      Universal Studio Japan Express Pass Booklet 7 and Admission Ticket

      Osaka Jul 1, 2014 at 7:19 AM

      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!

    • In need of an organized plan for my 5 day trip in Osaka/Kyoto (Long Read)

      Osaka Mar 1, 2014 at 10:37 PM

      Hello, my boyfriend and I are planning to visit Osaka, Japan in mid May and we are in need of some serious planning due to limited budgeting and transportation confusions. Unfortunately we arrive to Kansai International Airport by around 12:45 and by the time we get out with luggage it should be at least 1:30 (if quick). With that being said, THERE ARE NO BUSES/TRAINS...only taxi. We figured the closest and economic hotel from Kansai Airport is around 30 minutes ride of taxi, so that idea is out of the question. What we could and is planning to do though, is stay in the hotel until the morning when the trains and buses are on service again. (Desperate measures to save money!)

      I checked the subway system and it seems like the only way to get to Kyoto is by
      - JR line --> kansai-airport.or.jp/en/acce...
      - Bus --> kansai-airport.or.jp/en/acce...

      Would it be more convenient to take the JR line/bus to Kyoto then find a place to stay from there? We were planning to go to Kyoto asap, finish touring around there finish off our trip in Osaka. How long would it take by train and by bus? I'm also not quite sure where the bus will take us (Don't want to end up in the middle of a street).

      P.S. Which part of Kyoto should I be living in, if we want to reduce the travel time as much as possible, while going to several must see places such as the Nijō Castle. I'm using this site at the moment to check on the places I could go to -
      tripadvisor.ca/Attractions-g...

      Sorry for the long read and situation. It is our first time travelling as two people without a tour. Thank you.

      Hello All,

      I'll arrive Narita airport (7 Mar) at 5PM in a 2-week plan starting Hiroshima-Osaka(a-day-trip)-Kyoto-Tokyo then back.

      Could you pls advise your opinion on my below briefed plan B:

      -overnight in Tokyo when arrived.

      -Next day move 7AM to reach Osaka 10AM.

      -Leave my large-sized bag in Osaka station & enjoy the pre-planned 10 Hrs in Osaka.

      -Take Shinkansen 8PM to reach Hiroshima 10PM.

      Will be highly appreciated to share you advice, Thanks.

    • 10 Days Solo in Osaka

      Osaka Oct 27, 2013 at 8:15 AM

      Hi everyone! I will be travelling alone to Osaka on the 13th November for 10 days, i will be staying in Namba the whole time. I'd appreciate if anyone could help me answer a few questions i have;

      1) How easy would it be to visit the likes of Kyoto & Nara for day trips from where i am based? Are there direct trains from Namba station?

      2) As i will be travelling alone, any advice on where to mix and meet the locals who would happily welcome a foreigner would be appreciated!

      3) What kind of weather can i typically expect for this time of the year? (Just so i know the most suitable attire to pack!)

      4) I've been to Tokyo a couple of years ago and bought a 'Suica' card on arrival which really helped me get around, would i be able to buy the same card when i arrive at Kansai International for use in Osaka?

      5) Will 200,000 yen be enough for the 10 days? (For food, day trips, admissions and train fare)

      Many thanks in advance!
