We're going to Japan! What should we do? What are some useful iPhone apps? How do we get Internet access?
I've read some of the old questions
, but I thought it was worth asking if there are any particular things of interest going on right now or specific to the places we're going that we should make sure not to miss.
Here's our itinerary:
- 5 nights in Tokyo
- 1 night in Ōkunoshima (AKA Rabbit Island)
- 2 nights in Hiroshima
- 2 nights in Fukuoka with a side trip to Ainoshima (AKA Cat Heaven Island)
Knowing where we're going to be are there any particular cool things we should check out?
Also, are there useful iPhone apps we should know about (for using transit or finding attractions, places to eat, etc.)?
Finally, any suggestions for getting Internet access while traveling around? I have an unlocked AT&T iPhone 4S, so I ways planning to buy a pre-paid SIM card, but my companions' phones aren't unlocked. The pocket wifi from Global Advanced
sounds great, but they don't have any available right now (we're leaving next week). Are there any other similar options from other carriers or alternatives for Internet access? Any specific recommendations for where to get a good deal on a SIM card for me? I mostly just want data/text; I won't be talking on the phone much.
