      Travelling to sightseeing spots around Fukui

      Fukui-ken 5 hours ago

      I am planning on visiting Fukui prefecture next month and it seems that there are many interesting places however they are quite dispersed from each other. How easy is it to travel in Fukui? Is there a sight-seeing bus or something similar? Thanks.

    • Hakone Free Pass... to buy or not to buy

      Hakone Apr 13, 2015 at 10:51 PM

      I am coming to Hakone in an all inclusive bus tour from Tokyo with my family of 4. After that I will be staying at the Gora Onsen Karakara for two nights. Do I still need to purchase a Hakone Free Pass?

    • Japan away from the big cities

      Japan Mar 25, 2015 at 9:26 AM

      Hello,
      We are going to Japan soon and want to experience some of the countryside. We have planned for two nights in Yufuin, Oita prefecture and one night in Hakone.
      We like mountains and hot springs, but I´m wondering if Yufuin and Hakone are very much like one another?
      Are both places just crowded with tourists?
      Does anybody have another suggestion if we want to experience some countryside living, preferrably between Kyoto and Tokyo or somewhere south of Hiroshima?
      Thanks for any advice!

      First Day Itinerary

      Tokyo Apr 12, 2015 at 5:23 AM

      I will be in Tokyo on a Sunday and will be coming in from Narita airport around 2pm. I would like to maximize my day so after check in I am thinking of going to:

      1) Meiji Shrine - I have read somewhere that it's closed on Mondays but the shrine's website says it's open daily. I also know that I can reach either via Metro (Shinjuku-sanchome station- Meijijingumae station) or JR Line (Shinjuku-Harajuku station). I'm confused on how to reach the shrine after I exit either of the 2 stations. Google shows that it will be a 25 min walk from either stations to the entrance of the Shrine. The website of Meiji Shrine says it will be a 1min walk to the South gate. Which is which? Also, is an hour enough to really enjoy Meiji shrine?

      2) Harajuku/Takeshita Dori - After I exit Meiji Shrine
      3) Omotesando- for Number Sugar/Omotesando Koffee/Crayon House (have their vegetarian buffet for dinner) Japanese food is my favorite! : )

      4) Shibuya - do I still have time? If I don't I can do this the next day.

      Will be visiting Tokyo on May17 and I would like to stay in Asakusa district. But I am having a hard time finding a non-smoking twin room. I am ok with a budget hotel as long as it is clean and in a safe area.

      2 Weeks in Japan

      Japan has never been on my travel radar so I've never really researched specifics. With 2 weeks to explore, what cities would you recommend exploring? Train travel a must. :-)

      Narita Airport to Tokyu Stay Shinjuku

      Tokyo Apr 11, 2015 at 1:11 AM

      To reach Tokyu Stay Shinjuku I will take the NEX to:
      1) Tokyo Station - transfer to Metro (Marunouchi line) - Shinjuku-Sanchome station - exit and reach hotel on 1 min walk.

      2) Shinjuku station which I believe is connected to Shinjuku-Sanchome. I am not sure how far a walk this will be. I will be bringing a luggage although wheeled and small size. Tokyo station seems daunting to a first-timer like me.

      Which is the better way?

      Is this how Japanese people address eachother?

      Japan Mar 29, 2015 at 1:45 PM

      I was watching "You Only Live Twice" and this Japanese agent kept calling Bond, "Bond Son". Is that considered respectful in Japan to address someone that way? What is the meaning of it?
