·      Transport fare for Bus in kyoto is flat ¥220/ride
·      Head plugs/socket for electricity in Japan is different, so prepare yours.
·      Some spot in Japan where you can buy cheap meal: Seven Eleven, Lawson 100, yoshinoya, sukiya, matsuya
·      You can use Willer Express Bus for transportation across city, ex: from Tokyo to Osaka
·      Locker available in station that you can use to deposit your luggage. Fee for Small one is ¥100, medium for ¥400, large for ¥600
·      Most attraction in Kyoto is closed after 16.30 PM. You won’t get to see anything at night in Kyoto. So travel to this area in the morning.
·      If you want to save money and make your friend jealous with you, you don’t need to go up to Tokyo tower or Tokyo skytree. It’s wiser if you just take some photos in front of the iconic building, because the price ticket is high.
·      The suggested itinerary for 9 days travel around Tokyo-Kyoto-Osaka:  Tokyo 4 days, Kyoto 1 day, Osaka 3 days (Counting time elapsed while you transport from one city to another)
