Plan to pickup the bmobile simcard at Haneda Airport post office in Terminal 1.
I am arriving at Haneda Airport by JAL. Arrival is in the international terminal for JAL? But the post office is at Terminal 1. Are International Terminal same as Terminal 1?
You can have it sent to your hotel address? They only need 2-3 working days for the mail to arrive.

yes, it is reliable. i have used it for various trips, although for japan i usually end up booking directly from the hotel's website
u can use agoda as well. compare and see which is cheaper.

i only stay in hostels dorm in japan since they are super clean
I usually book via their website though coz no administrative fee etc and also hostels and hotels normally allocate a small number of rooms on such booking sites. And to prevent overbooking, if u book via booking.com/agoda/etc, do drop the hostel/hotel an email to confirm your booking.

The hana hostel chain is good; except for the hiroshima branch a bit squeezy. Tokyo I previously stayed at nui backpacker since there's no hana hostel in tokyo

Some hostels have lockers free to use e.g. osaka hana hostel, while others require u to pay a small fee of 100-200 yen. Actually I feel that better to bring out ur valuables and keep photocopies of documents in dorms when u are out - for all the hostels I have stayed in, not much issue with security yet

some hotels may have blocked off some rooms booking through third party websites, tt is y their own website shows they have no more room.


as suggested by hoshiyume, u can book first, then double confirm with the hotel.


i suggest u book ur hotels fast since time is running out. just book those with free cancellation first, then if u can find something better, then change

A question on booking AirDo flights from Tokyo to Chitose (Sapporo). As the web bookings are in Jap only, I cannot find how much luggage weight is included in the pricing. Can we pay the ticket using Singapore credit card?
