    • 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! 

      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.

      My mother is originally from the Sendai area (Shiogama) and the area was ravaged by the tsunami. She would like to visit her sister in the next year. I've heard that finding a place to stay is difficult/expensive because of the rebuilding. Staying with her sister is not a possibility. Any ideas of longterm apts or rentals?

    • Map of bus routes throughout Sendai

      by Fredbel6 Online Now Aug 16, 2013 at 2:04 PM

      Hello,

      I am trying to figure out the bus system in Sendai. There are a few places that have a website describing how you can get there from Sendai station, but it would be much easier for me if I would simply see all routes on a map of Sendai, to have som idea which routes are best to get from A to B (I can't read Japanese so that is probably why I can't find it)

      I plan on using busses for commuting so I can't always take the Loople,and it seems the subway won't be of much use to me.

      So does anyone know where I can find such a map?

      Many thanks!

    • Is it possible to rent a bicycle for a few weeks in Sendai, Japan?

      by Fredbel6 Online Now Jul 30, 2013 at 1:15 PM

      Hello everyone I am planning to spend a few weeks in Sendai, Miyagi-ken, in Japan, and I was wondering if it is possible to rent a bicycle, which would give me some more freedom to explore the city and its surroundings. Is it also true that you cannot just park your bicycle wherever you want, that you need to use designated parking lots for bicycles? (I am used to riding bicycles in cities, but I am a (continental) European so I'm used to driving on the right side.) All suggestions or ideas are welcome!

      Okay, so I know it's a broad question, but what is Sendai like to live in? I'm moving there for a year or more in July and don't have any insider information as such. Particularly just whether people enjoy it there? What's the general standard of living etc? Sorry for being so broad but i'm asking as a total Sendai novice!
