They market fast food in Japan as being what Americans eat for Christmas dinner. A particularly ignorant Japanese person might think Americans have KFC on thanksgiving.

In Buenos Aires you can get amazing food for 1/3 of average US prices. A fantastic Italian restaurant can cost somewhere in the $9-13 region, that includes appetizer and alcohol. Plus you can have almost any kind of food delivered to your door for about half or a third of what a restaurant charges. I took 6 people out to dinner in a tourist area (read: overcharge) and the bill was like $47 with tip. Crazy. A regional food called empanadas cost anywhere from $1-3 here in SoFla, but you can get they for like $.25 in Argentina. Jon.

Well, a Big Mac will never be good, regardless where in the world you go or how much you pay. Jon.

seems taking a holiday to Hawaii or S. Korea is a cheaper alternative to getting LV etc than buying in Japan
My wife and I honeymooned in Hawaii, and spent a few days on Oahu. We noticed that there were many, many Japanese weddings taking place (every time we turned around, there was a bride getting into a limo, a bride getting out of a limo, wedding pictures being taken, etc.). My wife asked our concierge about this, and she was told that Oahu was sort of like the Japanese Las Vegas when it comes to weddings. Apparently, it's cheaper to take a plane from Japan to Hawaii and have a wedding than it is to have a wedding in Japan. We were told that the same was true for golf, so there were many Japanese tourists in Oahu on golf vacations.

KFC in Japan costs something like $7-8 bucks for a combo meal. I can probably feed my whole family for $30 at KFC in Tokyo, and my kids eat a LOT. McDonalds in Japan is significantly better than McDonalds in the US. Make no mistake-it's still a fast food burger, but it is way better than what they serve in many US fast food chains these days. Personally, I think you can potentially put together a better meal in the under-750-yen category from convenience foods at a FamilyMart or 7-11, but then you have to find a place to sit down and eat it, which is not always feasible. Other cheap and tasty options, like oden or ramen from a yatai, tachiguisoba, etc., don't really work for families.

the best thing about McDs or any other fast food in Tokyo is that there are some which are located on a higher floor of a building so you can get a pretty awesome view while washing down a McRoyale w/cheese. i remember eating at a McDs in Ikebukuro that was about 5 floors up at a busy corner in a shopping district that provided a great view to people watch down below. personally, i liked Lotteria the best for fast food.

Mos Burger is pretty good for fast food. Had that quite a bit while visiting my friend last summer (he lived a block from one heh). m

I'm here. The flights were not as bad as I thought they might be; the second leg (Honolulu-Narita) was rather empty so I stretched out across the middle 4 seats on the 747 and slept a few hours. After about 32 hours awake, it was much needed. We had a couple of little detours on our way from the station to the hotel, but we made it intact. It's kind of industrial, but it's not bad at all. I already got a bunch of video that I will edit and post somewhere when I get back. I plan to get much more and I'll get a memory card for my videocamera so I can take stills too. I neglected to bring the cable for it so I don't know if I will be able to post any from here. Now to find the clothing shops. This place is pretty confusing, but I think we'll get the hang of it today. My first mission today is to buy a compass. I'll be checking back online regularly.
