Hello everyone. I just want to know which of the two hotels should i stay. Its our first time to travel to Osaka. I heard from reviews that both hotels are in good location in terms of shopping and taking the trains. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanx!
I'll be staying at Toyoko Inn Shijo Karasuma. I plan to travel to the hotel from Kyoto Station by subway Karasuma Line. May I know whether there is any elevator or escalator at Shijo Karasuma Station? We will have fairly large luggage...
Hello. Can someone tell me how far is the distance by walking from JR Namba to Namba Nankai station?
Hi guys, do you have any good recommendations for accommodation in Kyoto & Osaka area? My budget is USD $40-60(max) per night. For Kyoto, hotels are great but I would love to try the Ryokan type to experience the traditional Japanese style also accessible to Kyoto Station. And for Osaka, I prefer hotels somewhere around Namba or Dotonbori area and also easy access for everything especially transport. Thanks in advance! :)
hi I am wanting to go by train from Tokyo to the MOTOGP in motegi. can someone please help me out with what train line I need to take and what website to book the train through. or if anyone has a better way of travelling to and from the race track??? help????? please?????
I currently have a work visa. It will expire in January. After that, I want to travel in Japan for a week, then other places in Asia, and then possibly return to Japan to travel for longer. Where do I go to take care of all this? I live in Osaka.
My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to japan this july, and I am wondering if anyone know if it's possible to paraglide for tourists in Japan. We're traveling from Nagoya to Fukuoka, so preferably in a location somewhere between those places. We've never tried it before, so I guess it will have to be with some kind of paraglide school. I know it's a bit unusual question, but it would be really great to hear from anyone who has done it before, or know about a good school/location for us to try!
PS. I do speak some Japanese as I was an exchange student there 3-4 years ago, so we're not completely dependent on a English-speaking paraglide school.
I am travelling to Kyoto from around 12:00 on 12 June to around 16:00 on 14 June. I have never been to Japan, and I won't be able to enjoy it during the rest of my travel. What would be your suggestion to do/see to best discover Kyoto and Japaneese culture? I will already be staying in ryokan but I have no idea about the rest since it's so short trip.
Thanks in advance
Hi I'm visiting tokyo with my family for 5 days and would like to see, Asakusa temple, skytree, and considering going to hakone and m Fuji as day trips. I'm driving from Kobe (I live in Kobe). Is it better to stay in hakone and mt Fuji or to do day trips from tokyo?
Good afternoon all
I was wondering if you could help me, I have 19 days in Japan starting late July. Im dead keen on getting a bit of the urban experience but also spending some time in the wilderness, doing some cycling, preferably with a few temples thrown in too. Very keen to climb Mt Fuji too (even though ive read it can be disappointing). Ive attempted to accomodate all this in the below itinearry and would really appreciate your feedback. is it too much travelling time not enough in one place / completely daft (e.g by missing the highlights (Nikko / Hiroshima / kobe) in favour of a spot of cycling/trekking) I realise the route is a little unconventional, throwing in some little port towns instead of the traditional must sees and perhaps this is a mistake - please enlighten me.
Day 1 - 4: Tokyo
Day 4 - 5: Fly to Matsuyama (flights arent expensive at the mo), check out the castle and hot springs there.
Day 6 - 7: cycle up the Shimmaiko kaido --> overnight at one of the islands --> cycle on to onomichi , spend night there or Tomo.
Day 8: train to Kyoto, explore kyoto
Day 9 - 10: explore kyoto / nara?
day 11 - 12: Koya-san (stay in temple)
day 12 - 14: kumano kodo pilgrimage to nachi taisha / head to nagano and have a wander round the mountains (v open to suggestions here)
day 15 - 16: climb mt fuji
day 17 - 18: Find some sort of beach? Izu peninsula? Any ideas?
day 19: fly back.
Thanks for your help! Really appreciate it!
We are on our first visit to Japan in September. We will be taking a train from Hakodate to Sendai on 6th September. Would like to know whether it would be possible to make a stop-over at Aomori to visit the Sannai-Maruyama site. How much time would be necessary? Any suggestions will help us a great deal in planning our trip and make the most from our trip. Regards, Shree
Hello I am very interested in going to Japan, Aomori to experience Nebuta festival, can someone advise me when is the time to go and the exact date of Nebuta festival. Besides that what other places that I should go if I am there? I heard that the hotel booking must be made early as during this festival almost all hotels will be fully booked. Which airline is the cheapest carrier to travel as I am from Malaysia. I need more advise before I could start plan the trip and map the route. Thanking in advance for your help. Fern
Hi all I'm trying to find some fairly cheap accomodation during the Nebuta Matsuri festival 4 Aug on for about 3 nights...has anyone any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
