      Travelling to sightseeing spots around Fukui

      Fukui-ken Apr 17, 2015 at 6:46 PM

      I am planning on visiting Fukui prefecture next month and it seems that there are many interesting places however they are quite dispersed from each other. How easy is it to travel in Fukui? Is there a sight-seeing bus or something similar? Thanks.

    • Tokyo-Hakone-Disney

      Tokyo Apr 24, 2015 at 3:26 AM

      Hi, I will be travelling to Tokyo with young kids. Is it too adventurous to try to go to Hakone and stay a night in a ryokan from Tokyo then come back the next day to check in to a Disney hotel? this is assuming I use Takuhaibin to send our baggage from the Tokyo hotel to Disney and then travel light to Hakone. Will it still be challenging with young kids?

      Thanks for any advice!

      Superstores & Discount stores in Tokyo

      Tokyo Apr 20, 2015 at 3:23 AM

      Hi,
      Are there any large supermarket style superstores in Tokyo that sell a varied range of goods - I'm thinking of stores similar to Walmart in the US or Tesco in the UK, I realise that these type of stores might be on the outskirts of the city, but If it is close to a subway or train station that would be great
      I'm not looking for anything in particular, I just wan't to have a look around at the different products available in Japan.
      Also, are there any other large discount style shops - similar to the large Don Quijote store in Asakusa.
      Thanks for any advice

      Hi, I am planning to visit Japan with my son who is 12. I am slightly worried after looking into it because of the many 'erootic' and rude things on display at shops right in the front door. Also as my son will want to visit game shops (He loves retro games and I gave him an old SEGA for his birthday). Should I worry?

      Who wants to join?
      Preferably by April 2016
      Been reading alot lately, but still havent decide on how to start with the itineraries ... since all the prefectures are worth to see ... i know too that, multiple visits should be done and not just a 10 days visit is enough ... urrggghh ...
      Anyhow, please --- do suggest anything not so- expensive ways to enjoy Japan.
      I enjoyed my first ever guesthouse stay in Seoul, so guesthouse wont be a problem from now on ...
      Tentative dates would be April 4 - 16, 2016.

      First Day Itinerary

      Tokyo Apr 12, 2015 at 5:23 AM

      I will be in Tokyo on a Sunday and will be coming in from Narita airport around 2pm. I would like to maximize my day so after check in I am thinking of going to:

      1) Meiji Shrine - I have read somewhere that it's closed on Mondays but the shrine's website says it's open daily. I also know that I can reach either via Metro (Shinjuku-sanchome station- Meijijingumae station) or JR Line (Shinjuku-Harajuku station). I'm confused on how to reach the shrine after I exit either of the 2 stations. Google shows that it will be a 25 min walk from either stations to the entrance of the Shrine. The website of Meiji Shrine says it will be a 1min walk to the South gate. Which is which? Also, is an hour enough to really enjoy Meiji shrine?

      2) Harajuku/Takeshita Dori - After I exit Meiji Shrine
      3) Omotesando- for Number Sugar/Omotesando Koffee/Crayon House (have their vegetarian buffet for dinner) Japanese food is my favorite! : )

      4) Shibuya - do I still have time? If I don't I can do this the next day.

      Narita Airport to Tokyu Stay Shinjuku

      Tokyo Apr 11, 2015 at 1:11 AM

      To reach Tokyu Stay Shinjuku I will take the NEX to:
      1) Tokyo Station - transfer to Metro (Marunouchi line) - Shinjuku-Sanchome station - exit and reach hotel on 1 min walk.

      2) Shinjuku station which I believe is connected to Shinjuku-Sanchome. I am not sure how far a walk this will be. I will be bringing a luggage although wheeled and small size. Tokyo station seems daunting to a first-timer like me.

      Which is the better way?

      Japan/Misawa residents, I have some Questions?

      by LaurenAnita Online Now Apr 5, 2012 at 3:12 PM

      Hey guys! Please forgive my ignorance about this- but I was considering living in Japan for a couple of years, and I understand that it is very difficult. I am a dietitian, and I was born in Japan, IN Misawa- and I want to work inside the hospital on base. I just think it'd be neat to work where I was born, and get to know Japan a little bit.

      For residents, what do I need to know about trying to attain residency? For military if there are any, are there any requirements to work on base? Thank you! Any input is valued, even if it destroys my dream haha best to be informed.

    • No-visa stay limit/renewal

      by ser_hank Online Now Oct 4, 2011 at 2:01 AM

      Hi! I'm in the US Navy, stationed up here in Misawa, and my wife's paperwork for command sponsorship (indefinite stay permission) has been lost and resubmitting it will take longer than she has left on her 90-day stay limit, because she doesn't have a working/student visa. We're probably going to have to fly her to Korea and back to restart her stay-clock, which we are both a little terrified of, so we were wondering how long she needs to stay in Korea for it to reset her time in Japan.

      To sum up: How long does someone need to leave Japan for, in order to reset their no-visa stay-time?

      Any assistant will be greatly appreciated!!!

      I'm living in Florida, currently, but will be flying out of ATL to travel to Misawa in October/November. I've read that the "best" way to get there is a flight into Narita, a bus to Haneda, and then a flight from Haneda into Misawa. Is this truly the best way to get there? I don't want a tedious, tiring trip. Thanks in advance!
