There was a camera shop in Iwaki, Fukushima, I used to admire to old camera's in it, I collect cameras.

The owner would always tell me that they were broken, or not for sale, even though they had price tags on them.

I found this attitude in a few shops in Japan. I was wearing a suit and taking a lunch break from work.

Yeah, but you don't get the 'joy' of living in Japan though, do you Ken.

18 months of €150 per month bills was enough 'joy' thanks:)

Are flights within Japan so expensive that they are prohibitive?

I have just returned from a week in southern Portugal (Faro) to Ireland (Dublin). Roughly 1,850 Kms each way.

The price? ¥13,229, €90, return, booked 2 weeks in advance.

Flight time was 2.5 hours each way. As opposed to 14 hours on a bus, No thanks.
