    • 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! 

    • 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.

      Kanazawa Apr 25, 2014 at 10:27 AM

      We arrive in Kanazawa on June 14th by cruise ship.Are there any Goodwill guide services that we can book for our day in town ? ..... we arrive early morning and we are in port for 12 hours.
      If possible we would love to experience any of the local markets including Omi-Cho market and also the geisha district.....We are seafood and sushi lovers so would love to experience a local non-tourist restaurant that specializes in these foods.

      Better area to stay - Korinbo vs Omicho Market?

      Kanazawa Jan 19, 2013 at 7:41 PM

      Four of us ladies will be visiting Kanazawa for 3 nights and deliberating between staying at either the Toyoko Inn Korinbo or a ryokan near the Omicho market (Sumiyoshiya). Would anyone be able to tell me which location is better in term of accessibility, surrounding places to eat in the evening, prettier, etc? We plan to visit most of the attractions from the Higashi Chaya District down to the Nishi Chaya District.

      Toyoko Inn is cheaper at ¥3433/pax/night with breakfast (Sumiyoshiya charges ¥4900/pax/night w/out breakfast), and is in a modern shopping district with easy bus access. However, its room is really small in comparison to the ryokan. The ryokan also of cause has more charm. I would like to know whether it is worth the additional cost of the ryokan? Wouldn't want to spend more for the ryokan just to discover that the immediate vicinity in the evening has nothing to offer and the surrounds aren't as nice as Korinbo.

      Secondly, Read that the bus services stop pretty early. How is the walk between Toyoko Inn Korinbo and Kazuemachi Chaya District at night? Is it an interesting walk or we go pass dark, quiet and dull places? This is in incase we decide to stay at Korinbo. One of the days we plan to visit Kazuemachi Chaya District at dusk since I heard that it is beautiful at that time. If we have dinner around there we may miss the last bus back to Korinbo. Thus, wondering if it is ok to walk? I know the distance is only something like 10 minutes but is it a pleasant walk for women? Are there many places for dinner around there or we better off looking for dinner at Korinbo?

      Thanks!

      Kanazawa Light-Up Bus Pick-Up & Drop-Off Points

      Kanazawa Sep 16, 2012 at 3:33 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I will be visiting Kanazawa for 3 nights April 20-23rd. I researched the Kanazawa Light-Up bus and found its schedule and all the bus stops. The website mentions that it starts from Terminal #1 at East Gate of Kanazawa Station and takes 32minutes. My question is can we get on and off this bus from any of the stop or only from the station? Ie, if I stay in Korinbo it will be easier for me to start and end the tour at the Korinbo Stop (No7).

      Thanks!
      Mel
