    Hi there,

    Are the power plugs different in Japan? Will I need to buy a special adapter thingee in order for anything electronic to work. I hope this makes sense to someone.

    You'll need something to change from the angled prongs to straight.
    Most things these days will run 100V-240V 50Hz-60Hz. They should say on it what the input has to be.
    Also keep in mind japan doesn't have a grounding pin, so you'll need to go from 3 pin to 2 pin.

    As long as it doesn't look too heavy you should be ok with carry-on, just don't go nuts and put your 20kg of normal luggage in to your carry-on.
    Pity you don't get to go with Emirates - I think their limit is 30kg.

    If I get on, I'd probably just cop the charges and pay the extra, depending on the overall weight and what I packed.
    Thanks for the tip - I'm going to do a repack today and cut out what I don't really need and maybe put some more in carry on - for that I've only got a little pull along suitcase (that is within the measurements) and a over the shoulder laptop bag - am I allowed to have a back pack too?
