Thank you @ Macxchange!
[emoji626]Are you a tourist in Japan? Here's how you can have free WiFi for 14 days.
I'll be there April 2 - 6, ordered wifi from Japan Wireless. I'ts kinda a that it'll be quite warm during those days, 21-23c
At first, never thought of this free wifi around Japan. I just saw this sticker-advertisements around Ginza, then I asked one of the store there, what are this free wifi and if they have a free wifi. Then she gladly gave this to me. I asked if this is free to everyone, and she said it is free for tourist and you can use it for 14days. You only need to show your passport. You just have to look for the Sticker, if the shops have those stickers, you can access the free-wifi - That's the only drawback. But its free!
We stayed there for 2 weeks. I only discovered it from the last week of our stay.
Wife and I flying out tonight for a 7-day break and will be visiting Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Tokyo. At least that's the plan.
I have to say this thread has been very helpful. I have been stalking you all for about a year here. Lol.
Go to BIlly The Kid and meet Kamen Rider Black woot!
finally flying out tomorrow for 6 day Tokyo trip.
Get a mifi/pocket wifi with enough concurrent device connection in your travel party. Turn on Airplane Mode and WiFi On so you can use your smartphone without fear of receiving calls that will be charged to you even if you do not answer. Only turn on roaming when getting sms or making emergency calls. Viber or iMessage is very useful.
I arrived last April 2 and this is my itinerary
April 3 Tokyo/Yokohama at Shin Yokohama prince Hotel
April 4 Yokohama/hakone at Hakone Yunohana Onsen

The cherry blossoms at the imperial palace and Odawara Castle are in full bloom but they're shedding the flowers like bad dandruff.
Really wish I could study here and meet a cute local. I love it here more than a my stay in the US.
Also sneaker heads I was clued in to the fact that Nike shoes are cheap daw here. I saw em being sold for under 7000 ¥ at gotemba premium outlets near Mount Fuji.

Definitely the fast pass is a must. The extra cost is so worth it. So many people at Universal Studios. Especially jam packed at Harry Potter. We would have spent most of the day waiting line which would have totally ruined my day.
I got dizzy in the Harry Potter and Space Fantasy rides. The one ride I regret not going on is the new Evangelion 4D. Should have bought a ticket.
Mind sharing the website you got tickets from?

You can only purchase online tickets through the Japanese website; just use Google Translate to navigate. One of the fields requires you to input your name in Katakana - again Google is your friend.
Hi guys question for those who bought from tax free shops outside the airport specifically Don Quijote.
I dont know what to do with this actually but I have a feeling I should show this somewhere at Narita Airport to prove that I intend to use and eat the items outside Japan.
This tax free receipt was taped at may passport so makikita ng customs dito na may ilalabas ako. Tama ba? Thinking of packing the items in my gym bag para easier inspection.
I suggest that you go to customs clearance counter first before checking in the items you bought. Less hassle on your part just in case the officer wants to see the item.
In my case I bought a watch di naman tinignan na... They will tear that away once you get pass customs. But that was at Kansai International... Baka iba sa Narita...
In Kansai there is a counter where you will present this receipt and will check if you did not open the package, this is if you bought food that you are planning to eat/bring outside of Japan. The risk is if the package is open, you will get charge with the local tax.
