    hi,
    my girlfriend is in japan right now for fun. she told me that if I can think of anything she will bring it back to germany as a present.

    can you guys think of anything a nintendo/game-freak could only get in japan? what should I tell her?

    all suggestions are welcome.

    take care.

    I would probably get some weird food like black-black gum.

    Either that or a NDS thats a different color.

    I went to Japan last December.
    I got a Dualshock3, sakura scented salt (Sorry I couldn't resist. It actually tastes good), two Yukatas for me and my girlfriend (Yukatas are bathrobes, you can bath while wearing them strangely. We mainly use them as PJs =P), electronics in Akihabara isn't THAT cheap although I'm not sure about Germany.

    There are just so many weird non-game things in Japan, I'd recommend those over games.
    Maybe a seXBOX 3600? Looked like it was decently priced (3600 Yen) for its contents. [​IMG]

    Buy a bunch of random stuff from a japanese porn store, and figure out what it is for.

    I would recommend rare manga that is impossible to buy in America. Also weird games that you have to import otherwise.

    The "wipe the ass thing" is really just a bidet.
    It's disgusting when places DON'T have them (i.e., most of the U.S.).

    The UFO games are nearly impossible (for me anyway) and even for the people who can do it end up paying more for that crap than they would just buying it outright from a store.

    As for a car, I bought my Honda Life for 2000 bucks or so. It's almost small enough to bring on the plane as checked luggage [​IMG]

    I'd get some flashy robot or obscure games, or perhaps some cool manga (which I can't read at all but is still cool anyway).
