    • 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!

    • What to see - 5 days in Kyoto by bicycle?

      Kyoto Mar 14, 2015 at 1:28 AM

      Hi, me and my husband will be spending 5 days in the city of Kyoto (it will be our first time in Japan).
      Our BnB is in Minami-ku, Kyoto Prefecture. They offer us two bicycles to drive around.
      Are there any bike tours that we can plan ahead and which places can we reach in a day ride?
      Are there some rules that we have to consider when riding bicycles?
      What about finding repair stores and parking lots?
      Thanks for your advice...

    • What area / street in Tokyo is this? (see image)

      Tokyo Mar 3, 2015 at 2:50 AM

      Hi,

      I went to Tokyo a couple of years ago and took this photo (attached). I've now made a big acrylic painting of it and now I want to know the name of the street, or at least the area.

      Can somebody help me? I remember there was an indoor food market quite close to this and I think I bought some good sake bottles in this area as well.

      Suggestion On 6-Day Itinerary

      Osaka Mar 15, 2015 at 10:38 AM

      Would anyone be kind enough to suggest a 6-day itinerary in Osaka for me. Any suggestion will do without prejudice to any interests in particular. Travel date would be from 14-21 Nov 2015. I had Kyoto covered, so I will pass on any adjacent town/city such as Kyoto/Nara/Kobe and such. Just strictly on Osaka.

      Cheers now :')

      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?

      Nihonji Temple

      by SandiM Online Now Feb 19, 2009 at 1:32 PM

      I am going on a 1-week photography trip to Tokyo. I have photographed the lovely magaibutsu Buddhas of Usuki a couple of years ago, which turned out great. Now, I have heard of a cliff carved Buddha in the Chiba area at Nihonji Temple. I have a JR pass, and wondered how I can get to this temple to photograph this Buddha and the carved Jizo. Can someone confirm that the closest station is Hamakanaya? And the cableway will be operational in early April? I need to visit the temple for a few hours and then get back on the train to go see a concert in Chiba town. Thanks!

    • Home-stay in Chiba

      by bunnyhunny Online Now Dec 6, 2006 at 8:40 PM

      Hi all,

      My hubby and myself are planning to go to Japan either in May or July 07. As we're not the sort who's entirely into shopping, we're hoping to do something a bit more different. I have been told that a home-stay with a local family would be great because of the cultural exchanges involved (of course it is likely that we'll have to stay with a family that speaks at least some English; me and hubby can't speak conversational Japanese).

      Does anyone have any idea if there are local families in Chiba who are host families? Who would be willing to host a couple (We're from Singapore) for approximately 2 weeks or so?

      Thanks in advance for any suggestions or leads. Or perhaps you can point us in the right direction?

      :)
