How expensive is it to visit Tokyo these days? I understand PPP indices and know all the tales of $200 melons and beef protectionism. But how much does the place actually cost? When I visited in 1992 I stayed in a small but comfortable business hotel, traveled by public transportation, ate sushi, and had a relatively cheap trip. Is that old mental picture of mine now a delusion? Should I instead focus my travel attention on the worst currency manipulators?
