Hi what about the power socket in Tokyo? Do we need to buy a adaptor for our 3 pin plug?
Yes. Japan uses the 2-pin flat plug.

I also planning to go Hakone in end March.

my plan is just to go there and buy from shinjuku the http://www.odakyu-travel.co.jp/eng/h...aeri_main.html

(1-day trip) 8,400yen

all transport covered, and got a onsen, seems good deal to me. got better options? I live nearer Tokyo station actually haha.






btw from Narita airport to go to Oshiage, the best and most cost effective route issit take Keisei limited to Aoto, then change?






Hyperdia say take the following:

1. Keisei Narita Sky Access Exp. for KEISEI-UENO

AOTO

2. Keisei Oshiage Line Rapid for NISHI-MAGOME


What ticket should I buy, I'll get the 3-days unlimited ride one.. I think can use for "Keisei Oshiage Line Rapid" , then need to buy a "sky access/limited express" ticket right.

Most hardware shops will sell de, or those neighborhood store that sell everything. Or buy online

http://www.qoo10.sg/su/177013964/Q100007949

Edit Found the correct de, i used something like this last time. LOL sorry. DX.com should have more choices too. Its really useful for many countries too .

Bought simple adapter from neighbourhood bargain shop. Have to dig around a bit.

Also have those for multiple country use for price is higher of course. These are heavier and a little bulkier.

i wouldn't even bother. just put all your cash in your wallet (or split half with your partner/wife). japan is not like europe, there is neglible risk of getting pick-pocketed or robbed. and since you're renting whole apartment i also don't see any need to lock up your bags or whatever.

*disclaimer* of course, "low crime doesn't mean no crime" but i go japan carry 300-400k yen in cash without worrying one bit about it (some in wallet some in wife handbag some leave behind in unlocked luggage).
