We will be in Kyoto from October 24 to Octoner 28th and would like to use the Hop-on -Hop - off bus. Do they run during the week as I couldn't find it on the net. Thanks
I am completely stuck, google is not providing the answers.
I am looking for suggestions on where to party, exciting, unusual, mad or just good.
Kyoto Monday 14th Nov
Osaka Tues-Wed 15-16th Nov.
We are a couple of guys mid 20's looking to have fun/do somethign memorable.
Not sure were we will be staying either.
Any ideas would be great.
I normally use Booking.com, but was wondering if there was a good Japanese site for hotel bookings. It must be in English as well.
I particularly want it for smaller towns which aren't covered by the bigger sites. I cycle tour so stay at a lot of place 'in between'.
I often turn up at hotels and find they are booked out. How do people know about them.
I want to take a night ferry to Beppu from Osaka. I will stay in the tourist class (no own cabin).
There is no emailaddress on the website of Sunflower.
Does anybody knows if it is possible to buy tickets on the day of departure on a sunday.
Are there lockers in the ferry terminal?
How is the food? Is there something to do on board?
All suggestions are welcome
My partner and I will be on the northern island of Hokkaido in the second half of October. We would like to do some kayaking for a day (preferably river not sea). Can anyone recommend anywhere where we might do a 1-day private session with an English speaking guide?
I have found HOA (Hokkaido Outdoor Activities) in Hidaka to be really nice and helpful - but they are stopping all their kayaking activities on 23 October. Our plans mean we could only fit in half a day on 23 October (ideally, we…
I was watching out for the USJ Countdown Party 2017 tickets since July 2016 but I made a mistake by just regularly checking out the ENG website and scanning the Japanese newsletter.
I just found out yesterday, well-hidden in the JP website (well hidden from non-Japanese speakers) that they have started pre-selling the tickets since September 10 I think. http://www.usj.co.jp/countdown2017/ticket/
I was able to buy the normal Countdown Party Passes through the links (QR code) but…
I am just starting to plan a trip to Japan next spring. I will be traveling with two other people, and we will probably have two weeks or maybe 16 days. We want to see Tokyo, Kyoto (with a day trip to Nara), and a third place that is a smaller town with an onsen. I'm looking for advice on two sets of questions: 1) How should we divide our time between Tokyo, Kyoto, and the third destination? Would 4 full days in Tokyo be too few? Would 5 full days be much better? How many days do we need…
I'll have 8 days to explore Japan. My concern is I still don't have an idea where can I get a data connection for the whole stay. Also, I prefer the data sim over the pocket wifi because of it's accessibility and I only have a debit card. Where can I buy an affordable data sim (with 2-3GB data allowance consumable for 8 days) if I'll be arriving at the Kansai International Airport probably at 9pm? Replies are deeply appreciated. Thank you very much.
I'll be staying 3 days in Osaka but I will only have 1 whole day to have a city tour since I will be arriving late on the 1st day (probably around 9pm) and would likely want to spare my last at Universal Studios Japan for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Yea, Potterhead alert) So I seek your smart inputs/suggestions/places to reconsider/replace regarding my Day 2: 1 whole day itinerary and what transpo would be efficient. My 3 day accomodation will be in 4 Chome Minato-ku…
I am leaving to Japan in a week! Although I already have an idea of the itinerary there are still some parts missing. So I want your opinion in everything. Fell free to elaborate!
NOTE: I don't want to waste money on bullet trains
So I am going to Japan from the beginning of October to mid-December, though until the** 27th of October (around 3 weeks) I will be volunteering/working in Nagoya** and have only 2 days off per week and I will also be work exchanging in Kyoto for around 3…
