I was curious if you have any recommendations for places to eat or izakaya to check out while in Tokyo?
I've been researching some clubs and am interested in checking out Space Lab Yellow and Womb, have you been to either of those?
Edit: BTW did you go to ageHa on the day Mondo Grosso was playing?
Hmm...I don't really have any food recommendations as I have yet to have a bad meal here. It seems as if you pretty much can't go wrong.
I have not been to those clubs yet...we didn't make it to Ageha yet either.
Are Marvel or DC graphic novels sell like hot cakes like the Magna does over here? Are there Japanese versions of American cartoons (like turtles or Teen Titans or the Justice League)?
is there a heavy Japanese import scene? Like in america we have a fairly big market for import games.. is there a heavy market for American games (not localized) in Japan?
I don't think American comics/cartoons do well here. They don't contain enough girls in short skirts.
My guess is while there is a market for American games (imports), it is probably not heavy. I've been to a few stores in Akihabara, but they are small. The demand might be similar for Japanese imports in the USA, but I couldn't me sure.
Cheapy, are you planning on attending a Pride fighting match? It is so much more brutal than the UFC is here in America.
Do you miss eating at some of the great fast food places that we have here?
Yes, I do want to see a Pride match at some point. I watched some on TV and I liked it.
I am not a big fast food fan, but Japan pretty much has the fast foot bases covered, and they do a much better job over here. Imagine a land with clean fast food restaurants (and bathrooms) and service with a smile!
The only fast food places I haven't seen are Burger King and White Castle (which I do actually miss).
