don't "donate" money lah. i read there are many fakes around

Was hoping someone can tell me how to identify a fake monk. I felt like dropping an offering.

So far i read, is those that approach people and sometimes selling some trinkets and have some written English signs are fake.
Those that stand there, holding the bowl and say nothing i feel are real. The place in the photo is also not really a tourist area.

If you want to donate, safer option is go inside temple itself.

Quick question, what kind of jacket to recommend for Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Shizuoka, Tokyo) next week, 15-25C range (and wet too)?


Another one, I'd be transiting at Haneda and then to Itami. I can't get a ICOCA card at Itami (only Kansai which has JR West) right?
Not cold!! Just thin jacket will do, that temperature, most of the time i don't wear jacket at all

Any decent wagyu beef buffet to recommend? Saw Mikey Chen ate at Musashi, seems nice at 6200 yen.

for D8, u can just head straight from hakata to huis ten bosch, no need to go to nagasaki.
personnally, i would drop some of the places in fukuoka city and free up a day for nagasaki city. atomic bomb museum is worth a visit if u have not been to hiroshima one, and mt inasa night view is one of the top 3 night view in japan
I put nagasaki because its in the prefecture

any idea which day to free up?


or should i jus shift/drop the Yanagawa - River tour? to other day? D4, D7 or D11 ?

ya i nv been to hiroshima b4

A youtuber who goes around the world finding good food. His youtube channel is strictly dumplings. He is quite popular among food enthusiasts, along with the food ranger and mark wiens.

I also had placed Tsuta 1* ramen at Sugamo station on my list, gonna wake up at 7am to get a queue ticket.

He had also reviewed the place u wanna go. At 12.41 mark.

personal prefer ba. see which places u want to prioritise.

for me, i not really into shopping, so i will probably drop Marinoa City since it is just an outlet mall. Canal city is just a mall also, so maybe can put it in one of the nights.

yanagawa river cruise was so-so for me only, but tt is because i cant understand japanese. the commentary, jokes, songs are all in japanese and i cant understand a thing. so it is just a boat ride thru the canals for me.
if u are planning to go yanagawa, u may want to consider getting their day pass which include the river cruise and train from fukuoka city. it also covers dazaifu.

first 3 days all got shibuya?

disneyland i suggest u enter as early as u can. coz it will be crowded, and u will need the whole day for it.

maybe can group ueno with asakusa, since they are near each other. ginza can be done with tokyo station also.

seems like a lot of shopping overall, will it be boring for the kid? maybe consider going odaiba for legoland discovery centre, and ferris wheel?

I enjoy his videos but his trip to Japan is like most of us who have been there for the first time. Everything is excellent lol.

If you have been to Japan several times and if you have the budget, AHSS review is more accurate
