    • Stop to Mt Fuji on the way from Tokyo to Osaka

      Hakone Aug 22, 2016 at 4:33 AM

      Hi everyone,
      I am planning to spend most of my time in Japan (early September) in Tokyo and Osaka and then do day trips from the two cities.
      In the case of Mt. Fuji , I am only interested at seeing it and taking some photograph. Now considering that this might not happen due to the weather, I would not like to take a day only to find out that the nice Volcano is behind clouds.
      I would like then to try my luck only on my way from Tokyo to Osaka and stop somewhere where the Mountain could visible.
      What would be the best route I should take by train and where should I stop for a few hours ?
      Thanks ,
      Ross

    • Hakone Onsen & Accommodation

      Hakone Aug 7, 2016 at 12:09 PM

      Dear all,
      I will be visiting Japan in October for 14 days, and I would like to spend one night in Hakone (arriving early Tuesday, leaving Wednesday midday to Kioto)
      I read there is plenty to visit and see, however, my main goal is to experience a nice outdoor onsen where I can relax and enjoy beautiful views. Then I can run around and visit Gora and the Hakone Open Air Museum for example.
      Could you recommend a nice (affordable) outdoors onsen?
      Considering that I will arrive in Hakone Yumoto, should I look for accommodation in that area? If so, can you recommend?
      Is it easy to move around from this area?
      Sorry for all the questions, I have been seating behind the computers for few hours and am more confused than when started!
      Thank you very much in advance!
      Regards,
      Luna

    • Looking for one special inverted house, which I found in the middle of Tokyo

      Tokyo 6 hours ago

      Hello, my name is Andreas.
      And I reall hope, somebody could help me a little bit with my question.

      For about 14 years it was the last time I visited Tokyo.
      But then, one day, while I was strolling through this city, I actually found a wonderful building, which was inverted, about 10 meters high und wide with a spiky roof.
      As far as I can remember, this house was laying on one side of his roof and was maybe pink.
      But in this second point, I am not really sure anymore.

      I don´t have any clue, where I found this house in Tokyo, so I really hope. anybody could give me a little hint^.^

      Thank you very much in advance.

    • Advice Needed on Itinerary: Tokyo > Nagoya > Osaka

      Japan Aug 24, 2016 at 10:53 PM

      Hi Everyone!

      I need help. We'll be travelling to Japan during winter in Jan 2017 with our 2 kids aged 10 and 6.
      We are flying into Narita and out of Kansai for a total 10 days with bases in Tokyo and Osaka for the most parts.

      Need advice on our draft itinerary. I do not know if I’m planning it correctly. Not too sure if it’ll be too much with the kids and luggage (2 check-ins and 2 hand carry).

      Here is the draft itinerary:-

      D1 - Arrive Narita late afternoon > check-in hotel (not sure where to stay yet) > leisure in Tokyo city
      D2 - Chiba > Disneyland
      D3 - Tokyo City > Shibuya/Shinjuku, Harajuku, Tokyo Tower & Yokohama (by evening) > Ramen Museum > Art Rink at Red Brick Warehouse
      D4 - Tokyo > Hakone or Kawaguchiko > Tokyo
      D5 - Tokyo > Nagoya > Kuwana for Nabana no Sato (Winter Illumination) > stay one night
      D6 - Nagoya > Osaka > check-in hotel > walk around Kuromon market, Minami (Namba) - Dotonbori canal
      D7 - Osaka > USJ > Osaka Castle – night for Winter Illumination
      D8 - Kyoto > Arashiyama area, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kiyomizudera Temple, Kinkakuji, Otagi Nenbutsu Ji Temple, Gion
      D9 - Osaka > Hiroshima > Miyajima >Hiroshima > Osaka
      Miyajima : Itsukushima Shrine - floating Torii Gate
      Hiroshima : Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku Dome), Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum
      D10 - Osaka > walk around hotel area before heading to airport

      Questions:-
      1.What would be the most economical way to travel around each city? Advisable to purchase any Passes i.e.7 or 14 Days Rail Passes?
      2.Does it make more sense to travel to Osaka from Kawaguchiko or Tokyo
      3.Which train line should i take from Osaka to Kyoto?

      This will be our first time so any advice that you have would be appreciated
      Thank you

    • Budget Traveling to Japan ?

      Japan Aug 19, 2016 at 10:41 PM

      It's my first time traveling alone. I think my budget is way too low. And it's unrealistic. Just want to get ideas.
      Sorry if it's a mess. I never traveled alone and I lack so much knowledge. Even the basics.
      I can speak English and Japanese pretty well so I don't think I'd have any communication problem.
      Might not understand some words quite often though.

      770.9 U.S Dollar / 77239.865 Japanese Yen

      is the amount I'm gonna spend. I searched on google for exchange rate.
      Exchange rate could be different by dates and locations of bank etc though.

      I'm thinking of booking up by peach airlines for cheapest ticket.
      But seems like the price for the ticket goes 2 to 4 times higher than it is by date.
      For example . 4th will be only 66.33 u.s dollars. while 6th will be 198.22 u.s dollars.

      I was thinking of if I could go to Japan, Tokyo at August 28th and come back at September 2nd.

      August 28th , I'd stay at tokyo just roaming. Go to karaoke and net cafe to experience, and check the city.
      August 29th , I want to go to the Japan's best beach. Was thinking if I could sleep at a little better place
      this day since it's my birthday and it's my main purpose of visiting besides that I can also get to visit Japan.

      August 30th, I want to go to the best water park. Water slides , aritificial water waves, and stuff like great wolf lodge.

      August 31st. Would just go to Tokyo Akihabara for sight seeing for anime stuff, eating dessert at shops. I know they
      have nice desserts.

      September 1st Check out Shinjuku or other nice places. I don't think I can but visiting osaka while I visit Japan would be good too.

      September 2nd. Pack up and go back home.

      I'd prefer to ride the plane at night and arrive at night since I don't wake up early and don't like that feeling when
      I get on the plane at morning and arrive at another country and feel like, "wait I'm already here and it doesn't have
      that traveling feeling." It's only 30 minutes or 1 hour to Japan from my country.

      I love getting on a big cruise ship (not those luxury expensive ones with shops,pools,movie theater,like freedom of the seas but huge ship with less luxury. like 1 room for 8 people to sleep on floor.
      I did some research and those were actually more expensive and complicated.

      The hotels though..
      I searched and found out that hotels insanely expensive. I thought 100$ is probably enough for most hotel
      that are huge but I found hotels that cost 600$ per night, that sounds like dubai's best hotel.
      I know it looks cool but 600 $ for just one night stay there ? I'd rather spend on actually having fun.

      Then I found some places at 100$ that looks not worthy enough for it's cost.
      50$ hotels looked like the best. It was not too bad. There was a bedroom (some are really small to even walk around.), bathroom (that looked like a normal house bathroom). The view outside was terrible when I searched
      on youtube. Smile hotel okinawa I think. I'm not even sure if that place was near the beach of okinawa.

      I think it all differs by the place. Even cheap hostels are so much luxury than these cheap hotels.
      Maybe okinawa area is all expensive than Tokyo with a worse facility.
      I remember sleeping in Tokyo hostel with 2 beds that have another bed on top so 4 single beds. (Sorry I don't know what these are called.) and the place was so beautiful. The view and the window was like the hotel.

      I'm thinking of sleeping at the cheapest since my budget is too low.
      Net cafe (probably the cheapest, some call it manga cafe instead of internet cafe but I think Japanese call it neto cafe) Can I go out whenever I want to after buying the 7 hour sleep room ?
      16$ a night ?

      Capsule hotels clean and nice. The only difference from cheap hotels would be you are sleeping in a small capsule.
      I wonder if I can get outside after checking in if I need to or want to go out when I want to when feeling like it.
      Could feel like I want some fresh air. 20$ a night ?

      Hostels , there are good ones like the one I've visited before but some are bad.
      Ryokan they say Tokyo don't have good Ryokan so probably I'll pass.

      Love hotel, could be just a beautiful luxury place to stay with cheap price is what I think. 50$?

      Then there is tax that I don't how to count.
      Mobile renting ? Those are cheaper than making my own phone work by changing chips ?
      It's not like I really need to use a phone though.
      Visa and master card will be enough to buy everything ? I never use cash in my life.
      Only need passport since I don't need visa ?

My plan is to leave Tokyo in the morning on the train, explore ONE of those sites, then take the train to Utsunomiya by 5pm. So, looking at the train schedules, it seems easy enough to get to each station, but how is the scenic areas from each one? Also, on November 13, will there still be enough autumn color to enjoy at each of these places? I plan to photograph some waterfalls and pathways, so which is better? Thanks!

      Tobu World/ monkey mountains bus service

      Nikko May 12, 2010 at 3:10 AM

      Hi

      The Nikko part of our Japan trip is coming together,

      but we were looking at doing Tobu World and the kinugawa hot springs ropeway/monkey mountains.
      The only information that we can find is that monkey mountain is about a 30 minute walk from kinugawa Onsen Station. If we do Tobu World first this will make it a 45 minute walk, which could be painful with a 3 year old.
      We cannot find any bus information to get between the two places.

      Any information will be greatly appreciated.

      Nikko Oct 30, 2009 at 1:42 AM

      Hi!

      appreciate if someone could provide info on travelling between Nikko and Nagano (the Monkey hot springs)... I've looked thru the JR East shinkansen and rail maps, can't find any good/convenient way to get from Nikko to Nagano... any direct trains/buses between these 2 places?

      thanks! :)

    • Question about the Tobu passes

      Nikko Oct 2, 2009 at 11:21 AM

      I'm arriving in Nikko for 4 days in late October from Utsunomiya, not Tokyo. Can I get an All-Nikko pass to use the unlimited bus rides and just the one-way train back to Tokyo, or would Tobu invalidate my pass if I don't start out from their Asakusa station?

      If I can do this, can I obtain all the necessary pass validations either over the internet or IN Nikko, since I will NOT be going to Tokyo before Nikko. (Am going straight from Narita by bus to Utsunomiya.)

    • Getting there and moving around.

      Nikko Aug 19, 2009 at 1:48 PM

      Is it possible to get to Nikko from Narita Airport without going through Tokyo?
      Is there, perhaps, a direct bus?

      If I rent a car in Narita, how long it will take me to reach Nikko?

      Does it make sense to rent a car for a day or two in Nikko instead of going by buses to onsens and places to see? Will I have to pay for parking at each place? How much?

      How much does bus cost? Is there such thing as an unlimited day bus pass?

      Where to buy a real Japanese Katana?

      Utsunomiya Mar 17, 2009 at 12:12 PM

      I will be visiting Utsunomiya again in the fall and I have always wanted to get a real Japanese Katana, but with so many cute shops to explore, I have not found one yet that sells them and/or i run out of time to look. Also how much can I expect to send - I imagine it depends on the katana and do any of the place offer shipping, as in shipping it back home to the States?

    • PRIVATE hot spring bath in nikko?

      Nikko Oct 18, 2008 at 6:02 PM

      Does anyone know any place in Nikko where they have a PRIVATE hot spring bath in the room? Somewhere with a nice view. Can be good for honeymooners too? And if you have any other recommendations for a private hot spring bath not in Nikko, that is also fine with me. Thank you in advance!

    • One More Time Pension

      Nikko Jun 23, 2007 at 6:43 PM

      Hi,

      Can someone who had been One More Time Pension - Nikko tell me how far it is from JR station and the temples?
      Can we take a bus from JR station to this pension or do we have to take taxi? If so, any idea about the cost?
      Also, how can we access to the temple area from this pension?
      By viewing their web-site, we like their rooms but need to know how we can access to and from JR station and the temple area.
      Thank you so much for your advise.
