  1. Peetan it was DiGriz who mention twin room try looking at best available price Correct, the Metro chain is considered 4 star but this Metro is house in the Sepia Tower. The Sepia tower is built using old and new Japanese building methods. Using the old counterweight system used in Japan's centuries old Pagoda and the latest concrete building methods of that time. If it was built to international standards of the same period, it would have collapse on 3/11. That why this particular Hotel is worth a extra star. I was in the Sepia Tower on the 34th food when the .9 quake hit at 2.45pm on the 3/11. If you do not think staying in a earthquake proof building so that your family are safe in a earthquake prone City is not worth a extra star then you are entitled to your opinion be it a bad opinion at that. You must be new to this forum because most users of this forum known the history between Tubby, Pie and myself. Tubby voiced his opinion at my comment. My comment contain advice on where to stay at for a bargain price. Tubby comment on my advise So who is doing the so call trolling. Do you want ban Tubby as well. Anyway I think Tubby can bat for himself. You just hold up your end. As for my nationality I don,t think anyone cares. I know I don,t Your welcome to think that pointing out a well known trait is considered discriminative. The majority of Scottish people are very proud of being frugal. Judging by Tubby reply, it is Tubby who is offended by this fact. If I apologise to Tubby I would be offering the Majority of Scottish people. So I suggest, build a bridge and both get over it.
  2. I assume the word "whole" means a single amount and the word generations is plural which means more then one. Can you used those two word in the same context? I thought my English was bad but I am Australian. What is your excuse and you teach the subject. Perhaps you need censoring and apologise issued then dismiss from trying to teach English. $180 for 5 star accommodation in the middle of Tokyo to most people is a bargain. Compare to other Major Cities for 5 star accommodation you be looking at $450 plus.
  3. If you do change jobs don,t became a pretend Enghish teacher, teaching your bad english to Japanese children.
  4. Nose in Japanese is Hana, Hana also means Flower and it is also used as a japanese girls name. You have the the symbol correct but do you know how to structure a sentence in Kanji. Like Hana has a big nose or What is the cost of akura. Would you understand it. I do not think you can. Why? because you make up shite and your full of it
  5. No I am not winding up. I am Shite at both English and Japanese but I don,t pretend like others
  6. "I kind of wish he was much cleverer" ! Seem like your own language is a challenge for you. It should be "more clever" . Cleverer? is there such a word. Like I said before. You make up Shite and your full of it!!
  7. Do you live in Japan? You don,t know of much about even the simple things that a person would know after living here for the amount of time you say you have. You are a full of it. Shinkansen means Super Express Not New super express. Shi means City. Shinsen na means new or fresh. You just make up shite and your are full of it. Do you live in Japan or just pretend too.
  8. How deep are your pockets and how short are your arms? that right your Scotish
  9. Where's "Shi-Myokokogan", John-San? Still Getting built, You live in Japan, don,t you. How the F%$# do you get around if you don,t know that Shinkansen has a own Platform (Shi) or station. So what would you do if you were to travel to say Yokohama from Tokyo on the Shinkansen. Wait for it to pull up to Yokohama. It won,t . It will pull up at Shi Yokohama and you will end up at Shi Odawara, Tubby !
  10. From $180 a night the Metro is a bargin. It is a 30 meter walks to the elevator (on the 24 floor of the Sepia Towers) from the Nihonbashi entrance (Tokyo Station North entrance) . They will store your bags but why cart your bags around Japan. Black Cat will pick up from your Hakuba Hotel take it to Narita for about $25 per bag. You have to put the frogs in their own room. The room will be very uncomfortable with 4 people
  11. I would start the stint in Takayama (Gifu) because it a good bet that it will rain during the last week of Feb and the first week of March in Hakuba. Nagano Prefecture has great snow other then just Hakuba. Use your skill of Japanese to negotiate deals. Don,t settle for the first price. That time of year the snow industry is very competitive. So It is smart to ask. Use Japanese sreach engines not english for researching for accommodation and travel requirements prior and while in Japan. Your English will come in handy while staying in Hakuba and Niseko. Both places are over run with English speaking foreigners.
  12. Thank for the feedback Pie,s
  13. Hi Little J try this link http://japan-wireles...TYcUaAizd8P8HAQ You get a pocket WiFi with unlimited Data use for $3 a day. The reception is not has good as Softbank or Docomo but reasonable. You can used your FaceTime, Facebook Messager or Skype to call home. You can call any Japan phone number with your credited Skype account even if they are have not downloaded the Skype software. If your Japanese it cost Y 5000 a month with unlimited data use. Also can use up to ten devices so if your in a group you can all use it and share the cost.
  14. Yes Tubby but it will not have any results
  15. This just go to show that my assessment of the at least 15% of australian are bigots is not far off. I see it all the time coming from intelligent people of Australian decent (if you can refer to them as such) to the bogan element. It ingrain in our society and classing ourselves as a multicultural is a bad joke. No apologise will be issued.
