what will be the best train ticket to buy for this trip?

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?
I am planning to make a travel to Tokyo. I am stuck in between Disneyland or DisneySEA. I have been to Hong Kong Disneyland, just wanting to know is TDL same as HKDL? And what is the main difference between Disneyland and DisneySEA?
In addition, I am also planning to stay there. I know Disneyland itself have Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, Miracosta and Ambassador Hotel. Which one is the best among the three?
Thank you for your time!
We are going to Tokyo for the first and probably last time this September. We will be in Tokyo for 5 days prior to getting on our cruise ship that will travel to Mt Fuji and other areas.
My husband is 77 and I am 73 we love to walk. We want to see culture and history and gardens and temples.
I need advice on were to stay (not real expensive) and how do I find a tour guide that can show us the Tokyo history.
Is the Hop On Hop Off Bus worth doing with a language barrier?
I will guide my American friends through Tokyo. What's your recommended restaurant to enjoy with them?
They love to drink Sake, and hope to go to Izaka-ya which is crowded with local people.
Hopefully it costs under 5000 yen per person.
After many, many years of dreaming about trip to Tokyo I have finally decided to do it this year and together with my fiancee we will be traveling to Tokyo this April for +/- 2 weeks. After visiting quite a few websites and looking through few travel guides about Tokyo we have decided to split our trip between Tokyo (5-7 days), Kyoto (2 days) and Kamakura, Nikko, Hakkone and Mt Fuji (1 day each). With that in mind can someone be so kind to advise what would be best and reasonably priced way to travel around those destinations? Are there any set-priced tickets which we could use throughout our whole stay which would incl. all our side trips?
Many thanks in advance for all replies.
I am planning on visiting Tokyo towards the end of March. I am a bit overwhelmed by all the different hotels, airbnb, and couchsurfers available. To narrow down my search, I am asking what prefect I would get the most from staying.
I am late 20's male looking to explore the cherry blossoms, the metro, architecture, parks, and temples during the day. At night I would definitely be looking for very lively bars and clubs catering to either tourists or locals.
Thank you all
My husband and I are planning on going to Bangkok but we want to stop in Tokyo for 2-3 days. (we will be flying from Newark, NJ) What would be a good "not too expensive" place to stay? We are on a budget trip but we are aware that Tokyo is a very expensive city. We have traveled around the world and we don't really mind about fancy 5 stars hotels, we only need a clean and safe place to sleep. Thank you!
Hi, We are a group of 6 adults and 2 children travelling to Japan in April. We are planning on staying 4 days (1 day will be for Kamakura visit) / 5 nights in Tokyo. We will than go to Kyoto and spend 4 and a half days in Kyoto in which one of these days will be spent visiting Nara.
I would like to know based on other travelers experience if this allocation of days seams sufficient? Can we see the best of Tokyo in 3 full days or should we forget about Kamakura (since we will be spending some days in Kyoto visiting gardens and temples) and spend 4 full days in Tokyo?

Hi all, I have been to Tokyo twice with a friend but am now planning to visit on my own next September. I guess I'm looking for advice on visiting Tokyo as a single lady. Is there anything I should or shouldn't do, any places I should stay as I've always stayed in a hotel before? Ideally I'd like to take in as much of Tokyo as possible in my two week visit & maybe even see a band if possible & I definitely want to see some baseball (loved this last time I went). However I'm not 100% sure how to go about this on my own so any advice would be really great. Thanks.

Hi...I'll be in Tokyo this December. Can anyone suggest a place where I could purchase good quality frozen steaks like Matzusaka or Kobe beef? I know one can easily get them at the meat section at Takashimaya but I was hoping to get them a bit cheaper maybe someplace else in Tokyo...thanks.
Are smaller stores in the Ginza area open on Sunday ? please send detailed instructions on how to get to Hundred Stay Hotel in Shinjuku 2-27-7 Hyakunincho, Shinjuku-ku from Narita. Thanks so much.
Hello all! I was hoping you could help me clarify a thing or two about my upcoming Tokyo honeymoon. We are really looking forward to it and have the majority of it planned out already. The one thing that I’m still having an issue with is getting from the Narita Airport to my hotel (the Dai Ichi Hotel Seafort) in Shinagawa. During the day this seems like it would be very easy with lots of different options, but my flight does not arrive to Narita until 8:45 PM. We are trying to figure out what the most cost effective and direct way to do it without having to lug our bags on the Subway with us or cough up the dough for a cab ride. These are our options that I could narrow it down to, but I was wondering if anyone else had some insight.
1. If we’re done with customs, luggage pick up by 9:25PM I could take the Limo Bus to the Haneda Airport. Once we’re at Haneda we’re significantly closer and could grab a taxi or the monorail to get to the Hotel.
2. When I plug my flight information into here: http://naa.ivcreation.com/pc_us/ it correctly has me arriving at 20:45 but then pops up with this info:
Route1 Departing Narita-Airport at10:55-Arriving Tennozu-Isle at13:09
1Times Travel time 2h14m
Departing at 10:55
Arriving at 13:00 Airport bus routes 2h5m
Tennozu-IsleHotel Tokyo Seafort
Arriving at13:09 Walking 9m
Which leads me to believe this bus is departing at 10:55 AM as opposed to 10:55 PM.
I was hoping someone with experience might be able to help simplify the best travel methods for us to use. This is really the last big piece of the puzzle that needs to be taken care of, then I could put it to rest and focus all my worrying on the wedding :)
Hey guys, a friend and me are in Tokyo for 2 weeks during christmas and silvester.
I read that they celebrate these days very private, so what should we do on this days?
What would you recommend?
If someone is in tokyo the same time, feel free to contact me, the more people the more fun :)
how do you call these relatively cheap beer bars (usally not on the mainstreets more on the back hidden between buidlings) where you also eat something: business guys come after work to get drunk (wooden cupbaords above the tables for the laptop cases)?
We've been here very close to Niwa hotel and it was such great bargain and reliable good food that we'll go again in a minute
I am traveling from Chicago to Beijing and I have 20 hour lay over at the Narita airport - arriving 8:30P. I plan to spend the night in downtown Tokyo--have reservation at the Aisia Center of Japan Hotel, 8-10-32 Akasaka,, Minatoku, Akasaka. What would be the most straightforward transportation from the airport to the hotel? best option? If train, what train and station station to get off. Finally, My wife and I are over 65, what would be available to see on Friday night and Saturday morning prior to catching a 5:30P flight at Narita airport. Your suggestions/recommendations would be appreciated.
Next month I will be visiting Japan for the first time. I'll have my iPhone with me and it'll be unlocked. Can anyone offer any advice about where I could go to get a SIM card and data plan for Japan at a reasonable rate? Note: I'll be there for exactly 3 weeks, then off to Singapore and Hong Kong.
