MONEY AND EXCHANGE
Meals are not included in the tuition. For a 4 or 5-day stay in Japan, you may want to exchange about 20,000-40,000 yen (about 180-360USD), to cover travel to/from airports, local trains and taxis, some of your meals, snacks, and souvenirs. Japan is cash-oriented but credit card is widely accepted at big restaurants, taxis and convenient stores. However, there are places in Tokyo that do not take credit cards. So, it is recommended to have some cash with you. This is a very broad estimate, though, and the amount of cash spent will vary from person to person. We accept credit cards at boutique .
There is no tipping in Japan. Service is always included. So, taxis, restaurants etc, just pay what is on the bill.
If you need a wifi hotspot during the program or while traveling, you may wish to order it in advance and have it ready for pick up at the airport. International SIM cards do not work in Japan. You will need to order a Japanese SIM card, which is also available at airports, if you bring an unlocked phone. Hotels generally have internet access available in each room.
