Expedia is Super reliable. It’s HUGE owning Trivago, Hotels.com, Homeaway and many more. Their bundled deals unbeatable, ie. airfare + hotel

Expedia booking for hotels reliable? Especially when I chose to pay immediately instead of "pay later"? Bcos of the credit card promotion, I can only pay instantly. So far never use Expedia before though...

can share is it difficult to find atm with visa plus??
not hard. Look for JP Post office or 7-11. You can draw money there.

I don’t find anything special.
But if u say different style of HK for different prefecture then yes. But again, u can buy on Rakuten n send to hotel.

Thank you! I'm not really interested in the rides since we're already adults... Hahaha just wondering the shops there sell more/unique items compared to other places like Kiddyland or any character street in Tokyo station?

okay i got it.
i happen to have SUICA card left over from last year.
i just found out that i can also use the SUICA card in Osaka.

however can i use the SUICA card (instead of ICOCA card) to buy a discounted Haruka train pass from kansai to USJ and from kyoto to kansai?

So Steakland is still the place to go? Budget is around 4-5k for a decent lunch set. Actually I tend to avoid those overly white marbling due to health (and pocket) reasons.
There are better places to eat other a5 cattles in japan. Don’t restrict oneself to just kobe
