This week on Wrestling Omakase we talk all about how to travel to Japan to watch pro wrestling and more! An episode so packed we had to split it in two! Fresh off their latest Japan trips John is joined by longtime returning guest Taylor as they break down everything you need to know before going yourself: how to find cheap flights (and what times of year are best for it), navigating the train system and what you need ahead of time, different accommodation options including hotels, AirBNBs, hostels and more, food and drink and what you can expect to spend on both, things to see from parks and gardens to arcades and anime stores, and more!
In Part 2 we discuss the Dragon Gate 6/6 Korakuen, Tokyo Joshi & HARD HIT from Shin Kiba on 6/8, NJPW Dominion (including a long discussion of the Naito-Ibushi controversy), NOAH in Osaka, Michinoku Pro’s Korakuen and DDT at Kyoto KBS Hall. Finally we wrap it up with a huge mailbag all about travel including questions on ALMOSTKASE, panties, where to find great ramen, how to acquire tickets to shows before you go (which we cover in detail), our favorite food and merch purchases from this trip, and more! Overall a packed edition covering everything you ever wanted to know about traveling to Japan!
