Rooming Arrangements Rooming arrangements will be made when we have a room breakdown. n At all accommodation we have either 2’s or 3’s. n Students will be asked who they would like to share with but this usually needs to be negotiated. n
Spending Money 10 meals @ $16 = $160 n Ski Gear n General spending souvenirs $100 n Shopping n We are looking at collecting $300 per student and converting this into Yen, to be given out in Term 4.
Using ATM’s There is not an abundance of ATM’s in Japan so getting money can be a problem. n There are ATM’s in most 7/11 stores and there is one of these near our hotel in Hakuba and one on-site in our Tokyo hotel. n Your access card needs to have “cirrus” or “maestro” on back of card. n
Phones and Global Roaming If you take your own phone and allow global roaming you will build up an enormous phone bill. n All staff have a Travelsim which will allow phone calls and text messages – no data. Our phones must be unlocked from a network. n It is advised that students either don’t take their phone or change SIM cards. n
Safety Issues in General n At every site that we visit, we will establish meeting points. u One outside in case we are required to evacuate a location (fire) u One inside where we would expect students to meet up with us when necessary.
