just to let you know in NRT,

1. luggage lockers of various sizes are abundant and they are also strategically located near the mobile wifi rental booth. and train station is just a lift or escalator ride away.
in fact, at 500yen for the large size locker, it is 100yen cheaper than in HND. :D

2. i don't know how exactly their duty free inspection works in japan because we were also informed by the airline staffs that we can check-in ALL our tax-free purchases into our checked luggage.

so those 2 points that were highlighted in your blog are not unique to only HND. :)

how much per night?

anyhowsaysay 13-09-2015 07:19 PM

I read the blog, Japan custom at least for me never check for tax free etc.

I normally check in all my items in my luggage and only hand carry camera stuff

I doubt any custom will do it (Check to see the tax free status)

anyhowsaysay 13-09-2015 07:20 PM

The next day, we suddenly realised that we were all flying back to Singapore on different dates and timing and that if the customs officer check our items at the airport, we are kind of screwed if not all items are present. -> This part never ever ever check.

edit. I also check in all my items in my luggage, nv kenna check for tax free items too at both haneda and narita

Remind me of my previous japan trips. Some places really nice and beautiful. Memories...

The pop up cafe of little twin stars and my melody should be very cute ah. The donuts are too cute to eat!

Not sure what is market rate but we paid about $250-300/night without breakfast after my friend redeemed some points.

yep we attempted to google about this customs checking thing but there were very few useful information online. anyway, i eventually asked the airport staff + experienced it myself.

Moving forward, we will never know if the govt might one day discover the loophole..
