Hi all,

Travelling to Japan this summer and happen to be in Aomori for the Nebuta Matsuri festival on the 7th of august. As I am trying to find accommodation, way too late I know, I wonder what is reasonable in travel distance, wouldn't mind an hour by train. However would like to catch some of the festival evening celebrations.

Has anyone had experience with last minute accommodation on such short notice? Or some advice on how to arrange an overnight stay?

Help is much appreciated, kind…

We (2 adults +4 year old) are planning a 24 day trip in Japan.
we are looking for a slow vacation (to absorb the local vibe of places), enjoying culture, temples, gardens, architecture and nature. because we are traveling with a kid we don't want to move our hotel too much or take long transnational detours (for example - taking a 3 hour bus for a 2 day trip). we will be flying in and out of Tokyo for the airline tickets are affordable that way for us)

  1. I'm attaching our "tentative"…

Hi friends
Seasoned mid-budget traveler here. Leaving for a vacation in Japan Oct 8 and will be in-country a full 21 days. I am considering 4 days each Tokyo and Kyoto. The rest of the time I want to explore other parts of the country. I am interested in maybe three 4-day bases from which to explore out from and have them be semi-rural so I can experience a slower more traditional cultural experience. I have the Lonely Planet Guide and it is great but everything it describes sounds awesome…

Hello fellow travelers!

We are planning a 2 week honeymoon (15 days) landing in Toyko and keen to visit Kyoto and Osaka and If timing works out also Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Besides the city sights I woul love to hear your tips of more quiet and authentic places we could stay a night or 2 along the way to these cites. Open to Ryokans, places in the mountains or lakes or by the water. Places that have that romantic charm. We leave towards end of Sept. Many thanks! Justin

Hi

My partner and I will land in Toyko on Monday at 5:30. My question is, is it better to bring Sterling, Euro or US dollar to change into Yen?

Also is there a bullet train from Tokyo to Hiroshima?

Thanks

I was thinking about traveling around Tohoku this summer - maybe visiting Sendai, Aomori, Niigata and Yamagata, starting from Tokyo where I live. But individual train fares add up so I was wondering if anyone knows about any discount arrangements? I see there's something called "Seishun 18" but I'm not sure I want to take semi-local trains all the time, although if it only adds a few hours altogether I might consider it.

Hi,

I went to Zamami for a few days about 10 years ago and I loved it. I'm considering going back in July for a week or two to relax (I'd like to swim, snorkel, bicycle, maybe dive...) . Do you think I should plan ahead? last time, I didn't book anything and there were many affordable places to stay (surprising for such a beautiful place in a developed country!). Have things changed much since then? Do you know other similar places in Japan with the same vibe?

Hi all, my partner and I are staying in Tokyo for 8 days then Kyoto for 6 at the end of August/ start of September.

We were wondering if there are any amazing day trips we should do out of the cities (mainly Tokyo as we have more time). We have thought about Fuji but reviews seems very mixed for views/cost for a whole day trip.

Please let me know of any great days out! Love culture/ nature in particular

Thanks,
Matt
