      Anyone traveling to Kyoto in November?

      Kyoto Aug 11, 2015 at 2:53 PM

      Hello fellow travelers!
      I am going to be traveling solo from USA to Kyoto from November 29th through December 5th (leaf peeping) and I wonder if somebody else is going to be traveling in the area to say hello and share some tea. I already have my hotel booked (that was many hours online, high season in Kyoto) and I am building my itinerary.

      Pleasant trips and arigato!

      Kyoto Aug 6, 2015 at 6:40 PM

      Hello,

      I've be traveling in Sep 15 to Kyoto & Osaka For an 8-day trip, so i'm pretty confused about which onsen experience to do. Firstly, any free onsen outdoor experience? And should i stay 2 days Kyoto & doing an outward trip to Kinosaki for a 2 nights stay before going to Osaka? Or should i just base in Kyoto Kawaramachi area, then do half day travel to either Kurama or Yunohana? Any suggestions for anywhere else nearby in Kyoto perfecture?

      Thank you! Appreciate your kind advice & tips as i am now planning the itinerary :P

    • How much money will i need to bring for 25days?

      Japan Aug 21, 2015 at 2:03 PM

      Hi, i'll be in Japan mid December -

      I'll be in Osaka 7 days, Kyoto 3 days, Tokyo 7 and Yuzawa 3. We are still deciding on our last location. Everything else has been booked and paid for.

      I was just wondering how much i may spend each day on food and transportation. A friend of mine lived in Tokyo for a year and she said i could survive on $20aud a day but i'll be most likely looking at $60-$100.

      A day in Takao Japan

      Kyoto Aug 5, 2015 at 7:39 AM

      Hi Kyoto experts
      I will be spending a month in Kyoto in November this year.
      Would like to make a day trip to Takao and visit these 3 temples :
      高山寺石水院 - Kozanji Sekisuiin
      Jingoji Temple - 神護寺, じんごじ
      and 京都 高雄)西明寺Saimyoji Temple
      I saw on Google map that there is a walking distance between temples but I wonder about public transportation between them.It looks on the map like I will have to walk on the main road, not very comfortable.
      Any ideas or tips for this day, where to start and how to make this trip easy

      Thank you

      Naomi.

      I am not sure about the Japanese names - Can you correct them ?

      We are arriving into New Chitose Airport at 8:20am and hoping to catch the 10:33am train to Shintoku. Where in the airport can we buy ekiben to have as lunch on the train? Would prefer to get here rather than at Minami Chitose Station since the transit time is only 10 minutes.

    • Help with 3.5 day Tokyo/Kyoto itinerary

      Japan Aug 23, 2015 at 3:56 AM

      Hello

      I have an upcoming 3 and a half day trip to Japan, and it will be mu first trip to Japan. I am flying into Tokyo, though am flying out of Osaka three days later.

      Day 1 - (Arrive Tokyo 4.05am)

      Day 2

      Day 3

      Day 4 - (Depart Osaka 4.20pm)

      I am trying to put together an itinerary. I would like to see Tokyo, and so envisaged spending day 1/evening 1 in Tokyo. However, I feel that I would like to spend the remaining time in Kyoto (the reason I booked the return flight from Osaka). I realise that this is a very short trip and that it is going to be very on-the-go. I envisaged catching one of the early bullet trains from Tokyo to Kyoto on the morning of Day 2, and then spending the rest of day 2, day 3 and the morning of day 4 exploring Kyoto. Does this seem feasible? I realise that the one day in Tokyo is a push, but as I won't have another opportunity to visit Japan for a very long time, I'm wanting to try fit in both cities.

      I would really appreciate some thoughts on this itinerary. I also have a few questions regarding the logistics of the itinerary. As I will be flying out of Osaka, it does not make sense to get a Japan Rail Card as I will only be taking the bullet train one way. What is the best way to arrange this one-way train ticket? Is it worth booking the JapanICan 3-day Kyoto train + hotel package from Tokyo, or is it preferable to book the accommodation in Kyoto independently and then purchase a one-way bullet train ticket by other means? Is it possible to buy a one-way bullet train ticket online?

      I look forward to receiving some thoughts on this, and thanks in advance for your time!

    • Luggage/Himeji

      by thelastvernon Online Now May 24, 2015 at 3:16 PM

      Hey, on the way from Osaka to Hiroshima I'm planning to spend the day at Himeji.
      I'm wondering what to do with luggage though.
      I've read the station has a few lockers but I was wondering about a backup plan if they are all full, other than forwarding luggage.
      Any ideas? So far my brother only has "leaving cases around so they get taken into lost property and then collecting them later". Inventive but risky.
      Thank you!
