Japan's mobile phone system is not compatible with most non-Japanese phones. This includes Blackberrys and tri-region phones. Make sure you don't get caught short by checking to see if your phone gives you a signal when you get off the plane. If not, you are able to rent a phone at the airport (it's easier here as you can return it just before you head home and the language barrier is not an issue).

Incorporating the Planetarium, the ScienceWorks museum in Melbourne brings a new slant on science... it's not boring, it's not drab, this museum of science brings excitement to this topic!
With hands-on exhibits, live demonstrations, tours, activities and shows, science has never been quite this much fun and also you can have fun exploring the mysteries of science and today's technology. It's a great place for kids too with lots of things for them. It's close to the CBD (1 km over the Westgate bridge) and parking is free.

Fantastic and immaculate display of technological widgets from an entire floor of valves to an exploded and suspended post coach. The highlight has got to be the three robots that greet you in the foyer. Geek heaven.
