      Here is a map of my planned itinerary. It says 2 hours walk but does that include walking through the temples inside out? Or does it only arrive to each temple and head to the next location? If we count the time stayed in each temple/place, what would my total trip time for the day be? (I'm not sure how long to stay for each place) Thank you.

      How to go to Shirakawago from Kyoto

      Shirakawa Mar 28, 2014 at 9:11 PM

      Hi everyone! For the first time, I am going to Japan. I only have 4 days to spend and my IT would include:

      Day 1 and 2: Kyoto
      Day 3: Shirikawa
      Day 3: Osaka

      How to go to Shirakawa-go from Kyoto? Is it cheaper to take a bus? I am a budget traveler and would love your suggestions! I found a tour from J-Hoppers for 11, 900 Yen for 1 night and 2 days tour from Kyoto to Shirawaka-go. Is it expensive or should I do it myself and instead spend half day in Shirakawa and stay the night back in Kyoto.

      Mitake Station Autumn Leaf

      Japan Apr 13, 2014 at 2:52 AM

      We have been invited to stay in Mitake and thus, are planning to visit Tokyo and Mitake in Autumn. Not planning to hike up Mt Mitake but just hanging out at this friend's house which is 10 minute walk from Mitake Station.

      Can anyone tell me when is the best time to go? I know its hard to predict the weather but does the leaf turn color here (around the station and not up the mountain) earlier or the same time as Tokyo?

    • First time travel to Japan/Kansai

      Japan Apr 10, 2014 at 2:27 AM

      Hello, we are travelling to Japan for the first time and will arrive at Kansai International Airport. We only want to travel in Kansai and have 12 days altogether: so probably visit Kyoto, Nara, Wakayama peninsula and spend time around Lake Biwa. (Possibly with a trip to Hiroshima if it is not too expensive.) We don't like moving too fast: about 3 days in each place. Can someone advise what train passes/etc we should buy or is it better to just buy the tickets for the local line? Or take buses? Are there any suggestions for nice small towns to stay: rather than big cities. We are happy to just take walks around town or along the lake etc.

      Thanks,
      Jane

      Any suggestions would be great: btw we are an older couple 57 and 75 years old. We go slowly!!

      Cherry blossom?

      Matsumoto 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 Japan-guide.com 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.

      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.

    • Looking for someone to share a room with, snowboarding hakuba, nagano

      Nagano-ken Dec 25, 2012 at 4:13 PM

      Hi all!

      Firstly I apologise if this isn't the right forum to post this sort of question, if you can give any advice or direct me where to go for this it would be much appreciated.

      So I'm travelling to Japan (for the first time!) and am planning to go snowboarding for a few days, from Jan 26th-30th, in Hakuba, Nagano. However now I'm stuck with a 2 person room to myself, the cancellation fees are very high and it's a bit late to start trying to find new accommodation, else I would have gone to a backpackers, and so now I'm asking around to see if anyone would like to share the room with me and split the costs.

      I'm a 22 year old Australian male and am not too picky about room mates and would be happy to share with about anyone, and also I'll be staying at the Hakuba-Allure.

      If anyone would like further details, feel free to message me.

      Sorry again if this is the wrong place! I wasn't sure whether or not this fell under advertising/solicitation.

    • Can we still snowboard in mid March?

      Nagano-ken Dec 10, 2012 at 11:50 PM

      Few of us are planning a ski trip to Japan, and would like to explore other resorts outside Niseko. Flights to Tokyo are always easier to organise, so somewhere on honshu will be good.

      - Which resorts will still have decent snow/powder by early to mid March?
      - Preferably with good runs for both beginners to advanced snowboarders (ie no long flat runs please!)

      Thanks!

      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.
