Hi, wanted to know what is the best way to go to Disneysea from Hilton Shinjuku. Is it better to take a metro from Nishi-Shninjuku to Tokyo station and then take a JR train or is it better to take a metro from Tochomae to Yoyogi and take a bus to Disney Resort ? From Google Earth, I see that the Yoyogi station does not have overbridge. Does Yoyogi have a subway to cross the railway track ? Apology for asking boring questions, but small details help. Thanks in advance for the answers.
Hi, I will be in Tokyo (with my wife and a 9 yr old son) from 14th - 21st Mar and in Kyoto 21st Mar - 27th Mar. I see that the temperature varies between a max of 13 deg and min of 4 deg celsius. Does it mean that reasonable amount of winter clothing will be needed ? Also I see that the rainfall increases markedly in March from Feb. Does it mean I should expect most of the days to be rainy / cloudy ? Also when it rains, does it pour (like Monsoon in India) or is it more like a drizzle ? Also should I take one of the Mt Fuji trips from Tokyo in case expecation is that the mountain will hide behind a cover of cloud ? Apology for so many questions but given that all are related to weather, though I should ask them in one place. Thank you for your help in advance.

I'm staying at Toyoko Inn Tokyo Nihonbashi. Will be departing via Haneda Airport and I'd done research on Hyperdia.com for the best train route to Haneda. Found departure from Higashi Nihonbashi Station to be the best (Requiring no change of train). I need to know whether there is any exit at this station which has elevator/escalator to street level? We have fairly large luggage and lugging down the stairs from street level would be fairly tough..
Hi, I will be having my holiday in Tokyo from 30thDec to 6thJan. Im not quite sure how the JR-Pass works. Does it cover all the train fares around Tokyo ? And if i were to travel from Tokyo to Nagoya and maybe to Osaka, then return back to Tokyo via bullet train, does the JR-Pass covers the fare or must i purchase a different set of ticket ?
And also, do i need to buy the ticket online or is it available at tokyo ?
Thank you very much :)

I'm going to Tokyo next month. Would like to visit a vibrant sector of Shinjuku with alleys, shops and cafes. I presume I can find these at Kabukicho? Never ventured east of Shinjuku, only done a bit of west and south. Can anyone recommend how to get there from the station? I don't really want to go to the seedy part of Kabukicho...
Hey all, we (a couple around 30 years old) are travelling to Tokyo for new years eve celebrations and it seems it's not so easy to find a good spot to eat and celebrate on 31st of December. Is there anyone who knows a good restaurant (we prefer not to celebrate in big hotels) downtown where there is a special newyear's celebration or a newyear's eve menu and countdown? Thanks so much for your help in advance. Best regards,
Hi! Is it possible to go to Tokyo from Osaka then go back again after in one day? How long is the travel time? What line of train and how much is it? Thanks
I am planning for a trip to Tokyo from 18 to 26 Oct 2014.
I would like to find out are most shopping areas in Tokyo still selling light clothing or are they only mostly sell winter wear?
If there are places still selling casual, any advise where can I find?
I am asking this because I need to plan how much currency to exchange.
As I am staying in warm country- Singapore, I do not need to buy winter clothing.
Therefore, if Tokyo is mostly selling cold wear in October, I do not need to exchange too much currency.
Hope to hear some advise.

This is the first time I am travelling to Japan, would like to ask about spending nightlife or dinner in Tokyo and I saw Yurakucho is great like we have in temple street Hongkong.
1. Any experience of this area for dinner? is it expensive for tourist price?
2. is it easy to find from Yurakucho JR station?
3. what time the food vendors will close at Yurakucho Gado ***a
I understand that there are airport buses that drop passengers at various hotels? Are these signposted in English and what is cost / frequency?
Also, is there a similar service from Tokyo hotels to cruise ships at Yokohama?
