2 weeks $5000?

Postby Stefan » Mon 01.24.2011 6:52 pm

planing on going to japan late this year, and can only afford to go for 2 weeks due to obligation from work and plan to save 5k for this. is 5k enough you think? i plan on flying to tokyo and going clubbing, seeing some penpals, of course sight seeing and just having a all around good time. possible travel to fukuoka via shinkansen.

$5K for 14 days $357/day. What type of accommodation are you looking at? If you are paying $300/night for accomodation then $5K probably won't be enough. :)

If you work out how much you are spending on accommodation you will then know how much you have to spend per day on food and entertainment.

Well $357/day for food, entertainment and a bit of sight seeing should be adequate.

On my last trip I had a JR Rail Pass and had prepaid my accommodation and two of us got by on less than $100/day. I'm too old to go clubbing though. :)

well, unless they are talking oranges, I think they mean Naval installation, or as we call them in the states, Naval Bases..

No kidding. :)

Who'd have thought that the Yokusuka Navel (sic) Installation is a Naval Base. :mrgreen:

while i was jovial about it, i was pointing out that navel is the incorrect way to spell naval. navel has to do with belly buttons and oranges. naval has to do with navy. anyways, carry on.
