      How to go to Shirakawago from Kyoto

      Shirakawa Mar 28, 2014 at 9:11 PM

      Hi everyone! For the first time, I am going to Japan. I only have 4 days to spend and my IT would include:

      Day 1 and 2: Kyoto
      Day 3: Shirikawa
      Day 3: Osaka

      How to go to Shirakawa-go from Kyoto? Is it cheaper to take a bus? I am a budget traveler and would love your suggestions! I found a tour from J-Hoppers for 11, 900 Yen for 1 night and 2 days tour from Kyoto to Shirawaka-go. Is it expensive or should I do it myself and instead spend half day in Shirakawa and stay the night back in Kyoto.

    • First time travel to Japan/Kansai

      Japan Apr 10, 2014 at 2:27 AM

      Hello, we are travelling to Japan for the first time and will arrive at Kansai International Airport. We only want to travel in Kansai and have 12 days altogether: so probably visit Kyoto, Nara, Wakayama peninsula and spend time around Lake Biwa. (Possibly with a trip to Hiroshima if it is not too expensive.) We don't like moving too fast: about 3 days in each place. Can someone advise what train passes/etc we should buy or is it better to just buy the tickets for the local line? Or take buses? Are there any suggestions for nice small towns to stay: rather than big cities. We are happy to just take walks around town or along the lake etc.

      Thanks,
      Jane

      Any suggestions would be great: btw we are an older couple 57 and 75 years old. We go slowly!!

      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

      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.)
