      Flights to Japan from Kamchatka

      Japan Nov 22, 2015 at 7:59 AM

      Hallo peeps,
      I am planning trip to Russia on the transibirian, catching train from Helsinki via St Pete's to Moscow to Vladivostok, than I found flight from Vladivostock to Petropavlosk-Kamchatskiy and exploring Kamchatka for couple of weeks. From there we want to fly to Japan, Sapporo preferably and after spending week there, fly home.
      My plan looks good on paper but now I have a problem, it seems Aeroflot do not fly from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy to Japan.
      And anybody of you lovely peeps give me idea how I can get to Japan from KamĨatka ( plane, boat) without going back to Vladivostok or anywhere else?
      Many thanks!

      P.S same question is posted on Russia forum too

      Tokyo trip for 7days

      Tokyo Nov 10, 2015 at 8:00 AM

      I needed some tips for my Virgin Tokyo trip end of the month.
      1) should I get a nex , suica or pormo card for my travels in Tokyo or it would be better savings for me to get the JR pass since il be using it for my 3days trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen ?
      2) will I be able to use the JR pass for the public transportation in Tokyo such as the metro n buses?
      3) or would it best for me to just purchase a single return trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen?
      4) is it advisable to take an airport bus or express to my hotel (CERELEUN TOKYU HOTEL)?
      5)any tour websites that I can buy Disney sea/land at a much affordable rate?

      Driving to and around Hakodate

      by marko4257 Online Now May 3, 2009 at 6:32 PM

      Hi, Need some advice here. We are considering driving to Hakodate. Is it difficult to get parking places when moving around in town? How are the parking rates like?

      We will be staying in Chikuba Shinyotei which is not accessible to public transport. If we do not drive are there alternative modes of transport besides taxi, how are taxi rates like?

      We were initially thinking of taking the super hokuto from Sapporo to Hakodate, but we are concerned that the train do not have space for our luggage. Any idea about this? Thanks.

      Driving in Hakodate

      by akikonomu Online Now Mar 12, 2007 at 8:50 PM

      Dear travellers

      We intend to do a 3 day driving tour around Hakodate looping west along Route 278 and returning from Onuma and would appreciate some tips on the below.

      1) Are there any points of interest along the route that are must-visits?
      2) Any good places we can stop for the nights along the way?
      3) We're used to left hand drive which will be opposite the Japanese system. Any difficulties foreseen?

      Many thanks for any suggestions or tips.
