      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?

      Japan Dec 5, 2016 at 5:24 PM

      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! 

      Airport Bus

      Sapporo Yesterday

      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

    • 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.
