      Ise Dec 14, 2014 at 7:22 PM

      Hi, we are planning to visit Futami area (Bunka mura and wedded rock) this winter. We will come from Yokkaichi and get off at Ise station. What would be the best way to go to Bunka Mura. I read that there is a bus that we can take to go there. How easy is it to use the bus? And from Bunka Mura to the rock, will it be possible to walk?

      Train Travel

      Japan Dec 21, 2014 at 8:12 PM

      Can I get to Tsuwano from Tokyo by train, without going all the way south to Shin Yamaguchi? Is there a train that goes across Japan? Looks like a train may go to the west coast from Fukuyama but cannot find the information. All of the websites I checked route me down to Shin Yamaguchi.

    • Where to travel in Japan in April

      Japan Dec 25, 2014 at 10:46 AM

      Hi

      For our honeymoon, myself and my husband are going to Japan for 13 days at the beginning of April. We fly in to Tokyo and would obviously like to spend a few days there but beyond that have no ideas as yet on where to explore.

      We will be travelling by train (or other local transport) and would like any advice on what to see and what to do whilst we are there. We would like to see some of the amazing places Japan has to offer, whether larger cities or more off-the-beaten-track, as well as any cultural events that might be of interest.

      Any ideas or advice would be much appreciated

      Thanks in advance

      Okinawa Islands itinerary

      Japan Nov 30, 2014 at 9:22 PM

      Hi! First trip to the Islands :-) We are arriving Naha an early morning in the end of March. We have 4 nights before going to Kyoto. I know it’s a bit early going to the beach, but we want to go to Kerama Islands. Aka-Jima ? I’m a diver and want to spend a day diving. A half day whale watching if it’s not to late at the end of March ? Some suggestions for a 4 night itinerary ? Going straight from the airport to Kerama Islands and spend the last day / night in Naha ? Or is 3 night ”too much” on a small island ? Thank you very much ☺

      Nikko May 20, 2011 at 11:15 PM

      I find the trains in Japan to be very confusing. I have found an English schedule link online, but it seems to have all the names wrong. Does anyone know (have heard of) the "Nasuno line" that runs between Saitama and Utsunomiya? I think it's the "Bullet" train, but I'm not sure. Also, there is (according to my link) a train that covers 80KM in 12 minutes. Is that for real?

      Nasu-Shiobara Scenic Area VS Ryuokyo Scenic Area

      Tochigi-ken Nov 1, 2010 at 1:42 PM

      I will be in Utsunomiya on November 13 and I have about 8 hrs to explore. I've already been to Nikko in the past, so I was contemplating either of those two scenic areas listed above. My plan is to leave Tokyo in the morning on the train, explore ONE of those sites, then take the train to Utsunomiya by 5pm. So, looking at the train schedules, it seems easy enough to get to each station, but how is the scenic areas from each one? Also, on November 13, will there still be enough autumn color to enjoy at each of these places? I plan to photograph some waterfalls and pathways, so which is better? Thanks!

      Tobu World/ monkey mountains bus service

      Nikko May 12, 2010 at 3:10 AM

      Hi

      The Nikko part of our Japan trip is coming together,

      but we were looking at doing Tobu World and the kinugawa hot springs ropeway/monkey mountains.
      The only information that we can find is that monkey mountain is about a 30 minute walk from kinugawa Onsen Station. If we do Tobu World first this will make it a 45 minute walk, which could be painful with a 3 year old.
      We cannot find any bus information to get between the two places.

      Any information will be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance

    • Question about the Tobu passes

      Nikko Oct 2, 2009 at 11:21 AM

      I'm arriving in Nikko for 4 days in late October from Utsunomiya, not Tokyo. Can I get an All-Nikko pass to use the unlimited bus rides and just the one-way train back to Tokyo, or would Tobu invalidate my pass if I don't start out from their Asakusa station?

      If I can do this, can I obtain all the necessary pass validations either over the internet or IN Nikko, since I will NOT be going to Tokyo before Nikko. (Am going straight from Narita by bus to Utsunomiya.)

      Is it possible to get to Nikko from Narita Airport without going through Tokyo?
      Is there, perhaps, a direct bus?

      If I rent a car in Narita, how long it will take me to reach Nikko?

      Does it make sense to rent a car for a day or two in Nikko instead of going by buses to onsens and places to see? Will I have to pay for parking at each place? How much?

      How much does bus cost? Is there such thing as an unlimited day bus pass?

      Where to buy a real Japanese Katana?

      I will be visiting Utsunomiya again in the fall and I have always wanted to get a real Japanese Katana, but with so many cute shops to explore, I have not found one yet that sells them and/or i run out of time to look.
