      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 Yesterday

      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!!!

      Tengu Izakaya branch at Tennozu Isle/Shinagawa

      Shinagawa May 15, 2015 at 10:07 AM

      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.

      Would anyone be able to help, please?

      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!

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.

      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?

      Hi. My brother will be coming to visit Japan with his family. However it seems that hotels in Japan are charging rooms per person, therefore this would be either be expensive or websites indicate unavailability of rooms. My brother is a group of 5 (2 adults and 3 young children). Normally, if they go vacation in other countries, they only book room with double beds (No of persons is not counted).

      Have anyone been in such situation before?. Or can anybody suggest apartment for weekly rent.

      JR Railpass

      by ariz Online Now Sep 16, 2007 at 4:40 PM

      My family and I are arriving at CENTRAIR and will be staying two nights in Nagoya. We also plan on visiting Kyoto where we will spend one night before returning to Nagoya. We will then continue on to Tokyo later that same day where we'll spend 4 nights before flying out of NRT. Does it make economical sense to purchase the JR Railpass to travel to these cities or would we better off to simply purchase our tickets at the station when we need them? I know the cost of the JR Railpass, but I don't know the fares of the tickets to get to the cities we want to visit if we travelled without the pass. These are the only rail trips I envision us taking, although we will use the subway system within the cities (and I understand day passes for that are available). It's my understanding that the subway system is not included in the JR Railpass. Is that true? Any recommendations? Thank you.
