I think small futons meant for summer use might be able to fit into the luggage though.

Something like this? https://www.nitori-net.jp/store/ja/e...82%93/7542184s

Hi, need urgent help. Preparing to get pre-paid data card on upcoming trip to Japan and using XiaoMi Redmi Note.


Looking at specification, it is only GSM, and not CDMA. Does anyone help confirm Xiaomi Redmi Note wont work over in Japan?


Thanks.

The surest way is to check out on your targeted SIM's company approved phone list.

Check if your Note 3G supports 2100Mhz or 800Mhz bands or not If yes then high chance can work on the Docomo(FOMA) network.

CNY is fine

they actually have some CNY stuff going in their retail area as to the influx of tourist from China

some stores even go as far as to target tourist with CNY 福袋 iirc

do expect to see quite a number of Singaporeans and other tourist from nations where the holiday is celebrated

is this you first visit to Tokyo? If not then better try other main sights. But if you are a repeat visitor, its a good choice but you must prepare to walk for a long time. The cemetery has plenty of Sakura trees(and large crows), so I can imagine its popular place during hanami season.

If you stay in Ueno are and u have a gap time to spend, its can be a refreshing stroll in a quiet neighborhood.

if u are going to based in tokyo, it is going to be difficult if not impossible to visit shirakawa go, osaka, kyoto, miyajima as day trips coz these places are too far away. for example, osaka is about 3hrs by train, and miyajima is about 5hrs.

u can base urself in osaka for a few days to visit osaka, kyoto and miyajima
