      Flights to Japan from Kamchatka

      Japan Nov 22, 2015 at 7:59 AM

      Hallo peeps,
      I am planning trip to Russia on the transibirian, catching train from Helsinki via St Pete's to Moscow to Vladivostok, than I found flight from Vladivostock to Petropavlosk-Kamchatskiy and exploring Kamchatka for couple of weeks. From there we want to fly to Japan, Sapporo preferably and after spending week there, fly home.
      My plan looks good on paper but now I have a problem, it seems Aeroflot do not fly from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy to Japan.
      And anybody of you lovely peeps give me idea how I can get to Japan from Kamčatka ( plane, boat) without going back to Vladivostok or anywhere else?
      Many thanks!

      P.S same question is posted on Russia forum too

      Tokyo trip for 7days

      Tokyo Nov 10, 2015 at 8:00 AM

      I needed some tips for my Virgin Tokyo trip end of the month.
      1) should I get a nex , suica or pormo card for my travels in Tokyo or it would be better savings for me to get the JR pass since il be using it for my 3days trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen ?
      2) will I be able to use the JR pass for the public transportation in Tokyo such as the metro n buses?
      3) or would it best for me to just purchase a single return trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen?
      4) is it advisable to take an airport bus or express to my hotel (CERELEUN TOKYU HOTEL)?
      5)any tour websites that I can buy Disney sea/land at a much affordable rate?

      Yamatoya roykan re-opening

      Miyanoshita May 22, 2014 at 8:05 AM

      Any idea on when the Yamatoya ryokan will re-open? The website says it has got a new owner and that it is under reconstruction. I am particularly interested not only because it is a very beautiful and charming place, but also because I had a delicious vegetarian meal which is quite uncommon for a ryokan. So I also wonder if the same chef will work there again - this is probably easier asked than answered.
      Thanks in advance, Herman
