      Hi there,

      My wife and I are travelling to Japan for the first time at the end of July / start of August. We've got 2 1/2 weeks where we're planning to travel most of the central and southern part of Japan (Honshu).

      We've got a plan to get to Fukuoka by train, and take the ferry over to Busan in South Korea, staying overnight there and returning the next day.

      Could anyone help me with any recent experience of the Beetle fast ferry I've heard about? How easy is it to book and are there any issues visa-wise with departing and re-entering Japan on a tourist visa?

      Many thanks,

      It's my first time to travel to Osaka with my daughter, and I have no clue how to begin this 6 day tour.

      1. Which area should we get a hotel to check in to? (I already have a reservation at Hotel Shin Imamiya Address: 1-2-20 Haignochaya, Nishinari-ku 557-0004; Area/City/Country: Tennoji/Uehonmachi/Osaka/Japan) Is this a good place and is the area convenient to most parks visited by tourists?

      2. We intend to visit Kyoto / Nara, should we stay 1 night in this area too? Or is it convenient to go back to our reserved hotel for the night if we will be visiting Universal Studios the next day?

      3. If we stay in that said area (Nishinari-ku) which should we visit first? Universal Studios or Kyoto/Nara?

      Your feedback would really help us decide a big bulk of our tour questions :) Thank you in advance!

      Mt. Fuji ascent

      by stamporama Online Now Jun 10, 2014 at 12:48 AM

      I plan to climb Mt. Fuji on the 4th week this July. As I'll arrive from Kyoto, I read that the closest jump off point is the Fujinomiya 5th station. Just a few questions for those who've climbed from here:

      1. I read that there are stores that rent out any gear (raincoat, walking poles, etc.) that you might need for the climb. Where exactly are they -- at the 5th station, or near the bus/train station?
      2. The Fujinomiya trail is said to be the shortest but steepest route. How steep -- the approximate grade or angle?
      3. After descending, I suppose anyone would be tired and dirty. Since none of the stations or huts have baths, where would be the nearest place to take a shower before riding back on the train? Or is there an onsen in the vicinity?

      Thanks for any replies!
