You know that would be a good idea for a website.

I guess you can call it IRL-Shenmue.com

You can take pictures of real shenmue spots and have adventures.

To tell the the truth since I went to Yokoska and then playing shenmue 1 I found it boring because I was actually in the same real place =/ I did not feel as magical as before. Now I want to go to Shenmue 2 Locations :) .

I spend 2 weeks in Japan and It was really a great life experience I will go there Again.I went to Nikko,Kyoto,Osaka,Tokyo(Yokoska is near Tokyo),Kobe,Fuji mount Area.
So if anyone is planning to go to Japan can ask me for tips on How to save money. ;)
Whole trip cost me only $3400 USD.
I advice if you going to japan stay in a small cheap room because I guarantee you you will spend more time outside than inside in a boring room. the room I stayed cost 50$ USD a night in Osaka.Tokyo was a little more expensive 75$.
If you a extreme shenmue fan there is a hotel in Yokoska but I dunno how it cost I only spend 1 day in Yokoska.

Cool, good luck with that. I'm planning to go to Hong Kong and Kowloon. Saved up aprox £1500 for it so far.

Sadly you can't go to Kowloon it does not exist anymore :( .I think it was Kiyuu that posted about that.
We can only have Kowloon in our mind but thanks to Yu we manage to experience it :).I want to go to Gui ling cave and look for Ryo's bones and take them as suvenier LOL :lol:

The Walled City was demolished but there's a park area where the City stood called The Walled City Park (link). Definately visit that place. Not like I'd dare go into the Walled City in the first place, imagine what it would be like if it still stood.

Yes, the Kowloon Walled City was demolished in the early 90's but you can still visit Kowloon. It is an urban part of Hong Kong.

Actually, if you are interested in the Walled City, I highly recommend buying City of Darkness - Life in Kowloon City (http://www.amazon.com/City-Darkness-Life-Kowloon/dp/1873200137). It has some great pictures of the city at has some great personal stories of the people that lived there. It wasn't that bad of a place to live actually. Yes, there were drug addicts at one point but for the most part it was a very safe place to live. It was a very close community. I wish I had the chance to visit. Seriously, pick up the book. It is very well done.[/url]
