Most of Tokyo's religious buildings that are worth seeing, including the Hie shrine of Kyoto's tutelary goddess, many times rebuilt, and the Gokokuji Temple with a statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy are also located -in the middle of stretches of green. The temple and the "scarlet Pagoda" of Asakura are also dedicated to the same goddess.

For larger purchases there are multistory super gigantic shopping centers under most of the stations. The most popular shopping  zone is as always the famous Ginza its department store palaces and but also theaters and Bookworms can rum through more than a hundred bookstores in the Kanda distict. And in the district of Aki-habara tiny shops and technical markets overflow with entertainment electronics and computer goods.

Prostitution in Japan
At a street corner, a young girl around the age of seventeen, dressed in a navy blue school uniform and white socks, stands looking vacantly into the street. After a few minutes a middle-aged man approaches the girl and offers to take her out to an expensive dinner; in addition, he offers her a satisfying amount of pocket money. With a shy, quivering glance and a sweet smile the girl graciously takes the manís arm. On the corner of areas like Shibuya, a central Tokyo entertainment district, popular with Tokyoís younger generation the scenario described has become a common and casual rendezvous (Moffett, "Little Women" 48). Japan, a country with the second strongest economy and highest academic standing in the world, is facing a major problem with a wide-spreading and popular after-school activity of its young female students. An increasing number of Japanese schoolgirls are soliciting their bodies for entertainment and extra "pocket" money in a society that is setting extremely high prices for them.
The number of teenage prostitutes began to climb around 1974. By 1984 the number reached alarming levels and is still increasing (Morrison 3). National Police Agency statistics for 1995 show that 5,841 female minors were involved in telephone club liaisons or other sex-related activities. One quarter of these girls were still in junior high school. There was a 16.2 percent increase from previous years (Schreiber 86). The Tokyo Metropolitan Government survey of 110 schools in 1996 found that 4 percent of high-school girls, and 3.8 percent from junior high, had acted as paid escorts (Moffett, "little Women" 50).
Teen prostitution is not shocking news that Japan has just witnessed for the first time. But during recent years, the spectacle of teenage schoolgirls selling their bodies to purchase designer clothes is making many Japanese uneasy. Currently, Tokyo Metropolitan Government is taking the steps to curb the acts when adults pay for sex with children under eighteen. Laws to punish those who solicit prostitution with teenagers are being decided upon. But laws simply against teen prostitution may not be enough. Many of the young prostitutes are willingly marketing their bodies, most of them operating on their own. They understand what they are doing and indicate that they see nothing wrong with having sex for money.

The problem is not only that the obsessed Japanese men are seeking out young companions but also the schoolgirls in uniform are enthusiastically seeking out their male patrons. In order to ameliorate the problem, the society will need to attack the root of the problem, working with and educating students to prevent further young girls from being involved in prostitution, helping to reform those who are, and, also taking actions against the promoters and "trafficker" of Japanís sex-industry. Failure to act accordingly may eventually result in an increasing degeneration of morals and ethics in its young female generation

Japanese Restaurants very rarely offer an English or romanized menu. The major exceptions are the restaurants located in large international hotels, but they tend to be rather expensive, and also they close very early - usually at 21:00. So until I have collected more Japanese restaurants with an English menu (or you have learned to read a Japanese menu), please try the few that are already here, or go and enjoy Japanese food with Japanese friends or business associates.

Tokyo has many different neighborhoods or districts in which to party. PubClub's local party guide recommended Roppongi. It's friendly to Westerners, known as "gaijin." Many transplants from the US and Europe work there. It's where the Hard Cafe Tokyo is located, and better still (for girls) has Tokyo's newest high-end mall, Roppongi Hills. And guys, it's crammed full of young, well-groomed Japanese women. It also has a some very nice restaurants with bars that serve real Western-style food.

Cash and travelers cheques can be exchanged in banks, post offices and currency exchange bureaux. Banks are usually open Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm. Travelers cheques offer the best exchange rate and are best taken in US dollars.

Communications: The international access code for Japan is +81. The outgoing code depends on what network is used to dial out on (e.g. 001 for KDDI) followed by the relevant country code (e.g. 0011 for the United States).

Telephone cards are sold at kiosks and from vending machines.

Internet cafes are widely available.
