So I picked this card up at the Pokemon Center in Tokyo a few weeks ago, and I've been trying to translate it. It's a Pokemon TCG card and, while I no longer play the game, it would be neat to be able to show it off XD However, I don't know what one of its abilities say. Here's the text:

I'm currently on holiday in Japan and it's great. One thing I've noticed is there loads of strange stuff you can buy here. My friend suggested that I should buy some Japanese goods whilst I'm here and sell them for a profit when I return to the UK if I'm clever. Unfortunately I know...

LavaBug and I have talked about modding a little bit and have noticed something:

So, I want to buy an electronic dictionary. I got a bunch of brochures and my sensei is going to help me pick one out, but does anyone know any good spots in Tokyo where they sell them for decent prices? I went to Bic Camera in Kyoto and it was uber expensive, and I presume Bic Camera is a chain...
OK, so I'm in Japan atm and I want to buy a Kanji DS game. As a native Canadian and purebred 白人 (I seem to remember that's derogatory, but I'm prefacing what I'm about to say by saying I'm ignorant), I don't know Kanji (not entirely true...I can read about 200 by meaning and about 80 by sound), so...

With the ~なさい form, is there a way to make it negative?
For example if I wanted to say something like "Don`t do that" is to say something like "Don`t do that" is that even possible with ~なさい？
Is, for example, ないなさい possible?

"Kouki Yori" - ｢より。こうき」

So, I'm going to Japan in about a week and a half (12 days and counting!), and I was wondering if there was anything I should know before I go there. I've taken 4 language classes at my University, so my grammar is probably at maybe a grade 2 (Japanese native) level, and my vocabulary (which I...
