    the only people who can't survive are people who got no money + lazy to work...

    Just everyday point picture, pay money, eat, and enjoy...

    There's a nice place to go when one's at Shinjuku.

    Its a nice warm and fuzzy place of loving comfort called "Kabukicho", learn this phrase well.

    "Watashi, nihonjin dewa arimasen. Demo, watashi okane ippai aru desu. Onna arimasuka?"

    I did... Knowing Chinese helps a great deal with transport and food... and the rule of thumb for getting around beyond that is SMILE

    Oh yes, I meant recognising the Chinese characters The subway definitely is a challenge to understand at the beginning, but it's very logical system actually... Shld get a hang of it as long as you plan your route well ahead...

    I think you won't have a problem with their subway. If i remember correctly, they do have signs in English. My colleagues told me that prior to the soccer world cup in 2002, the entire signboards in the subway were changed to display English names as well.

    Most hotels (at least the business hotels) have English speaking staff. You can always ask them for directions. For food, usually "point and click" method works fine - unless you have any dietary preferences.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    It's not some sleazy place like Geylang, it's far far far better than what you are thinking if you are asking this question.
