1. Airasia plane ticket two ways IDR 3.800.000 (include baggage) for 1 person. I bought this ticket on February 2014 for travel on November 2014. Waiting for long time and I have to pay directly at the time I made the reservation.
2. Hotel/ Hostel/ Guest house
Since I don’t have much money and I would not spent my whole day at the hotel, so I booked budget hotel/ hostel/ Guest house. But of course, I still see the rating, and guest comments before I made reservation.
Kyoto - Ryokan Ohto Kyoto 26000 Yen for 2 nights
Tokyo - Shinjuku City Hotel NUTS Tokyo 29200 Yen for 2 nights
Mt. Fuji - K’s guest house Mt. Fuji 9900 Yen for 1 night
Tokyo - Sakura hostel Tokyo 42900 Yen for 3 nights
Osaka - Shinsaibashi Lions Rock 40500 Yen for 3 nights
The price are for 3 people.
you also have to try at least 1 night at hotel/hostel with tatami style, it was so unique, nice, and warm inside.
I made reservation in Booking.com. In here, you could make reservation and no need to pay at the same time. Cancellation fee would be charged if you cancel the reservation close to the date, example Day-7, but the policy is different for each hotel.
So you can make booking of distant days, and still had the opportunity to cancel if you find hotel with better quality and price. I pay hotel with cash when check-in process.
