Yeah, it's not Bansko, that's for sure. I'm asking around to see if I can figure something out when it comes to accommodation. The best option might be to live in Tokyo and go on various ski trips. At least having a community would be worthwhile. I'll keep you posted. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello nomads! What's the best way to stay in Japan for 6mo? It seems the waiver program only grants a 3mo stay for each visit . Is it possible to get any extension?
jwjwjw 26d
Looks like there a visa program for those who graduated from specific universities Is this the best option? or are there other alternatives? Keen to hear some experiences.
jwjwjw 26d
Has this been published yet?
jwjwjw 26d
Any updates? have you landed in Japan and try this out? I found another option here
benguild 26d
I vaguely recall that you can maybe extend it to 90 days, but Iโ€™m not sure if itโ€™s better than just flying out and back in
nottug 26d
anyone skiing in hokkaido december?
AFAIK Japan is not an easy place to spend more than 3 months at a time in. If you're younger and from specific countries, you can get a working holiday visa, I think that's for a year.

Other than that, visa exempt countries get you up to 3 months. You can come back for another 3 months, but I think they really want there to be a 3 month gap in between, as it's phrased as basically "3 month visa exemption every 6 months". And Japan does not seem to have leeway on this like other countries do.
There's extended tourism visas available but they're generally available if you can show very substantial amounts of money in your bank account. like, kind of obscene amounts
Japan loves its tourists, but only for so long ๐Ÿ˜ž
I haven't been yet, but researched it. Apart from the rather main areas, like Shinjuku, one of the "better" but slightly further out places is Asakusa. However wherever you end up staying, it's mostly important to make sure it's within walking distance of a main train line so you can get around without too much issue
arsenm 26d
It's so easy to get around it doesn't really matter
I'd agree with aresnm. There are so many great areas to choose from in Tokyo. I probably wouldn't pick something right in the heart of things (e.g. Shinjuku, Shibuya, Nihonbashi), but even a stop or two away from some of these places can have quite a nice neighbourhood feel.

I found Airbnb to be a bit expensive compared to Metroresidences, Atinn, unionmonthly. I booked with Metroresidences and was broadly happy.

Be sure to get the Welcome Suica card at the airport (only the airport) in order to easily use public transportation
arsenm 25d
If you can load suica value with your credit cars on your phone, donโ€™t bother with the physical one. They broke foreign Visa cards a year or two ago apparently so Iโ€™m stuck with a physical one
benguild 25d
December is probably too early for good snow but you could get lucky
benguild 25d
ndcsvduervmgvn I wouldnโ€™t stay in Asakusa, itโ€™s quite far from most things. better to take an afternoon trip over

nottug 25d
in nagano for sure but hokkaido is looking fairly solid it seems, as long as your flexible abt which mountain you go to but def a little iffy for sure
youssef 24d
since june it's impossible for a foreigner to get a normal suica, hence the welcome suica
youssef 24d
I think you can still get one if you have a Japanese bank account, or maybe through the phone
youssef 24d
otherwise the welcome suica works great, but only for 28 days
benguild 24d
seriously? canโ€™t you just create one on your phone with Apple or Android Pay though?

Hi! I'm on my way to Japan and just curious whether you can suggest me 2nd hand camera stores in Tokyo, want to buy Ricoh GR3x and realized that it's hard to find this camera even in Japan

Well, decided to buy Fuji X100V, surprised that in Turkey are the lowest prices on Fuji in the world
sascha 21d
Yeah I had x100v before. Great if you got one. I bought mine 3 years ago for 1200 euro and sold it just few months ago for 1800 euro haha! Have fun and checkout fuji recipes
sascha 21d
itโ€™s technically the better camera, just a bit chunkier

I recommend Mount Takao! It's located in Tokyo.
You can hike there all year round.
Thanks a lot hgsdwbhh much appreciate it!
one more question!

i should go to tokyo if i want to know the culture but also be a lot in the nature ?
or do you recommend me another city ?
Thanks for everything man !
nobu06 19d
Thereโ€™s more nature in other places than Tokyo.
But I think you can enjoy nature even in Tokyo!
March is the cherry blossom season! You can see it in some places such as Ueno Park, and Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
Hello, this is my last week in Tokyo, if anyone wanna hang out, message me! ๐Ÿ™‚
