Bad / Negative things about living in Japan? (for people who live in / have been to Japan)

11 January 2016 - 10:05 AM

Due to certain developments in life and my Japanese language skills slowly but steadily improving living in Japan (after traveling there a few times first of course) has come up for consideration again.


Especially with the filtered view us idol fans might have a lot of things about Japan might get sugar-coated and we only see the good things. I'm curious to hear what people who traveled there for a long enough time or are even living there now would consider some of the worse aspects of live in Japan. I think sweetbene is living in Japan and stellosphere traveled there a bunch too so those opinions especially would be helpful, but those are the only two I actually know of so everyone else please share your experiences as well. 


Please only reply if you have actually been there / live there.

STEREO JAPAN / Edge Dub Monkeyz

26 October 2015 - 11:28 PM


STEREO JAPAN are a EDM style group that was formed in 2015. They are known for having very intense shows and very dedicated fans referred to as "Party People". Each of the sub-groups has one girl who is considered the DJ of the group, being in charge of playing the background music, switching the songs or playing samples. There other girls are referred to as MCs. It's not uncommon for the members to leave the stage and perform in the middle of the fans. Fun and "trolling" (if you want to call it that) are the most important parts of the group's activities. Whether it's fake idol-style introductions to make fun of common idols or fake disbandment challenges like having to run a whole marathon or having to sell LESS than 10k copies of their single, creativity is something their managers do not lack at all. STEREO JAPAN (currently) consists of the main act Stereo Tokyo and Stereo Fukuoka, the latter having started their activities beginning of 2016.

Originally, when STEREO JAPAN was formed they consisted of Stereo Tokyo and Stereo Osaka. Due to creative differences between managements Osaka split up end of 2015 and from then on continued under their new name Edge Dub Monkeyz and are no longer associated with the STEREO JAPAN franchise. The three youngest members of Edge Dub Monkeyz formed a sub-unit in the middle of 2016 called Asobino Jikan.

Ordering from Japan, "fun" with customs

17 August 2014 - 11:11 AM

It's a problem probably all foreign idol fans share: Customs. Not only is it a huge bother to always have a huge amount of cash at home when you order something, it also makes ordering a lot less satisfying and actually a huge pain in the ass. The last time I ordered a big amount of idol stuff I had to pay almost 200 bucks customs fee alone. And when I ordered just one Bluray I also had to pay quite a lot extra fee.


So, are there any common ways people like us can use to avoid such stuff? Some time ago YesAsia was able to somehow avoid taxing for us but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. And everytime I ordered from cdjapan I was definitely taxed. There are many new releases coming as well as some older stuff I want to order so knowing a way to avoid stupid customs would be great. I could probably live with having to pay customs if it would at least make sense in a way but it's really just money grab for no actual reason.
