      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?

      Fukuoka Jan 11, 2015 at 4:52 AM

      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,

      Ingmar

      Osaka in April 2015

      Osaka Jan 7, 2015 at 7:44 PM

      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!

    • 85 minutes in transit from international flight to domestic- Can I make it?

      Japan Jan 14, 2015 at 2:07 AM

      On my return from vacation in the US to Japan I'm flying United from Dulles IAD to Narita-Tokyo then Fukuoka. The domestic 2nd leg is operated by the codeshare partner ANA wings. I'm a foreign student in Japan holding a Vietnamese passport. I'm worried if 85 minutes in transit at Narita is enough for me to go through customs, luggage recheck, security and stuff before I can board the plane to Fukuoka? Thanks in advance

      Better area to stay - Korinbo vs Omicho Market?

      by Melanie_Putra Online Now Jan 19, 2013 at 7:41 PM

      Four of us ladies will be visiting Kanazawa for 3 nights and deliberating between staying at either the Toyoko Inn Korinbo or a ryokan near the Omicho market (Sumiyoshiya). Would anyone be able to tell me which location is better in term of accessibility, surrounding places to eat in the evening, prettier, etc? We plan to visit most of the attractions from the Higashi Chaya District down to the Nishi Chaya District.

      Toyoko Inn is cheaper at ¥3433/pax/night with breakfast (Sumiyoshiya charges ¥4900/pax/night w/out breakfast), and is in a modern shopping district with easy bus access. However, its room is really small in comparison to the ryokan. The ryokan also of cause has more charm. I would like to know whether it is worth the additional cost of the ryokan? Wouldn't want to spend more for the ryokan just to discover that the immediate vicinity in the evening has nothing to offer and the surrounds aren't as nice as Korinbo.

      Secondly, Read that the bus services stop pretty early. How is the walk between Toyoko Inn Korinbo and Kazuemachi Chaya District at night? Is it an interesting walk or we go pass dark, quiet and dull places? This is in incase we decide to stay at Korinbo. One of the days we plan to visit Kazuemachi Chaya District at dusk since I heard that it is beautiful at that time. If we have dinner around there we may miss the last bus back to Korinbo. Thus, wondering if it is ok to walk? I know the distance is only something like 10 minutes but is it a pleasant walk for women? Are there many places for dinner around there or we better off looking for dinner at Korinbo?

      Thanks!

      Kanazawa Light-Up Bus Pick-Up & Drop-Off Points

      by Melanie_Putra Online Now Sep 16, 2012 at 3:33 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I will be visiting Kanazawa for 3 nights April 20-23rd. I researched the Kanazawa Light-Up bus and found its schedule and all the bus stops. The website mentions that it starts from Terminal #1 at East Gate of Kanazawa Station and takes 32minutes. My question is can we get on and off this bus from any of the stop or only from the station? Ie, if I stay in Korinbo it will be easier for me to start and end the tour at the Korinbo Stop (No7).

      Thanks!
      Mel

      just wondering if it was really necessary to phone and book in advance to make that visit... my Japanese being somewhat limited, it would be easier if i could just show up. I am staying for 2 days in Kanazawa so maybe i could also stop by on my first day to book the 2nd day ?
