      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

      Pickup:
      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:

      http://www.southerntower.co.jp/

      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

      Hello,
      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 kanko.city.kyoto.lg.jp/bicyc... , 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.

      Hi, We are a group of 6 adults and 2 children travelling to Japan in April. We are planning on visiting Okinawa for 5 full days and our itinerary will be:

      Day 1: We arrive at Naha Airport in the afternoon, rent cars and drive to North Okinawa and stay for the next couple of nights in a Hotel close to the Okinawa Aquarium

      Day 2: Visit the Okinawa Aquarium in the morning and spend the afternoon at Emerald Beach or Minnajima Island

      Day 3: Visit Ogimi Village, Okuma Beach and Hedo-misaki (if we have time)

      Day 4: Head south to Naha and along the way stop at Manza Beach and Moon Beach / Spend the Night in Naha

      Day 5: Do a day trip to Tokashiki Island / Spend the night in Naha

      Day 6: Spend the morning visiting the Peace Memorial Park and Tunnels and the rest of the afternoon in Naha.... at the end of the day we have a plane to Kansai Airport.

      Can anyone please give us an opinion on this itinerary? Any advice? I'm particularly worried about the weather and ocean temperature in this time of the year in Okinawa. We wan't to spend these spending time on the beach and water activities.
