Tattoo shop in Kyoto 2010/9/28 02:13
I am going to Japan next week and would like to get a tattoo while I am there. Could you please give me the name of a good Tattoo Shop in Kyoto. Also, do you know if I have to make an appointment a few days in advance or will they tattoo on the spot?

Japan generally looks down on tattoos as they have been historically associated with the Japanese mafia. Some public places, such as hot springs, will not admit people with tattoos. Would not recommend it anyway.

This is not necessarily my opinion, just Japanese culture.
