      Private Mt. Fuji 1 day Tour

      Japan Jul 20, 2014 at 9:46 PM

      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.

      Thanks.

      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.

    • Map of bus routes throughout Sendai

      by Fredbel6 Online Now Aug 16, 2013 at 2:04 PM

      Hello,

      I am trying to figure out the bus system in Sendai. There are a few places that have a website describing how you can get there from Sendai station, but it would be much easier for me if I would simply see all routes on a map of Sendai, to have som idea which routes are best to get from A to B (I can't read Japanese so that is probably why I can't find it)

      I plan on using busses for commuting so I can't always take the Loople,and it seems the subway won't be of much use to me.

      So does anyone know where I can find such a map?

      Many thanks!

    • Is it possible to rent a bicycle for a few weeks in Sendai, Japan?

      by Fredbel6 Online Now Jul 30, 2013 at 1:15 PM

      Hello everyone I am planning to spend a few weeks in Sendai, Miyagi-ken, in Japan, and I was wondering if it is possible to rent a bicycle, which would give me some more freedom to explore the city and its surroundings. Is it also true that you cannot just park your bicycle wherever you want, that you need to use designated parking lots for bicycles? (I am used to riding bicycles in cities, but I am a (continental) European so I'm used to driving on the right side.) All suggestions or ideas are welcome!
