    • Tokyo-Hakone-Disney

      Tokyo Yesterday

      Hi, I will be travelling to Tokyo with young kids. Is it too adventurous to try to go to Hakone and stay a night in a ryokan from Tokyo then come back the next day to check in to a Disney hotel? this is assuming I use Takuhaibin to send our baggage from the Tokyo hotel to Disney and then travel light to Hakone. Will it still be challenging with young kids?

      Thanks for any advice!

      Superstores & Discount stores in Tokyo

      Tokyo Apr 20, 2015 at 3:23 AM

      Hi,
      Are there any large supermarket style superstores in Tokyo that sell a varied range of goods - I'm thinking of stores similar to Walmart in the US or Tesco in the UK, I realise that these type of stores might be on the outskirts of the city, but If it is close to a subway or train station that would be great
      I'm not looking for anything in particular, I just wan't to have a look around at the different products available in Japan.
      Also, are there any other large discount style shops - similar to the large Don Quijote store in Asakusa.
      Thanks for any advice

      Who wants to join?
      Preferably by April 2016
      Been reading alot lately, but still havent decide on how to start with the itineraries ... since all the prefectures are worth to see ... i know too that, multiple visits should be done and not just a 10 days visit is enough ... urrggghh ...
      Anyhow, please --- do suggest anything not so- expensive ways to enjoy Japan.
      I enjoyed my first ever guesthouse stay in Seoul, so guesthouse wont be a problem from now on ...
      Tentative dates would be April 4 - 16, 2016.

      First Day Itinerary

      Tokyo Apr 12, 2015 at 5:23 AM

      I will be in Tokyo on a Sunday and will be coming in from Narita airport around 2pm. I would like to maximize my day so after check in I am thinking of going to:

      1) Meiji Shrine - I have read somewhere that it's closed on Mondays but the shrine's website says it's open daily. I also know that I can reach either via Metro (Shinjuku-sanchome station- Meijijingumae station) or JR Line (Shinjuku-Harajuku station). I'm confused on how to reach the shrine after I exit either of the 2 stations. Google shows that it will be a 25 min walk from either stations to the entrance of the Shrine. The website of Meiji Shrine says it will be a 1min walk to the South gate. Which is which? Also, is an hour enough to really enjoy Meiji shrine?

      2) Harajuku/Takeshita Dori - After I exit Meiji Shrine
      3) Omotesando- for Number Sugar/Omotesando Koffee/Crayon House (have their vegetarian buffet for dinner) Japanese food is my favorite! : )

      4) Shibuya - do I still have time? If I don't I can do this the next day.

      Narita Airport to Tokyu Stay Shinjuku

      Tokyo Apr 11, 2015 at 1:11 AM

      To reach Tokyu Stay Shinjuku I will take the NEX to:
      1) Tokyo Station - transfer to Metro (Marunouchi line) - Shinjuku-Sanchome station - exit and reach hotel on 1 min walk.

      2) Shinjuku station which I believe is connected to Shinjuku-Sanchome. I am not sure how far a walk this will be. I will be bringing a luggage although wheeled and small size. Tokyo station seems daunting to a first-timer like me.

      Which is the better way?

      Fuji from Tokyo

      Hi travellers,

      my question is how far (in Kms and by train) is Mt Fuji area from Tokyo (Asakusa)?
      and from which station I should travel from?

      I am travelling to Japan this mid October and I have a day off with JR Pass... so I was thinking in travelling to Fuji area at the end of my trip, if it is not so far and if I can do it in a day-trip.

      Maybe sleeping somewhere in shibuya, could be possible as well.

      Thanks a lot.

      Hi,
      I'm planning a trip to Japan in November. I'd really like to take my kids to Fujikyu Highland Amusement Park (in particular Thomasland). On their website, Fuji-q lists the opening hours from April 1 to Sept 30. Does that mean that the park is closed for the winter? If not, what are the winter hours? Thomasland closes earlier than the rest the park, right?

      Also, what is the best way to get to the amusement park from Tokyo? The Fuji-Q website lists the bus, train & a limousine service.

      Finally, does anyone have recommendations for reasonably priced accommodation near the park?

      Thanks very much.
