HAVING FUN IN THE COUNTRY WHERE EVERYTHING IS SMALL
Find the tiny hidden gems of this metropolis, meet awesome foreigners, get wasted the Japanese way and it will change the way you see the world!
You can only love it or hate it - nothing in between (although sometimes I have mixed feelings too). Japanese still think gay is just a phase, some of them are scared of drag queens, some do not use condoms as STDs is a gaijin (foreigner) thing. They say the gay neigborhood SHINJUKU NICHOME the largest number of homovenues in Asia, but only 4 of them are gaijin friendly, and they are as tiny as everything else here…
It's a small chance that you will make local friends with them being so racist and/or shy and/or speaking Jenglish; however, it's one of the best place in the world to meet smart handsome classy guys from around the globe as it takes some guts to travel / live in this far away country. I made a few really good friends in these lower class venues (that's what true tokyote would call them).
Go there, get a drink (or better a few!), talk to the classy shit-faced people to make it the best night (or weekend) of your life! … and make sure you come back with the first train, as that's an experience on it's own.
