Hotspots, Money, Tempura & Ramen!

Jump to last reply

Hi all. We leave in 19 days for my daughter's 13th birthday celebration in Japan. Hotels and Ryokans are booked in Tokyo, Miyajima and Kyoto. Trains are reserved to Nara, Nikko, Hiroshima, and Kyoto. Restaurant reservations are made at the more upscale places, including Jiro which is the main gift. The kids -- 3 girls -- are getting crazy Japanese nails, making sushi, taking samurai lessons, making kimonos, and taking part in a traditional tea ceremony. And of course, we will try to see Harajuku girls too! We have all of the sights -- temples, gardens & museums -- covered on self-guided and guided walking tours that I picked up from reading every trip report that I could find.

So this is what I need to finish this trip up with a bang:

1) The best mobile wifi company to rent a personal hot spot device. I've contacted two companies that I read about that never got back to me.

2) Best ramen noodle spots. They don't have to be fancy -- we just want to experience different varieties of top notch ramen, especially for lunch when we are out touring.

3) Best tempura spots. Again does not have to be fancy but looking for a few lunches and a dinner.

4) Lastly, money thoughts. Should I take out a bunch of cash at the airport? Will I be making most of my shopping purchases with my credit card? Besides trains and taxis, will I use a lot of cash? Please advise your thoughts. I read about trying to find post offices and 7-Elevens to take out cash.

Thanks in advance all. Your help has been amazing!
