Sakura in Japan Under BND1800

I just came back from one of my favouritest countries in the world – Japan.

This was my third visit – I’ve visited Tokyo, Fukushima, Sendai before and now on this trip I visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Nagoya. I generally don’t visit a country many times UNLESS I really love it haha.

When mentioning Japan, everyone thinks of how expensive it is but I honestly feel it’s comparable to Singapore – and I also think London is still way more expensive considering when I went there I didn’t even stay in a hotel!

Anyway, airfares, accommodation, transport and WIFI all in for under BND1800 – check it out below!

To be honest, we could’ve easily gone lower on the budget too but we decided on few things like –

  1. We wanted to experience a Japanese airline, and that means travelling from Kuala Lumpur and staying there 1 night – going and back. A slightly cheaper and certainly more hassle free option is to fly direct from Brunei using RB.
  2. While Haneda Airport and KLIA are both good airports to stay overnight in, we don’t mind paying $40 per night for extra comfort and a proper bed to rest in. ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Sharing the Wifi more! Hehe. The device actually can be shared between 5 people but that would mean we need to be with each other at all times. Having its split in 3 is more logistically practical, but a more expensive option.
  4. For the PASMO, that’s basically a reloadable card – I put in roughly BND100 in cause I don’t wanna queue many times to charge my PASMO. I have leftover of about BND30 in my PASMO now – and also sometimes I use it to buy coffee. You have the option to load in as much or as little as u like. ๐Ÿ™‚

Next post: our itinerary! Stay tuned!
