      Odawara Castle

      Odawara May 4, 2015 at 3:06 AM

      I'll be visiting Odawara Castle on Oct 31 (Saturday) on my way from Hakone Yumoto to Shinjuku. I need some clarification please..

      1. I know that the castle closes at 5pm. Is this just for the entrance into the castle building or the ground as well? I would like to hang around the castle ground until twilight for an opportunity to take photo of the castle during the 'blue' hour. Wondering if the ground remains opened after 5pm?

      2. What time is twilight at the end of October?

      3. I plan to ride the Odakyu Romancecar back to Shinjuku. Can I purchase the Romancecar from Hakone Yumoto to Shinjuku but break the journey and jump off for a few hours at Odawara? Or I need to go from Hakone Yumoto by Hakone Tozan Railway to Odawara and board the Romancecar from Odawara to Shinjuku?

      4. Any recommendation for dinner option near the Odawara Station?

      Tq! Mel

    • Help with Climing Mt Fuji translation

      Japan May 21, 2015 at 8:11 PM

      Hi all - I've booked a place to stay while climbing Mt Fuji (8th Station). So far a combination of bad high-school Japanese has got me through - but I'm a little stumped with the translation on one bit of the site. I think it is talking about being quiet for those who want to sleep - but I just want to make sure it doesn't prohibit us from getting up at 1am to start the trek for the top.

      富士山の山小屋は旅館や民宿とは違い、富士山山頂を目指すための登山基地で、夜中に出発される方は早い時間からお休みになっています。館内で宴会を行い、騒ぐような行為は、他のお客様の安眠を奪ってしまいますし、3100mの高所での飲酒は高山病の危険性を高くし、お客様自身の登頂の可能性を低くしてしまいます。そのような理由から、太子舘では館内禁酒とさせて頂いております。

      Thanks!!!

      I've been to Tengu Izakaya branch at Shinjuku Minami Guchi and quite like it. I read that there are many branches but I can't find the store locator. Would like to find one near my hotel which is located at Tennozu Isle. I even read somewhere that there is a branch at Shinagawa. However, not a detailed description of the exact location.

      3 Week Itinerary

      Japan May 17, 2015 at 8:04 PM

      Hi There. We are trying to lock down our 3 week holiday itinerary for Japan. We love food, mixing with the locals and the culture and seeing the different "styles" of any country we visit. This is what we are thinking:
      5 Nights in Tokoyo (with perhaps days trips to Hakone / Yokohama)
      3 Nights Takayama + 3 Nights Kanazawa + 3 Nights Kyoto + 3 Nights Osaka + 1 Night Koyosan (Buddhist Temple Stay) + 3 Nights Kobe
      I dont like to stay anywhere for less than 3 nights as we like to soak up the atmosphere and culture of a place
      Id love your thoughts on this current itinerary (proas / cons) or any alternate suggestions
      Thanks very much!

      10 days in Japan for the first time

      Japan May 18, 2015 at 8:43 AM

      we plan to visit Japan for the first time, most probably in late september for 10 full days but I'm confused a)how to create a good itinerary and b)how not to break the bank (I know japan is expensive so any reliable budget advise is highly appreciated)
      so,
      1)high on my list are TOKYO, KYOTO, NARA, HIROSHIMA, should we add more to those or 10 days is very pushing?
      how to do this starting from Osaka?
      2)we're flying into OSAKA(KIX, Kansai Intl) and fly out from TOKYO(NRT, Narita)
      does this make any sense or should we fly in/out from the same city?
      3)are those cities connected by the fast train?
      4)should we buy a Japan Rail Pass? it costs 29,110 yen (more than 210euro) for 7days. Or single tickets for train/buses will be cheaper for us?

      Tokyo May 5, 2015 at 5:59 AM

      I'll be bringing some yen when I go to Japan this month and just exchange my currency to yen when I'm already in Tokyo. Will this be easy to do? Or should I exchange more yen now? What about withdrawing from ATMs? I don't want to bring so much cash. Can I also use a debit card in paying for hotel, etc?

      Cruise Ship visit to Nagasaki

      Hello, We will visit Nagasaki by ship, and was wondering if the cruise ship terminal is very far from the city centre of Nagasaki.
      Are there interesting things to see by walking around near the port, or would a "city sights" type tour organised by the ship be recommended?
      Also, if there are several tours to choose from, what would be the top 2 sights we should see on a visit to Nagasaki?

    • parking mechanism in parking lot near the port

      Nagasaki Jan 12, 2008 at 11:27 AM

      Hi, while I was walking back to the port where our cruise ship was docked, I noticed a small park near the harbour with a small parking lot. There was a metal leaf with a small box next to it (I believe it is a motor) in the middle of each parking slot. I saw a driver backup to the parking spot and the metal leaf would rise to stop the car from pulling away. I am not sure when did the leaf risen. I think the driver had to go to the stand next to the entrance to punch in his or her parking slot number and pay a fee before the leaf came down.

      I am not really sure how this work, but it fascinates me.

      Does anybody can tell me how this mechanism works??
