Q's regarding Japan

Jump to last reply

Ok, just about 11 days left until we leave for Japan! I'm getting really excited. I just have some random Q's ... feel free to add anything else you want.

Are there different brands of bento boxes and what should I look for?

Do Japanese use artificial sweeteners? Should I bring splenda/equal for tea/coffee? I generally bring some for the plane anyway.

What are some gifts I could bring back? knives, ceramic dolls, chopsticks??

I know tipping isn't required but what about at hotels such as housekeeping?
Will customs, etc take about 1 hour at Narita?

Is there a website about food restrictions and anything else you can't bring into the country?

How is the H1N1 being handled over there? I haven't been able to get vaccinated but not because I haven't tried
