Yes. Anyway you're supposed to carry some form of identification (your passport) with you in any country you travel. In the event that you're being stopped and authorities wish to check if you had a valid entry permit and you just need to show your passport.

Even without the purpose for tax exemption, ur passport is ur only form of identity in a foreign country..

I usually leave my passport in the hotel safebox when I am out.

Wink Nagoya Station

Hi, like to ask those who hv been to Nagoya.

Is Nagoya train (station) packed/crowded during peak hours? Example: Tokyo is extremely crowded during peak hours. Want to estimate my timing to avoid the crowd.

Thanks.

I'm looking to book plane tix to tokyo during late nov this year.

The timing from SG->HND is ok. 2am fly, 10am reach HND.
However i'm concern about the return timing.

There are only 2 return timing from JAL.

12.05am or 10.50am flight.

Not sure which is better. I'm leaning towards 10.50am flight as the timing is quite ok just have to wake up early.

For the 12.05am flight, i'm not sure since have to check out at 12pm...then the next 10 hours have to bring luggage around. Unless the hotel allows us to put our luggage, I don't know how to tahan the many hours bringing luggage around.

Which would you choose?


Edit: Hmm maybe I can just book another day hotel...although won't fully utilize the xtra day but that $100+ will save lots of headache.

Can I ask, i've heard alot about Shin-Imamiya as not a good place to stay in Osaka? Like there's alot of beggars and things like that. Is it safe to stay there? Esp at night. I stayed in Imamiya before, that seems okay leh.

I'm traveling alone, so want to make sure. If not i'll go for places near Hommachi/Nipponbashi there.

Some train station have luggage locker for you to deposit and collect later - I know there is one near Ueno station.

Took JAL 0200hrs and 0005hrs flights. Stored my luggage with Sagawa (3F) located at NEWoMan. Went back to collect my luggage around 2030hrs after last minute shopping. Repacked and boarded the limousine bus at Shinjuku Busta (4F - just one level above Sagawa) and reached Haneda Airport before 2200hrs.

Still fine. Just that their subway Higashiyama line is extremely crowded during morning peak.
