Singapore dollars? Yes. S$500 is about 37500 yen. Hotel 3000 Akihabara is 3000 yen per night. 3000*7 =21000. Meals daily could be under 1500 yen. (Yoshinoya for less than 500 yen and onigiri/sandwiches in convenient stores 120 yen. (Tap water is safe to drink in Japan). 1500*7 = 10500. Train tickets average 500 yen a day, less if you are willing to walk. 500*7 =3500. Total: 35000. You still have 2500 yen left to buy your Tokyo Banana souvenir for family and friends.

Not really. Not if you want to enjoy it. The answer above only covers travelling in Tokyo, not Japan! Try Couchsurfing / Tatami Timeshare for accommodation options, or you can sleep in Internet Cafes or in overnight Karaoke booths as a cheaper option than hotels. (or if you're hard enough, then you can sleep on overnight 'sleeper' buses and trains, and spend the money on travel instead of accommodation!). Try Air B and B or Housetrip for accommodation too. I would recommend you explore one area of Japan, e.g. Tokyo 2 nights, Yokohama and on to Kamakura for 2 nights, Izu Hanto onsens down in Atami and Shimoda for 2 nights and then back to Tokyo to fly out. You'll get a taste for what most of Japan can offer and won't spend your whole time on the road. But to enjoy a week in Japan, I'd recommend more like Singapore $800 at least. It just depends on what you want to do. almost 2 years agoAnswered by Tobias via WorldNomads.com
