    Sit Down Fees/ Each Person Must Oder

    by Nissanmit Written May 28, 2008

    No worries. This is not a dangerous tip. Just thought it would be useful for travellers to know that some small eatries in Tokyo charge a sit down fee. We ate at a yakitori eatery in a back lane (whole lane full of yakitori shops) in shinjuku and had to pay a 300 yen sit down fee. The in-charge explained that the fee is applicable due to the space constraint. These eateries typically sits at most 12 pax on one floor. The small eatries at the famous fish market also imposed one order per sit-down person ie no one sits for free. The famous ramen shops sited at the Shin Yokohama Ramen Musuem also apply the same rule. At least one bowl per person.

    Narita Airport

    by victorwkf Written Dec 29, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Narita Airport is located far from Tokyo city and therefore it is not cheap to get transportation from the airport to the city. The two cheapest ways are to take the limousine bus and train (both cost about 3500 yen one way). Never take the cab/taxi as it will cost you a lot of money, some say it may cost as much as a plane ticket. For more information, please visit the transportation section of this VT page. Attached are photos of the Narita area taken from the plane, this area is essentially flat farmland about 1-2 hours drive north-east of Tokyo city.

    Danger at Tsujiki Fish Market

    by victorwkf Written Dec 2, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are at the famous Tsujiki Fish Market, do be careful of the moving trucks and other vehicles as this is a very busy fish market. Some of them are moving very fast, so keep an eye while you explore the place.

    Dangers in Tokyo

    by victorwkf Written Jun 16, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tokyo is one of the most modern and safest city in the world, so you do not worry much about your safety while out in the streets. From my experiences, the so called "dangers" in Tokyo are as follows:
    - Getting lost in the sub-way (metro) system as it is very complicated with many lines. Trying to figure out how to get to your destination is a challenge.
    - Running out of money because the things in Tokyo are expensive. Use your credit card if possible so that you have enough cash just in case.
    - Try not to take the taxis as they are expensive.
    - Language problem as most do not speak English, but the people are very friendly and helpful, and sign language does help. If you want to communicate, use very simple English or just mention the place you want to go e.g. Shinjuku.
    - Beware of the crowds, especially in subway trains which can be jammed packed and famous places such as Shinjuku, Harajuku which can be superpacked especially during weekends.
