Docomo data usage.

Does anyone know how bad it is when you seriously go over your data usage?

    Make sure you disable the "Speed mode"(スピードモード) in your data plan! When your data usage is more than your data plan, you will enter slow mode, which is unlimited to use but limited to 128kbps speed. If you enable "Speed mode"(automatically add 1GB data package option non-stop) or manually buy an optional 1GB data package (1000 yen), you can use it at normal speed.

    Once you go over your data plan, your speed will be limited to 128kbps(Maximum). The real world data usage will be more more like 56kbps, the speed will be like using a dial up modem you have 10 years ago. Take a minute or two to load one page, if you are visiting a webpage that have a lot of images then it may take even longer.

    Do they charge you extra?

    You can pay for extra data speed. That's why it's always a good idea to look out for the "docomo wifi" sticker outside shops and restaurants so you can leech on their wifi rather than draining out your data.

    I guess I should have clarified. Should I expect an insane phone bill?

    Oh my gosh... my next bill might be scary...I don't even know how to change the speed. Thank you so much for your help!

    I suggest to request for a limit on your data plan. And once you reached your limit you can still access you internet but if you need more data you can just purchase it online.

Your best buys for keeping your house dry in summer?

We're going to likely be house sitting for family in Tokyo this summer - at least for a couple of weeks - which means that we're not going to be here in Niigata and able to be emptying our dehumidifiers constantly. Do you have any amazing products (even better if you have Amazon links for me!) that don't need you to be physically present to draw that moisture out of the air? The last thing I want is to come back to a sticky, sweaty, moldy house! Thanks in advance!

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!
