      Hakone Tozan Bus "K" from Moto Hakone-ko to Kuzuhara

      Hakone 7 hours ago

      I will be doing the Hakone Loop from Gora to Owakidani, Lake Ashi, Motohakone then to Hoeiso Ryokan near Hakone Yumoto. This will be on the 30th of October (Friday). I read that the Hakone Tozan Bus "K" passes the ryokan (Bus stop - Kuzuhara) on its way from Moto Hakone-ko to Hakone Yumoto.

      1. Would anyone be able to provide the time-table for Line "K" from Moto Hakone'ko to Kuzuhara please?
      2. Would you know how long will this journey between Moto Hakone-ko to Kuzuhara takes?

      I read that there is an express bus Line "R" which even though doesnt't pass Kuzuhara on its way to Hakone Yomoto, but being express, will be fast. However, this only operates on weekends and holidays?

      Tq, Mel

      Odawara Castle

      Odawara May 4, 2015 at 3:06 AM

      I'll be visiting Odawara Castle on Oct 31 (Saturday) on my way from Hakone Yumoto to Shinjuku. I need some clarification please..

      1. I know that the castle closes at 5pm. Is this just for the entrance into the castle building or the ground as well? I would like to hang around the castle ground until twilight for an opportunity to take photo of the castle during the 'blue' hour. Wondering if the ground remains opened after 5pm?

      2. What time is twilight at the end of October?

      3. I plan to ride the Odakyu Romancecar back to Shinjuku. Can I purchase the Romancecar from Hakone Yumoto to Shinjuku but break the journey and jump off for a few hours at Odawara? Or I need to go from Hakone Yumoto by Hakone Tozan Railway to Odawara and board the Romancecar from Odawara to Shinjuku?

      4. Any recommendation for dinner option near the Odawara Station?

      Tq! Mel

    • Luggage/Himeji

      Himeji May 24, 2015 at 3:16 PM

      Hey, on the way from Osaka to Hiroshima I'm planning to spend the day at Himeji.
      I'm wondering what to do with luggage though.
      I've read the station has a few lockers but I was wondering about a backup plan if they are all full, other than forwarding luggage.
      Any ideas? So far my brother only has "leaving cases around so they get taken into lost property and then collecting them later". Inventive but risky.
      Thank you!

    • Help with Climing Mt Fuji translation

      Japan May 21, 2015 at 8:11 PM

      Hi all - I've booked a place to stay while climbing Mt Fuji (8th Station). So far a combination of bad high-school Japanese has got me through - but I'm a little stumped with the translation on one bit of the site. I think it is talking about being quiet for those who want to sleep - but I just want to make sure it doesn't prohibit us from getting up at 1am to start the trek for the top.

      富士山の山小屋は旅館や民宿とは違い、富士山山頂を目指すための登山基地で、夜中に出発される方は早い時間からお休みになっています。館内で宴会を行い、騒ぐような行為は、他のお客様の安眠を奪ってしまいますし、3100mの高所での飲酒は高山病の危険性を高くし、お客様自身の登頂の可能性を低くしてしまいます。そのような理由から、太子舘では館内禁酒とさせて頂いております。

      Thanks!!!

      3 Week Itinerary

      Japan May 17, 2015 at 8:04 PM

      Hi There. We are trying to lock down our 3 week holiday itinerary for Japan. We love food, mixing with the locals and the culture and seeing the different "styles" of any country we visit. This is what we are thinking:
      5 Nights in Tokoyo (with perhaps days trips to Hakone / Yokohama)
      3 Nights Takayama + 3 Nights Kanazawa + 3 Nights Kyoto + 3 Nights Osaka + 1 Night Koyosan (Buddhist Temple Stay) + 3 Nights Kobe
      I dont like to stay anywhere for less than 3 nights as we like to soak up the atmosphere and culture of a place
      Id love your thoughts on this current itinerary (proas / cons) or any alternate suggestions
      Thanks very much!

      10 days in Japan for the first time

      Japan May 18, 2015 at 8:43 AM

      we plan to visit Japan for the first time, most probably in late september for 10 full days but I'm confused a)how to create a good itinerary and b)how not to break the bank (I know japan is expensive so any reliable budget advise is highly appreciated)
      so,
      1)high on my list are TOKYO, KYOTO, NARA, HIROSHIMA, should we add more to those or 10 days is very pushing?
      how to do this starting from Osaka?
      2)we're flying into OSAKA(KIX, Kansai Intl) and fly out from TOKYO(NRT, Narita)
      does this make any sense or should we fly in/out from the same city?
      3)are those cities connected by the fast train?
      4)should we buy a Japan Rail Pass? it costs 29,110 yen (more than 210euro) for 7days. Or single tickets for train/buses will be cheaper for us?

What about withdrawing from ATMs? I don't want to bring so much cash. Can I also use a debit card in paying for hotel, etc?

      Fuji from Tokyo

      Fuji Sep 27, 2007 at 12:33 PM

      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.
