For Japan Travelers

Because most of our members' homes are typical
Japanese size, we are not able to really offer visiting
Mensans "SIGHT" in the way of accomodations.
But we can offer information for your stay.

Below, you will be roughing it. You'll have to ask if the
room has a phone, and what time the heat comes on.
