Actually the walkman is a better dap than iPod touch because of better internal amp, better digital enhancers and native support of alternative formats for music file like flac. But the lag happens very rarely , so it's not a huge problem or anything

ya lor that why all my daP is on sony
since the tape walkman era to mini disc and to first sony mp3
and to my existing A series flaghhip from sony
so now plan to upgrade to f series

but zx1 too ovepriced hahah
so opt for F series

btw check with u your F sereis can display korean lang music?

Hi bros, just want to seek advise whether is it advisable if i plan my trip in such as way that when i arrive in narita airport around 740am, i proceed straight to osaka using bullet train, instead of travel to osaka during the middle of my tokyo trip? so that i dun need to waste time doing packing and unpacking not wasting unecessary time travelling? Please kindly advise. thanks

Not possible. Metro tickets for Metro. JR for JR.You should plan your sightseeing all within the metro network. If you keep going in and out between metro and JR then SUICA is better suited for the convenience.

Or if you sightseeing is mostly reachable via JR, then get the Tokunai Pass for 730yen

But you need to use Hyperdia to help you to calculate of the day pass is even necessary a money saving option or not. Just do you maths.

Nice & compact itinerary. Looks like the Hankyu Tourist pass suit you fine.
Hankyu Tourist Pass | Golden Route 360°

Buy an ICOCA for the convenience of trains transfer.

Check out the b-mobile sim card for rent thread by dimitri_can. Since you will be there for 4-5 days, it is cheaper than ordering one online.
