      Seven days by rail in Japan

      Japan 16 hours ago

      My wife and I are spending seven days in Japan, the last week in October. We arrive at Tokyo Haneda early morning on 25 October and fly out of Fukuoka (to Seoul) on 1 or 2 November. In between we'd like to travel with a rail pass and visit Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara and Hiroshima, but we'd also like to see some unspoilt and perhaps less visited parts of Japan's countryside, assuming we would have time. Any suggested itineraries?
      We have both been to Tokyo before, separately and briefly, but have not seen anything of the rest of the country.

      Centrair Nagoya to Osaka

      Japan Sep 2, 2016 at 8:33 PM

      Hi all! I will be traveling to Japan in February 2017 with family of 5 (no young kids, all adults). Osaka is our final destination but we will be flying in to Centrair Nagoya and flight will arrive past 8pm. I am thinking we will go straight to Osaka from the airport and the cheapest option seems to be the bus. The time spent on travel is not a concern since it's already late in the evening so there's no hurry to reach Osaka. I just want to ask those who have done this by bus. Is it a good option?

      Also, do we need to travel to the city center before we can take the bus as I have read on the internet? Is there a bus at the airport that goes staright to Osaka?

    • Looking for one special inverted house, which I found in the middle of Tokyo

      Tokyo Aug 30, 2016 at 10:38 AM

      Hello, my name is Andreas.
      And I reall hope, somebody could help me a little bit with my question.

      For about 14 years it was the last time I visited Tokyo.
      But then, one day, while I was strolling through this city, I actually found a wonderful building, which was inverted, about 10 meters high und wide with a spiky roof.
      As far as I can remember, this house was laying on one side of his roof and was maybe pink.
      But in this second point, I am not really sure anymore.

      I don´t have any clue, where I found this house in Tokyo, so I really hope. anybody could give me a little hint^.^

      Thank you very much in advance.

      Asakusabashi Subway Station Accessibility

      Tokyo Sep 2, 2016 at 3:27 AM

      Hi,

      I'm looking at staying near Asakusabashi Station. Will be traveling from Haneda Airport and back.
      I know that I can catch the Keikyu Airport Express from Haneda via Sengakuji to Asakusabashi Subway Station. I also know that there is an elevator at exit A1. However, I can't find the layout map for the Asakusabashi Subway Station. We will be lugging quite large luggage and won't choose this location if we need to lug them up any stairs within the station.
      Would anyone have a link to the layout map, please?

      Tq! Mel

      Typhoon Malakas versus Rain Jacket and Travel Alert

      Tokyo Sep 17, 2016 at 5:25 PM

      Hi, i want to know whether Tokyo has issued any Travel Alert to foreign tourists that are planning to arrive in Narita and Haneda in view of Typhoon Malakas approaching Osaka and Tokyo.

      May I know whether a rain jacket is advisable to be worn on Wednesday instead of buying a long stick umbrella in a Tokyo convenience store? Here in Singapore it costs around 150 SIngapore Dollars to buy a Marmot logo rain jacket. I will arrive in Narita on Wednesday 21 September morning before 12 pm.

      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?

      by Melanie_Putra Online Now 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

      by Melanie_Putra Online Now 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!
