Yes I have been to Japan several times but mainly on business. I used to have a wholesale/retail business for many years and some of the buying was done in Japan, so we went there regularly. However as we were working, we did not do a lot of sight seeing.

It was Osaka and Tokyo that we visited. And it was very interesting.

I went to Japan on a working holiday when I was 19. I went on my own with no Japanese language skills. It was such a life changing experience for me. I learnt another language and to be independent. I had to grow up very quickly and I have a much deeper understanding about my own culture and language. I like to go back and visit my Japanese friends every few years and get homesick every September. Travelling changes you forever.

Even as a child I had immense interest in Japan and the artistic cultures of this country.I have never been there though. It is one destination which I would definitely love to visit,especially after my friend who teaches Japanese at High Schools in this region,has told me of the many wonderful visits to friends she has made.The photos she shows me after these trips are so very beautiful. I have many very beautiful small items from Japan as well as an antique tea set which is so thin you can almost see through it! Amazing!!
It's not on my bucket list or anything but if I had the chance I would visit.

No I have never been....I would have gone one day.

But....sadly not now, not into 'Radiation'.
Yes, for a couple of weeks as a teenager. It was a very interesting experience being the only red haired white person in a sea of Japanese people. Strangers stared and took my photo.

I liked what I saw of Japan (a beautiful town in the mountains, some temples and a castle, interesting food...) and I'd like to visit again one day and spend a bit more time there.
No, I haven't, & again no, not interested in going there, especially after 2011 Tsunami, & they haven't YET contained Fukishima Nuclear Reactor.

That's a real worry. How much leakage is getting into the Pacific Ocean, & heading towards PNG, South Sea Islands, NZ, & of course, Australia?
and they kill whales!

Yes, brigi, for 'scientific research'! How much longer is it going to take to finish said 'research'?

Absolute @&$- & balderdash!
And yet nobody does anything significant to STOP it!

Yes i have been to Japan, 18 years ago.
It is a country worth visiting once, the major cities are unbelievable, and the long drives from one point of Japan to the next are memorable. Also the Bullet train is an experience to remember. The people are nice and the food is great and fresh.
Supermarkets are every where. Its worth the trip.
We visited Japan during a 23 night South Pacific cruise in 2004, & then again doing an Asian 14 night cruise in 20006, but you really don’t get to see much of a country on cruise ship port days!
No. Not interested. I'm very much like the Koreans and Chinese. I was very put off with Tony Rabbott telling Australians what honourable warriors the Japanese were during WW2.
I have been to Japan to Tokyo and Kyoto but that was quite some years ago.
As a family with small children we visited Disney world and around the Palace and in particular remember the big Carp in the mote around the Palace grounds.
We stayed in a Japanese guest house with the paper and matting walls and the mats on the floor. The roll up mattresses were rolled out for us to sleep on. The children loved putting on their slippers at the front door and putting on their Kimonos when entering our room and also taking a bath together.
We then travelled by bullet train to Kyoto which is a very old City. The Golden Temple is a must to see and feel the peace and calm around it.
I guess there are many hazards around the world. In my time I have lived near London and worked in London around the time of the bombings, Have lived through several typhoons whilst living in Hong Kong...our building would sway badly! Have been to Chang Mi and Spain when tourist were held up by bandits. Managed to get Typhus whilst in Malaysia which entered my brain and spine,
Been on faulty planes. Robbed in Milan Italy and the tales are there to tell! Life is to be lived...just don't go to countries where the Australian government advice you not to go at certain times.
Totally agree - I think if we avoided everything we fear we'd never do anything to enrich our lives. Travel is such an enriching experience I would encourage everybody to consider it. However, as per your suggestion, check the safety warnings about the country before travelling.

No and No. Far too many people. I hate crowds, and loud noise. Shopping can't be that good as the Japanese tourists in Singapore wipe out umbrella supplies en masse and buy big suitcases to take purchases home to Japan.
Yes, I have been to Japan 12 times since 1997. I am lucky enough to have Japanese friends who I visit quite regularly up north in Sapporo, and also friends in Kumamoto and Osaka who I regularly see. It is a beautiful country full of magnificient scenery and wonderful food. I thoroughly recommend it if any one is condering a visit...
No & no. There is nothing there that even vaguely appeals to me. And that goes for any of the Asiatic countries. Somewhere like Bali - you could give me first class tickets and put me up in the penthouse suite of the finest hotel and I still wouldn't step foot in the place.
No. I haven't been there. Not really interested in going anywhere in Asia.
Yes, on a stopover returning from the UK.
We stayed in Tokyo it was a brief stopover but what I saw made me want to return and see more of the Country and the Culture.

Yes we vised Tokyo.
The people are polite and courteous.
I think it would be better to see more names and things shown in English as it can be a nightmare getting around.
I would go back again.
