Any machine that can top up icoca should be able to top up suica. Try using the pink colour machines

Hi, will be going Japan for 8 days. Main intention is to be at Tokyo+Kyoto+Osaka. Wondering if I should stay at Tokyo on the 1st night (so that I can leave my luggage at the Tokyo Hotel) before heading to Osaka and Kyoto for 4 nights before I check-in back at the Tokyo Hotel. Or should I take along my luggage n travel to Osaka from Narita Airport, then to Kyoto, and back to Tokyo.

u may want to check with ur hotel whether they can allow u to put ur luggage for 4 days. usually 1-2 days shld be ok, but 4 days a bit long.

i would prefer to go straight to osaka, so dun have to change hotel so many times. so for ur entire trip, u only need to stay osaka then tokyo, instead of tokyo, osaka, tokyo.

have emailed the hotel but hasn't gotten any reply yet.. I'm just worried about the hassle of having a big luggage with me when traveling into Osaka n Kyoto..

Anyone knows if the Kansai Thru pass can be used on Kyoto's city bus? I'm thinking of taking bus 80 from Kiyomizu-Gojo station to somewhere nearer to Kiyomizudera. Thanks

According to this, it's included:
KANSAI THRU PASS (English) | Ticket&Goods | SURUTTO KANSAI

Are there any hostel that cost around $30sgd+ per night for a person? A bit inconvenient is okay. (15-20mins walk from station) can communicate in basic nihongo. no preference on the facilities

Thanks a lot for the keyword

Does anybody knows what's the first train timing for most of the lines? If I have a flight 6.45am at Narita to Fukuoka most likely have to take cab or can make it for first train?

Coming back will reach Narita airport at 10.15pm. Flight to Singapore again is at 11.05pm. Almost 2 hours differences, do you guys feel that the timing is quite dangerous?

6.45am i think very unlikely to have train.
u can check hyperdia, change 'Type' option to "Arrival" instead of "Departure", to show trains that arrival the the destination before the time

the coming back timing may be very hard to meet. is ur domestic flight to narita and the international flight back to sg going to be in the same terminal? need to check-out and check-in again?

I'm not very sure actually. I think I will just add another 4k yen to avoid the confusing flight timing. I tried checking hostelworld and hotel like tokyo inn but all of them have no accommodation from 2nd to 3rd May. This is so weird..
