comment Can I buy a SIM card in Germany for a short duration?
"those phone cards where you call a special number and you have much better rates" are usually termed "calling cards" in my experience.

comment Are there any cafes serving breakfast in Bakewell / Peak District that are open around 8 AM on Sundays?
I've noticed in some parts of the world I've visited lately that a lot of bars and cafes that don't have websites have Facebook pages - so it might be worth looking there.

comment How officious is Etihad airlines at checking passengers return or onward tickets?
It's true, I could even buy a ferry ticket. But before I invest in working around the problem I want to establish a more definite idea of whether the problem occurs, or what the chances are.

I'm going to publicize this question on Facebook too where some of my expat friends in Korea will see it...

@choster: I would be flying into Korea on Etihad. I have a feeling the wondercheap fares I've found are all nonrefundable. And with the amount of money I have left I don't have a lot of options. But I don't want to wimp out either d-:

comment What are the typical meals in Japan?
Note of course OP didn't only ask about traditional food, which you answered admirably. It's very typical to eat foreign food, (or what Japanese think foreign food might be like). I had a hard time getting one Japanese host to take me for Japanese food when he always wanted to go to an awful bland Italian chain. Crepes are really popular, curry is really popular, sushi is a special occasion one or twice a year so I'm told. If you're a guy you might love gyudon as much as me. Onigiri is a great snack. Bento is cheaper if you heat it yourself. Korean and Chinese food is everywhere too!

The Food section of WikiTravel's Japan page is as good a place as any to start learning.

I found a McDonalds in India (maybe Hyderabad?) that not only didn't have hamburgers, it didn't have anything except sundaes or ice cream!

comment What are the typical meals in Japan?
There is no typical for prices. You can pay anything from $3 or less up to ... no upper bound really. I think you need to reword that part of the question to be specific. If you want extreme low budget advice I can help. Without knowing your budget I can't help.
