Just out of sheer curiosity, when do people start getting married/having kids in Japan?

Is it like in America where people are graduating high school and having kids and getting married in their early 20s, or even earlier?

Women try to get married in their early 20s and guys try to get married in their late 20s. Its still a trend but the trend has been declining

>What did you liked the most?
Nagasaki was pretty cool, Fukuoka is also really nice. Other cool places included Aso, Kagoshima and Kurokawa Onsen, probably one of my favorite places I've been to in Japan so far. Beppu is an overrated shithole though, don't go there

>1/2

I have a question regarding the train system on Google Maps. For example, I want to go from Pearl Hotel Ryogoku to the Shinjuku Station. On Google Maps, it shows me the different ways I can go and how much each one will be (the one I chose was by train and it will be 270 yen)

However, it says 11 stops and when I click on it I am given 11 stations. Are these 11 stations the train I'm on will pass and therefor the train will stop 11 times or will I have to actually get out of the train and get into another one 11 times?

Pics for better understanding

The train will just stop 11 times, you don't get out.

They're just stations you'll go past. It'll explicitly tell you if you need to change trains.

Is is possible to go surfing and take classes in or around Fukuoka from October to December? I'm pretty much a beginner (I only once took a two-hour class in Sydney), but I'll be in the area and would like to learn surfing.

Are you asking if surfing classes exist or if surfing classes with teachers that teach in English exist?

I'm travelling soon and I need to go from Narita Airport to Kaihinmakuhari station. Google maps says I can take the "Narita Airport Limusine Bus", but the limusine bus website is a bit confusing and I could only find info about buses going from Haneda Airport to kaihinmakuhari, not from Narita.

Have any of you ever used the limusine bus service? Should I just try the trains? Supposedly this bus stops right in front of my hotel, if I get the train I will need to walk for 5 minutes or something like that.

Hyperdia provides much better results for the trains and allows for customization. Google just shits out whatever generic algo results they have for every city in the world. Yahoo has the best one but you need Japanese

The couple times you've been on the train have you not noticed how no Japanese people uses Google maps for the trains? They all use Navitime or Yahoo. Hyperdia gets their results from the same company that powers Navitime.

It can't be helped.

In any case, for anyone traveling to Japan and looking for something new to put on their playlist, try BLU-SWING. Jazzy group with some easy listening funky tunes, perfect for flights or taking in the nightlife.

Going to Tokyo in December, is the train network really complicated to navigate if you are completely unable to read a lick of japanese, or is it manageable?

Also, do you guys think 2 weeks is overkill? Considering the price of the plane ticket, 1 week seems like a waste.
Thoughts?

>"Narita Airport Limusine Bus"
I had an early flight on my way home, so this worked great for me, takes around the same time as the train overall as it dropped me at my hotel. Didn't have to worry about being late, getting the wrong train etc.

>Buy return ticket at Limousine Airport Bus desk when leaving the Narita. Tell them where you're staying and what time you want to leave.
>Go to the corresponding bus stop outside. Give the guys working there you ticket when asked.
>Get on bus, get off at your stop about an hour and a half later.
>When checking in to your hotel, give them your return bus ticket and book a seat for the journey home, they'll have a timetable for you to pick when to leave.
>Be at the reception desk about 20 mins before your bus leaves to play it safe. You'll be escorted to it at the right time.

I didn't say google maps would fail you, I said the others are better and allow for more options, like only using a certain company, putting in your commuter pass/day pass for cheapest rates, a larger number of trips that end up at the same place etc.

Just got here a few days ago. It's simple enough. Most signs are in English, and if that's too complicated just ask a staff member and they will point you in the right direction.

I've begun planning a post graduation trip to Japan for myself and a friend.

We're currently budgeting 460,000 JPY each for the trip with the possibility of expanding.

We'd like some advice on the itinerary, the dates are set as we've already booked flights to and from Japan. It's only rough at the moment but we are trying to figure out if:
-We've got a reasonable mix of places to see both modern and cultural sights.
-We've set ourselves up with too much time in some places and not enough in others.

I've never been to Japan before but my friend has previously studied in Fukuoka short-term and visited Tokyo and Hiroshima. However the itineraries were mostly set out by the university etc and didn't allow for much time to travel freely.


Also some advice on going to see a metal show would be cool.
