But there are many, many good books on traveling in Japan. Go to a
local bookstore and check the travel section.
Laws? What kind of laws? Like about buying stuff? Unless you plan on
purchasing thousands of dollars of anything, there's no law that is
going to affect you. I packed all my hundreds of dollars of doujinshi
and manga and toys in my luggage and took it home. No problem. If
something is very large or heavy, you can ship it home.
Other than that, what kinds of laws are you concerned with? Are you
planning on murdering someone? :-)
A good place to begin is your local library - the librarians there can
help you find books about travel to and around Japan.

I may as well get out some fiction while I'm there. :D

In Japan, if you conduct yourself like a polite member of society, you will
still be considered a foreigner and tourist, but a well-trained one. Aim for
that and you'll be fine.
And use the word "sumimasen" alot.
>Weird law, but I heard it's a very cleanGet a travel book - it'll help.
