    • Japan away from the big cities

      Japan Mar 25, 2015 at 9:26 AM

      Hello,
      We are going to Japan soon and want to experience some of the countryside. We have planned for two nights in Yufuin, Oita prefecture and one night in Hakone.
      We like mountains and hot springs, but I´m wondering if Yufuin and Hakone are very much like one another?
      Are both places just crowded with tourists?
      Does anybody have another suggestion if we want to experience some countryside living, preferrably between Kyoto and Tokyo or somewhere south of Hiroshima?
      Thanks for any advice!

    • What to see - 5 days in Kyoto by bicycle?

      Kyoto Mar 14, 2015 at 1:28 AM

      Hi, me and my husband will be spending 5 days in the city of Kyoto (it will be our first time in Japan).
      Our BnB is in Minami-ku, Kyoto Prefecture. They offer us two bicycles to drive around.
      Are there any bike tours that we can plan ahead and which places can we reach in a day ride?
      Are there some rules that we have to consider when riding bicycles?
      What about finding repair stores and parking lots?
      Thanks for your advice...

    • What area / street in Tokyo is this? (see image)

      Tokyo Mar 3, 2015 at 2:50 AM

      Hi,

      I went to Tokyo a couple of years ago and took this photo (attached). I've now made a big acrylic painting of it and now I want to know the name of the street, or at least the area.

      Can somebody help me? I remember there was an indoor food market quite close to this and I think I bought some good sake bottles in this area as well.

      Suggestion On 6-Day Itinerary

      Osaka Mar 15, 2015 at 10:38 AM

      Would anyone be kind enough to suggest a 6-day itinerary in Osaka for me. Any suggestion will do without prejudice to any interests in particular. Travel date would be from 14-21 Nov 2015. I had Kyoto covered, so I will pass on any adjacent town/city such as Kyoto/Nara/Kobe and such. Just strictly on Osaka.

      Cheers now :')

      Is this how Japanese people address eachother?

      Japan Mar 29, 2015 at 1:45 PM

      I was watching "You Only Live Twice" and this Japanese agent kept calling Bond, "Bond Son". Is that considered respectful in Japan to address someone that way? What is the meaning of it?

    • Tsumago/Magome

      by AyameWood Online Now Feb 1, 2013 at 10:22 AM

      My husband & I would like to spend a few nights in the Tsumago/Magome area en route from Kyoto to Tokyo at the end of May. Any suggestions of places to stay, eat and things do for a reasonable price (we plan to hike the trail between the two towns)? We are very open minded, flexible and are seeking a peaceful, traditional experience to end our rather whirlwind trip. We are also open to any suggestions of alternative places to go between K&T which would have an old Japan feel with a possibility for a hike in the countryside. All responses a very much appreciated.

      Need help with acommodation/spending the night!!!

      by Aerond Online Now Mar 17, 2008 at 4:51 AM

      Hi! Me and my girlfriend are travelling to Japan in May. On May 1st we want to go from Tokyo to Nagano to attend a concert. The problem is that the last Shinkansen runs at 21:40 and we´re likely not making it; but we can´t afford spending 10000 yen in a Business Hotel. Is there any alternative?? Anything is valid, from a Love Hotel to a Capsule (it has to accept a man and a woman), to a 24 hour internet place, to a Youth Hostel (with no curfew, obviously); better if near JR Nagano Station, as the venue of the show is near it.
      Thank you very much for your help!!!
