    • JR Kyoto to Brighton Hotel by Taxi

      Kyoto 2 hours ago

      Hi, can any one pls let me know how much does it cost by taxi from JR Kyoto station to Kyoto Brighton Hotel ? Also, if I stay in Brighton Hotel (travel partner of my travel agent), does the location of the hotel make local sightseeing very inconvenient given that it is not near the station ? Many thanks in advance.

      Fast ferry to Busan?

      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,

      Japan Dec 25, 2014 at 10:46 AM

      Hi

      For our honeymoon, myself and my husband are going to Japan for 13 days at the beginning of April. We fly in to Tokyo and would obviously like to spend a few days there but beyond that have no ideas as yet on where to explore.

      We will be travelling by train (or other local transport) and would like any advice on what to see and what to do whilst we are there. We would like to see some of the amazing places Japan has to offer, whether larger cities or more off-the-beaten-track, as well as any cultural events that might be of interest.

      Any ideas or advice would be much appreciated

      Thanks in advance

      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!

      Which Pass

      Hakone Mar 9, 2014 at 11:48 PM

      We are stopping for one night in Hakone to do the loop on the cable cars, lake, etc. We have our JP rail pass and are staying in Hakone at the Fujiya Hotel. So, we arrive about noon, spend some time in Hakone, next day do the loop, and then go back to Tokyo using our JP pass. Which of the passes is best for us, the Hakone free pass or the Fuji/Hakone pass? I thought I knew, but all the comments now have me confused. I do believe I purchase it there at the train station, right?

How much time would it take to do the roundtrip of all the activities from Shinjuku station and return to the same station? As per the website the recommended route is Shinjuku-Tozan train-cable car-ropeway-cruise-bus-Tozan train-Shinjuku.

      My wife and I are visiting Yokohama by cruise ship, arriving from China and docking at the Osanbashi pier in the late afternoon on Tuesday, April 30th and leaving the next day in the late afternoon. We would like to eat dinner Tuesday evening and lunch on Wednesday and would appreciate recommendations. We do not want a western meal - we are in Japan and want a Japanese meal. I realize that Osanbashi Terminal is close to Chinatown and that Yokohama's Chinatown is large but we will have been in China the previous week and would also like to avoid Chinese since we will have eaten many Chinese meals the previous week.

      Ideal spots for photography

      Yokohama Aug 24, 2012 at 12:05 PM

      I make somewhat of a living taking photos of scenery (no people) and selling at my local market back in Canada. The last time I was in the Yokohama area I went to Hasedera, Kamakura, Hakone, and Ofuna and took some awesome pics of the shrines and buddha statues, fall colors, etc. This time I am going to be at the Kanagawa Kenmin Hall in November (night concert) and have most of the day to browse some more ideal spots for photos (no people in them). If I've already done the sites mentioned, what other places can I go to to shoot some photos? I thought about Hakkeijima Aquarium but that might be a little far to go? I'm coming from Ueno. I'd like to feature fall colors and perhaps a night skyline before the concert if it's possible? Any other shrines with interesting buddhas or scenery?

      Am I the only sucker who fell for the 'Hakone Free Pass' and felt taken for a ride when my 3day 'free pass' ticket was swallowed by the exit machine at Sinjuku Station,, to my disbelief?? Coz I thot I had bought a 3day pass that would allow me to go back to Hakone tomorrow (the third day) since I had to go to the CA Embassy in Tokyo today!

      The lady did protest to the station official, just to be told that the 2-3day passes are meant tof 2-3 day stays in Hakone! And only entitled me to go from Shinjuku to Odawara once! So, when I came back yesterday I've used that trip and my next 2days' 'free pass' went down the drain!

      They even showed me an English translation to demonstrate they were right! But I was never told this by the Tourist Information lady at NRT! Anyone else fell for the same trick? Or was I the only fool? :(

      Seeking info regarding site of old Tokugawa era execution ground in Yokohama

      Yokohama Oct 19, 2010 at 3:33 AM

      Does anyone have any information regarding the exact location of the old Tokogawa era execution ground in Yokohama? A very macabre question I know, but perhaps apropos for the Halloween season. In a book I was reading, "Young Japan: Yokohama and Yedo" by John R. Black, the author writes about witnessing an execution sometime in the 1860`s in the Tobe area of Yokohama. Also a journalist in Japan in 1880 wrote a story about the execution ground. You can see the story here:

      query.nytimes.com/gst/abstra...

      I have been living in Yokohama for 4 years and was quite surprised to hear about this rather bleak part of Yokohama`s past. I figure there must be some kind of memorial, shrine or, at least a sign marking the site - but, thus far, no luck at all in finding it.

      Thanks.

      Day trip, maybe overnight trip

      Yokohama Oct 28, 2009 at 2:46 PM

      I will go from Norway to Tokyo medio Decembre this year. The trip will include a visit to Kirin, the foreigners graveyard and Yokohama Archives of hitory. Maybe the Ramen Museum as well. I am interested in food and drink history and the early Yokohama history.

      Are there other places I should consider to visit. Can I spend the evening in Yokohama and get back to Ueno rather late or should I try to get a place to stay in Yokohama. (I know one day in Y. is little, but will hopefully get back.)

      Kamakura - Sights and Opening Hours during National Holidays

      Kamakura Apr 5, 2009 at 7:51 AM

      Hi all,

      I was wondering if anyone could help me with the following:

      My visit to Tokyo is planned during the national holiday period (staying from 2 - 6 May) and during that time I would love to visit Kamakura. There are no tours available during the holiday period and I was wondering if anyone knows if the sights (temples, shrines, etc) will be open during this period.

      If so, I probably head over there myself and do some wondering around.

      Hope that someone can help me out with this issue.

      Thanks in advance!
