Just purchased some tickets to Japan for three weeks late Oct/early November. It was the recent Jetstar special and ended up around $500 return each, probably good to remember whenever advertised ticket prices are cheap ($405) there are often booking fees and baggage fees on top of that. So far we are looking at doing Tokyo > Hakone (for one night at a nice ryokan with onsen) > Osaka > Hiroshima > Kyoto > Back to Tokyo to fly out. Any comment on if it might be worth heading down to Fukuoka for a day or two or that would be trying to do a bit too much? Also are there any typically slow days at Universal in Osaka or just avoid the weekends? I remember discussion about credit cards that don't have exchange rate fees or something similar. What are the go to methods of bringing a decent amount of money without having it all in cash? Can anyone advise on options for short term phone/data sim's for internet access and maps etc or a wireless hotspot for the same purpose?
