    • Tokyo-Hakone-Disney

      Tokyo Yesterday

      Hi, I will be travelling to Tokyo with young kids. Is it too adventurous to try to go to Hakone and stay a night in a ryokan from Tokyo then come back the next day to check in to a Disney hotel? this is assuming I use Takuhaibin to send our baggage from the Tokyo hotel to Disney and then travel light to Hakone. Will it still be challenging with young kids?

      Thanks for any advice!

      Superstores & Discount stores in Tokyo

      Tokyo Apr 20, 2015 at 3:23 AM

      Hi,
      Are there any large supermarket style superstores in Tokyo that sell a varied range of goods - I'm thinking of stores similar to Walmart in the US or Tesco in the UK, I realise that these type of stores might be on the outskirts of the city, but If it is close to a subway or train station that would be great
      I'm not looking for anything in particular, I just wan't to have a look around at the different products available in Japan.
      Also, are there any other large discount style shops - similar to the large Don Quijote store in Asakusa.
      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.

      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.

      Yoro-Keikoku Valley Gorge Ravine

      I'll be back in Japan in November on another photography tour and this time my path leads me to Mt Yoro and the valley area by Yoro-Keikoku station (1 day hike). The best website for info is in Japanese, mainly. I can access a couple of pages but need a little help. I want to know how to access the trails from the station. Since there are apparently many, and I have time to only choose one or two, which ones would be the best to attempt in mid-November? Also, where is that red bridge with the 2 humps? And, which onsen can I try out for a couple hours after my hike? Do I need to bring supplies like towels, yukata, soap, etc? Is there any type of hiking trail map online (with or without english, as long as it shows where the onsen and bridge are?). Thanks!

    • Getting to the Narita Hilton from Tokyo - should we go to Narita town or Narita airport?

      Narita Mar 30, 2010 at 6:55 PM

      Hi! We are going to have our first ever trip to Japan this July - just 6 days on the way between NZ and the UK.

      We will be spending our last night in Japan at the Narita Hilton to make our morning international flight easier.

      We will be coming up from Kyoto and I was wondering whether we would be better to go to Narita airport on the Narita express, or to go to Narita town? We will have a JR pass. The Hilton apparently have a free shuttle both from the airport and from Narita town which goes to the train station there - but I am not sure whether it goes as frequently from Narita town as it might do from the airport.

      Can anyone help?

And so, if i do take this bus does that mean that for every stop I take like getting off to visit the temple, i'll have to wait for another one to go to the mall and then finally take a bus from the mall(since i'll be shopping) to the airport? And last question, is this bus crowded - if it is,i'll be planning to leave early so that I wont missed my flight. I hope I can get some help, and hear from anyone soon. Thanks.
