      Our friend from the Philippines will be going to Osaka for about two weeks. While in Osaka, he will need to constantly contact his Philippine office. While mobile phone and sim card would be economically more advisable to purchase and where would he need to purchase this ? Any helpful advise will be greatly appreciated. thank you.

    • 24/12-03/1/15, Itinerary help needed

      Osaka Aug 14, 2014 at 9:47 PM

      We will be travelling to Saka with 2 teeagers 12 and 14 ( 24/12/14-3/1/15). We have confirmed our hotel near Universal and plans for the first three days - 24 Aquarium, 25 Universal, 26 Rinku Outlet.

      26-27 Stay at Wakayama ( go to watch the tuna cutting session, sample oranges, and visit amusement park, )

      Plan A

      Stay at Ehime , cultured pearls and sample more local food like Tai ( Is it worth a visit and safe to go as KOchi just had a flood recently?)

      Should we stay at Kobe, my family loves beef. My friend also recommended me to visit a Sake museum there. Or I can still revisit Kobe another day since it is a short train ride and my family will be getting the Kansai JR pass

      Plan B 27/12-3/1? Just stay at a hotel Osaka Shinbashi area. Do day trips to Naran Kyoto , Kobe

      Finally, where is a good place to go/hotel to stay for 31 to see the fireworks . Or should we go Ehime, to avoid the crowd?

      We will be including Osaka Castle, Asahi Beer Factoy and Nissin Museum in our trip.

      We place food as our first priority, we love sashimi , soba, barbecue skewers. Please advise a good okonomiyaki restaurant too.

      What will the weather be like usually?

      Thank you.

      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.

    • 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 -->
      - Bus -->

      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 Nij┼Ź Castle. I'm using this site at the moment to check on the places I could go to -

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