hi, we will go to tokyo in april/may for 5 days, we are a family of 6 (4 adults, 2 kids ages 10 yo and 13 yo)
we will be based in shinjuku, and plan to go to shibuya, ginza, tsukiji, akihabara, and ueno.
what will be the best train ticket to buy for this trip?
We are staying at the hotel Niwa 1-1-16 Misaki-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. What is the cheapest way to get there without having to carry alot of luggage all over from Narita. I have looked at several maps and I still don't know the best way to get there. Have I mentioned that I'm also cheap. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
We are about to sign up for a 10 day Highlights of Japan Tour departing mid May this year. Tour commences with 2 nights Tokyo one being arrival day, then onto Hakone (1), Takayama (2), Kyoto (4) includes day trip to Hiroshima.
Tokyo tour description: "A carefully crafted walking tour immerses you in the tantalizing streets of Tokyo, including dazzling Harajuku and the peaceful Rikyu Garden. Look down on the city from the Tokyo Tower and take a stunning river cruise to Asakusa."
Tour hotel Tokyo: Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa, which is close to the Shinagawa Train Station, which I am told is a handy location.
I would think we need 2 or 3 nights pre tour to gain an appreciation of Tokyo ( we are not limited on days and could extend to 5 days if there is sufficient sightseeing), we like to explore the city streets , some shopping, eat local foods, visit one or two museums but not spend days inside museums. Appreciate any suggestions re " must see or do".
We could even take a day trip to other towns / cities - Any Suggestions!
For our pre tour days in Tokyo what train pass would you recommend to move around Tokyo?
Anything we should be aware of, eg public holiday closures during May, strikes, bad weather.
We live in Perth Western Australia, day temperature presently peaks anywhere between 32C and 40C and will be like this for several more months. What should we expect Japan May 2014?
