    First, Bali is in Indonesia. It's Bangkok in Thailand.

    I have visited Seoul, Tokyo and Bangkok. In terms of cost, possibly Bangkok is the cheapest. I find Seoul nice and leisurely. Last visited Tokyo 14? years ago. Find it to be a bit rush at that time. People are not very friendly possibly due to language barrier.
    Prefers Osaka.

    Indeed went to Tokyo last December after so long.
    Visited Odaiba, an interesting artificial made town in Tokyo Bay. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odaiba#Attractions Went to Toyota showroom in one of the shopping complexes (can't remember which one). There is an interesting exhibit whereby for environment, cars could be made of wood in future.

    Is it safe to travel alone?

    I am a male. I have not travelled alone. But I have gone on business trips alone to cities like Kathmandu, Jakarta, Hanoi. Logically, if one take some caution, it should be safe. e.g. use public train/bus instead of one-to-one taxi service; do not venture into quiet lanes, do not accept drinks/free rides from strangers (male/female alike).
