      2.Is there a monthly budget train ticket and discount for senior travelers.
      3. We are non-smokers so we hope it will not be difficult non-smokers accommodation.

    • April 2016 Trip planning for Japan

      Japan Jul 16, 2015 at 3:18 AM

      I'm planning a trip to Japan for April 2016 and would really appreciate some advice. To be clear, I went to Japan in November 2014 so this trip is to explore more (we loved it). My current plan is:

      1: Day 1 Arrive Narita 31/March
      2: Day 1 Fly from Narita to Fukuoka
      3: Day 2 Six days on Kyushu
      4: Day 8 travel to Shikoku
      5: Day 9 Four days on Shikoku
      6: Day 13 travel to Koya-san via Tokushima to Wakayama ferry then train
      7: Day 14 One day Koyasan
      8: Day 15 travel to yyyy.
      9: Day 16 3 days in yyyy
      10: Day 19 Travel to Narita (stay in Narita to be near Narita Airport for departure next day)
      11: Day 20 Fly from Narita.

      We will use JRPass and trains as much as possible. In each travel day I've blocked the whole day out for travel, that way if we take less it is a bonus.

      So, my questions are probably simple...
      1: Looks like Usuki (Kyushu) to Yawatahama (Shikoku) ferry is about 3 hours, is that correct?
      2: Looks like Tokushima (Shikoku) to Wakayama (Honshu) ferry is about 2h10m, is that correct?
      Are these reasonable routes to use or is there better?

      The destination yyy could be a return to Kyoto or to go to Fuji-san. Which would be best, possibly seeing Cherry Blossom? Really liked Kyoto but would like to visit the Fuji area, instead of seeing it whizzing past on Shinkansen.

      Many thanks for reading this and any comments really appreciated.

      Tattoo onsen?

      Hokkaido Jun 30, 2015 at 11:30 AM

      Hi All, I have a sizeable back tattoo but would still like to onsen (preferably outdoor) on our trip around Hokkaido during the next two weeks. Does anyone know any onsen (anywhere in Hokkaido) that don't care and will let me bathe? From previous experience years ago I know most places have signs up prohibiting entry to tattooed folk. Have the times changed? I was last there about 4yrs ago and was able to hide a smaller tattoo under strapping tape, but I won't be able to hide this new back one. We have a car and no set itinerary - will just end our trip in Kushiro, so any recommendations, anywhere at all, would be appreciated. Thanks, Terry

    • Getting to Mt Aso from Aso station/town

      by ZeroNiner Online Now Nov 12, 2013 at 2:46 AM

      I understand that there is a bus service that goes up to Asosan from Aso station or village. Where can I find the schedule, as on the day of my visit I need to catch the 15:44 train back to Kumamoto.
      Alternatively, I was thinking of renting a car for 6 hours. Are there any car rentals within Aso? Lonely Planet's guide says there is but I'm not sure if the info is updated.
      Thanks.
