I leave next week for 9 days in Japan (I know, I wish it could be longer) and have a few last minute questions.
-My boyfriend and I have already bought our JR passes that are good for 7 days. Leaving out of Tokyo's Shinjuku station, which line(s) would get us to Mt. Fuji?
-We've booked a hotel in Osaka for 2 days and plan on going to Harry Potter World while there; any advice on what kind of park tickets to buy? I know we only need 1-day tickets, but there're options for 5 or 7 ride fast passes-- should we buy those instead? We both love going on all types of rides.
-This one might seem a little random: we both plan on getting a small/medium tattoo to mark this trip while we're there, but I'm at a loss of where to look for reputable tattoo shops in Tokyo (English speaking would be a HUGE plus as together we only speak conversational Japanese).
-I'd like to buy a pair of noise-cancelling headphones for the plane ride (2hrs and then 12hrs straight for us) but I can't decide on what kind to go with. $300 is my max, and I prefer over the ear to anything else. Wireless or not wireless, doesn't much matter to me. I have a couple more long distance flights this year and want a solid pair. Bose quiet comfort Q25 and Beats Studio Wireless keep popping up at the top of my list.
Thanks for any and all comments. I tried to be as specific as possible with the questions
