    What happens if I have credit left on my Suica card that I plan to buy in Tokyo? Can I still use it in Kyoto and Osaka? Also, what about if I buy my Suica card in Tokyo, use it in Kyoto and Osaka, and still have credit left on the card before I leave Japan? Can I hand it in somewhere at Osaka Airport and get any remaining credit back in cash? Also, can I use it to buy a Shinkansen ticket from Tokyo to Kyoto and to get a regional train from Kyoto to Osaka? Lots of questions (^^)

    Hi, I just checked 100,000 Yen per day for a couple means $1119.30 Canadian. Don't you think that is too much? I wonder if you had made an error in the amount. 10,000 Yen is more realistic for a couple per day.

    Super important and how could you forget. Prepare yourself for earthquakes. Familiarize yourself of what to do if you are from an area that isn't prone to earthquakes but, if you're from California and have experienced many earthquakes such as myself, then you can take your experience with you to Japan.

    One thing that I am confused about is that the metro line that goes in a circle is Green on some images and Pink on others. It is the same line?

    Is pocket wifi better than a pre SIM card as I only have an IPhone and no iPad ?

    SIM card is cheaper so why pocket over a sim card

    Great advice about the pocket wifi!

    Starting to plan my 4 days in Tokyo. I'd like full and/or half days with a guide some of the time there. Are there particular neighborhoods more confusing than others? IE-Marunouchi and Nihombashi are quieter, so self guided would be better. However, a guide for Shinjuku and Harajuku is recommended. Thanks!

    you have almost discribed every trip i've taken to Tokyo apart from pocket wifi and my flight time ( 7hr flight 7hr stop over 7hr flight ) and time diff is almost the same as Japan for me. When i first went to Tokyo i spent ages looking at Google earth street view so i knew where i was going before i got to Tokyo, it helped alot.

    If I can give another tip. Look up some hotels near to the airport you're landing. There's a very good chance they offer a free bus-ride from the aiport to the hotel, and vice versa.
