    Anyone back from Tokyo / Hokkaido recently?

    I miss Japan, but the radiation issue is still bothering me.. hoping to return in 2015 before they close Tsukiji and go to Hokkaido too...

    was there in Aug 2010, and tokyo was really hot, reaching 35deg, but luckily I was in Hokkaido, which was really pleasant in summer. Spent only 2 days in tokyo (since gotta fly back from tokyo) and really sweltering...

    thanks, i had the same concerns too, i heard from many friends who got sick from the summer heat, got one lady friend end up on wheelchair help during her return flight, i guess the heat is very different from our Singapore weather.

    The lower yen makes Japan an attractive place to visit...

    Hi all,

    I am not too sure if this is the correct kind to pose my question. Hope you will be kind to me. I am going to Japan next month via SQ flight (cabin luggage dimension max. 115cm). I am thinking of bringing along ThinkTank Urban Disguise 40 along with Sirui N-1004 tripod (440mm height folded). Based on your experience, will it be possible to bring these 2 as carry/cabin? The reason is I am trying to have spare space on my lugguage to bring back gifts.

    Hope for your input. Thank you in advance.

    I would seriously reconsider japan in july aug. Not just the heat upto 38C but the humidity then can b worst/higher than sg.

    anyone know the operating hours of the midori-no-madaguchi in KIX?

    i might be arriving pretty late and thinking of sleeping in the airport or paid 24-hr lounge until next morning, then get out as soon as i exchange my rail pass.

    the only hotel inside KIX is ridiculously expensive.
