    Default E-Cigs And Japan

    Im not 100% sure but a trip to Japan May be in my 2011 line up, and from various films and conversations with friends from japan over the years. I have summed up that japan is an ex-smokers nightmare due to the fact they have analog cigs in just about every flavor you can think of cherry, blueberry etc etc etc.. well i am content with my PV but one of my buddy's stateside brought up "dude how you going to get that thing past customs it looks like a Bomb" (being a smart ... that he is, googled e-cigs and it kept bringing up pictures of a chuck ) well i don't own a chuck i have a vapor King which i hear a lot of people like the 510 just stick in a pen holder in there laptop bag

    But what i was wondering has anybody been to japan With a PV? and if so what is there stand on public Vapeing and if there was any problems with customs and cartos, and or the pv its self

    what made me super pissed off was how he initiated the conversation with " i guess your gonna have to leave your Toy at home and smoke real cigs in Japan" followed by the bomb comment"

    I was angry and to me it really hurt cause i have worked very hard staying off of regular cigs and to hear a friend of 8 years say it like that felt like he was pissing on my health and to be 100% honest i wanted to and still want to kick him in the nutz next time he comes for a visit (this friend by the way is not from japan he just lives in another state and is most likely going on the same trip. just to clear up some confusion) so i have yet to find a tangible answer

    thanks Jin Kogetsu

    PS due to the nutz comment we have had a couple of scuffles like good ol boys do in our 8 years were about as close as brothers and in a band together so we have been through alot of ups and downs so a kick in the nutz wouldn't destroy our friendship (we've been through worse) just to let you fine people know

    With you on the kick in the nutz...

    Wish I had an answer.

    I have to go to LA and St. Petersberg this Fall and I have similar fears.

    I really really don't want to light up.

    Jin, you can take it, and don't have to worry about it. Just follow the rules when putting it in your bags. More info and good tips in this thread: TSA and the Ecig FAQ

    This thread has a great card that a member did to explain her ecig in public in Japan (great to print and carry with you): Japan ecig users...

    Also, japan is a really weird, techie kinda place. I think your ecig will garner interest or they won't even notice.

    We are talking about a place that sells used panties in vending machines

    Been to Tokyo a couple of times with my Vapes, no problems at all at Narita.

    Mods can you merge the double post?

    Had no problems in Tokyo (Narita), Chitose, Sapporo, Okinawa, Iwakumi, or Hiroshima.

    You will be just fine. :-)
