Tokyo Tower offers a "birthday special" of free admission to the 150m observatory deck as well as a free piece of cake to guests who visit on their birthday. Admission to the Special Observation Deck at 250m is not included in this offer.

Tks for the reply....

Malaysia passport holder need to apply for Japan visa. The process fee is free for Malaysia passport.

Please visit the Singapore Japanese embassy website for all the details. Please print out all the necessary forms before going to the embassy. Saw a family went there empty handed. Had to go back and come back another day.

Hi, would anyone happen to know about any special passes for commuting in Japan that is not the JR Pass? This is for a 9 days 8 nights trip...

Saw the Skyliner Round Trip + Special Combination 2-Day Open Ticket @ •4,880 any idea if it's worth the price?

I will be making use of the Skyliner for traveling from the Airport if I'm getting the package to Inaricho where my hostel is at, but I'm a bit hesitant at the 2 day Tokyo Metro open ticket. I'm actually planning a Yokohama day trip and a Chiba day trip, the rest would be probably centered around the yamanote line which is operated by JR.

The JR East pass @ •15,000 for 3 days is a bit too short and too out of my range... orz


Hope someone can give some advice on this... Thanks many many~~~
