I did prepare a large folder with information found it either on the Internet but most the comments from people like me posted on the Trip Advisory. I have a long the list “to do” and ‘not to do’, day trips, half a day trips, and much more. The hardest part is how cash I should carry? I still have hard time how much yen I should carry? Top Priority enough cash to get around no shopping at my age of 66 no need much just to be fit to walk, food so so.
Now, very important question what can I bring from Canada as a gift and thank you to my Jananese friend. I meet her as she came 4 times to Toronto never meet her husband. Any suggestions? Much appreciated. I hope to hear from you as my trips are getting easier for over 10 years very successful because of you (TA). I always post my experiences and posting on the TA to help others. Thank you.
