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!
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
we will take the train from Kyoto (9.33am) arriving at Tokyo at 12:10.
Any idea at which station we have to get off?
and how will reach OAK HOSTEL ZEN from there?
address of the hostel: 110-0003 Tokyo Prefecture, Taito-ku, Negishi 3-3-3
have in mind we will have JR pass.
Hi Kyoto experts !
What are the benefits of the prepaid Icoca card if I use it while I am in kyoto. ?
Will it save money on trains going from kyoto to nearby cities? Is it limited in time ?
Also: What is the all day discounted ticket to Arashiyama ?
we arrive at Kansai aiport at 21.35.
1)how much time we need to go through customs, take luggage and catch the train to Kyoto.
2)Will it run at that time? (on saturday night)
3)will we be able to exchange our JapanRail voucher with the pass at that time? where?
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.
Hey, I will be in Hokkaido for the period 26 Nov to 3 Dec. I'm planning to visit Otaru and thereafter go to Mount Tengu via the ropeway on Sunday, 29 Nov. Just wondering whether the ropeway is available for service and the opening hours.
Thank you very much.
Hi, i'll be in Japan mid December - January and have no idea what to pack. I'm a girl from Australia, so i've never really been in cold weather before.
I'll be in Osaka 7 days, Kyoto 3 days, Tokyo 7 and Yuzawa 3.
I'm hoping to start buying clothing soon so and i have no idea where to start.
arriving from Kyoto, check in at 13.30 (we're near Uguisudani Station) and then:
Meiji Shrine > Takeshita Dori > Shibuya Crossing & Hachiko Statue > Shinjuku
Tsukiji Fish Market > Hamarikyu Gardens > Akihabara / Ginza
Asakusa > Sensoji temple > Ueno Park
flying back home
1)what do you think about the itinerary? should we skip something or add more?
2)should we use single tickets, day pass or Suica card? the first day we will use JR line as our JR pass will still be valid, but what about the 3 days after?
3)any suggestions for 4th day? no long day trips as we will do a lot of them the previous days around Kyoto
what prices should I expect in Kyoto & Tokeyo on daily base?
how much is coffee/cappucino/beer in a regular cafe
some food prices on budget eateries? fast food options? bakeries? anything on supermarket maybe? I've heard about some nuddle cups, any idea what's the cost for them?
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 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!
