      Centrair Nagoya to Osaka

      Japan Sep 2, 2016 at 8:33 PM

      Hi all! I will be traveling to Japan in February 2017 with family of 5 (no young kids, all adults). Osaka is our final destination but we will be flying in to Centrair Nagoya and flight will arrive past 8pm. I am thinking we will go straight to Osaka from the airport and the cheapest option seems to be the bus. The time spent on travel is not a concern since it's already late in the evening so there's no hurry to reach Osaka. I just want to ask those who have done this by bus. Is it a good option?

      Also, do we need to travel to the city center before we can take the bus as I have read on the internet? Is there a bus at the airport that goes staright to Osaka?

    • Japan Winter Trip Itinerary 2016 Help

      Japan Yesterday

      Hi All!

      I would like to visit japan on mid february 2017 for 10 days with my BF.
      And i want to visit Tokyo, Fuji Q, Shirakawa-go, Zao onsen in yamagata for snow boarding, and will fly back to my hometown from tokyo.
      I still confused to arrange the itinerary. But I will buy JPrail pass for 7 days, so to go to that place i will use shinkansen.

      Day 1: arrived at haneda in the morning, tokyo sightseeing
      Day 2: go to fuji Q and heading back to tokyo
      Day 3: Tokyo disney sea
      Day 4: Shirakawago, I dont think its possible to do return trip from tokyo to shirakawago (or it is possible?)
      Day 5: Heading to Tokyo
      Day 6: Yamagata - Zao, return to tokyo
      Day 7: Kyoto
      Day 8: Kyoto, return to tokyo
      Day 9: Tokyo
      Day 10: Going back home

      I think my itinerary is messed up, isnt it?
      Any suggestion for this winter trip?

      Seven days by rail in Japan

      Japan Sep 26, 2016 at 12:39 PM

      My wife and I are spending seven days in Japan, the last week in October. We arrive at Tokyo Haneda early morning on 25 October and fly out of Fukuoka (to Seoul) on 1 or 2 November. In between we'd like to travel with a rail pass and visit Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara and Hiroshima, but we'd also like to see some unspoilt and perhaps less visited parts of Japan's countryside, assuming we would have time. Any suggested itineraries?
      We have both been to Tokyo before, separately and briefly, but have not seen anything of the rest of the country.

    • Japan Itinerary Recs - 2 weeks- April 2017

      Japan Sep 15, 2016 at 3:41 AM

      I am traveling to Japan for the first time with one friend in the first 2 weeks of April next year for cherry blossom season (we are both in our 30s FYI)

      We are flying in/out of Tokyo and have 14 days in Japan. We want to do 4-5 days in Tokyo and 3-4 in Kyoto (with da trips) but open to other suggestions

      Would love some ideas/suggestions for the following to help plan our trip

      1) Tokyo recommendations (incl day trips outside of town)- not sure if too cold then to see Mt Fuji in April?
      2) Kyoto recommendations (incl day trips outside of town)
      3) Kanazawa - worth seeing?
      4) Any ryokan suggestions for Tokyo/Kyoto ?
      5) Hot Springs in or near Tokyo/Kyoto ?
      6) Any other things we shouldn't miss?

      Asakusabashi Subway Station Accessibility

      Tokyo Sep 2, 2016 at 3:27 AM

      Hi,

      I'm looking at staying near Asakusabashi Station. Will be traveling from Haneda Airport and back.
      I know that I can catch the Keikyu Airport Express from Haneda via Sengakuji to Asakusabashi Subway Station. I also know that there is an elevator at exit A1. However, I can't find the layout map for the Asakusabashi Subway Station. We will be lugging quite large luggage and won't choose this location if we need to lug them up any stairs within the station.
      Would anyone have a link to the layout map, please?

      Tq! Mel

      Thanks!

      Typhoon Malakas versus Rain Jacket and Travel Alert

      Tokyo Sep 17, 2016 at 5:25 PM

      Hi, i want to know whether Tokyo has issued any Travel Alert to foreign tourists that are planning to arrive in Narita and Haneda in view of Typhoon Malakas approaching Osaka and Tokyo.

      May I know whether a rain jacket is advisable to be worn on Wednesday instead of buying a long stick umbrella in a Tokyo convenience store? Here in Singapore it costs around 150 SIngapore Dollars to buy a Marmot logo rain jacket. I will arrive in Narita on Wednesday 21 September morning before 12 pm.
