Purchase the NEX train ticket in JP. 1500 yen only.




Ensure that this is not a weekend, if not super packed.

In Japan, no such thing as really unlimited 3G SIM. You might wanna look at my other thread for Unlimited MIFI rental or the So-Net thread in the same forum
ok thanks! will continue my research.

But I heard noboribetsu has the most number of onsens around, easier to get access and more choices right?

Normally they have lunch package together with the onsen one hor?
I usually don't go for lunch package with onsens. Normally it is not advisable to go soak into an onsen after eating a heavy meal. I am not sure about you but I would feel too full to enjoy the hot water.

And while we always talk about the onsen water quality, the most enjoyable thing about going to the onsen bath to me is not the water, but the design and atmosphere of the bath. There are usually a lot of onsen baths in many onsen towns but if you really want to enjoy the experience, you will need to be selective. After all, a hole in the ground and 4 walls is also an onsen bath. That's why I have been recommending the Daiichi Takimotokan for the onsen in Noboribetsu. There are sure many onsen baths in Noboribetsu, but if you want the definitive experience that many people associate with Noboribetsu, then you must go to Daiichi Takimotokan.
In Noboribetsu, there is one Ryokan
Takinoya
????? ???

One of the best i been to, I would say among the whole of Japan.

The room, onsen and meal. Top class

Get back to nature in Japan - Lonely Planet
JR pass cannot be used for Kintetsu line.
just buy normal tickets when u are taking Kintetsu line. u probably dun need another pass coz the fare to and from Akameguchi is relatively cheap and will not be worth getting the pass

When you are there. you can monitor the surrounding regions for snow. But Tokyo is so near Tohoku and Chubu where snow is aplenty there, so its not hard to go see snow at the surrounding regions.
