This year we start off with the anti-secrecy act in play and we can be jailed if we reveal any "secret" information... be very very quite... dey is listening...

My friend "DoubleD" is running a gaming group on Meetup.com, details below! Also big thanks to ScottPopular for arrnanging foreign friendly randbats at kick ass locations. More to come from him and his posse, but if you need some FYI/101 for the gaming scene, refer to the below!

Rules for Posting:
- Keep it clean! No unnecessary flaming.
- If you're coming to Japan for a vacation, cool! Welcome!
- If you're in this thread cuz you have a hardon for Japan but have no way of coming here, GTFO.
- If you dislike Japanese girls, GTFO.
- If you enjoy some sweet ass curry rice, welcome!

Visitors to Japan
If you have a question, feel free to ask us, but first COMPLETELY read and answer the following questions:

1. Where are you going to stay? (Tokyo is not an answer, it is just like saying New York City, L.A., London, or Hong Kong)

2. What games do you play?

3. If you are asking for budget approximations, please give detail about:
-The number of people you will be with
-Where you want to go
-How luxurious of a place you want to stay in
-What your spending needs are (ie. gifts for the family, everyday arcade, sightseeing, etc.)

Need help locating arcades? Ge-Sen.com: http://www.ge-sen.com/
Just input the name of the arcade (very specific search!!!!) and the list will pop up! This site is Google Translate friendly(ish) so try it out!

I have been organizing ThrowBack Tokyo events with my boy DD for quite some time now. Cool people and we always go low budget. Basically drinking, gaming and more drinking! We got gamer girls there too that need some female friends! So girls are welcome!

(credit to Jazz for his success in less than 2 weeks time with NO visa/job offer prior to arriving Japan)
I had wanted to go to Japan since a very young age...and in college I even minored in English and worked in my school's writing lab as a tutor for 3 years to make myself more eligible for jet and other programs ...I ended up graduating and never even getting an interview with jet and the aeon "interview" was a total fiasco...so I just got a job with the us government and worked for a while.

When my government project ended I had saved up a good bit of cash and decided to do it the hard way....I was going to go to Japan and get a job there.

I booked a flight for the day after my project ended and paid my deposit for a sakura house room...this gave me an address in Tokyo.

Now at this point, I had a lot of questions even after a little research. I got a lot of different advice from different people and I got a lot of conflicting reports from different people. Some said its easy finding a job some said chances are "slim to none." I decided I would try my luck and find out for myself.

As directed by several sources, I looked up ads on Dave's ESL cafe and ohayosensei about two weeks before I left for Japan. The long of April is a good time to search (as well as August) because they are at school semester intervals.

Note about ad hunting: many ads will say they require a variety of things. The most common are
a) must currently reside in Japan
b) must hold worker's visa
c) must have EXPERIENCE
d) tesol / tefl cert

If you are like I am/was, all you have is your bachelor's degree. In my case I have a b.s. in biology minoring in chemistry and English (which I got in 4 years :) ) this is fine...you may feel inadequate reading al these descriptions of what employers want and such but the truth is all you need is one company to tell you yes ...remember that.

It's important to find ads that claim they will sponsor your workers visa. His is of course, your true desire as it is your ticket to stay in Japan and find work freely. Once you have one, getting a job becomes much simpler, since employers want to hire someone quickly without having to sponsor someone from overseas. Getting a workers visa takes time, and as we all know in business time is money.

Anyway, look at some of these listing sites to get an idea of what you need to submit to apply. The most common items I found were as follows:

Prepare these items
A) a resume ...remember Japan is a fairly conformist society so don't make your resume stand out....focus on content rather than attractiveness. If you can make reservations at a sakura house or have a place to stay in Japan, use that address to give the employer the idea that you are acquainted with Japanese lifestyle and that you are in the country

B) cover letter
The cover letter should be concise and to the point...this is not a personal statement but a cover letter to enclose your references and resume with. Google examples if need be to get the idea

C) photo
A tasteful photo of yourself dressed nicely. ( I used college graduation photos)

D) a short list of professional references with emails and phone numbers

Once you have these tools, simply go through your ads and adjust your resumes and cover letters to address that specific job ad. Email the requested items (usually the above 4 items sometimes more sometimes less)

I emailed over 22 ads in one night and heard back from 4.... the next day! One of hose 4 gave me interviews over the next 4 days and what actually happened was I didn't get the position I applied for. However, I did so well in the interviews that the director reapplied my information for another position in the company that had JUST opened up...and I got it. 7 days later I landed in Japan and started work.

You don't need certifications you don't need hookups you don't need jet or to dive across the country for bullshit aeon "interviews."

You do need time effort and motivation...and an email account. Using these tools you can find work in Japan too!

    Hello hello, so I'll be in Kyoto until the middle of March and I'm trying to figure out where A-cho is. I know it's in Kyoto somewhere. I'm currently in the Yamasina ward. If I can just figure out which trainline to take and get off at (general area), I figure I can wing it from there. Do you have any info on that or know someone who does? I tried looking on their website but couldn't find anything. If you can help at all I would appreciate it

    I don't plan on being there much, but I may go once or twice. I don't think it's possible for me to be this close to A-cho and not go.

    We will hit up HUB for some drinks and then off to Mikado and some other random arcades out there. It would be sweet if you RSVP, but if you just want to show up... its all good.

    Man, sorry bro. I haven't been on SRK in ages. All of my SRK buds moved over to facebook, so I haven't really checked this thread since I've been here. I was just at A-cho yesterday. I live in Kyoto prefecture, but I'm pretty far from Kyoto city, so I don't get to go all the time, but whenever I'm in town (had to get my driver's license yesterday) I stop in on A-cho. Well, this is pretty much useless to you at this point, but just sorry, and yeah, I live in Japan too I guess. Actually moving to maybe Okayama at the end of the month though...

    I guess I still probably won't check here all the time. Twitter me at doragonkoroshi I guess if you want to talk?

    I had a couple of friends at Misawa that just got shipped out a few months back... not coming back anytime soon, but I will ask around the bases to see who games out there.

    When you get on shore let me know and I will have some friends show you the ropes out there... if they are still there.

    Sure thing man. Just let me know when you are in the city. I am at the arcades once or twice a week.

    Weekends are a no go for me though... I got my kids on weekends. But Friday nights are the usual time for me.

    That's where I used to live around 6 years ago. The arcade there closed down shortly after I moved away... Coincidence? Who knows if there is any kind of scene there now.

    I haven't checked this forum in a long time. Some of you might remember me... Maybe. I'm still in the Nagoya area myself. Next time I drop by Tokyo I'll check out your events there IParryu.

    Anyone get on that Ultra yet?

    Haha, I only play off and on, but wanted to play more recently cuz of Ultra. We have a lot of places with Ultra here actually. I play LOL as well, along with other stuff like Wow and Hearthstone recently.

    Hi! I'm new to the SF scene.
    Ordered SFIV AE (for PS3) from Amazon JP and am waiting for it to be delivered.
    Have been a SC (Soul Calibur) playa for 10 yrs. but wanna try a 2D game. None of the other 3D games are for me.
    As I only use Talim I can only play SCII HD Online now (Namco ain't givin Talim any love) and thought it'd be nice to play a game where I can actually find someone online any time and can find it in the arcades (I love playin in the arcades).
    I live in Chiba City and have been in Japan since '91. Am from Los Angeles and was born in 1967 (but my age stopped at 25, haha).
    I'll prac up on the game (think I'll try Juri) and post up again.

    No problem. I am the most... Experienced person in 3S, CvS2 and SF4...In fact, I'm the only one who seriously plays those games. Newcomers are always welcome.

    Always good to watch other people as well so you can practice the things that are applicable.

    Looking for people to play 3S in Fukuoka. Most of the arcades for 3S closed aside from Game Greenland and Taito Station in Tenjin, but I'm sure there's got to be at least one new spot with it since the last two years I've been absent from Fukuoka.

    Let me know. I also play SF4.

    IparryU- Ya I know about Ultra.
    If I go to an arcade I'd probably try to go to one that doesn't have Ultra (and prob one of the arcades in Aki).

    Hi all, I'll be backpacking in/around Tokyo for a month starting mid-may. I'd like to play some Ultra. Is ultra in only a few arcades? What are some good arcades to check out? I've heard of big box takadanobaba, taito hey akihabara, and club sega. Relative player skill doesn't matter to me, just looking for a fun environment to spend some days playing ultra and maybe to meet people.

    Thanks for any advice. I've been googling but all I can find re: good places to play ultra is information about location tests... But we're past that, right?

    I use only 1 chara. My choice has been made and I think it won't change, for better or worse.
    (re I used Talim only for 10 years, I have no sub chara.)
    EDIT
    I'm stubborn, haha.

    Once I get some moves down I'll hit online (but will only play with green 5 bars).

    I'm OK w/Talim, in any case I had fun (and that's what counts).

    Does anyone know where to buy arcade stick parts (sanwa) around Fussa-Tachikawa. I'm aware of the shops in Akihabara but can't make it out until this weekend and I have a mini tournament tomorrow.

    Had gamez at my house in Chiba yesterday, literally about 7 hrs of SCII HD on PS3 and 360.
    Had 3 Japanese friends come over so we were switchin off and playin the whole time.

    No 3s or drinkin here, in the interest of low on dough and already spent too much for the month ahead will sit this one out.

    Only SCII and SSFIV for me.

    Got a US Gold account on my 360.
    Will DL SSFIV AE when it's free for Gold members (next month), then will pay (about $15 I think) to upgrade to Ultra.
    So I will eventually have the PS3 (JP) and 360 (US) SSFIV Ultras.
