    • Tokyo-Hakone-Disney

      Tokyo Apr 24, 2015 at 3:26 AM

      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.

      Which is the better way?

      Anyone in Hiroshima to share experiences?

      Hiroshima Feb 14, 2014 at 10:01 PM

      Hi all,

      I am Johnnie, a 25 year old student from the Netherlands. I study Cultural Geography at the University of Groningen.

      I am in Hiroshima for 4 weeks right now as a tourist, student and researcher. I'm here on my own, mainly to explore the range of tourists' experiences, feelings and emotions while visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and vicinity. As a tourist, I'll also be experiencing the encounters at the Peace Memorial sites myself.

      The aim of my study is to understand tourists’ experiences in Hiroshima, as well as their potential changed meanings regarding war, peace and nuclear weapons after touring Hiroshima.

      While I'm here, I would very much like to get in contact with other tourists and share some of our experiences. That would help me a lot to better understand the impact of such a visit. Other than that, as a tourist, some company and socializing a bit would do me good while I'm here for 4 weeks.

      If anyone is in Hiroshima in February and would like to meet, let me know :) . Or e-mail me at j.j.meijer.4@student.rug.nl. Hope to talk to you soon!

      I dont know how big the place is and how to get around there. We will be two persons.
      How can I make a plan of what to do there and how to find out how to get there? We do not speak japanese.

      Can someone help me in telling me in which areas we should get a hotel (and where to book it online) and where to go?

      thanks and hoping to hear back soon. I believe I have to book a hotel room quick.

      Overnight stopover -- what can I see?

      I will have a stopover at HIJ airport soon on a weekday night, arriving at 2010 (have to do customs clearance) and then leaving at 0920 the next morning. Both flights are international and it's not possible to do online check-in.

      I'm looking at staying at a hostel near JR Hiroshima station, and taking the airport shuttle to get there and then back to the airport the next morning, which should take about 1 hour each way.

      Or, is there any non-smoking place (McDonald's or Internet cafe) where I could spend the night? Capsule hotel would also be an interesting option, if anyone knows of any that take female guests.

      Will I be able to do any sightseeing at all? Or, at least try the local okonomiyaki? I'm just trying not to make it a trip where I see nothing apart from the airport, accommodation, and airport transport!

      Miyajima Nov 30, 2009 at 9:50 PM

      Hello,

      I am planning to go to Miyajima with my bf this month, staying for 1 night. What do you guys think about staying on the island? Which is the best hotel for value of money? For hotels on the island, can we still book dinner but not stay there? Which hotel would have best food or worst?

      Here's my short list. What do you think?

      1) Morinoyado morinoyado.jp/english/index.... (a bit far from ferry station)

      2) Coral Miyajima HOtel (on the mainland). This is very cheap, 4000Y per person discounted, there is a restaurant in the hotel that appears to be quite cheap, but would not have the traditonal jap experience I guess
      hotel site: http://www.coral-hotel.co.jp/price.html

      3) Jyukeiso gambo-ad.com/miyajima/englis...

      4) Karaguchi www4.ocn.ne.jp/~kawaguti/kya...

      Is the dinner over on the island worth it? I'm also going to Kyoto, should I try Kaiseki dinner there? I would only want to try one dinner, can't afford both.

      Hi,

      I'm planning a day trip from Kyoto to Hiroshima and then going to Miyajima Island.

      As my time will be tight, hoping to arrive by 10:30am and must leave on the 19:51 train, can anyone help with how best I should spend my time at these places? My initial thoughts are:

      Hiroshima

      Peace Park
      A-Bomb Dome
      Hiroshima Castle
      Museum

      On Miyajima
      -----------
      Itsukushima Shrine
      Take ropeway to the top of Misen Mountain

      Having looked into Miyajima further, it seems there's more to do on it than I originally thought.

      What should be seen and what can be left out?

      How long should I aim to spend at each place?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      is there a tram line/subway/bus that goes from city center all the way to the hotel or its proximity that i can catch to and fro? (perhaps the first and last tram timing?)
