      Flights to Japan from Kamchatka

      Japan Nov 22, 2015 at 7:59 AM

      Hallo peeps,
      I am planning trip to Russia on the transibirian, catching train from Helsinki via St Pete's to Moscow to Vladivostok, than I found flight from Vladivostock to Petropavlosk-Kamchatskiy and exploring Kamchatka for couple of weeks. From there we want to fly to Japan, Sapporo preferably and after spending week there, fly home.
      My plan looks good on paper but now I have a problem, it seems Aeroflot do not fly from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy to Japan.
      And anybody of you lovely peeps give me idea how I can get to Japan from Kamčatka ( plane, boat) without going back to Vladivostok or anywhere else?
      Many thanks!

      P.S same question is posted on Russia forum too

      Tokyo trip for 7days

      Tokyo Nov 10, 2015 at 8:00 AM

      I needed some tips for my Virgin Tokyo trip end of the month.
      1) should I get a nex , suica or pormo card for my travels in Tokyo or it would be better savings for me to get the JR pass since il be using it for my 3days trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen ?
      2) will I be able to use the JR pass for the public transportation in Tokyo such as the metro n buses?
      3) or would it best for me to just purchase a single return trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen?
      4) is it advisable to take an airport bus or express to my hotel (CERELEUN TOKYU HOTEL)?
      5)any tour websites that I can buy Disney sea/land at a much affordable rate?

      Cherry blossom?

      by owyewwah Online Now Mar 27, 2013 at 6:18 AM

      Hi, I am interested to view cherry blossom in Japan, but I am told it is kind of late for some of the popular areas like the cities, Tokyo and Osaka, by the time I visit in 2nd week of April. I am told Nagano would be a good place, got chance, I checked and realized Matsumoto is one of the places for viewing cherry blossom even in April. I intend to travel to Nagano via Tokyo and I will make short trips to Matsumoto during the my stay at Nagano, does this sound good enough? I come from Singapore. Thanks.

      Matsumoto and the Alps

      by milapinski Online Now Sep 3, 2007 at 9:00 PM

      My wife and myself will travel from Tokyo to Matsumoto (via Nagano) by train. We want to stay in Matsumoto or nearby for three days, hire a car and explore the area, going to Kamikochi, the Alps and to Kiso Valley. Then we go to Kyoto by train.

      Would be helpful to hear from someone who knows the area or traveled there. We would like to find some nice (not too expensive) accommodation in Matsumoto or in the area, as a base. We would also welcome some tips on what to see within this time limit. We'd like to do some walking trips, but no longer than a few hrs.
