I'm a weeb too, but I'm not really interested in buying gunpla or figurines or whatever so I've never really considered going to Japan just because of this one hobby. But it was quite unexpected for me that Japs' every day lives really are so close to stuff that happens some SoL anime. For instance, I've never thought they actually do wear traditional clothes on festivals, I believed it was just used for zest and moe points in muh animes. Plus according to the >>572
the country itself is also quite interesting, and that's pretty cool too.
