    I feel like the New Yorker's would just give you dirty looks the whole time you took pictures of shit. Tokyo I think would welcome the tourists rather than shun them.

      "Fast And Furious," are you chaffing me? Using pop culture references would not let you learn what a real life area is. That's like people watching "Frozen" to understand what Scandinavia is like.

      You got a problem with America, pal? After all, New York is one of the few Blue States of America. If you want to go on vacation somewhere in America, try Idaho, Texas, Wyoming, or Louisiana (my mother went to New Orleans and brought many souvenirs with her, including packaged crickets).

      Maybe you can fulfill that wish and succeed in language classes by getting a degree, or maybe even teaching yourself Japanese. I am teaching myself a few languages, because I do not want to go to schools that will play music or movies that would give me second thoughts on what I want to do. I made up my mind when I was taking Spanish in middle school; their music choice was awful.

    Ooh....... New York x2 Grew up in a town that is famous as a place of movie scenes Noise is always loud, there are sirens all around and the streets are mean If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere, that's what they say Seeing my face in lights or my name on marquees found down on Broadway Even if it ain't all it seems, I got a pocket full of dreams Baby, I'm from New York Concrete jungle where dreams are made of There's nothing you can't do Now you're in New York These streets will make you feel brand new Big lights will inspire you Hear it from New York, New York, New York! On the avenue, there ain't never a curfew, ladies work so hard Such a melting pot, on the corner selling rock, preachers pray to God Hail a gypsy-cab, takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge Some will sleep tonight with a hunger far more than an empty fridge I'm gonna make it by any means, I got a pocket full of dreams Baby, I'm from New York Concrete jungle where dreams are made of There's nothing you can't do Now you're in New York These streets will make you feel brand new Big lights will inspire you Hear it from New York, New York, New York! One hand in the air for the big city, Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty No place in the world that can compare Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah In New York Concrete jungle where dreams are made of There's nothing you can't do Now you're in New York These streets will make you feel brand new Big lights will inspire you Hear it from New York!

      1 year ago

      HA! Guess what? I like English subtitles, even in English-speaking languages, so I can thoroughly understand what people are saying (because sometimes in English-speaking movies, they may say something in a whisper or mumble about something, and I still can't understand them. With English subtitles, I can at least understand what they are saying.). I bet even at least one Japanese resident would want Japanese subtitles in their works, as well; besides, no matter what language, sometimes it is difficult to thoroughly understand what some people are trying to say.
