We made it to Japan! Then we spent over an hour going through immigration & customs, picking up our rented pocket WiFi and phone, and figuring out the trains.
I love visiting places that have great public transportation. I like it even better when I get a card or pass that lets me use it the way regular people do. Jason and I got these Suica cards. You pre-load it with some amount and then you can use it to pay for all the different trains and buses in Tokyo. And you can also use it to buy things from vending machines and apparently even some convenience stores.
However, we’re so exhausted that we already missed two opportunities to use them, opting to pay with cash instead. Tomorrow we’ll remember, I hope.
