Long Layover in Narita, Can I go into Tokyo?  (9 Answers)

Hello, My husband and I will have a long layover in Narita on February 9th- arrive 8:25am depart 5:05pm. We were hoping to get into Tokyo for a couple hours and are wondering if this is possible and what would be the best way to do this? Are there any tour companies that could meet us at the airport and take us directly into Tokyo and back to the airport so we don't get lost? OR would it make more sense to stay in Narita and is there anything worth seeing there? Thanks! Nicole

11 visiting days How much time in Tokyo and Kyoto?  (9 Answers)

Hi, this will be my first trip to Japan. I would like to stay primarily in Tokyo, I think, in a hostel, but want to see Kyoto. I want to see old architecture and gardens, as well as museums, etc. I also want to see Modern Tokyo too, but am not sure how much time I should spend in each city, as I am limited on time.

Also, any suggested day trips? I like to visit large cities, but then contrast them with a day trip to a smaller more traditional place.

Thanks.

Itinerary & general cost of living  (15 Answers)

Thinking of doing a stop over in Japan Dec/Jan 207/2018 - going via Japan to New Zealand with NZ airlines - on the bucket list for 2 wrinklies!!

Want to see Narito/Hanenko/Kyoto and was thinking of remaining in Tokyo and doing day excursions even though they're long and expensive - Not into hiking/walking cable cars/ropeways Haven't got the confidence to explore on our own given the language probs - just want to see and experience some of the culture - but definitely no reptiles/snakes as I've got a big phobia - don't mind doing a reasonable amount of walking. Looking at Viator & City Discovery Tours ? - used Viator before

We've also heard horror stories about the cost of living - so we thought that by booking hotels a year out on a free [cancellation basis we'd do a reasonable price - will only stay in hotels with ensuite, but what about food? Anything food that is simple and cheap would be acceptable - quite happy to eat in McDs for a few days to keep prices down

All suggestions much appreciated - know it's a long way off but there is so much planning to do which I will find loads of fun - hoping to slot in Singapore & Hong Kong - kids watch your inheritance disappear!!

Asakusabashi Subway Station Accessibility  (8 Answers)

Hi,

I'm looking at staying near Asakusabashi Station. Will be traveling from Haneda Airport and back.
I know that I can catch the Keikyu Airport Express from Haneda via Sengakuji to Asakusabashi Subway Station. I also know that there is an elevator at exit A1. However, I can't find the layout map for the Asakusabashi Subway Station. We will be lugging quite large luggage and won't choose this location if we need to lug them up any stairs within the station.
Would anyone have a link to the layout map, please?

Tq! Mel

Looking for one special inverted house, which I found in the middle of Tokyo  (7 Answers)

Hello, my name is Andreas.
And I reall hope, somebody could help me a little bit with my question.

For about 14 years it was the last time I visited Tokyo.
But then, one day, while I was strolling through this city, I actually found a wonderful building, which was inverted, about 10 meters high und wide with a spiky roof.
As far as I can remember, this house was laying on one side of his roof and was maybe pink.
But in this second point, I am not really sure anymore.

I donĀ“t have any clue, where I found this house in Tokyo, so I really hope. anybody could give me a little hint^.^

Thank you very much in advance.

Stop to Mt Fuji on the way from Tokyo to Osaka  (3 Answers)

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.

What would be the best route I should take by train and where should I stop for a few hours ?

Thanks ,

Ross
