Very smooth boarding, and excellent crew service. Food needs improving. Please provide eggs for breakfast. Also not enough water provided for this long flight. Crew needs to come around every 3 hours to offer water. Bigger size water bottles. Or provide a spigot to fill water bottles. Crew were always helpful and willing to provide water.

How to travel around Tokyo

Rail

Tokyo transportation is vast, and they are big on public transportation in most Japanese cities. The best way to get around is by using the Japan Railway (JR) system. The commuter train close to you can conveniently take you to your destination. From there you can hail a cab or walk. All public transportation systems have their distinct fare, so you must purchase a ticket when swapping between them. If you visit for a few days, you can buy a contactless prepaid card from JR East that deducts fares on all transportation lines.

Buses

Buses are not as accessible as the trains and subways in Tokyo due to the complicated route system. Most bus drivers do not speak English either, so they will not be able to direct you. Buses cost ¥200 JPY for a one-way trip, and they only take coins, bills, Suica and Pasmo cards.

Boats

Boats are helpful for the destinations that are across Tokyo Bay or on the Sumida River. It is also an excellent way just to explore the bay and Hinode Pier. The trips to the Pier take approximately 40 minutes each and cost ¥800 JPY.


Visa requirements for visiting Tokyo

U.S. and Canada passport holders just need a passport that is valid for three months; they do not need a visa if staying under 90 days. For other nationalities, please check the Japan National Tourism Organization website.

Tips and tricks for visiting Tokyo

Do Not Tip

Attentive service is a custom in Japan; not something that is tipped. It is known as osmote nashi. Tipping, therefore, is not expected, and a gratuity will be refused. In fact, if you were to leave a tip, the server might chase you down to return it!

Walk on the Left

Crowds are orderly when walking in Downtown Tokyo. Most will keep to the left of the street just like vehicles. The only time you can go to the opposite side is on an escalator.

Tokyo Residents are Extremely Polite

You will be welcomed everywhere you go, including boutiques, restaurants, and temples. Citizens are impressively polite and always willing to help. When welcomed, no response is necessary. Instead, a friendly bow in response is all you need.

Litter is Not Tolerated

Tokyo’s streets are impressively clean, and you will notice that smoking in non-designated areas is strictly prohibited.

Public Affection is Prohibited

You will see couples walking down the street that do not hold hands or show any affection in public. In Japan, affection is not for public display!
