One Week in Japan for RM3,500 (Osaka, Kyoto & Tokyo)

4/08/2019


Hi guys!

This post is about 4 month's late but oh, well. At least, I am active again and I am about to share with you about my one week trip in Japan last fall/autumn and how I only spent RM3,500 all-in.

But first, let me explain who I went to Japan with because this one is a bit complicated. So you know how the Husband has this set of friends that call themselves the 'Thunder Buddies'? Their wives and girlfriends are called WAGs. So Nina, Daniel Syaukani's wife, studies and lives in Tokyo. Sara Halysa, Arif Lee's girlfriend felt like visiting her which we have always promised to do. A few weeks before we bought the tickets, Sara was like, "Hey, I'm going with my friend, Farah!" (who is actually Arif's friend), whom I am not sure if I ever met her before, and I just went along with it.

So ta-da!

From left: Me, Farah, Nina and Sara.

Alright. So budgeting was done by Sara and Farah and I followed je because I go with the flow. And I know you guys just wanna know how much was the flight, right?

FLIGHT

Kuala Lumpur to Osaka (Malaysia Airlines)
Osaka to Tokyo (Jetstar) + 40kg luggage to be shared among us three
Tokyo to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia Airlines)

Total: RM1,800

ACCOMMODATION

This is kind of where we cheated. In Kyoto, we stayed at The Lower East Nine Hostel in an all female dorm for three nights. IT WAS AMAZING! In the bathroom, there was one stall with a bathtub. So I went in the hot tub for every shower. It was so good for my aching body.

The rest of the nights? We stayed in Nina's house in Tokyo so it was FREE! Thank you, Nina, we love you! 

Total: 11,400 yen = RM425

OTHER TRAVELING EXPENSES

Before we went, Sara and Farah found this Wi-Fi Router Rental that gave us UNLIMITED INTERNET IN JAPAN!! They are rockstars! It was only RM169 which was about RM57 per person.

In Osaka, we bought the Kansai Thru Pass 3 days which cost us RM183 because Sara bought from Klook.

We rented a car in Tokyo to go to Hakone, so Sara calculated it at 5,400 yen per person (including toll and petrol) which was RM200.

For the life of me, I cannot remember how much we spent on trains in Tokyo. Narita - Tokyo, 3 days in Tokyo and Tokyo - Narita. That was a blur but Farah said Skyliner was RM221.40 for three people  one way and our daily train rides for three days was about RM129.70 for three people. So total but for one person is roughly RM200 because I'm sure we were missing somethings in there. Lol.

Total: RM640

FOOD

Ahhhh. Everyone's favourite topic. To be honest, we were not so thrifty on food because we enjoy food and frankly, it takes very little to make us full so we kind of don't need to control our hunger. Also, Sara is a great cook! She made pasta and rice and all sorts of food and groceries cost us like RM15 per person? And also, our hostel served breakfast.

But all in all, I think it's a safe bet to say you'd spend around 500 yen per meal. We were there for 7 days, so for 14 meals (lunch and dinner only), it's about RM300.

Total: RM300

TOTAL - RM3,165

AND I STILL HAD RM300++ to spare! But let's be honest here. I finished it all on shopping. LALALALALAlalalalalala~

So there you have it. I hope you too will be inspired to travel.


تغرب عن الأوطان في طلب العلى *** وسافر ففي الأسفار خمس فوائد
Leave your country in search of loftiness
And travel! For in travel there are 5 benefits,

تفرج هم واكتساب معيشة *** وعلم وآداب وصحبة ماجد
Relief of adversity and earning of livelihood
And knowledge and etiquettes and noble companionship

فإن قيل في الأسفار ذل ومحنة *** وقطع الفيافي وارتكاب الشدائد
If it is said that travelling brings humiliation and difficulty
And long journeys across deserts and toil and trouble,

فموت الفتى خير له من قيامه *** بدار هوان بين واش وحاسد
Then death is better for a person than him remaining
In a humiliating land between traitors and enviers

by Imam al-Shafi‘i


Love,
Sya.

  2. Salam kepada semua warga negara Indonesia, nama saya Yeyes Ristintares tolong, saya ingin membagikan kesaksian hidup saya di sini di platform ini agar semua warga negara Indonesia berhati-hati dengan pemberi pinjaman di internet, Allah benar-benar mendukung saya melalui kebaikan Ibu Ny. Helen Wilson. Setelah beberapa periode mencoba untuk mendapatkan pinjaman dari lembaga keuangan, dan ditolak, jadi saya memutuskan untuk mendaftar melalui pinjaman online tetapi saya ditipu dan saya kehilangan lebih dari 32 juta Rupiah dengan pemberi pinjaman yang berbeda setelah membayar beberapa biaya dan tidak mendapatkan pinjaman. Saya menjadi sangat putus asa dalam mendapatkan pinjaman, jadi saya berdiskusi dengan seorang teman saya yang kemudian memperkenalkan saya kepada Ny. Helen Wilson, pemberi pinjaman di perusahaan, jadi teman saya meminta saya untuk melamar dari ibu Helen, jadi saya memanggil keberanian dan menghubungi Ibu Helen.

    Saya mengajukan pinjaman 900 juta dengan tingkat bunga 2%, sehingga pinjaman itu disetujui tanpa tekanan dan semua pengaturan dibuat pada transfer kredit, karena fakta bahwa itu tidak memerlukan jaminan dan jaminan untuk pinjaman transfer saya hanya diberitahu untuk mendapatkan sertifikat perjanjian lisensi aplikasi mereka untuk mentransfer kredit saya dan dalam waktu kurang dari 48 jam uang pinjaman telah disetorkan ke rekening bank saya.

    Saya pikir itu lelucon sampai saya menerima telepon dari bank saya bahwa akun saya dikreditkan dengan jumlah 900 juta. Saya sangat senang bahwa Allah akhirnya menjawab doa saya dengan memesan pinjaman saya dengan pinjaman asli saya, yang memberi saya keinginan hati saya. mereka juga memiliki tim ahli yang akan memberi tahu Anda tentang jenis bisnis yang ingin Anda investasikan dan cara menginvestasikan uang Anda, sehingga Anda tidak akan pernah bangkrut lagi dalam hidup Anda. Semoga ALLAH memberkati Ny. Helen Wilson untuk membuat hidup saya mudah, jadi saya menyarankan siapa pun yang tertarik mendapatkan pinjaman untuk menghubungi Ny. Helen melalui email: (helenwilson719@gmail.com) atau Whatsapp: +1-585-326-2165 untuk Anda pinjaman

    Ada perusahaan palsu lain yang menggunakan kesaksian saya secara online untuk mencapai keinginan egois mereka, saya satu-satunya dengan kesaksian yang benar ini, harap berhati-hati terhadap orang-orang ini. Akhirnya saya ingin berterima kasih kepada Anda semua karena telah meluangkan waktu untuk membaca kesaksian sejati hidup saya tentang kesuksesan saya dan saya berdoa Allah akan melakukan kehendak-Nya dalam hidup Anda. Sekali lagi nama saya Yeyes Ristintares, Anda dapat menghubungi saya untuk informasi lebih lanjut melalui email saya: yristintares@gmail.com
