Going to or from Narita airport and want to freshen up?

Did you know they have shower rooms and day rooms at Narita airport for rent? The shower cubicle as they call it is available for rent. The cost is 500 yen per half an hour, not too bad considering you get to use their towel, soap, shampoo, conditioner and hair dryer! The day room which comes with bed and shower is only 1000 yen (single) per hour and depending on the size, costs half the price every extra hour. Not a bad deal especially if you don't want to smell like major B.O. and there are some out there who need it more than others...especially those who smell like chicken soup >_>; Check it out! Here's the link.

Happy (B.O. free) travels!

Travelling by bus in the Hokuriku...Kanazawa to Tokyo and back.

So want to visit Tokyo or are going to Narita Airport? Well you have 3 choices for buses. 1. JR buses...expensive 2. Hokutetsu highway buses, also expensive 3. Willer Express / Star Express buses. I just found out about #3 today and it was about 2300yen cheaper! Plus if you book more than one seat, you get 50yen off for each additional one (bulk savings lol). The website link is below...and it's offered in English, Japanese, Korean and Chinese. They also give you the option of paying with a credit card or at a convenient store. :) The only bad thing is that from Kanazawa they only go to Tokyo so you need to take another line to get to the other parts of Japan. :(
