1. The most beneficial way to make international phone calls is to use special pay phones, which can be found close to public transport stops, major shopping centers and government agencies. These phones are operated by credit or special plastic cards.

Make sure to check the compatibility of the appliances that you plan to take before the trip. You may need special adapters. Some hotels have adapters that are available upon request, or you can purchase them in any special store.

Credit cards of the international class, such as VISA, American Express, MasterCard, Japanese Credit Bureau, Dinners Club and Discover are accepted virtually everywhere.
5. Shops and shopping centers open no later than at 9:30 am and serve visitors to5:30 – 6:00 pm. Some large shopping centers are closed much later, at 9:30 - 10:00 pm. During the daytime some shops can close for a small lunch break. Saturday and Sunday are considered the days off. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

In small restaurants and cafes tips can be 15-18% of the total, and in prestigious restaurants their amount will be at least 20% of the total bill.
