Before departure, I went to "The Suitengu Shrine". I prayed to God for a safe travel. "The Suitengu Shrine" is near Tokyo City Air Terminal (TCAT, pronounced tee-cat). It takes only 2 minutes on foot.

1-4. Day Rooms, Don Muang Airport

We had reserved Day Rooms (Transit Room) at Terminal 2 before we left for Bangkok. However, they were already full. We had to move to another Day Rooms at Terminal 1 with other guests. Their costs were either 46 US Dollars or 1,400 Thai Baht per 4 hours. They accepted cash only (US Dollar, Thai Baht, or Japanese Yen, etc.). We were short of Thai Baht. We paid the rest on Japanese Yen. At 2:30 AM, We checked in.

 Go "Bedroom, Day Rooms"

The Room was clean. There was toothbrushes, shampoos, soap, and bath towels. I took a shower. We were so tired that we went to bed as soon as we lay down.
