I think it's $5-$10 (depending on ur bank)

I used POSB last time, was $5 + they charge extra 2% extra based on the exchange rates...

Fully agreed. Bring enough cash and a credit card for big ticket purchases.

Debit cards may not be accepted by overseas banks nor their ATMs. As a rule, make sure your DBS debit card carries the Sirrus logo. But even then, it may not garantee your card will work over there.

And even if it works, think about the hefty surcharges incurred just to use the card. You're better off using that surcharge amount to change for more Yen at The Arcade.

FYI, debit cards are NOT accepted at most car rental companies worldwide, including the car rental agencies in Hokkaido. And JAL and ANA website doesn't allow you to use debit cards to purchase the tickets either. So its still not a true credit card despite what Visa wants you to think.

hi, i think u might need to get 2 rooms.
Very seldom, Japan hotels allow you to have 4 persons in 1 room.
They count by person, not by room....

From my limited experience, it seems like Japanese hotel/hostel are pax based. If you book a twin room even though they are spacious and with big beds, you are still not allowed to check in with 4 pax. My information may not be correct. Do wait for other to feedback.:D

Hotel in Japan is very strict about the total number of person allowed in one room. Unless it is specified that they allowed 2 chds (which is very rare), it may be best for you to get 2 rooms.

BTW, what is you budget? I was in Japan last Dec and I spent about S$200/night for my family of 4 (2 adult and 2 child). The place come with a small kitchen and washing machine. But no daily room cleaning service. We got the whole place to our self and it is very clean. Walking distance (10 mins) to train station.
