Hey guys,

I have some questions here on mobile access
  • Any mobile Wifi to recommend?
  • Will the signal in furano and biei be bad with other telecoms other than docomo and softbank?
  • Is it advisable to get the mobile wifi or sim cards directly at chitose airport ?
  • Heard about ninja wifi and advance mobile? is the coverage in furano area ok?
  • As for sim cards? should we buy at chitose airport or order on the website first? Any recommendation?
You might wish to get from me... =)

would you suggest to go on tour or on own for traveling in jp?


F&E will be more enjoyable. can see more and do more if u go F&E. and u are free to spend more time at places u like and skip uninteresting places. can also explore less touristy places.


however, that is provided u enjoy planning and have time to settle the logistics (accom, air tickets etc). if u dun want the hassle, then probably tour package will be better for u.

What would you think is a must visit in Tokyo?

"must-visit" really depends on ur personal preference.
u can refer to japan-guide for the places to visit:
http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2164.html


my personal must visit places are:
- odaiba: for life-size gundam, night view of rainbow bridge, and the big open space is a contrast to other crowded parts of tokyo
- akihabara: for anime related stuff
- harajuku: traditional (meiji shrine) and pop (cosplay, takesh!ta-dori) culture all in one place
- Tokyo tower: iconic structure
- Asakusa: Sensoji is quite iconic as well

Is it worth to get the Seishun 18 Kippu(youthful18) ticket, cost 11850yen for 5days unlimited travel. I'm pretty much confused by the railway system in Japan. It says only Can be used on jr lines. Is it worth it? Thank you !

that rail pass is not valid for special express and limited express

the best is rapid. Depends on how much time you have to travel and it is also a limited period sale thing

if u are only travelling within Tokyo, the pass is not worth it.
travelling within Tokyo is relatively cheap. u can just get the SUICA (store-value card similar to ezlink) to get around on JR trains and non-JR metro.


u can check the transport cost here:
