Going to Japan- Is there something I should be on the look out for while there?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Will be in Japan in a few weeks. I have a pair of recent JH 13's IEMs and listen to them via my iphone 4s much of the time. Also have an iPod Gen 5, but have yet to convert my flacs to ALAC (which I'd really rather not do... but will if I have to in order to get lossless material)

 

My question: While in Japan is there anything over there that can not be had in the United States? Any shops/ areas in Tokyo I should be on the lookout for? PHA-2?

Good advice thus far. I will take both of these posts into much consideration.

 

Note to self: Avoid Yakuza and taking wife to Fuji Avic. Check.

AFAIK, Yakuza are mostly on Kyushu (and in seedy alleyways, but you might not recognize that they're seedy alleys until it's too late).

 

Also, be on the lookout for currawong. He's watching. :tongue_smile:

 

You won't miss AnakChan, though. He's everywhere.
