I'd love to visit either. I'm torn between the two as well. I voted Korea though, because of StarCraft

South korea all day everyday, really want to go myself
I'd be inclined to go to Korea, but only because I'm more familiar with the food and culture.
Might be offtopic, but I do want to share my thought on the matter.
Like I said, we dont care much, we dont even demand an apologise for American and Japanese war atrocities. Its the attitude that counts. (I myself tend to put the blame on particular generation, not the nation as a whole). Cant say the same if its China though, a thousand years of constant border contest and (failed) invasions taught us to always watch out for that big bad greedy bastard. Thats why I said being in the neighbourhood of Japan fueled Korea and China's hatred.
I'd pick Japan, because I'm a weeaboo person with healthy interest in Japanese culture and history.
I voted Japan, but keep in mind the local Koreans like Foreigners MUCH more than the local Japanese.
I'm not quite sure what I would like more. I find Japan more interesting culturally and historically, but I know far more about Korea, especially the Hanyang area.

Go to Japan. Despite what a lot of people are saying they aren't racist. The biggest reason for having signs up saying no foreigners is because they've had bad experiences in their establishments with them. I've been living in Japan for 4 years now, married a local, and I plan on staying here after my time in the Marines is over. Also a lot of the bigger stores, malls, and such do take credit cards. Hell even the cabs, or honchos as they call them here, have credit card machines in their cabs. Too many people are talking out of their ass in this thread.
As an English speaker, I think you'd have an easier time in South Korea than in Japan, and I think you'd be a bit more readily accepted as well. You're going to look like a tourist either way, but at least you should have an easy time of it.
