If Moore likes Europe so much, he should stay there. And don't come back!

No. She is a liar. Will do or say anything if it helps her in the end.

Posted in: What are some of the challenges that you've encountered when traveling in Japan? See in context

.... Well , lots of frustrations. I've had a great time over six trips but;

Yen travelers checks purchased in US - cannot cash in Japan banks, except at few in Tokyo! They'd never seen them, no policy, much sucking of wind through teeth. Cannot be done.

Cannot use my numerous US credit cards in many places. Waiting for Post Office to open to get cash. Post closed before I returned to town.

Where is the Wi-Fi? Had to rent a portable unit.

Rules, rules, rules and no bending of the rule for any reason (see above Yen travelers checks)

No foreigner in my taxi/restaurant, etc

Folks here feel no need or reason to learn English, although they think they are a part of the world order.

No high quality cold medicine allowed in country, need Dr's permit for other medicines --- no problem for the same situation for Japanese visiting US.

Could move to Japan, but; how to open bank account, how to get someone to sell me there empty home?? Received a credit card offer, but no, you are foreigner, cannot be done.

Name on ID (Passport, etc.) does not match local documents; romaji VS katakana VS English on documents --- rules say cannot complete the "deal" . Middle name & initial problems on documents, not matching. Paperwork is designed for Kanji names (space on paper allowed)
