    • From Hilton Shinjuku to Disneysea

      by asitava Online Now Feb 20, 2015 at 11:10 AM

      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.

    • Tokyo Weather in March

      by asitava Online Now Feb 15, 2015 at 4:52 AM

      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.

      Higashi Nihonbashi Station Accessibility

      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..

      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.
