      My husband and I and another couple are doing a Princess cruise around Japan. We have decided to spend 3 nights in Tokyo and then 4 nights in Osaka or Kyoto. Never having been there or know much about the country I'd like other travelers opinions. Our age group early 50s.
      What to do in Tokyo?
      Should we stay in Osaka or Kyoto? Why?
      We all like to walk, like lovely food and aren't huge on tours.
      If you could help, we'd appreciate it.

      How Many Days in Tokyo Prior to Japan Tour.

      by Mikebb Online Now Feb 8, 2014 at 3:22 PM

      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?

      Tokyo - best way to travel around many destinations.

      by Martinez_83 Online Now Jan 19, 2014 at 3:09 PM

      Hi all!!!

      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.

      Hello Everyone

      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

      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.
