      Private Mt. Fuji 1 day Tour

      Japan Jul 20, 2014 at 9:46 PM

      Hi all

      I am looking for a company which operates private Mt. Fuji tour this coming December.

      My choices are limited because we require a different pickup and dropoff point. Furthermore, my pickup point is not in the main Tokyo area. In fact we are pretty near to Mt Fuji

      The Mt. Fuji tour date that we are looking at is 14 Dec 2014

      Pickup:
      Kozantei Ubuya
      富士河口湖温泉郷 湖山亭うぶや
      〒401-0303 山梨県南都留郡富士河口湖町浅川10

      At the end of the trip, we would like to return to:

      http://www.southerntower.co.jp/

      Hotel Century South Tower
      2-2-1 Yoyogi, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 151-8583, Japan
      Tel: +81 3 5354 0111 Fax: +81 3 5354 0100

      Please advise.

    • Gioji temple bicycle parking in Arashiyama?

      Japan Jul 20, 2014 at 9:27 AM

      Hello,
      I plan on renting a bike during my stay in Arashiyama.

      I'm planning on hitting:
      1. bamboo groves
      2.Jojakkoji Temple
      3. Gioji Temple
      4. Bike back to Saga Arashiyama

      I know that Jojakkoji temple has bicycle parking according kanko.city.kyoto.lg.jp/bicyc... , but I didn't see a parking lot indicated for Gioji. And Gioji is so far away, does anyone know if there's a place to legally park my bike near that temple?

      Also, with the bike, about how many hours would I need for this itinerary?
      We're planning at 3-4 hours, is this more than enough?

      Cheap Shinkansen Ticket

      Tokyo-to Jul 15, 2014 at 10:50 PM

      Hi I would like to travel from Tokyo to Nagoya using shinkansen. I read the normal price if i was to buy on the spot is about 10,300 yen.

      I read that i can get a cheaper one by
      1) Buying from travel agent such as JTB a day before. How much discount can i get for a tourist? and is there any JTB or travel agent shop inside Tokyo station?

      2) Buying from vending machine at Ticket shops. I just know the type of tickets available are limited. Is there any further info on this?

      I hope you can advice me.

      My bf and I will be arriving to Narita airport in mid December around 2pm on our way back to the USA. The outbound flight doesn't leave until the next morning at 11am. I was wondering if there is anything to do since the sun sets early in December? We would really like to experience Tokyo, but not sure if we will have enough time. We were also thinking about staying in a budget hotel in Narita near the airport or Tokyo, but find it daunting to figure out where the hotels are in relationship to the metro station in Tokyo. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hey guys! Please forgive my ignorance about this- but I was considering living in Japan for a couple of years, and I understand that it is very difficult. I am a dietitian, and I was born in Japan, IN Misawa- and I want to work inside the hospital on base. I just think it'd be neat to work where I was born, and get to know Japan a little bit.

      For residents, what do I need to know about trying to attain residency? For military if there are any, are there any requirements to work on base? Thank you! Any input is valued, even if it destroys my dream haha best to be informed.

    • No-visa stay limit/renewal

      Misawa Oct 4, 2011 at 2:01 AM

      Hi! I'm in the US Navy, stationed up here in Misawa, and my wife's paperwork for command sponsorship (indefinite stay permission) has been lost and resubmitting it will take longer than she has left on her 90-day stay limit, because she doesn't have a working/student visa. We're probably going to have to fly her to Korea and back to restart her stay-clock, which we are both a little terrified of, so we were wondering how long she needs to stay in Korea for it to reset her time in Japan.

      To sum up: How long does someone need to leave Japan for, in order to reset their no-visa stay-time?

      Any assistant will be greatly appreciated!!!
