      Taxi from Susukino at 5am on final day of Snow Fest

      Sapporo Yesterday

      6 of us will be staying at Toyoko Inn Hokkaido Sapporo Susukino Kosaten.
      Add: 3-4-1, Minami Shi-jo Nishi Chuo-ku Sapporo-city, Hokkaido 064-0804

      We must catch the 6:15am train from Sapporo JR Station on the 12th of Feb, which is the final day for the Snow Fest. Considering our location being very near the Susukino Snow Fest and the early hour, would it be an issue for us to get cabs? We will need 3 cabs at the same time, departing Susukino at 5:45am. Previously it was easy since we were staying at Mercure Susukino (they ordered the cabs for us) and it wasn't during the festival. This time I doubt Toyoko Inn will assist to book us cabs and also would there be any road closure around there?

      Are there any cab companies we could call to book, which do not charge exorbitantly? We don't speak Japanese..

      Tq, Mel

    • Mixed sex onsen?

      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.

      Airport Bus

      Sapporo 22 hours ago

      We will be staying at Toyoko Inn Susukino Kosaten. Our flight out on a sunday (12th February - last day of Snow Fest) is at 9:20am. The latest we need to get to the airport is 7am. The earliest bus from Susukino is 5:29am. I read that it takes 70-90 minutes. I'm not sure from which point in Sapporo this 70-90 minutes count from.. Would it be enough time for us to reach New Chitose Airport by 7am the latest on a Sunday if we catch the 5.29am bus?

      Secondly, I read that it is cheaper to buy a return ticket. Can we buy a return ticket if we will disembark at Sapporo Station yet return to the airport from Susukino? We will be staying at 2 different locations. At the beginning - Near Sapporo JR Station then later - Susukino.

      Tq, Melanie

      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.

      Yoro-Keikoku Valley Gorge Ravine

      I'll be back in Japan in November on another photography tour and this time my path leads me to Mt Yoro and the valley area by Yoro-Keikoku station (1 day hike). The best website for info is in Japanese, mainly. I can access a couple of pages but need a little help. I want to know how to access the trails from the station. Since there are apparently many, and I have time to only choose one or two, which ones would be the best to attempt in mid-November? Also, where is that red bridge with the 2 humps? And, which onsen can I try out for a couple hours after my hike? Do I need to bring supplies like towels, yukata, soap, etc? Is there any type of hiking trail map online (with or without english, as long as it shows where the onsen and bridge are?). Thanks!

    • Getting to the Narita Hilton from Tokyo - should we go to Narita town or Narita airport?

      Narita Mar 30, 2010 at 6:55 PM

      Hi! We are going to have our first ever trip to Japan this July - just 6 days on the way between NZ and the UK.

      We will be spending our last night in Japan at the Narita Hilton to make our morning international flight easier.

      We will be coming up from Kyoto and I was wondering whether we would be better to go to Narita airport on the Narita express, or to go to Narita town? We will have a JR pass. The Hilton apparently have a free shuttle both from the airport and from Narita town which goes to the train station there - but I am not sure whether it goes as frequently from Narita town as it might do from the airport.

      Can anyone help?

      Thanks!!

      Since I have about 10 hours waiting for my next flight, i wanted to get out and tour the city as much as i can. I was wondering about the Narita Cicle Bus where it takes you to the museum and aeon shopping mall, whether it is part of a tour thing or just a bus that runs through a course (like to museum, mall, airport and the same thing all over again)?? And so, if i do take this bus does that mean that for every stop I take like getting off to visit the temple, i'll have to wait for another one to go to the mall and then finally take a bus from the mall(since i'll be shopping) to the airport? And last question, is this bus crowded - if it is,i'll be planning to leave early so that I wont missed my flight. I hope I can get some help, and hear from anyone soon. Thanks.
