      Can taxi-drivers in Tokyo speak simple English to foreign tourists? Travel in Tokyo taxi

      Tokyo 12 hours ago

      Hi, i want to know whether taxi-drivers in Tokyo can speak simple English to foreign tourists. For example, if i say "i want to go back to Shimbashi Station" from Sanei Building in Shimbashi, will the Japanese taxi-driver understand the request?

      Or must i write down the name of the destination according to online Japanese transliteration before i leave for Tokyo?

      In Shimbashi, will the taxi stop to pick me up if i hail to a vacant taxi?

    • Stop to Mt Fuji on the way from Tokyo to Osaka

      Hakone Aug 22, 2016 at 4:33 AM

      Hi everyone,
      I am planning to spend most of my time in Japan (early September) in Tokyo and Osaka and then do day trips from the two cities.
      In the case of Mt. Fuji , I am only interested at seeing it and taking some photograph. Now considering that this might not happen due to the weather, I would not like to take a day only to find out that the nice Volcano is behind clouds.
      I would like then to try my luck only on my way from Tokyo to Osaka and stop somewhere where the Mountain could visible.
      What would be the best route I should take by train and where should I stop for a few hours ?
      Thanks ,
      Ross

    • Hakone Onsen & Accommodation

      Hakone Aug 7, 2016 at 12:09 PM

      Dear all,
      I will be visiting Japan in October for 14 days, and I would like to spend one night in Hakone (arriving early Tuesday, leaving Wednesday midday to Kioto)
      I read there is plenty to visit and see, however, my main goal is to experience a nice outdoor onsen where I can relax and enjoy beautiful views. Then I can run around and visit Gora and the Hakone Open Air Museum for example.
      Could you recommend a nice (affordable) outdoors onsen?
      Considering that I will arrive in Hakone Yumoto, should I look for accommodation in that area? If so, can you recommend?
      Is it easy to move around from this area?
      Sorry for all the questions, I have been seating behind the computers for few hours and am more confused than when started!
      Thank you very much in advance!
      Regards,
      Luna

      Would you recommend going there this time of the year? How is the weather? Is it beach weather? Rainy and/or windy?

    • Budget Traveling to Japan ?

      Japan Aug 19, 2016 at 10:41 PM

      It's my first time traveling alone. I think my budget is way too low. And it's unrealistic. Just want to get ideas.
      Sorry if it's a mess. I never traveled alone and I lack so much knowledge. Even the basics.
      I can speak English and Japanese pretty well so I don't think I'd have any communication problem.
      Might not understand some words quite often though.

      770.9 U.S Dollar / 77239.865 Japanese Yen

      is the amount I'm gonna spend. I searched on google for exchange rate.
      Exchange rate could be different by dates and locations of bank etc though.

      I'm thinking of booking up by peach airlines for cheapest ticket.
      But seems like the price for the ticket goes 2 to 4 times higher than it is by date.
      For example . 4th will be only 66.33 u.s dollars. while 6th will be 198.22 u.s dollars.

      I was thinking of if I could go to Japan, Tokyo at August 28th and come back at September 2nd.

      August 28th , I'd stay at tokyo just roaming. Go to karaoke and net cafe to experience, and check the city.
      August 29th , I want to go to the Japan's best beach. Was thinking if I could sleep at a little better place
      this day since it's my birthday and it's my main purpose of visiting besides that I can also get to visit Japan.

      August 30th, I want to go to the best water park. Water slides , aritificial water waves, and stuff like great wolf lodge.

      August 31st. Would just go to Tokyo Akihabara for sight seeing for anime stuff, eating dessert at shops. I know they
      have nice desserts.

      September 1st Check out Shinjuku or other nice places. I don't think I can but visiting osaka while I visit Japan would be good too.

      September 2nd. Pack up and go back home.

      I'd prefer to ride the plane at night and arrive at night since I don't wake up early and don't like that feeling when
      I get on the plane at morning and arrive at another country and feel like, "wait I'm already here and it doesn't have
      that traveling feeling." It's only 30 minutes or 1 hour to Japan from my country.

      I love getting on a big cruise ship (not those luxury expensive ones with shops,pools,movie theater,like freedom of the seas but huge ship with less luxury. like 1 room for 8 people to sleep on floor.
      I did some research and those were actually more expensive and complicated.

      The hotels though..
      I searched and found out that hotels insanely expensive. I thought 100$ is probably enough for most hotel
      that are huge but I found hotels that cost 600$ per night, that sounds like dubai's best hotel.
      I know it looks cool but 600 $ for just one night stay there ? I'd rather spend on actually having fun.

      Then I found some places at 100$ that looks not worthy enough for it's cost.
      50$ hotels looked like the best. It was not too bad. There was a bedroom (some are really small to even walk around.), bathroom (that looked like a normal house bathroom). The view outside was terrible when I searched
      on youtube. Smile hotel okinawa I think. I'm not even sure if that place was near the beach of okinawa.

      I think it all differs by the place. Even cheap hostels are so much luxury than these cheap hotels.
      Maybe okinawa area is all expensive than Tokyo with a worse facility.
      I remember sleeping in Tokyo hostel with 2 beds that have another bed on top so 4 single beds. (Sorry I don't know what these are called.) and the place was so beautiful. The view and the window was like the hotel.

      I'm thinking of sleeping at the cheapest since my budget is too low.
      Net cafe (probably the cheapest, some call it manga cafe instead of internet cafe but I think Japanese call it neto cafe) Can I go out whenever I want to after buying the 7 hour sleep room ?
      16$ a night ?

      Capsule hotels clean and nice. The only difference from cheap hotels would be you are sleeping in a small capsule.
      I wonder if I can get outside after checking in if I need to or want to go out when I want to when feeling like it.
      Could feel like I want some fresh air. 20$ a night ?

      Hostels , there are good ones like the one I've visited before but some are bad.
      Ryokan they say Tokyo don't have good Ryokan so probably I'll pass.

      Love hotel, could be just a beautiful luxury place to stay with cheap price is what I think. 50$?

      Then there is tax that I don't how to count.
      Mobile renting ? Those are cheaper than making my own phone work by changing chips ?
      It's not like I really need to use a phone though.
      Visa and master card will be enough to buy everything ? I never use cash in my life.
      Only need passport since I don't need visa ?

      Hello, We will visit Nagasaki by ship, and was wondering if the cruise ship terminal is very far from the city centre of Nagasaki.
      Are there interesting things to see by walking around near the port, or would a "city sights" type tour organised by the ship be recommended?
      Also, if there are several tours to choose from, what would be the top 2 sights we should see on a visit to Nagasaki?

    • parking mechanism in parking lot near the port

      by genewk Online Now Jan 12, 2008 at 11:27 AM

      Hi, while I was walking back to the port where our cruise ship was docked, I noticed a small park near the harbour with a small parking lot. There was a metal leaf with a small box next to it (I believe it is a motor) in the middle of each parking slot. I saw a driver backup to the parking spot and the metal leaf would rise to stop the car from pulling away. I am not sure when did the leaf risen. I think the driver had to go to the stand next to the entrance to punch in his or her parking slot number and pay a fee before the leaf came down.

      I am not really sure how this work, but it fascinates me.

      Does anybody can tell me how this mechanism works??

      Obviously will be visiting the Peace Park/memorial.
      Is there somewhere close to the port where I can get a one day tram pass?
