      Transit at Sengakuji Station

      Tokyo Oct 13, 2016 at 7:19 PM


      I need to go from Asakusabashi Station to Haneda Airport. I have already checked Hyperdia and see there are direct as well as some that require 1 transit at Sengakuji Station, ie:

      Can anyone help to clarify about the change of train at Sengakuji please? I see only 1 minute wait. Is the change at the same platform or the platform across?
      I would try to catch the direct train from Asakusabashi to Haneda of cause, but just in case..

    • Suggestions on Itinerary

      Hokkaido Oct 4, 2016 at 5:50 PM

      Hi fellow VTs,
      I need help in your views. I be travelling with grp of 4 (2 couples). We be travelling to Japan nxt yr late march - early April (14 days). This will be our 1st trip to Japan. We have booked a return flight to New Chitose Airport, Hokkaido. Our plan was to travel to Tokyo first then head up back north to Hokkaido. I understand that the Japan Rail Pass is valid for the Shinkanse from Hakodate to Tokyo. As we are most likely to purchase the 7 days pass, we will only be in Tokyo for 7 days then head back up to Hokkaido where we plan to base ourselves at Sapporo.
      (1)Once arrived, how do we travel from New Chitose Airport to Hakidote? Via train/bus.. how long & how much?
      (2)For Hokkaido, is there any similar travel pass like Japan Rail pass? Is it well connected.. If yes, how much?
      (3) Any suggestion on places of interest for Hokkaido. We are nature loving people. We love sightseeing around mountains, villages etc. I heard that Hokkaido has one of the beautiful villages in Japan. Is it true..? If yes is it easily accessible via bus/train.

      Sorry to trouble u with these question. We are open to any suggestions and can't wait to hear from u guys.
      Thank you in advance.

      from Toyoko Inn Hokkaido Sapporo-eki Kita-guchi to NHK Bldg by Toho Subway Line

      Sapporo Oct 2, 2016 at 1:00 PM


      We need to travel with heavy luggage from Toyoko Inn Hokkaido Sapporo-eki Kita-guchi to NHK Bldg by Toho Subway Line.

      Sapporo Toho Line Subway Station
      I know the nearest exit at Sapporo Station to the hotel is exit 16. However, that just has stairs. Is there any route via Paseo or JR Tower Hotel Nikko which we can use whereby we won't be encountering any stairs on the way to the subway station?

      NHK Bldg
      When I searched Google Street View I saw an exit very near the TV Tower with an elevator (Northwest corner of the Odori Park section where the tower stands). However, I can't seem to find the exit number.. Thus, I won't know which exit to use from within the station.

      Would anyone be ably to assist by directing us to the nearest Toho Line's exits with escalator/elevator at both the Sapporo Toho Line Subway Station and Odori Toho Line Subway Station, please?
      Secondly, would appreciate if anyone can post the links to the layout maps of Toho Line Sapporo and Odori Stations, please?
      We are hoping to be able to travel between these two places easily and quickly with our trolley bags, without encountering any stairs..

      Tq, Mel

      Hi, this will be my first trip to Japan. I would like to stay primarily in Tokyo, I think, in a hostel, but want to see Kyoto. I want to see old architecture and gardens, as well as museums, etc. I also want to see Modern Tokyo too, but am not sure how much time I should spend in each city, as I am limited on time.

      Also, any suggested day trips? I like to visit large cities, but then contrast them with a day trip to a smaller more traditional place.

      Japan Sep 29, 2016 at 8:50 AM

      Hi All!

      I would like to visit japan on mid february 2017 for 10 days with my BF.
      And i want to visit Tokyo, Fuji Q, Shirakawa-go, Zao onsen in yamagata for snow boarding, and will fly back to my hometown from tokyo.
      I still confused to arrange the itinerary. But I will buy JPrail pass for 7 days, so to go to that place i will use shinkansen.

      Day 1: arrived at haneda in the morning, tokyo sightseeing
      Day 2: go to fuji Q and heading back to tokyo
      Day 3: Tokyo disney sea
      Day 4: Shirakawago, I dont think its possible to do return trip from tokyo to shirakawago (or it is possible?)
      Day 5: Heading to Tokyo
      Day 6: Yamagata - Zao, return to tokyo
      Day 7: Kyoto
      Day 8: Kyoto, return to tokyo
      Day 9: Tokyo
      Day 10: Going back home

      I think my itinerary is messed up, isnt it?

    • Itinerary & general cost of living

      Tokyo Oct 1, 2016 at 1:39 AM

      Thinking of doing a stop over in Japan Dec/Jan 207/2018 - going via Japan to New Zealand with NZ airlines - on the bucket list for 2 wrinklies!!

      Want to see Narito/Hanenko/Kyoto and was thinking of remaining in Tokyo and doing day excursions even though they're long and expensive - Not into hiking/walking cable cars/ropeways excludes many of the Mt Fuji Haven't got the confidence to explore on our own given the language probs - just want to see and experience some of the culture - but definitely no reptiles/snakes as I've got a big phobia - don't mind doing a reasonable amount of walking. Looking at Viator & City Discovery Tours ? - used Viator before

      We've also heard horror stories about the cost of living - so we thought that by booking hotels a year out on a free [cancellation basis we'd do a reasonable price - will only stay in hotels with ensuite, but what about food? Anything food that is simple and cheap would be acceptable - quite happy to eat in McDs for a few days to keep prices down

      All suggestions much appreciated - know it's a long way off but there is so much planning to do which I will find loads of fun - hoping to slot in Singapore & Hong Kong - kids watch your inheritance disappear!!

    • First place to visit when you arrived in the afternoon

      Kyoto Aug 22, 2016 at 8:35 AM

      We (me,wife and a toddler) are travelling to kyoto with a very limited time (3 Days 2 Nights). I want to know which part of kyoto is the best place to start our itinerary. We will arrive in the afternoon and I want to maximize that day. Is Kinkakuji + Arashiyama itinerary possible for a afternoon trip (half-day)?

    • Kyoto - pls advise about planned itinerary!

      Kyoto May 16, 2016 at 8:27 AM


      We are a group of 8, including 2 seniors and 4 young children.

      This is our tentative itinerary for a long weekend in May. I would really appreciate some advice to firm up the details please.

      THURS night arrive and stay at airport hotel.

      FRI - go to Nara for half a day, then Kyoto. Check in at Gion accommodation. Visit Fushimu shrine.

      SAT - Explore the Higashiyama area - Kiyomizu temple, Some of the Philosophers path, maybe some other temples. Gion district.

      SUN - Arashiyama area in the morning. Nijojo in the afternoon

      MON - go to Osaka (Namba) to eat street foods (Kuromon Ichiba market) and shop, fly out that night.

      I am most concerned to work out transport arrangements first, so I can buy passes or book a vehicle.

      1. I have read that the trains to Nara from KIX is not so easy and our luggage may be a problem. Would it be a good alternative to rent a car for the journey?

      It looks like it is under 1.5hrs drive to Nara from KIX and then another 1hr to Kyoto, where we will return the car and use local transport.

      2. If we do this, should we try to visit Arashiyama by car as well, given it is the furtherest attraction on our itinerary? Would there be parking available in the early afternoon on a Friday?

      3. If the self drive is not a good idea, which would be the best pass to cover travel from KIX (via Nara) to Kyoto and back (via Osaka)?

      4. Please suggest any changes that might work better - should we skip Nara to simplify the transport arrangements or to spend more time in Kyoto or Osaka? Any attractions we should add or skip?

      5. I've heard traffic jams can be a problem in Kyoto. Are taxis or buses affected?

      I will finetune the planning for these in the coming week, but appreciate any advice you have:

      6. Suggestions of foods or places to eat, would be most welcome. Would I need to book ahead, since we are a large group?

      7. I am just planning to see the bamboo grove in Arashiyama. I know there is a monkey park, but we're not so keen.

      Would there be enough time afterwards to visit the Nijojo in the afternoon? I was thinking the nightingale floors would be interesting to see and the castle would be a good example of a different side of Japan to the temples.

      Thanks very much in advance!

      Hello there. I will be arriving in Kyoto from Osaka this May. I plan to spend my first day in Kyoto before heading to Takayama the next day. I would like to see Kinkakuji (North), Arashiyama (West) and the Fushimi Inari Shrine (South) ALL IN ONE DAY. I think it's possible if I start early and leave Kyoto by 7:30 am and go to Kinkakuji then Fushimi Inari Shrine. In the afternoon, I plan to go to Arashiyama and witness the lighting of the bamboo forest path (if there's any during the month of May). At night, I would also want to see (if I still have enough energy) Gion district and have dinner there. Should you have a better route or any suggestions, let me know, pleaseeeeee. Salamat! Thank you! Arigato!
