Bertiewooster, there are US bases in Okinawa because Japan tried to take over the world. The US stopped them in WWII and ended up taking over and by keeping bases in Okinawa it allows the US manage the balance of power and keep an eye on China and NK.

Strangerland it depends on what you look like. I'm guessing SE Asians and dark people have very different reactions from immigration officers to those from western countries. Same thing probably happens everywhere I'd assume.

Some things are definitely high tech however they still use too much cash, DVDS, fax machines and have not yet automated McDonalds. Ganbare Japan I am a foreigner and I am not shocked that robots are working as staff. I am shocked that Japan still uses cash! Who uses cash anymore?

Stormcrow how about this: carry a photocopy of the important information in your passport and leave your passport in the hotel safe :)
Wakarimasen you are right. I don't know why they are talking about passports so much.

Commanteer, have you ever been to Japan? Are you aware of how much crime there is in Japan?

Stormcrow I'm pretty sure most people don't carry their passports on them when they travel abroad (depending on the country). Do you want to get robbed and lose your passport or keep it in your hotel safe?

I'm looking forward to the hottest olympics in history. Maybe even a real marathon when the winner dies of heat exhaustion.

Why is everything based on the Olympics? Nobody will care and they will forget Tokyo had the Olympics, much like all of you forgot every previous olympics. Does anyone remember the London Olympics or even care anymore? The same thing will happen in 2020.
