      Private Mt. Fuji 1 day Tour

      Japan Yesterday

      Hi all

      I am looking for a company which operates private Mt. Fuji tour this coming December.

      My choices are limited because we require a different pickup and dropoff point. Furthermore, my pickup point is not in the main Tokyo area. In fact we are pretty near to Mt Fuji

      The Mt. Fuji tour date that we are looking at is 14 Dec 2014

      Kozantei Ubuya
      富士河口湖温泉郷 湖山亭うぶや
      〒401-0303 山梨県南都留郡富士河口湖町浅川10

      At the end of the trip, we would like to return to:

      Hotel Century South Tower
      2-2-1 Yoyogi, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 151-8583, Japan
      Tel: +81 3 5354 0111 Fax: +81 3 5354 0100

      Please advise.

      Thank you for all your help!

    • Gioji temple bicycle parking in Arashiyama?

      Japan Jul 20, 2014 at 9:27 AM

      I plan on renting a bike during my stay in Arashiyama.

      I'm planning on hitting:
      1. bamboo groves
      2.Jojakkoji Temple
      3. Gioji Temple
      4. Bike back to Saga Arashiyama

      I know that Jojakkoji temple has bicycle parking according , but I didn't see a parking lot indicated for Gioji. And Gioji is so far away, does anyone know if there's a place to legally park my bike near that temple?

      Also, with the bike, about how many hours would I need for this itinerary?
      We're planning at 3-4 hours, is this more than enough?

      Cheap Shinkansen Ticket

      Tokyo-to Jul 15, 2014 at 10:50 PM

      Hi I would like to travel from Tokyo to Nagoya using shinkansen. I read the normal price if i was to buy on the spot is about 10,300 yen.

      I read that i can get a cheaper one by
      1) Buying from travel agent such as JTB a day before. How much discount can i get for a tourist? and is there any JTB or travel agent shop inside Tokyo station?

      2) Buying from vending machine at Ticket shops. I just know the type of tickets available are limited. Is there any further info on this?

      I hope you can advice me.

      Universal Studio Japan Express Pass Booklet 7 and Admission Ticket

      Hi all, I will be travelling to Japan this December and will most probably be staying in Swissotel Osaka.

      I would like to know if there is any way that I can get the Express Pass Booklet 7 and Admission Ticket before I head off for the trip either online or around my hotel or even in my home country of Singapore.

      This is because I have children in my group and wish to prepare everything in advance. Am also worried about the express booklets being sold out on that day itself.

      Please advise.

      Thank you!

      Hello everyone, up to whattime of the day is the monorail open for passengers? I am arriving in Naha with a very late after-midnight flight, so I was wondering if it will be operating by that time. If not, is my only option to go to the city centre a taxi and if yes, how much would that cost me approximately? Thank you!
