      My flight will get there to Yangon at 17:15 Dec 19th and leave Yangon at 22:10 Dec 24 to Tokyo and arriving early in the morning of 25th.

      So it's pretty short stay, i'm not planning to stay Yangon much,but love to visit Bagan for sure. However, I want to visit Inle lake as well.

      My concern on this trip is..
      1)I would love to relax and see historical cites as well as natures.

      2)My current plan as below:

      12/19--->17:15 arrive to Yangon. stay one night in Yangon

      12/20--->leave for Bagan by airplane.

      12/21--->stay Bagan

      12/22--->leave for Inle lake by air plane

      12/23--->stay in Inle lake

      12/24--->stay in Inle lake and leave Inle lake afternoon for Yangon to catch my flight to Tokyo of 22:10.

      12/25--->arrive tokyo early in the morning

      3)my plan above is tight for the last day?

      4)which do you recommend to stay longer, Bagan or Inle lake?
      Or if you have any advice on my travel plan above, pls let me know.

      5)Im travelling myself,but at the same time I would love to make friends during my travel.
      Hotel can have arrangements for tourist?

      6)Is it better to stay at hotel?(I want my own room,bathroom,but in the meantime, would love to make friends as well:))

      Hello!
      I needed some tips for my Virgin Tokyo trip end of the month.
      1) should I get a nex , suica or pormo card for my travels in Tokyo or it would be better savings for me to get the JR pass since il be using it for my 3days trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen ?
      2) will I be able to use the JR pass for the public transportation in Tokyo such as the metro n buses?
      3) or would it best for me to just purchase a single return trip to Osaka on the Shinkansen?
      4) is it advisable to take an airport bus or express to my hotel (CERELEUN TOKYU HOTEL)?
      5)any tour websites that I can buy Disney sea/land at a much affordable rate?

      I'm arriving in Tokyo on the 26th of October. Planning to have lunch in Asakusa then dinner at Kagurazaka on the 28th. In between I would like to visit either Koishikawa Korakuen or Rikugien since I love Japanese Gardens (Streams, stones, steps, bridges, maples and Sakura.. Unfortunately I know I'm too early for Koyo this time). I have yet to visit either of these gardens.

      Which one would you recommend? I read that There are some construction works at Koishikawa Korakuen..

      Tokyo 1 1/2 day layover

      by Dabs Online Now Oct 5, 2015 at 7:04 AM

      We're considering going to Singapore in late January and there are no direct flights so one of the places I can change planes is Tokyo and since we've never been, I thought we might do a short layover. It looks like I can get a flight that arrives mid to late day on Friday, we could spend all day Saturday and fly to Singapore the next day midday. I will guess that we will be quite tired from the 13 hour flight so probably looking for the following:

      hotel for 2 nights for 2 people that won't make my pocketbook cry too loudly, I am fine with anything clean that has a bed and a private shower in a safe neighborhood (no hostels or shared facilities), easy access to transit to the airport a plus

      dinner on Friday night, then off to sleep

      what to see on Saturday to get a feel for the city, I know it's too short of a visit to see everything but we're interested in history and enjoy visiting markets

      lunch and dinner on Saturday

      I've had a look at the average weather and it says 38/50F low/high, that will be warm for us at that time of year since we live in Chicago :-)

      Thanks for any help!

    • Haneda; Tokyo; Hakone; Miyajima

      by yang11 Online Now Sep 7, 2015 at 2:43 AM

      Hi all,

      I'll be going Tokyo, and thinking of going Hakone to view Mt Fuji & Hiroshima (Miyajima). I've been to Kyoto & Osaka last year.

      I'm stuck on planning on the transport arrangements..(which is more difficult as I thought compared to Kansai Region), especially Haneda airport to Tokyo town on our arrival. =(

      firstly, we will be there for 9D8N, I'm planning to get 7 days JR Pass. how can i get additional 1-2 days JR pass for the additional day usage?

      I'm planning to use the JR pass on 3rd day onwards till my return so that we can use the JR Pass on N'EX train as we will be departing from Narita Airport.

      If i can't get additional 1-2 days JR pass, what will be the best transport / route from haneda to Shinjuku area? If I purchase ad-hoc monorail ticket from Haneda airport to Shinjuku? We will be renting apartment near shinjuku area. is there any metro / subway we can hop on from Hamamatsucho or Shinagawa station after taking monorail from Haneda airport?

      Secondly, in order to see mt. Fuji, understand Hakone will be one of the best options. what will be the best way to get there? Should we stay overnight or it can be day trip?

      lastly, visiting Miyajima will be in my plan too.. I know we can make use of JR Pass on shinkansen and even JR ferry.. I'd like to seek advise on accommodation. Is it worth spending a night stay at Hiroshima / Miyajima?

      Thank you

      Meiji Shrine > Takeshita Dori > Shibuya Crossing & Hachiko Statue > Shinjuku

      day2:
      Tsukiji Fish Market > Hamarikyu Gardens > Akihabara / Ginza

      day4:
      ????

      day5:
      flying back home

      1)what do you think about the itinerary? should we skip something or add more?
      2)should we use single tickets, day pass or Suica card? the first day we will use JR line as our JR pass will still be valid, but what about the 3 days after?
      3)any suggestions for 4th day? no long day trips as we will do a lot of them the previous days around Kyoto

      Direction within Tokyo Station

      by Melanie_Putra Online Now Jun 9, 2015 at 2:21 AM

      Hi everyone!

      I really need help regarding Tokyo Station.

      I will arrive into Tokyo Station at track 3 (Keihin-Tohoku Line) or track 4 (Yamanote Line) from Hamamatsucho. I will give myself an hour at Tokyo Station before boarding the Joetsu Shinkansen for Jomo-Kogen, departing from platform 22.
      In this one hour I would like to go buy ekiben from Ekiben-ya Matsuri which I read is at Tokyo Station City's Central Street. I also read that it is inside the paid section of the station.

      Would anyone be kind enough to give me a clear direction, please? Do I need to go to another level? I am a bit confuse about the 'paid section'.. Does it mean I don't exit from the Yamanote/Keihin-Tohoku area but just head towards the Shinkansen gate? I see in the map the shop is in between the tracks 3/4 and 22. But I am not sure if I need to go to a different floor..
