Japan has had many years of deflation, and it will have even more. Today Oslo is the most expensive but I am sure that Moscow will be the most expensive one in 3 or 4 years.

Norway is OK for a vacation as long as you are a multi-millionaire. If you do not have thousands of dollars to flush down the toilet, I would suggest looking
for another spot like Mexico or Canada.
A $2.00 dollar six pack of beer will be a lot more in EXPENSIVE Norway. There are much nicer and cheaper places to see in the USA. Check out the Rocky Mountains or the Grand canyon.

Interesting fact, I didn’t realize Japan was number one on this list all of these years.
