    • ATMs and Visa

      Japan Jun 24, 2016 at 6:54 AM

      I'll be traveling to Tokyo, Osaka and Kobe. How prevalent is ATM and Visa use in these areas? When I traveled to Europe I didn't use currency exchange. I payed through Visa at restaurants and major stores and took out cash for the day at an ATM/Bank for small shops and snacks. Is this feasible in Japan?

      Dear all,
      Me and my family are planning a trip to Japan from the 20th of August until the 11th of September. In the last week, 3th of September until the 9th of September we're planning to visit ISHÌGAKI (flying from FUKUOKA).
      Is it a good season to visit the Ishigaki? as in, is it a typhoon season from 3th of September until the 9th of September? Or big risks for typhoons?
      If you have other suggestions for beautiful beaches, snorkling and good food, please let me know! Thanks!!

      need help with location to stay

      Okinawa Jan 11, 2016 at 3:22 AM

      Hi, my wife, my daughter 4 year old and myself are planning for a 5 night trip to okinawa on the 2nd week of may. i want to know few things.
      1. is it a good season to visit the place? as in, is it a typhoon season from 9th-15th may 2016?
      2. which place we should stay in, we need to go to the beach everyday to swim (not necessary snorkel). we arent picky about hotels, though it is not a problem. should we stay in naha or one of the far away places up north. our flight is from tokyo to naha, so cant plan for another island. also preferred if the hotel is either near the monorail station or some stores/restaurants, since we dont prefer to eat in any hotel's limited restaurant choices.

      any recommendation highly appreciated.

      Day 1: We arrive at Naha Airport in the afternoon, rent cars and drive to North Okinawa and stay for the next couple of nights in a Hotel close to the Okinawa Aquarium

      Day 2: Visit the Okinawa Aquarium in the morning and spend the afternoon at Emerald Beach or Minnajima Island

      Day 3: Visit Ogimi Village, Okuma Beach and Hedo-misaki (if we have time)

      Day 4: Head south to Naha and along the way stop at Manza Beach and Moon Beach / Spend the Night in Naha

      Day 5: Do a day trip to Tokashiki Island / Spend the night in Naha

      Day 6: Spend the morning visiting the Peace Memorial Park and Tunnels and the rest of the afternoon in Naha.... at the end of the day we have a plane to Kansai Airport.

      Can anyone please give us an opinion on this itinerary? Any advice? I'm particularly worried about the weather and ocean temperature in this time of the year in Okinawa. We wan't to spend these spending time on the beach and water activities.
