    For your info, the other quick immigration thing is called Customs, the one where they check your passport is called Immigration. This is standard in most countries.
    About the cash withdrawal, I found that even small convenience stores like Family Mart (Similar to 7/11 in Hong Kong) accept all major credit cards and even some I've never heard of. They don't mind customers paying for small purchases with their credit cards (about 600-700 Japanese Yen). Gas stations, restaurants and department stores all accept credit cards, even car parks accept credit cards.
    You might consider adding information about car rentals as a considerable number of visitors to Japan prefer driving around on their own, especially if your going to head out of the city. I've used Times Car Rental (https://www.timescar-rental.com/campaign/0000005036/en/index.html) as well as Hertz. The vehicles that I rented had Japanese and English GPS installed, the GPS is super easy to use, either type in the destination or input the landline phone number of your destination. The GPS typically guides you to your destination with minimal hassle. Prepare some cash for tolls, a few toll booths accept Visa or MasterCard, not all.
    Have fun talking to the friendly people and exploring the beautiful nation of Japan.

    I pretty much did what you said, minus the pocket wifi. Which I'll be getting this time, when I go back.
    Great job on the video. Very helpful hints for people that will be visiting Japan.

    can you please do a video about the currency for Japan I'm going to Tokyo in the next 2 months and I'm a little worried about buying stuff out there and not getting the correct amount of money back or giving them to much

  10. deardannielle

    Jesse, why do you prefer pocket wifi over sim card? I'm going to Japan on November alone :D, i just think that it would be rather handy if i use sim card. Will they allow tourist to buy sim card?

    So, I'm planning a trip to Japan, but I don't know the best way to move around as I want to visit at least three big cities. Would you be able to give me any advise as I saw a $600 like transit card for 2 weeks in any train to any destination, or maybe buying daily transport cards is better? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanx in advance.
