On the phone, well, yes and no. You can call people but it's really expensive, something like $1.25 USD per minute. I only use the calling for emergencies or for something quick like if I'm trying to meet someone and we don't see each-other. Internet use is unlimited though. SMS is a little different in Japan, people don't really use it because you can only SMS with people on the same network. Everyone uses email instead.

Ahh, now that is great information. We all can chat online like say MSN or ebuddy for that matter. Unlimited net is awesome~. $1.25 USD per minute is too expensive, yup so we should leave it for desperate times.

It depends on your budget and what hotel we use, but what I've done in the past is buy a really cheap netbook to use for traveling. It's small/light and because it's cheap I'm not worried if it gets damaged in my bag or stolen.

My budget will be as much as possible, I rather bring more then bring less. No need to spend them all either.
Netbook is something like an eepc?

Yeah, this is the one that I picked up cheap last year. I think it was around $250 USD. It's great for traveling because it's so small it packs easy, gets good battery life and being cheap I'm not always worrying about what happens to it Happy http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834115718

@320x200 hmm, that would be additional cost to this trip if I am to buy that and bring it along. I am already somewhat used to lugging my huge laptop with me whenever I leave for another country but, as you said.. it will fully depend on the hotel.

@tempostorm. OF COURSE HIGH RES! I will not settle for any less! I believe some of us will agree on that too.

Pokemon sure sounds like a good idea, only prob is that it's at most 4 people a time... PSP has too many variety of games, I feel the best is still bringing a simple set of cards, best would be mono deal

Getting quite off topic here~ XD. Speaking of board games, we do have an issue of playable space.. meaning we might not have table or even floor size to play.. depending on the lodging

Ok, I have scouted a few hostels and rental apartments, all of which, only 2 replied and they are Sakura hotel Ikebukuro and Hikari Tokyo Apartments.

http://www.sakura-hotel-ikebukuro.com/rooms.php
scroll down till you see Whole Floor on your Own!
That is a package they offered us

http://www.tokyoapartment81.com/short/detail/plan-33226/index.html
This room is what they are offering

Prices are less then 100(SGD) a day per person. This is just a reserach, what do you guys think?


The sakura hotel seems like a good option. Having the whole floor means more bonding between the members who are going for the trip.

@Makoto, indeed.. and what is more important then anything is our safety. Where are you currently staying in? Give us a heads up on your hotel

@Shift123, yup~ which is a great idea. Though I dun wanna make this like a class field trip, most of us are pass 21, unless you all wanna do that.. LOL
