    • From Hilton Shinjuku to Disneysea

      Tokyo Feb 20, 2015 at 11:10 AM

      Hi, wanted to know what is the best way to go to Disneysea from Hilton Shinjuku. Is it better to take a metro from Nishi-Shninjuku to Tokyo station and then take a JR train or is it better to take a metro from Tochomae to Yoyogi and take a bus to Disney Resort ? From Google Earth, I see that the Yoyogi station does not have overbridge. Does Yoyogi have a subway to cross the railway track ? Apology for asking boring questions, but small details help. Thanks in advance for the answers.

      Visiting Hiroshima, Kyote and Tokyo - travel advice please.

      Japan Feb 19, 2015 at 7:00 AM

      Hi,
      Some advice or opinions would be much appreciated. I am hoping to visit Japan for the second time in May, last time I only wen't to Tokyo. This visit I am planning to fly into Kansai Airport at Osaka and spend three days in Hiroshima and five days in Kyote before travelling to Tokyo for about a week then returning to the UK from Tokyo airport.
      The question is should I go to Hiroshima from the airport then visit Kyote and then onto Tokyo or should I first visit Kyote then Hiroshima and finally Tokyo.
      I would like advice on travel times and costs as well as what trains to take and if a rail pass would be a good idea as they only seem valid for certain rail lines.
      Thanks
      Tony

      itinerary suggestions

      Japan Feb 24, 2015 at 8:05 AM

      Hi I could really use some advice on an itinerary!! We are a family of four going to Japan in June 4 weeks . I'm very excited! Tokyo, climbing Mount Fuji (we are experienced hikers) Kyoto are on the list, we plan to get the rail passes for 2 or 3 weeks. We have two teenage boys and we heard there's amazing theme parks too (but from the Los Angeles area so we're not interested in Universal Studios / Disney Land) we love nature, adventure , hiking , culture, architecture and food!! I need a sample itinerary and also... should we include Okinawa?

      Thank you so much!
      Any advice/favorite places restaurant etc. very much appreciated!

    • Tokyo Weather in March

      Tokyo Feb 15, 2015 at 4:52 AM

      Hi, I will be in Tokyo (with my wife and a 9 yr old son) from 14th - 21st Mar and in Kyoto 21st Mar - 27th Mar. I see that the temperature varies between a max of 13 deg and min of 4 deg celsius. Does it mean that reasonable amount of winter clothing will be needed ? Also I see that the rainfall increases markedly in March from Feb. Does it mean I should expect most of the days to be rainy / cloudy ? Also when it rains, does it pour (like Monsoon in India) or is it more like a drizzle ? Also should I take one of the Mt Fuji trips from Tokyo in case expecation is that the mountain will hide behind a cover of cloud ? Apology for so many questions but given that all are related to weather, though I should ask them in one place. Thank you for your help in advance.

      I'm travelling to Japan later this year - I've had to change my travel dates, and have been offered either Mid June for 10 days, or early December for the same amount of time. I intend to take lots of photos, and have heard June is generally overcast and rainy, whilst December can be bright and dry?
      I would be travelling to Tokyo, Kyoto, Hakone, Osaka and Hiroshima. Any suggestions on the best time to go?

    • Events in May

      by amiya12 Online Now May 10, 2014 at 4:29 AM

      I am planning a trip to Nara next week sunday (19th).. I was informed there will be a few things going there at Kofukuji-temple.
      1) at around 4pm
      2) at night

      My question is, what are the events going on there? do we need to pay entrance fee to see it? At night, what time would it start? Would it be better to stay a night in nara?

      Thanks in advance.

      Transportation from Kyoto to Nara and distances once in Nara

      by nomad7890 Online Now Aug 19, 2009 at 6:43 AM

      I was looking in the keihan train page and saw that there is a train that goes from Kyoto to Nara, however, it seems you need to take a bus after the train drops you off.

      Is there any other transportation from Kyoto to Nara that does not involve a transfer?

      Once in Nara, is the area walkable - so would this make a good day trip from Kyoto?

    • shukubo?

      by dilaurorn Online Now Feb 17, 2008 at 12:05 PM

      I am looking for Shukubo within close distance to Kyoto or Nara that does not object to americans,we plan to learn whatever we can so as not to offend by our ignorance. We really want to experience the prayers & meditations as well as shojin ryori.
      Because of our itinerary;(we have one day available before we go to Nara -for one night- via Kyoto, and then back to Kyoto for a few nights before returning to Tokyo)
      Nara would be best but I cannot find mention of any temples offering shukubo either in Nara (or Uji, I don't know other areas between to search)
      In Kyoto I've found only names of a few places but no real information, reviews or contact details.
      I find copious amounts of information about Koyasan- However, we don't really have enough time to make it worthwile.

      I am traveling with my partner to Nara next week, and our accommodations backed out on us at the last minute -- so, we thought it'd be nice to go camping. We have our own gear, and would like your info about the places to camp! We will also have JR Rail passes, so places we could access without extra travel costs are preferable.

      Thanks!

      Big BBQ in Nara

      by MoogieCha Online Now Apr 21, 2006 at 7:53 AM

      Hi,

      This is a shot in the dark, but has anyone heard of a huge barbecue that's held every once in awhile somewhere in the countryside of Nara-ken? Apparently it's a huge bash where you pay one lump sum and eat as much as you like. If anyone has any information on this or knows where I can find some information, please leave a reply here. Thanks!

    • Please I need some help if possible

      by QLR Online Now Sep 19, 2005 at 1:19 PM

      Hi I'm going to Nara for 5 days in October,
      and I have some question, which I hope some of you can help me with.

      a) I have heard that there is a temple where you can stay in the city of Kamo close to Nara. Can you get me a telephone number for this place?

      b) There should be a bus from Nara to Osaka airport. At what time does it depart from in the morning?

      c) Can you recomend a one day hike in the Nara area. Maybe where you both see nature and temples?

      And finaly I have heard that there in Japan should be some gigant mazes (see my question in the Kyoto forum). Do you know of one of these in the kyoto / Nara area?

      I know it is a lot of questions but I hope you can help me. Or maybe you have an email adress for the yourist information?

      Yours sincerely
