Hey guys, My friends and i will be traveling to japan Early in July..... I love Car's more especially Japanese imports (skylines, supras, etc...) My friends and I also love technology (cool cell phones,gadgets,music etc..) and Young Adult Nightlife....We are all in our early 20's and enjoy checking cool shops,markets,clubs, and cars....More importantly though we aren't looking for the tourist kind of feel but more of a realistic experience of japan.... The thing is that we only have 4-5 days in japan so we would like to make the best of our experience....

If anyone has been to japan and can help guide me with advice as to where is a good city to stay in with those things in mind...And maybe things to see and do would be very much appreciated... Also Does any one know where the the Top Secret Car place is in japan that would be cool to check out...Any help would be very much appreciated, Thanks Mike

Well you will find most of what you are looking for in Tokyo but within different areas so pick your hotel/hostel well - the transport system is superb so you can stay in any of the main areas and be fine.

We stayed at Shinagawa and it was excellent for getting around all the key districts/areas of Tokyo.

Kyoto and Osaka are also worth a visit but we only spent time in Kyoto (as well as 3 other places).

Okay thanks, will look into shinagawa.... So far it looks like we'll be checking out Shibuya, Akihabara, and Harajuku as well as the Tokyo Fish Market....
And would Hostels be okay for accommodation in regards to luggage and such? Anyone know of any Good Hostels in the area with reasonable prices and room size? Thanks again all the help appreciated.
