- Cheaper JR Pass Hack: If you're travelling to the main popular cities like Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto, there is a lesser-known but CHEAPER Japan Rail Pass (JR Pass) for that! Instead of getting a Whole JR Pass that costs around S$360, opt for the Hokuriku Arch Pass, which costs only S$306 for the same duration. That's $60 in savings!
Some other tips:
- Travelling on a budget but still want a hearty meal? Try a Yoshinoya or Matsuya! These "fast food" chains are not like the ones we have in Singapore. For around just 500yen, you can get a well-rounded meal with fresh meat, eggs, rice and soup. The best part of it is that you can find one of these restaurants all across Japan.
- Gesturing the number six is very different in Japan. We typically raise one hand with five fingers, and other with a thumb up to indicate six, however this is not recognised in Japan. The Japanese people stack two hands together, palm against knuckles; The back hand with five fingers up, and the front hand with one index finger up.
