Amazing People Even though we’re used to fairly nice people we couldn’t help but notice how very nice and respectful the people in Japan were! The City of Tokyo, Japan The city is very clean, even with almost no trash cans on the street. It was also extremely quiet for such a huge city. Making Friends and Picking Up Girls Our new friend Yukari Peerless helped us make friends wherever we went. Whether it was me grabbing photos with high-fashion girls or John picking up girls, the people were great! Some Unique Food John was a little worried about the food before we went, but we both found some fantastic stuff. I ate crab brains! (He didn’t.) Unexpected Tech Experiences Seeing tech in Japan was an interesting (and surprising) experience. They’re not really influenced by the outside world – everyone had a flip phone! 6 Responses Dana Schwartz February 26, 2012 FYI, my iTunes subscription just got an episode entitled “Experiencing Tokyo, Japan” but it actually turned out to be the Electric cars review again. Peter Krause March 1, 2012 Yes me too, I was looking forward to this episode but got the Chevy Volt review again from iTunes J.P. February 27, 2012 Long but awesome episode! I’ve traveled the world for the past 26 years and honestly eaten and drank my way across every continent (except Antarctica) and bunches of countries, including Japan. Food definitely fuels some amazing social interaction and learning when you’re visiting a new place. It’s so awesome that you were willing to try so much of the local cuisine! Can’t wait to see & hear more about the tech that drew you there. Thanks! Godashram February 29, 2012 I was in tokyo 2 years ago and it was amazing. My wife was very picky about food, so we did have the occasional mc donald’s, but noticed the meat to be more flavorful and juicy! epic win! Also, Big Boy was way different, but still awesome. Also, Akibahara was Epically AWESOME, and I spent way too much there! Rick March 2, 2012 John goes all the way to Japan and has a big mac. Too funny. William March 4, 2012 Wow! you guys must have been blind – I live in Tokyo and I assure you a lot of people have smartphones here.
