Just out of curiosity how far does the American dollar go over there. Basicly what's the current charge for suckie suckie.
It varies on what you are trying to buy and where you are trying to buy it.
It all depends on where you are. In Tokyo, everything is fuckin' expensive. A real POS apartment, in a shitty neighborhood, starts at about $1000. That same money will buy you a pretty nice (and larger) apartment if you go about 40 miles south of Tokyo. But "larger" is a relative term. My wife's old apartment was smaller than the Master Bedroom of our house.
Generally speaking, things are going to be more expensive. The Japanese have similar prices on things like food but they are always in much smaller portions. Transportation is relatively cheap if you use public transportation. Unlike public transport in the US, you can literally get ANYWHERE in Japan by train or bus and it is normally faster than using a car (unless you are Jeremy Clarkson in a Nissan GT-R). Owning a car in Japan is fuckin expensive.
Anything that is imported into Japan is really friggin expensive. Raw materials are expensive unless they come from recycled materials (like Paper and plastics). I had to give up on my woodworking hobbies while I was in Japan because lumber was so damn expensive.
Exchange rates right now favor the Yen. 100 Yen is almost exactly 1 dollar. It hasn't been that way for over a decade. Back in the 1980s the Yen was worth less than half as much as it is now. This is one of the reasons their exports are being kicked in the gnads right now.
But on the subject of suckie suckie. I really don't know but again it depends on where you go and who you do.
