    • Mixed sex onsen?

      Japan 4 hours ago

      Are there any onsens which are mixed sex in or near Kyoto or Tokyo?

      I thought I ran into one online but can't find it now. I believe it said there's a women's onsen there and a mixed onsen (which are mainly men).

      My wife and I will be there Dec 9 till 17th.

      If you can't think of these types of onsens, please let us know of any which are outdoors and natural.

      Thanks! 

    • Kansai Area Tour (7 nights)

      Japan Nov 6, 2016 at 7:07 PM

      I am traveling for the first time with my family and friends (15 persons in total).

      For 7 nights, we will sleep at Kashihara, Nara.

      We are planning to have a two-day tour in Kyoto, one day tour in Kobe and Himeji, one day tour in Nara, and the rest in Osaka. Is Kansai Area Pass and Osaka Amazing Pass a good idea?

      Any suggestions for the best PASS (or passes) to avail (or cheapest travel expense plan) for this itinerary?

    • Overnight activities in Sapporo

      Sapporo Nov 30, 2016 at 6:57 PM

      Hello,

      Can anyone recommend any activities/shopping mall/arcades/book stores that operate 24/7?
      My partner and I are unable to find any accommodation in Sapporo center or Shin Sapporo on Christmas Eve (24th of Dec 2016) at this point, and it appears that we will be accommodation-less for the night.

      I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can suggest anything we can do to kill the overnight hours.

      Arigatou,
      Yang

      cheapest way to travel and visit Tokyo and Kyoto from Los Angeles

      Kyoto Nov 12, 2016 at 1:35 PM

      I am thinking of flying into Kyoto from Los Angeles and then departing from Tokyo. Originally, I was going to fly into Tokyo, visit a few days (I have 10 visiting vacation days) and then go to Kyoto and then return to Tokyo for my flight home. I have since found out how expensive it is to travel by train. I am looking into the JR pass which is $269 for 7 days. That is a good deal I believe. So, If fly into Osaka, take the train for $30 to Kyoto, then stay a few days there, then start the 7 day pass while there and use it to go to Tokyo and use it there for five days and then use it to go to the airport too to leave, is that a good economical idea? I have checked plane prices and there is about $100 increase in the flight to Osaka vs. Tokyo.

    • Onbashira Festival

      Nagano Jan 19, 2016 at 5:20 PM

      I'm going to be in Japan for a couple weeks in April, and I want to attend the Onbashira festival while i'm there. I only have enough time to stay in Nagano for 1 day, and I only want to see the part of the festival where they ride the logs down the hills. I can arrange to be there on either April 8, 9, 10 -- does anyone know which day I should choose so that I would be able to see them ride the logs? I can't seem to find a detailed schedule of the festival anywhere online, so I would really appreciate your help. Thanks!

    • Mt.Fuji or Nagana

      Nagano Sep 14, 2013 at 12:31 AM

      My husband, 13 year old daughter and 10 year old son are going to japan for a 12 day holiday from 24th of November on. We are from Cairns, Australia and our children have never traveled or experienced snow. We have a Mt. Fuji tour booked but i don't know if you can touch snow or only see it from afar (we are going to the fifth station). My question is should we take them to Nagana and go see the Snow monkeys instead? We only have 4 days in Tokyo and one of those is for Disneyland and we want to experience other parts of Tokyo so i don't think we have time to do both of the above. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • Shiraito Falls bus route. possible round trip around Mt. fuji?

      Nagano Apr 4, 2012 at 1:07 PM

      Hello,

      I am travelling to japan late august (yes i'm a little afraid for the hot weather, but i couldn't plan another date because of my job).

      First of all, my trip will be mostly based on photography. Culture/Architecture both old and modern/landscapes/nature. I'm taking with me a 5dII and 50d with 50 1.8 and 24 ts-e 3.5 and 70-200 F4 with compact tripod.

      First i will be visiting Kyoto for 4 days, photographing culture/temples/geishas in gion etc. I planned to visit Osaka for one (one of those 4) day because someone recommended me.

      Then after 4 days, i have one day before my 5 day stay in Tokyo, which will be completely dedicated to modern architecture (nightscapes/long exposures) and markets (fish). Ofcourse there's also time reserved for some shopping there.

      Anyway, to get back to that one day. I love to photograph some landscapes as well. And the ***aito falls attracted me as Lake Yamanaka to photograph Mt. Fuji. Now to visit the Shiraito falls there's only documentation on a bus travelling from Karuizawa St. which takes 30 minutes. That's not so long but when i check google maps, it's quite a distance. I was wondering if i could stay at a hotel close to the lake mentioned (Lake Yamanaka) and travel from there by bus to the Shiraito Falls. (i know there is a road going from the lake to the falls, the 138 and 139 called the fuji panorama line) I don't know if there's a direct connection between those POI, but i sure hope so. I would really like to spend that one day photographing both the waterfalls and Mt. Fuji from a lake with a great view, together with an easy accessible hotel nearby. I don't want to hike for hours! After that i hope my batteries are fully charged to visit Tokyo (which isn't that far from Mt. fuji anymore).

      If you have any other suggestions, please let me know. I would really love to hear your suggestions.

      Thanks in advance,

      Marcus

      p.s. I have absolutely no skills in japanese language.
