    • 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

      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.

      How many days in Nara and Takayama?

      by JosefadeMerlo Online Now Oct 13, 2015 at 8:14 AM

      Hi. I have 3 days left on my trip to Japan and was thinking of Nara and Takayama. We are taking the train from Tokyo and after those 3 days we head to Hiroshima for 2 nights.

      My 2 questions are:

      1) How many nights in Nara or Takayama (we only have 3 altogether)
      2) are 2 nights enough for Hiroshima?

      Thank you for your feedback!

    • Events in May

      by amiya12 Online Now May 10, 2014 at 4:29 AM

      I am planning a trip to Nara next week sunday (19th).. I was informed there will be a few things going there at Kofukuji-temple.
      1) at around 4pm
      2) at night

      My question is, what are the events going on there? do we need to pay entrance fee to see it? At night, what time would it start? Would it be better to stay a night in nara?

      Thanks in advance.

      Transportation from Kyoto to Nara and distances once in Nara

      by nomad7890 Online Now Aug 19, 2009 at 6:43 AM

      I was looking in the keihan train page and saw that there is a train that goes from Kyoto to Nara, however, it seems you need to take a bus after the train drops you off.

      Is there any other transportation from Kyoto to Nara that does not involve a transfer?

      Once in Nara, is the area walkable - so would this make a good day trip from Kyoto?

    • shukubo?

      by dilaurorn Online Now Feb 17, 2008 at 12:05 PM

      I am looking for Shukubo within close distance to Kyoto or Nara that does not object to americans,we plan to learn whatever we can so as not to offend by our ignorance. We really want to experience the prayers & meditations as well as shojin ryori.
      Because of our itinerary;(we have one day available before we go to Nara -for one night- via Kyoto, and then back to Kyoto for a few nights before returning to Tokyo)
      Nara would be best but I cannot find mention of any temples offering shukubo either in Nara (or Uji, I don't know other areas between to search)
      In Kyoto I've found only names of a few places but no real information, reviews or contact details.
      I find copious amounts of information about Koyasan- However, we don't really have enough time to make it worthwile.

    • Camping in Nara

      by NamasteTraveler Online Now Aug 3, 2006 at 7:37 AM

      I am traveling with my partner to Nara next week, and our accommodations backed out on us at the last minute -- so, we thought it'd be nice to go camping. We have our own gear, and would like your info about the places to camp! We will also have JR Rail passes, so places we could access without extra travel costs are preferable.

      Thanks!

      Big BBQ in Nara

      by MoogieCha Online Now Apr 21, 2006 at 7:53 AM

      Hi,

      This is a shot in the dark, but has anyone heard of a huge barbecue that's held every once in awhile somewhere in the countryside of Nara-ken? Apparently it's a huge bash where you pay one lump sum and eat as much as you like. If anyone has any information on this or knows where I can find some information, please leave a reply here. Thanks!

    • Please I need some help if possible

      by QLR Online Now Sep 19, 2005 at 1:19 PM

      Hi I'm going to Nara for 5 days in October,
      and I have some question, which I hope some of you can help me with.

      a) I have heard that there is a temple where you can stay in the city of Kamo close to Nara. Can you get me a telephone number for this place?

      b) There should be a bus from Nara to Osaka airport. At what time does it depart from in the morning?

      c) Can you recomend a one day hike in the Nara area. Maybe where you both see nature and temples?

      And finaly I have heard that there in Japan should be some gigant mazes (see my question in the Kyoto forum). Do you know of one of these in the kyoto / Nara area?

      I know it is a lot of questions but I hope you can help me. Or maybe you have an email adress for the yourist information?

      Yours sincerely
