Orchid Plaza: Abbott Street.
ORCHID PLAZA is probably the heart of the Japanese community living and passing through Cairns. Positioned on Abbott Street near the casino, this shopping mall is riddled with Japanese restaurants (sushi, ramen, the works), Japanese travel agencies like HIS, and beauty salons where Japanese girls struggle to train the hair of their Aboriginal customers. Off-duty massage therapists sit around the small food court downstairs, slurping cold drinks. If you want to get your daygame on, there is no better place in the Wet Tropics, than Orchid Plaza.
Also on Abbott Street can be found an omiyage suupaamaaketto (souvenir shop), and further on, a Louis Vuitton store (always a magnet for beautiful and fashionable Japanese women!) I should at this point clear up concern which some Australians might have, and that is... how to you tell the difference between Japanese people and other East Asians? It is not as easy as you might think... even Japanese have trouble identifying their country(wo)men abroad. That said, I find that Koreans quite often have round, moon-shaped faces, while Japanese faces are more angular. They kind of have triangular sideburns, and quite often, cute protruding elf ears. Their noses are more triangular too. The biggest giveaway, however, is the clothes that Japanese folk wear. Japan is lightyears ahead of the rest of Asia in fashion sense and Japanese women look like they are dressed for a date, every day of the year. For some particular reason Japanese women also love Australian Ugg boots although they are unlikely to be wearing them in Queensland's tropical heat. They like bicycles, and koalas, and crepes.. Furthermore, if you ever get intimate enough with a Japanese girl, look closely at her shoulders. Practically every Japanese that I have ever met has small dimples on either arm from the injections they got as kids at school.
Night Market: The Esplanade.
IT MIGHT go without saying, but the Night Market which adjoins the Asian food court on the Esplanade is a perfect place to meet Asian women. Markets are to Asians, what pubs and clubs are to us Westerners. They are a place to hang out, try delicious street food, meet new people. In fact, any Asian restaurant or supermarket is a magnet, that is true, but in the Night Market will you will find the greatest concentration of targets.. Each evening it is crammed with souvenir hunters, planeloads of Chinese tourists haggling over didgeridoos, or picking up a pair of thongs.. Get your game on, and you can't go wrong.
Do Your Research: The Power of Intelligence.
BETWEEN MY first and second visits to Cairns, I got to know the city online. I did my recon, in other words. Looking at Google Streetview, I located a Japanese restaurant at what the computer says is 34 Lake Street. Across the road, there rose a Filipino cafe and restaurant (Jambo Mi Amigo) with a sushi place next door promising cold drinks from AUS$1.60. And right next to that is a place called Dondoko and Seoul Express. I figured: All would be great places to meet Japanese women on working holidays! , there is a Korean supermarket called Damoa Mart (or something like that), with pictures of dancing ginseng roots on the shopfront. I fell in love with Korean supermarkets when I was living in Tokyo, so perhaps I could hit up this place as well, when I am cruising in Cairns next time!
These days, there are so many tools... , white guys could be seen with their Japanese girlfriends. On the Esplanade, Murri families wait for the bus in front of Cairns Base Hospital. Bats hang from the tropical trees. on Lake Street... Japanese working holiday makers can be found working at tourist facilities around the city. For example, the ferry where cruise ships depart for green island and the reefs, and the strange rainforest dome on top of the casino. There were someth, thousandsen IN MY original booking I was supposed to stop in Coolangatta on the way home; with this new booking I would be transiting at Cairns instead, which excited me, since I had never visited the city before. It was only supposed to be an hour long layover or something, so I wouldn't be able to see anything anyway, but whatever... I'll take what I can get. As it was, the Tohoku disaster necessitated a change to the flight schedule: since Jetstar didn't want their staff sleeping overnight at Narita (Tokyo's airport), we had to fly over to Osaka to drop off one of their crews. I got to Narita about nine hours ahead of departure time, such was my haste. before I was due to board my plane, , The tables were spinning around as if the floor was made of jelly; it was a Magne Aussie kids in the bar, looking kind of pd. A few minutes . ...
USE SOCIAL media like Twitter and Facebook. Trends Map shows you what people are currently talking about anywhere in the world, including Cairns (or Townsville, or Port Douglas for that matter.) The day that I last checked up (August 13 2011) everyone was talking about timeOUT Day In The Park (#timeoutditc festival. A pity I was a week too early. Anyway, that's what people in Cairns are talking about today; to see what people are saying about Cairns, Twitter Search is your tool. I might have been out of ti new possibility: the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair starting August 19,.
Still, Japanese are conspicuous by the heavy clothes they wear even on the hottest day.These days there are a lot of Chinese and Korean tourists heading to Cairns and to the novice, it can be hard telling them apart, especially since Korean and Japanese sounds a little same (the same rythym, in my opinion). However, there are a few giveaways. If you have a chance, look closely at the shoulders... practically every Japanese I have ever seen has small dimples injections they got as kids at school. For some particular reason Japanese women love Australian ugg boots to be wearing them in Queensland's tropical heat. Still, Japanese are conspicuous by the heavy clothes they wear even on the hottest day. Accommodation in Cairns for AUS$130 per week!.

Anata wa Nihonjin desu ka? The Night Market, and Orchid Plaza.
If you walk around Cairns (particularly the area around the Japanese restaurants above the Blue Sky Brewery, for example) you can see oldstyle bulletin boards with signs written totally in Japanese. If you can read Japanese, these can provide some valuable intell. This month's exhibtion is by fvarious ..."
Go to Church: Not as crazy as it sounds.
IF YOU really want to go "hard native" in a place, get to know its soul as they say, then joining church. When I finally reach Cairns again on my way to Papua New Guinea, I want to go deep cover at one of the city's Papuan churches.
