^ Might not be a good idea to bring a mobile phone cos of the difference between UK and Japan plugs (which are similar to US plugs, I think). Also, the networks are different. If you need one badly, get it through PuRuRu (sp?). Someone said if you have a 3G phone, it'll be fine, so I dunno. It's better to buy one if you're going there for a year but you'll need to get a resident to buy it for you cos I think visitors aren't allowed to purchase mobile phones there? I think using an internet cafe is better than a mobile if you don't know anyone there and won't need it to make arrangements. That's at least until you make friends.

- Photocopies of your passport and visa (keep them separated from your passport and visa). This applies for all trips, anyway.

- I don't know where about in Japan you'll be going for a year or whether you need to find a place to stay, a lot of people say it might a good idea to bring enough for a deposit (that you're unlikely to see again).

That's all I can think cos I don't know whether you're staying in one place and whether you'll work there.

compare to other countries around Japan(lik china, korea, philippines), it's expensive...but i think it's fine..

i would recommend you not to buy a used underwear haha!...but serious....som girls r selling their own underwears in Tokyo to earn som money....

ok back to topic...dont walk around the street at midnight cuz there are som groups of delinquents(lik high school dudes lik som of my friends in Japan) try to steal som money or fight with people....well just be carefull if you SEE em

carry som money ofcourse..but dont carry lik $300 in your wallet or somthin...carry lik $50-$80 in your wallet and left rest of your money in safe box in your hotel room
