Shopping and phones in Nagoya

by 1104

I'm going on exchange in Nagoya from the 1st April. I'm thinking of buying a digital camera and a laptop over there, but would appreciate it if anyone could give some advice as to where would be best, and how much I would be looking at... Some people have also said that it might not be a great idea to get a laptop in Japan because it would be installed with a Japanese operating system etc..

Also, was wondering what to expect in terms of costs wen renting a mobile phone.. And where I could do this.

And lastly (sorry, very flustered traveller here), could anyone tell me what the situation is like in regards to ATMs? I am planning on taking my bank card (Cirrus...which I have heard will be of practically no use), and a credit card. (and cash of course.) How easy is it to find an ATM that will take my credit card, and what kinds of places accept credit cards?

Thank you!

Okay, if you offer a Visa card in some pa-and-ma shop in a tiny village in the Japanese Alps, they will probably scratch their head and politely refuse with a lot of bowing and profuse apologies, but credit cards are routinely accepted in most stores and restaurants in Japan's major cities and towns.

Using a card to withdraw cash from an ATM is more difficult, since unlike in other first-world countries not all machines in Japan are connected to the international system. ATMs which accept foreign-issued cards can generally be found in airports, mainline railway stations, major department stores and other places where foreign tourists are common.

In Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto it is certainly possible to buy laptops with English operating systems in stores specialising in taxfree electrical goods for export. Unless your Japanese is excellent, be wary of buying a laptop where all the on-screen menus pop up in Japanese. I bought a Japanese laptop a couple of years ago, but then ran into a problem with the Internet connection when I got back home. Imagine the problems I had trying to decipher the Japanese on screen while the guy at the Luxembourg P&T helpdesk was trying to talk me through the Internet set-up program!!!

Cirrus shouldn't be a problem since it can be used at post office ATMs:

(Post Office in Japan also does savings bank and limited insurance business.)

Check with Cirrus ATM locater to get some idea of how widespread available ATMs are in Nagoya.

I'm not positive about this but if you get a laptop with Windows XP Professional (and possibly Home ed. as well) I think you can change the menus to English. Of course any pre-loaded Japanese software would remain Japanese. And maybe the Windows Help System as well.

I don't know what the prices are in Australia but I would tend to think you would be better off buying at home. But if you want a large selection and the latest and greatest models, you can't beat Japan.

Thank you very much for all your help! It's all made me feel a bit more prepared for my trip. Thank you again!

Travel Tips for Nagoya

Along with the frolicking...

by Archie_Oak


Along with the frolicking youth, children and the child inside is really caressed and adored ?EI remembered the days when I spent hours and hours playing with dolls, everytime I saw kids playing and having fascinating time in children’s section in the mall. A part of section was filled with n number of toys, dolls, and many engineer brains were at work building houses, motors and robots. There was another section of books of fairy tales, fables, comics and science fiction. It was irresistible! There is a big science theater where information of the animals and their families and groups is displayed through models and photographs in Higashiyama zoo accompanied with a slide show 3 times a day.

Click the photo to enlarge
In Higashiyama zoo, looking at its widely spread area, it is difficult to believe the mis-proportion of population and land. 67% of total land area in Japan is covered with mountains and hills. Japan is over all green, during rains it looks more vibrant.

You don't hear chirping of birds except for in Parks and zoo. Somewhat resembling sound you hear on street, but that is a signal for pedestrians?End buzzing of insects that are getting out of their hibernation. In so many gardens and woods there are wood parks made for children preserving the natural landscape.

Sky Town in the airpot.

by Yujiro

When you arrive at or depart from CHUBU CENTRAIR International Airport,it is worth visiting Sky Town at the 4th floor in the airport.
There are a lots of restaurants and souvenir shops,even a public bath.
I believe that you will be able to enjoy them very much.

3 years in Nagoya. What I`ve learned...here you go

by fuzzytiger

"Nagoya People"

Nagoya is a big city of 5 million people. People dont really speak English, with the exception of Hotel and service staff, which are quite good. Toyota Motor company put this town on the map 15 years ago and this area is exploding with growth and steels factories. This is a big manufacturing town with alot of new rich people throwing their money around now, with Toyota raking in profits worldwide.
Nagoya is very much its own animal in Japan, set apart from other areas and mindset. Nagoya people are famous for being cheap and stingy with their monney, because they have never had much until recently. This area was all farm land up until just 15 years ago and is now undergoing a massive shift economically. It is the fastest growing area in Japan, with land prices rising higher than anywhere else in the country.
Nagoya people are shy and hard to get to know at first, but once you make friends, they are usually very friendly. Young people under 35 have very open minds to the west culturally and idolize western culture in many ways.
It is best to meet up with a friend when you come to Nagoya, just because the cool stuff is hidden from tourists and hard to find if you do not have a local foreign friend to hang out with and take you around.
Nagoya is not like Tokyo, Kyoto or Osaka at all...very different. You have to dig to find cool stuff here and that takes a local person to guide you around.
If you are just traveling here as a tourist, then you can easily hit the normal tourist spots. If you wanna meet and mix with the locals, that is another story. I prefer mixing with the locals myself.
