    • 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?

      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,

      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.

      Mt. Fuji ascent

      by stamporama Online Now Jun 10, 2014 at 12:48 AM

      I plan to climb Mt. Fuji on the 4th week this July. As I'll arrive from Kyoto, I read that the closest jump off point is the Fujinomiya 5th station. Just a few questions for those who've climbed from here:

      1. I read that there are stores that rent out any gear (raincoat, walking poles, etc.) that you might need for the climb. Where exactly are they -- at the 5th station, or near the bus/train station?
      2. The Fujinomiya trail is said to be the shortest but steepest route. How steep -- the approximate grade or angle?
      3. After descending, I suppose anyone would be tired and dirty. Since none of the stations or huts have baths, where would be the nearest place to take a shower before riding back on the train? Or is there an onsen in the vicinity?

      Thanks for any replies!

      Fuji five lakes / Mount Fuji in five days

      by matjung Online Now Mar 26, 2013 at 8:12 AM

      I would like to explore Fuji five lakes / Mount Fuji area for about five days in July or August.
      Most travel companies offer one, two or three day trips from Tokyo to Fuji and back.
      I am looking for an itinerary that spends some more time in that area.
      What are your ideas to spend five days in that area?
      Do you remember any budhist temples in that area where one can stay over?
      Are there any good will guides available in that area?

      We are 2 adults and a 4yr old travelling to Hakone for 2 nights. Can anyone suggest budget accommodation that is close to the JR station?
      We also want to do the Hakone round course.

      We are also worried we will not have a selection of places to eat in Hakone. Will this be a problem, especially for the 4yr old?

      Hi,

      My cousin and I will be traveling to Japan from August 12-22, 2010. We are staying in Tokyo for the first 4 nights and then heading to the Mt Fuji area for a few nights. We plan on climbing to the top via the Kawaguchiko 5th station. After the climb, we are looking into staying in Hakone for a night to rest our sore legs in a nice hot spring. Can anyone provide me with information on how to get from the Kawaguchiko 5th station to Hakone? In addition, any recommendations you may have on places to stay in the Hakone area are welcomed.

      Thank you for your help!

      We would like to visit the surrounds of Mt. Fuji as a overnight trip from Tokyo, max 2 nights.

      Have read different sites recommending different towns, particularly Hakone and Yamaguchiko. Which is a better town in terms of transportation from Tokyo, getting to 5th station on Mt Fuji, inexpensive accommodation and good views?

      Will there be other sites of interest in these towns to keep us occupied for 2 days?

      Appreciate any input. Thanks.
