RE: The Asian Travel Guide to Asia
I got a pm from pman on whether Roppongi or Shibuya is better to set up base as an Asian foreigner visiting Tokyo but I thought this might be useful for everyone so I putting my reply here instead.

For starters, putting aside game or race, I would always go for Shibuya for lodging. Reason being Shibuya is connected to way more subway lines than Roppongi including the main JR Yamanote line which Roppongi doesn't run through. Whether it be travelling around Tokyo for sightseeing or just planning date locations, its always better to go with the station with more connections to reduce travelling time and cost.

As for Ageha, if you're going to game girls, I would say forget it. Unless you have a really solid crew to roll with(think Irish's BGM in Bangkok and Manila level) with the payrolls to go with, you going into one of Japan's biggest and most established clubs as a visiting foreigner will land you as much poon as luck would have it on that day and we aren't men who put our fates into pure luck are we?

My point being, unless you have solid club game with a equally good crew to row with, you might want to leave Ageha alittle down on your list if you're looking to get your Japanese flag. If you can't pull in the hottest club in your city, you can't pull in Ageha. Save your yen for something else.

You didn't mentioned if you're a nightgame guy but unfortunately Japan has changed quite abit since I was there last August. Feria is apparently closed and the crowd has moved on. I am going back to Japan for a vacation end June so it would have to wait till then before I can report back on the new top nightspots. As for now, maybe the rest of RVF in Japan can help out abit.

My last point on why you should get an apartment in Shibuya is purely based on game in Japan as an Asian foreigner. As mentioned earlier, Roppongi isn't the best place for Asians since girls who head to Roppongi are primarily interested in white or black men. Basically anyone that doesn't look like a conventional Japanese man. They can get that everywhere else in Tokyo.

Shibuya on the other hand has a mixture of both Japanese and foreigners who take selfies at Shibuya crossing (sigh) so the girls in Shibuya are not specifically looking for a foreigner boyfriend. Meeting you could then be attributed to fate, luck or whatever they want to tell their colleagues when they gossip about you during lunch break. The plausible denial is established.

Here is what I would suggest you could do on a Friday night based on my year of living in Tokyo. Note that this is a suggested activity list for the night and you can bounce back to your place anytime if you get a girl (also because you just live right in the Shibuya neighbourhoodBanana)

6pm:
Head over to the HUB beside the Starbucks and get a few beers in your system. You can number close the few office ladies getting drinks after work or the early birds of the Friday party crowd

7pm:
Check out some of the international parties held that night, Shibuya is a popular venue on most weekends. This is the easiest place to get laid for a visiting foreigner with no time to build a social circle or have a crew to row with to the clubs

9pm:
At this point you could either head over to Ageha or the other clubs or choose to hang out at the bars

Go early to either, it becomes a cockfest after 11pm.

Alternatively, if you picked up a chick at the international party and she needs to warm up to you before she goes back to your apartment with you, now's a good time to do a few location swap with the many bars found in Shibuya. Just bounce quickly and suggest heading back to your place to see photos etc.


That would be my bread and butter for gaming in Shibuya on a Friday night. Shibuya was my preferred choice when I was living in Japan and also where I have booked my Airbnb for my upcoming trip in end June.
