I got a one year scholarship in Sapporo. I can get in the dormitory starting on september 18 but I'm can buy an air ticket almost two weeks before that but they won't pay my expenses during this period.
Since I will be loaded with my luggage I was thinking about staying near Tokyo for these two weeks since there is a lot to see and do there and on 16 I will leave to Sapporo passing through Mito, Oarai and Tomakomai using this http://www.sunflower.co.jp/english/ferry/campaign/story/index.shtml
Since I won't be receiving my scholarships at that moment I was thinking about trying sleeping on internet cafes and couchsurfing (not only for the costs but also for the experience) maybe camp a day or two, but probably I won't have time for that.
Are there non-smoking internet cafes?
Are the common?
What about places where you can leave large luggades? I heard that are becoming less common.
I'm planning to buy a foldable bicycle to use as transport associated with trains and them take it to hokkaido with me. What do you think?
I was thinking about ordering some stuff online to use in Japan. Would it be rude to do it when I'm on someone's house? (like while couchsurfing).
I wonder if you can get in with a back pain patch.
