    Be careful of those hotel room refrigerators.

    When you remove a bottle from its slot within the fridge a cost is registered automatically whether you consume the contents or not.

    A work colleague got a bill for nearly $200.00 because he inspected the fridge contents.

    Tokyo is also an amazing city with many little fantastic and relatively cheap back street eateries. And the whole city works like a Swiss watch.

    Enjoy your trip.

    Could get a bit exciting if the watch was purchased in Nana

    It's an issue for foreigners too, unfortunately. You'll find the odd one that's willing to go a bit easier, but in the experience of a friend the customers were also kicking up a fuss.

    It is a little known fact that the Japanese emperor Meiji got the idea for the imperial flag of Japan from a Tunnocks Teacake wrapper while on a state visit to Britain in 1870.

    I'll have a look at the BLD thread...his digs would be out of our budget, maybe.
    on the contrary. i found japan to be cheaper than a trip to oz. all my accomadation avereraged out at about $100 a night except tokyo where i pretended to be s landreth and spent $250 a night. if your travelling around buy the railpass it will save you a fortune.

    The thread i done was called amongst the kimchi eaters ( went to korea first)

    This looks worth a visit

    Aokigahara[at](青木ヶ原), also known as the[at]Sea of Trees[at](樹海[at]Jukai), is a[at]forest[at]on the northwestern flank of Japan's[at]Mount Fuji[at]thriving on 30 square kilometres (12[at]sq[at]mi) of[at]hardened lava[at]laid down by the last major eruption of Mount Fuji in 864 CE.[1][at]The western edge of Aokigahara, where there are several caves that fill with ice in winter, is a popular destination for tourists and school trips. Parts of Aokigahara are very dense, and the porous lava absorbs sound, helping to provide visitors with a sense of solitude.[2]
    Just dont tell the Thai wife its one of the worlds biggest suicide sites full of roaming Yurei(ghosts)

    i'd second kamakura if you are in the kanto, really you could spend a week in Tokyo and not get bored
    Kobe is great (prefer it to Osaka) Kyoto is stunning
    youll see plenty of those Japanese imperial nay flags on the black vans of Japanese fascists driving around the streets playing patriotic music
    also if you go to kamakura, carry on to enoshima, in jube there will be all the shonan surfer girls, who dont actually surf but look great
    we won it at wemberlee
    we on it in gay paree...

    Divided by a common language.
