Meaning over the night and you reach your destination in the morning. You won't waste a day and you can drop your luggage at the hotel and start your itinerary.
around midnight leave singapore and reach singapore morning. night sleeping time is all on plane. That's the best timing since you can extract maximum time in Japan. But depends on whether u can rest well on plane.

I landed in Haneda, Reached Tokyo Station before 7am. left all luggage in hotel and go to pass exchange office, that time the pass exchange office still closed (Starting 7:30). Then after getting the pass and buying all train tickets, i went to garden in Tokyo. Still closed also (Open 9am). I could extract the whole day from such flight. Since the flight is midnight, that day i could still work and then go back after work before going airport.
i see i see.. makes sense wor.. can maximise the day.
but i check SIA no have red eye flight to tokyo. earliest is 8am flight. reach there 2pm+

so far ANA ticket cheapest. 670.
SIA 710
JAL 750

SIA can chalk up krisflyer miles

Not true. All my flights to Tokyo and other airports in Japan are red-eye flights. Think there are flights at 2355 and around 0130.

just checking, first timer to tokyo, will be landing at narita airport.
8 days there and will be staying near yoyogi station.

what rail pass should I get if i'm heading around the yamamoto line?
the Tokunai Pass? or just get the suica card + n'ex return ticket combo?
You mean Yamanote Line is it? Just get a SUICA will do, as you may need to take metro/TOEI. Unless all your points of interest are solely on JR, then Tokunai will make sense.

No more SUICA+NEX bundle now. Just the NEX round trip at 4000yen.

BTW, NEX will not stop at Yoyogi. Nearest NEX stop is Shinjuku. Then board the Yamanote for Yoyogi. The Same NEX pass allows you to take Yamanote. so don't come out from the JR platforms but proceed to Yamanote platforms.

I think there are a few red eye flights. You can check Thai, Cathay or MAS if you dont mind transiting for a few hours.

everywhere and nowhere

I believe ABC grandstage stores will sell them but the stocks get snapped up really quickly

NMD almost disappear as fast as they come in, Ultraboost somehow also suffer the same fate...

I almost lost my shiat looking for it with my friend who was the one who wanted it, just last month. I will never understand the heat behind it but I am not much of a sneakerhead to begin with

By right should carry and show to custom that you are carrying out of Japan.
By left, they never ever check. 0%.
Normally in hotel, I remove the content and throw away the plastic bag. Easier to pack in luggage.
