Eeeek. I’ve a long day on Friday. Staying at airport overnight, then a 3ish hour flight to Sydney, then a few hours wait there, and a 9hr 55min flight to Tokyo!! I never realised it was so far away, but I guess my route takes me a longer way round.
I’ve already started to witness the anal way of doing things in Japan. I emailed accommodation I’ve used in Bangkok the other day to book a room. A confirmation came back. No worries.
I sent an email to a ryokan in Tokyo the same day. Admittedly I got my dates wrong, but I said that if there were rooms on my real dates then I wanted it, and to let me know step 2 of the booking process. I then got a reply informing me there were rooms and to let them know if I wanted it………..
