comment How can I discover what time of the year hotels will be cheapest for a given city, e.g. Tokyo?
Oh, I see. I was misinterpreting a statement--the December/January one as booking now could be more expensive than booking later. Sorry!

Why would you think that booking now (in December) would adversely affect rates in January or February or any other time? Hotel booking prices are just like airfare prices--based on anticipated demand at a particular time, not necessarily when you book.

comment Historic flight altitude data?
Have you contacted FlightAware to see if they're willing to provide you the data? If you make a very specific and limited request, they might waive any fees for an educational use.

comment Historic flight altitude data?
Why altitude and not flight paths? I'm also trying to decide if you should ask on gis.SE.

Haven't confirmed it, but this site says there are no ferries between the 3 island groups except during May through September (due to weather).

comment Duty exemption for non-resident aliens
Have you been in the US more than 5 years? If so, you're considered a resident for tax purposes and possibly also for the customs/duty exemption.

comment Vehicles required/allowed in weigh stations on US interstates
Admittedly this was 20 years ago, but I went from Ohio to California in a 21 or 24-foot Penske truck. At the first weigh station, we pulled in, and they basically said, 'get out, and don't stop at any other weigh stations'. They were...unamused.
