As a big traveler myself I want to see what people are looking for in a trip to Japan.

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.

I saw a sign yesterday at a FamiMa saying that it's now possible to withdraw yen using foreign bank cards. I didn't test it out because I don't need more cash for a few days but I thought people would like to know there is now another option in the areas that lack 7-11s.

We are trying to book accommodations for a ski trip to Niseko in January.

Finding super expensive option and wondering what anyones recommendations are for booking... Did we miss the boat? Seams like everything reasonable is all booked... or are we just too early?

Any guidance would be welcome.

Thanks!

Hi all

We leave for Japan in October. Our general intinerary is below and would really appreciate some feedback and suggestions about Ueda and how to maximise the final days of our trip.

Days 1-4: Tokyo (including day trip to Nikko)

Is Nikko a "must see"?

Days 5-6 Ueda (visit friends with some sightseeing, perhaps visit hot spring?)
Days 7-11: Kyoto & Nara
Days 12-14: Himeji and Miyajima (2 nights on Island)
Day 15: Hiroshima

We will then have roughly 3 days before traveling back to Tokyo…

Folks-

We are planning a 16 day trip to Japan in Oct- Nov with my dad, husband and 4 year old son. Current bookings are done for
Tokyo 4 Days
Kyoto 5 days

For the remaining 7 days, last 2 days will probably be in Tokyo as we take our flight back from Narita.

For the rest of the 5 days, need advice on the itinerary.. below are some of the options we are thinking of:
Takayama 3 days - coz the rest of our travel is all in cities and it sounds quaint and we'd love to see the mountains
Nagoya -…

Hi guys,

I've been trying to rent a car in Takayama for a day trip and encountered some difficulties.
Can you please help with finding the cheapest way to rent a car?
I've been trying to use TooCoo website, but when I choose Gifu [Takayama, Shirakawago] it only gives me rental options in Gifu's vicinity, no Takayama branches.
I found a car hire in Takayama via Hertz, but it's a bit expensive (8100 yen /day for the cheapest compact car).

Any thoughts/ideas?

Thanks!
Ron
