    • 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?

    • Mixed sex onsen?

      Japan 10 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.

      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.

      Fast ferry to Busan?

      Fukuoka Jan 11, 2015 at 4:52 AM

      Hi there,

      My wife and I are travelling to Japan for the first time at the end of July / start of August. We've got 2 1/2 weeks where we're planning to travel most of the central and southern part of Japan (Honshu).

      We've got a plan to get to Fukuoka by train, and take the ferry over to Busan in South Korea, staying overnight there and returning the next day.

      Could anyone help me with any recent experience of the Beetle fast ferry I've heard about? How easy is it to book and are there any issues visa-wise with departing and re-entering Japan on a tourist visa?

      Many thanks,

      Buying a Kimono / Yukata in Fukuoka.

      Fukuoka Oct 25, 2014 at 2:03 PM

      Hello there,

      I'm interested in buying a new Kimono / eventually Yukata. Is there any good shop in Fukuoka that you would recommend?
      I'm looking for something rather classic / Unicolor parts. (Kimono, Juban, Haori, Obi and Hakama)
      Unless the prices are an absolute killer, I would rather not buy them from second hand stores.

      I have been looking around the web, but have only found suggestions about shops in either Kyoto or Tokyo / Web shops (about which I'm a bit skeptical)

      Thanks a lot for your Answers and Suggestions!

    • Ideas for itinerary in and around Fukuoka City

      Fukuoka Nov 4, 2013 at 5:24 AM

      Hi,
      I'm spending about a week in Fukuoka City with my family (4 of us - spouse, 2 kids who are close to 20, myself) and we have about a week. I'm trying to put together a quick itinerary at short notice and I'm wondering if I could have recommendations on what to see/do/eat in and around Fukuoka. Attractions outside of the city however would have to be day trips.
      Will be arriving in Japan at the end of Nov, leaving about 8 - 9 days later, on Dec 8.
      Thanks.

    • 5 days in Kyushu

      Fukuoka-ken May 1, 2013 at 4:23 AM

      My wife and I will be spending 5 days in Kyushu, travelling from Osaka. We would prefer to base ourselves in a central location and travel to other centres (by rail mostly) on a daily basis, probably in the northern part of Kyushu. Please recommend a suitable base .e.g. Would Kumamoto be a practical place to travel to most other northern centres such as Beppu, Nagasaki etc. It seems to be on a main rail line? Thanks.

    • HELP! Need Tickets to Kitakyushu Kodo Show in October and Don't Speak Japanese!

      Kitakyushu Aug 28, 2012 at 2:14 PM

      Hello,

      I am planning a trip to Japan with my parents and my sister in October and my dad is a huge fan of the Kodo drumming group. He sees them whenever they come to Toronto. My sister and I found out that they are actually performing in Japan while we are there and we wanted to surprise him with tickets to a show, but the only way that we could work it into our itinerary was their show in Kitakyushu on October 7th. Unfortunately, navigating the theatre's japanese website has been difficult to say the least, not speaking/reading japanese, and we have managed to gather that the tickets went on sale at the beginning of August to members, but that window for purchasing tickets has since closed (not to mention the fact that they don't ship tickets abroad and we don't have an address in Japan to ship to). In any case, it appears as though (and we have no idea how accurate this info is) a very small number of tickets will be available at the theatre on the day of the performance.

      Does anyone out there have any insight to lend to this situation? Is there any other way to get tickets beforehand? I fear that we will show up at the box office on the day of the concert, there will be no tickets left to purchase, and we will have re-routed our itinery to Kyushu for nothing. If anyone can help navigate the website, or provide any help whatsoever on how we might be able to score tickets, I would be eternally grateful!

      Thanks,

      Fukuoka vs Osaka

      Fukuoka Jun 11, 2012 at 3:50 AM

      Hi, I'd like to visit Fukuoka in November. Would like to know how Fukuoka is like compared to Osaka. I had a great time in Osaka shopping because the shopping was very compacted into a shopping strip eg. Shinsaibashi-suji. Whether rain or cold, it was easy to just nip into shops as I walked down the covered walkway.
      Does Fukuoka have a shopping strip like Osaka? Reason I ask this question is because I'm a shopping tourist, and dislike 'scattered' shopping as I don't like to walk too much to shop.

    • JR vs. Subway confusion

      Fukuoka-ken Jan 16, 2011 at 10:56 AM

      Hello!

      Is anyone familiar with rail transportation around Fukuoka? I'm going to be living there for around 3 months, so I'm trying to figure out the details.

      From where I'm staying, my destination would be Akasaka station, near the "heart" of the city.

      From what I understand, I have 2 options:

      I can walk 5 minutes to the local JR station, ride to Hakata station, and then transfer to the Kuko subway line until I reach Akasaka.

      OR

      I can walk 15 minutes to the Nishitetsu Kaizuka line and ride the same subway train, without transfers, all the way to Akasaka. (At least, that's what it looks like based on their subway map. Please correct me if I'm wrong).

      subway.city.fukuoka.lg.jp/en...

      Here's my problem: Since I'm going to be staying for 90 days, I'd like to get a 90-day prepaid pass. So, if I choose the first option, will I need to get both a prepaid subway pass AND a prepaid JR pass? Or do they have a "one size fits all" pass that works for both? Both the JR and Subway sites aren't very helpful. Obviously I don't mind walking for 10 more minutes if it means I can save money.

      Thank you in advance!
