      Flights to Japan from Kamchatka

      Japan Nov 22, 2015 at 7:59 AM

      Hallo peeps,
      I am planning trip to Russia on the transibirian, catching train from Helsinki via St Pete's to Moscow to Vladivostok, than I found flight from Vladivostock to Petropavlosk-Kamchatskiy and exploring Kamchatka for couple of weeks. From there we want to fly to Japan, Sapporo preferably and after spending week there, fly home.
      My plan looks good on paper but now I have a problem, it seems Aeroflot do not fly from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy to Japan.
      And anybody of you lovely peeps give me idea how I can get to Japan from KamĨatka ( plane, boat) without going back to Vladivostok or anywhere else?
      Many thanks!

      P.S same question is posted on Russia forum too

      Tokyo trip for 7days

      Tokyo Nov 10, 2015 at 8:00 AM

      I needed some tips for my Virgin Tokyo trip end of the month.
      1) should I get a nex , suica or pormo card for my travels in Tokyo or it would be better savings for me to get the JR pass since il be using it for my 3days trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen ?
      2) will I be able to use the JR pass for the public transportation in Tokyo such as the metro n buses?
      3) or would it best for me to just purchase a single return trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen?
      4) is it advisable to take an airport bus or express to my hotel (CERELEUN TOKYU HOTEL)?
      5)any tour websites that I can buy Disney sea/land at a much affordable rate?

      Dinner and Lunch Recommendations

      by celem Online Now Mar 13, 2013 at 9:30 AM

      My wife and I are visiting Yokohama by cruise ship, arriving from China and docking at the Osanbashi pier in the late afternoon on Tuesday, April 30th and leaving the next day in the late afternoon. We would like to eat dinner Tuesday evening and lunch on Wednesday and would appreciate recommendations. We do not want a western meal - we are in Japan and want a Japanese meal. I realize that Osanbashi Terminal is close to Chinatown and that Yokohama's Chinatown is large but we will have been in China the previous week and would also like to avoid Chinese since we will have eaten many Chinese meals the previous week.

      Ideal spots for photography

      by SandiM Online Now Aug 24, 2012 at 12:05 PM

      I make somewhat of a living taking photos of scenery (no people) and selling at my local market back in Canada. The last time I was in the Yokohama area I went to Hasedera, Kamakura, Hakone, and Ofuna and took some awesome pics of the shrines and buddha statues, fall colors, etc. This time I am going to be at the Kanagawa Kenmin Hall in November (night concert) and have most of the day to browse some more ideal spots for photos (no people in them). If I've already done the sites mentioned, what other places can I go to to shoot some photos? I thought about Hakkeijima Aquarium but that might be a little far to go? I'm coming from Ueno. I'd like to feature fall colors and perhaps a night skyline before the concert if it's possible? Any other shrines with interesting buddhas or scenery?

      Seeking info regarding site of old Tokugawa era execution ground in Yokohama

      by owenfinn Online Now Oct 19, 2010 at 3:33 AM

      Does anyone have any information regarding the exact location of the old Tokogawa era execution ground in Yokohama? A very macabre question I know, but perhaps apropos for the Halloween season. In a book I was reading, "Young Japan: Yokohama and Yedo" by John R. Black, the author writes about witnessing an execution sometime in the 1860`s in the Tobe area of Yokohama. Also a journalist in Japan in 1880 wrote a story about the execution ground. You can see the story here:

      I have been living in Yokohama for 4 years and was quite surprised to hear about this rather bleak part of Yokohama`s past. I figure there must be some kind of memorial, shrine or, at least a sign marking the site - but, thus far, no luck at all in finding it.

      Beer and language

      by nuppe Online Now Nov 19, 2009 at 1:45 AM

      One more from me: I will go to Tokyo and Yokohama early December. Besides looking around I will start doring a little research related to Japanese beer history. I will also have a meeting at the Kirin (beer company) factory in Yokohama. Then I should need some kind of language support, but I don't think I can afford a proffesional interpreter at this stage. Does anyone know volunteer interpretor services that could be used for such a purpose. ( I realize I maybe will have to do this more properly)

      I will go from Norway to Tokyo medio Decembre this year. The trip will include a visit to Kirin, the foreigners graveyard and Yokohama Archives of hitory. Maybe the Ramen Museum as well. I am interested in food and drink history and the early Yokohama history.

      Are there other places I should consider to visit. Can I spend the evening in Yokohama and get back to Ueno rather late or should I try to get a place to stay in Yokohama. (I know one day in Y. is little, but will hopefully get back.)
