      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.

      is toyama prefecture worth a visit in December considering that the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route & the Kurobe Gorge Raiway Ride are closed during winter?

      Concept Hotel Waq vs Route Inn Toyam

      Toyama Nov 1, 2012 at 8:22 PM

      Has anyone stayed at both the Concept Hotel Waq (Wakyu) AND Route Inn Toyama? I want to stay one night before an early departure for the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route (8-9am). In general, Wakyu definitely looks better but it also costs Y1500-2000 more. Anyway, we won't be staying in much. But what I am interested in is the breakfast. I like Japanese style breakfast but it will be even better if there are also Western selection. The pics show nice presentation at Wakyu but I don't know if they have lesser choices than Route Inn or not... It looks that way from the photos. So if anyone can give me some input?

      Thanks!

      Hi Guys,
      I want to find out more abour the firefly squid (Hotaruika) at Namerikawa (Toyama Prefecture) but it is very hard to find details. I really hope someone would be able to assist and provide these info :
      1. Is the Hotaruika Museum worth a visit?
      2. If I go during season (2nd half of April) would I be seeing real life squid at the museum? What else is shown there?
      3. The Hotaruika Sightseeing Boat Tour - Is it worth the 3am trip?
      4. How much is the tour per person?
      5. What time will we be sent back to the port?
      6. What are the options to access the Namerikawa Fishing Port at 3am from Toyama?
      7 . Reservations for the boat ride go on sale in March and sell out quickly. How to make reservation?

      I really want to find out more so I know whether to add 1 more night to Toyama stay next spring.

      Thanks!

      Tonami Tulip Fair (Toyama Prefecture)

      Toyama Sep 16, 2011 at 7:23 PM

      Hi Guys,

      Has anyone visited this Tulip Fair? Is it worth a visit if I happen to be in Toyama? I have been to Kuekenhof (Holland) before but not my friends. Also, maybe being in Japan, the garden design may be different. The Japanese are so artistic!

      I really want to find out more so I know whether to add 1 more day to my Toyama stay next spring.

      Thanks!

      Japan > Vladivostok Ferry Options for THIS WEEK??

      Fushiki May 3, 2009 at 5:06 AM

      Looking for a way from Japan to Russia by boat this week. I'm aware of www.bisintour.com and have attempted to contact them, but it appears their ship will be under repair for at least another week. So - considering just going to the port of Fushiki/Takaoka/Toyama and trying to negotiate a ride directly with a boat if there's one headed to Russia. I speak Russian - though not Japanese. Anyone know if such a thing is feasible? Thanks!

      Fushiki Jun 11, 2005 at 1:42 PM

      Hallo! I will arrive at Fushiki in july by ship from Russia and I will have to go by train to Okazaki near Nagoya.
      Can I walk from the ship to railway station?
      At the station is their ticket counter or only machines? Can I pay ticket with european visa card? Is their bancomat at the station or other possibility to change money?
      Can you perhaps indicate me a map of Fushiki in internet?

      Thank you!
