The JR Pass not worth it if u're not taking Shinkansen (or Bullet Train) or travelling between provinces. Costs $460 to be precise.

I'm still negotiating with the tour operator.

Now trying to bring it down to $1,400 air tix + 4 nts hotel ;p

Batteries are super important. Weather is cold so batter life short. Can easily shoot up to 5000 photos. 1 day there confirm not enough one. Sometimes different day got different Image Girls!! ;p

I will need an indication of who is VERY interested to I can press price. those interested in going can please let me know what other place you would like to visit. Imperial palace, Mt Fuji... etc.

Also to add, although I may be busy during the show, nevertheless this will be sort of a photographers' trip. So you can take your time to compose and shoot your photos, unlike typical tour whereby you always don't have time to compose your shot before the whole group moves off without you liao :D

Weather should be between -2 to 4 deg with strong winds. Rain not expected. May snow near Mt Fuji. Wind breaker bought from Sports shop here will not be enough. I have a few if you need to borrow.

Humidity - Low so please bring moisturiser.

Power socket is two pin.

Most don't speaks english so a pocket translator may come in handy if you got lost.

Auto Roam will not work. If you need to be contactable, you can rent a J-Phone from M1.

We will be taking public transport so lots of walking and weather is cold. A pair of comfy shoe is important.

As long as you haven't pay a single cent to the travel agent you can back-out. But please be "steady" hor. I don't make a single cent out of this and if everybody back-out on me next time will not be $1400 but $1800 liao :confused:
