    I am kind of curious if there is anyone (from singapore) who is interested in going to Japan for VF and tour.

    I think the air ticket now is around 700 sing dollars. We can play overnight at the arcade and save on hotel /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Just a thought

    I am going to Japan May,16 thru June, 6. What prefecture are you staying in or what arcades do you plan to go to? Maybe I can meet you there? I heard there is a 3 on 3 tournament early May. Anyway, hope to hear back from you.

    Hey,

    people, I really dunno exactly when or where yet. I am just looking for people. Of course, it will be nice to go at a time when there is a big competition.

    Danny, I thought Zhifeng just went to Japan...

    Chris, if you are serious about going to Japan, maybe we can worked something out. But I guess there is no rush yet. But we should go there when there is some BIG competition so we can see all the legendary people in action /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Hi!

    Hey! I am still interested in going Japan again. Last time round, I only manage to play there for like four hours out of my trip. Too LITTLE!!! And never went Tokyo. /versus/images/icons/frown.gif /versus/images/icons/frown.gif /versus/images/icons/frown.gif

    It will be a nice if we can all go together. Imagine VFing for like four or five days, plus maybe some sightseeing around if you all like. The last time I went, I saw so many japanese babes..... /versus/images/icons/smile.gif /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    ya especially all those high school girls and their ultra short skirts... funny that their schools got no rules on how long the skirts supposed to be.

    Hey, we should go in the spring/summer not in winter. Will there be any BIG competition coming up for VF4 in Japan?? Actually I read about those UK people, go Japan and STAY for soooo long. Mad. I only can afford like a week or so. Hey actually the main cost other than airfare is the lodging. Wonder anyone knows of any cheap lodging in Tokyo? The last time I stayed in Hotel in Tokyo 5 years back is around like 100 sing/per person/per night on a triple share room. Very expensive.

    Hmm, if you're thinking of heading there some time in the May/June/July time frame, for about a week... I'm definitely interested. I can ask my friend (Yusuke) if he knows of any good + cheap places to stay in Tokyo. Send me an email and we can discuss the specifics... feixaq@pobox.com /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Hey guys, I'm interested as well. But I can only make the trip if it's after graduation, post late-May. The hotel I stayed at was pretty cheap...I think it was around $80-90 for a night, though it was just myself. The hotel was in Yotsuya, Tokyu Stay Apartment, or something like that. The rooms were small as hell, but the bed is a queen and the hotel itself is quite new.

    One bad thing, however, is that they only wash towels and change sheets once a week (though when you move in you'll get a fresh set).

    hey guys,

    looks like I'm probably gonna be in Japan for the better part of a month in June, in Tokyo and Sendai.

    I'm working out the specfics right now with my boss in jap. I'll know in a couple weeks exactly what's up; and I'll let you guys know (not that you guys should plan around me at all, just nice coincidence).

    Hm.....

    Cheap lodging should be available, we need to do some research on the hotels over there. /versus/images/icons/smile.gif /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif /versus/images/icons/smile.gif But we must first decide WHEN to go???

    Hm.....

    End of the year is good but will the competition be reduced. If it won't, then count me in for your trip. /versus/images/icons/smile.gif /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    ya lor, end of year... so long.... dunno whether still got people playing VF4... I think the Japanese will get better and better with Ver C while the rest of the world without Ver C will be losing touch.

    Hm.....

    Don't worry about losing touch cos we can get together often for some VF actions. /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Hey, this website might interest you guys:

    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.newkoyo.jp/>http://www.newkoyo.jp/</a>

    The prices advertised are amazingly cheap. I have not stayed with them personally so I can't make any recommendations, but the pictures look nice and at those prices, I think most people would be more than willing forgive slightly sub-par service. /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    I have stayed at this hotel before, and i must say for the price you cant go wrong. it is very cloes to Ueno and from there akihabara is 5 mins, and shinjuku is about 25mins, and Shibuya is about 30 mins. The rooms are small and i mean small, but for the price who cares you will be out all day long and really you only need a place to sleep so it works out nice.
    The key work is CHEAP and it is in Tokyo.
    well that is my two cents
    by the way i am going to be in japan at the end of may to mid june. i will be hitting the gamecenters on june7th to june 9th. In Tokyo. cant wait!!!!

    Just thought of some cheapo tactics.... We get ONE room, squeeze in as many of us as humanely possible, then from there, we try to survive one week ? /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif My trip there last december was too uneventful. Too much parental control, and almost no freedom. (To think that I almost managed to get a girl's address too !!! /versus/images/icons/frown.gif Thank the powers that be that more and more japanese know how to speak some english...)

    Actually, if we wanna go, we should have started changing our currency to theirs while it was down and low.... a tad bit too late though... Sigh... /versus/images/icons/frown.gif
