There are many Japanese cars that is not avaiable in the rest of the world, specially in the US. If you wanted to imprt them to the US, you are not allowed to do so unless car is over 25 years old.
One of the most popular cars that people now starting to import from Japan is NISSAN GT-R 1992 or older.

One opf the best way to enjoy Onsen (Hot Springs) on the budget is gop on the day trip. This onsen in Kyoto offers Onsen and Lunch for 2,000yen (Under $18.00). What a great deal.

If you have a chance, try traditional Japanese restaurant called Ryotei.
料亭: A ryōtei (料亭) is a type of luxurious traditional Japanese restaurant. Traditionally they only accept new customers by referral and feature entertainment by geisha, but in modern times this is not always the case. Ryōtei are typically a place where high-level business or political meetings can take place discreetly.
This branch looks like a word HITO in Japanese.
Doesn't it look like person walking?
You shpuld not refrain from eating on the local trains. But when it comes to long distance train, you are allowed to eat at your seat. The rule of thumb is that if there is a table, you can eat your bento. If there is no atble, look around and see aif anyone is eating.
For the price, this is absolutely the best tempura lunch you can get in Japan. The place is called MAKINO and their main store is in Osaka. You got to try this.
Private Cabs have Better Cars.
Some of you already know there is no UBER or Lyft in Japan. All taxi cabs are licsed and issued a green licenseplate. Any taxi operating without taxi cabs license are called Shiro-Taku (White Taxi). It does not mean the car are white, but the lucence plates have white backgroung.
I usually choose white clolored taxi cabs. Because they are operated by individiuals not taxi companies. The cars are newer, cleaner and better service. Next time when you look for taxi, try white cabs. The prices are the same, so why not ry the better cabs.
I just came back from Japan. I have taken many pictures and video in Japan. I will share them with you soon. Today, I am little tired ... So let me leave you with the picture of Bento selling for 380 yen or $3.40.
