No, your name in kana is not really required, it's just that the booking systems for both sites are 100% geared for Japanese people. But instead of making something up, just punch your name into Google Translate and let it do the work: James Smith → ジェームス·スミス. That said, I wouldn't bother booking at all, the buses are virtually never full. Just show ...

You don't need to come back to India, because the visa does not dictate where you should start your journey. You can fly to Japan, spend some time there, and from Japan fly to the US. For immigration, it would be just the same as if you flew from India (or anywhere else). The visa guarantees you entry to the border point, and it does not dictate anything ...

As you mention, your passport has no issue with immigration to Japan, then it just comes down to what you're doing there. You'll be able to show you have an exit flight from Japan, so that's fine, and that you want to just leave the airport for a few hours. Indeed, I did this exact thing in June - I had a few more hours than you, so I had the day in Tokyo, ...

Assuming you're a Thai citizen, you do not need a visa for stays in Japan of up to 15 days, so you are free to leave the airport. Go through immigration normally, state "transit" as purpose of visit, and show your onward boarding pass if needed. For what it's worth, you don't even need to leave the airport to get sushi, there's a decent restaurant in the ...

I wouldn't recommend talking a toddler to any of the museums inside the peace park. My group (which were all mid-20s males) were pretty shaken by some of the stuff, and there were things that I wouldn't want to show a child just yet (the effects of radiation on people, there's a display that has mannequins of what people looked like post detonation), and ...

This is from my experience, but you don't always have to pay cover. A lot of places will offer different specials, one such place I went to had "Say hello to the bartender in your language" or "No cover for people visiting for the first time" they were really nice places. Some of the places that had a cover had people talking to us in english and welcoming ...

Boring explanation: They're lot numbers (ロット番号), not expiration dates, referring to a batch of product made at the factory. So if you call them up and say "hey, there's wombats in my tofu", they can recall the lot in question. As a consumer, you can't match a lot number to the expiration date (賞味期限), which you should find printed somewhere else on the ...

One of the best ways would be to read through the Tripadvisor reviews on Shinjuku Golden Gai. There are many experiences there referencing specific bars and places, most of them very positive. You can find the places to avoid by looking for the bad reviews! As a former Tokyo resident, I think the open-door/closed-door suggestion is a bit too conservative - ...
