoroll plushie

    Games you need (You must buy at least 1 of these)

    Blood of Bahamut (Aug 3 release) DS
    Tales of VS. (Aug 6) PSP
    Item Getter (Aug 3) DS
    Trinity Universe (Aug 6) PS3

    I hope you stay until at least the 3rd otherwise you'll miss out on games.

    One word. Pocky!!!

    BUY LOTS OF IT.

    I, myself, have never had it, but my ex-friend from MSN a long time ago, would always have it, and I was jealous. I've always wanted some. D:

    Buy one of those megaman drinks.

    Best places to go for you are prolly Ahikabara and Osaka.

    Well, no if it's all kiddie porn.

    But apparently, the Japanese are really into that shit.

    Why not take notes about what're the biggest trends in Japan? Plenty of us would love to hear it.

    Also, I heard that the Mother games like Mother 3 are incredibly popular there in comparison to the States. And damn, would I love one of those official carts...................

    You can buy Pocky at generic grocery stores (Kroger, Fred Meyer, etc). They're not even that good.

    whats the point of buying old region locked games?

    you would have a to buy a system with it, learn JP, and then find out you still cant play it because JP uses NTSC while AUS uses PAL

    What's the point of buying any game, when you can get it for free on the internet?

    For the hell of it, and for the bragging rights, and to support the creators of the games/consoles, etc.


    Another suggestion for the OP, check out the Noobtoob goes to Japan videos. They aren't very informational, but they do say some cool places in Japan, and give some nice ideas on what to do there.
