Japan: Take instant coffee

All lodgings provide a thermos of hot water and bags of green tea in every room, but for coffee you'll either have to call room service (which can be expensive) or buy very sweet coffee in a can from a vending machine.

    Wait a minute!I DO take some Starbucks Via Ready Brew with me because I want my coffee first thing in the morning and the in-room hot pots are really nice. But you there are MANY alternatives to buying a can from a vending machine. There are coffee shops (thousands alone in Tokyo, and they were there long before Starbuck every came along) selling EXCELLENT brewed coffee. Give them a try, along with the "morning service" breakfast they all have. Much cheaper than eating at your hotel.
