    Hi There! If you're looking at getting the JR Rail Pass, you'll need to have that before you get to Japan. This link http://www.japanrailpass.net/area_05.html#NORWAY has the authorized representatives in Oslo that you can contact. Unfortunately I'm not sure if there is a student discount, but if you get in contact with either one of those agencies they should be able to assist! :)

    http://www.japanrailpass.net/en/ The JR rail pass is what you will want. I believe you still must be outside of Japan when you purchase it and then pick it up when you get here, or if you buy it from a travel agency, I think you get it then. The website has all the information. It is a great deal because you are bound to spend more than it's cost on travel.

    It definitely sounds like the JR Pass is worth it for the trip you are doing. That's a lot of travel in 7 days! I hope you can see each place comfortably. Just one small thing to note about the Japan Rail Pass is that some classification of Shinkansen are not covered by it. For example, going to Hiroshima you can't ride the Nozomi shinkansen, which is the one with the least number of stops, but you can ride Kodama, Hikari and Sakura with the Japan Rail Pass. Regardless of this, for that distance, the JR Pass would surely be worth it.

Best products for dealing with ants?

Fellow City-Costers - I need your help! Living out in the countryside has its perks but spring has seen a bunch of ants wanting to take up residence in our house! What are your favorite products to keep the ants at bay? The less strong (but still efficient!) the products are, the better, since I've got 2 little ones and a pup to consider. Thank you!

Bus commuter pass?

I see people with a bus commuter pass and I'm wondering if there's any information online about this? (I can find a lot of information about the train tekken commuter passes.) I want to see the prices and if it's worth it for me to buy one. If it matters, I'm looking for Yokohama area ones... Keikyu bus or Kanachu bus. (or is there one for all companies?)

Lipstick Recommendation

I am Not a makeup girl. I like chapstick, maybe one with a little color in it. That's about it. I'm a natural type and would probably get lipstick onto clothes / cups so I've just avoided using it. I've been checking out the lipstick (and tinted chapsticks) sold in drugstores (usually under/around the 1000 yen price range) but don't know anything about make up. I want to get one pink (not too bright) light feeling lipstick. Any ideas? Are they all sort of the same at that price range? Local is better, but I noticed Shiseido's are over 2000 yen each. Is it worth it? Cruelty free gets bonus points.

Japanese Men psychology for dummies

So, I have a question to ask. Maybe a guy can answer better... Anyway, all help is very much welcome. Do Japanese men answer to texting when we (women) write melo./ cheesy texts? I'm kind of straight forward and I say things as I feel them but, my boyfriend, he doesn't answer it, he puts very pragmatic answers and it's kind of like he's avoiding them, like making a detour around it. He used to reply at first, he was never cheesy, just sweet. Then... no more!!! I wonder if I said or did something wrong. He says no. But I'm starting to doubt it! Like a 6th sense! What do you think?
