I am thinking about going to the 6-day-5-night itinerary hike from the Kumano reservation system (http://www.tb-kumano.jp/en/kumano-kodo/)during this late December/Early January. Below are my questions and concerns. I really want to get more opinions. I appreciate all your responses in advance! If anyone had been there, please share your experience! Thanks!

  1. Weather. Maybe around the beginning of January. I am worried that it might be too cold and slippery. How steep the road might be?

After a little airfare advice if I could! Planning a trip to Tokyo, not fussed on date really, thinking early-mid next year. main qualifier is I don't want too long of a stopover, have kids and partner, both likely to get bored and or cranky.

We are thinking Jetstar for cost reasons and the possibility of direct flights from MEL or at very least a reasonable stop over. They seem to be about the best bet, but happy to hear other suggestions!

A) anyone have any ideas when the next decent sale…

Hey gals and guys

I just wanted to share a quick report of my 1 month trip to Japan in June 2016.

We entered the country with a cheap Air Asia flight from Bangkok to Osaka / Kansai. The airline once again didn't dissapoint us and at any costs it pays off to take such a budget flight into Japan. Tiny tip for the entry: Don't show up too shabby at the immigration and have a confirmation of your return flight to be on the safe side. There was a backpacker guy with Moses beard in the same queue…

Hi! I am planning to do a backpacking trip to Japan for 10 days from Oct 27 - Nov 7 (since Oct 27 and Nov 7 are dedicated for flying in and out).I am flying in Haneda and flying out of Osaka. I am hoping to see much of Japan in that span, excluding the theme parks (USJ and Disney World). I would also like to go as many natural sites as possible. My budget would be 1500 SGD excluding the plane tickets. Would that be enough? Any suggestions/ tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I have been using my Visa Card at 7/11s for man years now..

This morning I wanted again to withdraw 100.000 Yen from my european bankaccount and was informed that withdrawals have been limited to 50.000
When I called them I was told they had done so for security reasons, which he was not able to explain any further, why the theft of 50.000 is acceptable and a theft of 100.000 is not, and double the fee of course has not to be paid by 7/11.

I have always only used 7/11, so I would like to know…

Hi,

I'm heading to Japan soon, and I have some random questions:

  1. I want to get an electric razor that works on the electricity in Japan; I figure the best way to do this is to buy one when I get to Japan. Where can I buy such a thing? It doesn't need to be anything fancy, it just needs to be able to get rid of my barbarian-esque beard. Do 7/11's or other such convenience stores sell electric razors? Or supermarkets? Any place you can think of in or around Shinjuku station?

  2. Do…
