Departure: Dresden – 09:25
Over: Zurich -> Munich
Arrival: Tokyo (Haneda) – 15:49
Bites me why i chose such a complex route to fly to Tokyo. Even the Check-In Lady had a big grin on her face when she saw my adventurous flight plan. Although my Japanese was quite limited the passport control after arriving in Tokio went smoothly and i got my Residence Card right away.
The DKB Visa Card allowed me to withdraw money easily and with the help of local Customer Service i could identify a route to the rendezvous point with my flatmanager. Although at some point temporarily baffled by the Tokyo train line complexity and lack of language i could arrive at my destination on time and received to keys to my room:
Address: 2-1-23 Tokyo Taito Ikenohata
Costs: ~550€ / month
Although i could have also chosen a student dormitory which would be more spacious (+10sqm) for the almost same amount of money, i chose this sharehouse because it is located more centrally.
Exciting and educational months will await me from here on out.
