By the way, I've already lived in Tokyo before (10month) so maybe I can help you

@ LeckerSchmecker: Sure I have got MSN. Just PM me and give me your MSN add! ^^
@ hiaki002: The flight is pretty cheap this time. Normally you have to pay a lot more. But I got a good offer and a lot of luck. So my flight only costs around 800 €. This time I'll be staying in a hostel. A hostel is a good alternative to stay in Japan. Hotels are really expensive. Btw. where are you from? ^^

you're SURE about this? cuz I heard from a (male!) friend it's REALLY hard to come around the first few days (bcz afterwards he met with his japanese friends)
and you're alone, a girl & a 'gaijin'! if you can't speak proper japanese and/or read kana (&kanji), then how are you going to explain yourself? plus you're alone, no one to rely on etc. and it's not like they know english that well, even if they do, it'll be hard to understand their pronounciation
perhaps you'll be lucky enough to meet someone who can help you & doesn't bother being stucked up with a 'gaijin'...

Forget whether you can speak Japanese or not - summer in Japan is just TOO hot!! Unless you are heading to the alps (Nagano Ken) or Hokkaido! I live in Osaka, Japan and it will probably be above 30 degrees celcius everyday from now till the beginning of October. In August it is usually around 35 and very humid! Personally, I leave Japan every summer. I'm Canadian and just can't bear the heat and humidity... Sorry to sound sound pessimistic... It's a great place fall, winter and spring...but summer?!!!

Just came back from Japan and it wasnt that hot. I did Fukuoka and Tokyo this time.
Getting around Japan isnt cheap but for foreigners, buying the JR pass outside of Japan
as well as the YOKOSO pass is the way to go..
http://www.jal.co.jp/yokosojapan/
You need to buy the pass before leaving for Japan though.

BTW, I'm a girl and I was in Roppongi stalking (dont ask) until 5am
and had no problems... =x
Japan (to me) is relatively safe if you're sensible..

Cheers^^

It is a Air Pass if you want to fly around in Japan. I never really fly in Japan unless you it was something far apart, like Tokyo-Sappro where I fly over taking the train. Otherwise if you do the standard tokyo-kyoto-Osaka then just getting a Japan rail pass, or paying single fare train tickets is the easiest way.

New special from JR East. From July 1 to October 31, 2007, you can purchase a 3-day JR East pass for only Y10000. This is a promo to get people to travel to northern Honshu island (Aomori, Nagano, Akita, Iwate). You must purchase the pass by Oct 1. This is NOT valid on the Tokaido or Sanyo Shinkansen lines (leaving Tokyo for Kyoto and points west).
