    If you're in Japan and don't train Judo, you're insane.

    The Kodokan is notable for being extra-friendly towards foreigners and foreign beginners. College based clubs and such have a reputation of putting you through the grinder.

    Get a white judo gi if you do go there - that's all you're supposed to wear there.

    Hey, nobody's mentioned the deadly stand up art of Aikido (Bujinkan in dresses)......just kidding, go for the Karate (choose a style cause there's a crapload of em), I'm sure it would be much better than what most of us have access to here.

    I should also mention that I'll be in Nagoya. Maybe someone has some knowledge of or experience with a school or schools there?

    You're in Japan, do Judo or go home.

    If you're there for work ask around the office and find out who does Judo, guranteed someone does, or if there's a company Judo team, most corporations have one. Then use that as a way one, personal introductions are a big thing in Japan.

    If you can get a Japanese co-worker to take you along to his machi(local) dojo to train then you'll be made welcome. Make sure you wear a white gi with as few patches and stuff on it as possible are polite and keep an open mind.

    You probably won't be able to walk into a University or Police dojo, the best ones, the University will probably not have time for you as a beginner and the police won't let you as a civilian and a foreigner.

    Be prepared that in Japan people teach very differently than in the West, there's not an awful lot of actual instruction and a lot of learning through osmosis, but if you have a 'sponsor' with you then you'll get more attention and be looked after.

    Bottom line is Japan = Judo.
