      Later dinner at Otaru during Snow Light Path Festival

      Otaru Dec 20, 2016 at 6:38 PM

      During the Otaru Light Festival We will only get into Otaru around 6pm since we will be skiing Mt Teine in the day. Upon arrival we would like to see the festival at both the canal and old railway track areas. I know light-up is until 9pm. Is there any dinner place which stay open late? So we can have something to eat after the visiting the light-up sites? Near the canal or the Otaru Station would be ideal...
      Don't want to waste time eating before seeing the light-up..

      Tq, Mel

      Are Suica cards available for sale at Haneda Airport?

      Tokyo Dec 31, 2016 at 4:24 PM

      May i know whether Suica cards are available for sale at Haneda Airport? Which train operator sells these cards, Tokyo Monorail or Keikyu Line? I plan to fly non-stop to Haneda from Singapore on 20 September and from there travel to Odaiba or Shimbashi by train.

    • Using Nagahama as a base

      Nagahama Sep 19, 2012 at 12:13 AM

      My husband and I will be spending a week in Japan in October. We will spend the first night and day in Osaka before going to stay with my sister in Nagahama and then the last day in Osaka before flying home. I've planned what we will do in Osaka but I need a bit of help planning things to do from Nagahama.
      As first time visitors to Japan, we will find plenty to do in Nagahama. As well as the castle and lake, a simple visit to a supermarket will be interesting to us!
      We are buying JR passes (more for peace of mind than anything) and will make at least one day trip to Kyoto. Is there anywhere else you would recommend we visit as a day trip? Would a vist to Nara be a good idea?
      As I said, we are first time travellers and we will be on our own as my sister and her husband will be at work.
