Best seats are R stand or any upper level on the main straight, u can see across to the pits.. cheaper alternative is on the S bends, u can see a great stretch of track. A fri sat sun ticket for say R stand is about 450 USD- – directly on the start line u will pay abt 1,000 USD for the w/end pass.
Keep in mind friday is actually free…..
Hotels or Ryoken ( jap small hotels ) near the track are impossible to book. Suzuka circuit has a small hotel that alot of drivers and team principles stay at, u wana stay there? try 2 nights @ 3,500 USD for a budget style hotel that is right@ the track. It has a small bowling alley u may catch a game with Vettel, seriously……guests only may visit….
Alternate and most common is to stay at a larger hotel think marriot hilton etc in nagoya.
The bastards dont usually let u book until a few months out from the race and still charge top doller.
Nagoya is a 1 hr train ride to suzuka. U can catch 1 of 2 train lines. Shiroko station is a 15 min cab ride to the track, about 20 USD for the trip. the other is pretty much called suzuka circuit station and is a 20 min walk from the track..
U can camp in farms around the track but need permits, **** knows how to get one.
Ive been going to the japanese f1 for the last 3 years straight, im aussie but my wife is japanese and doesnt like f1 so i usually go alone…..
