I'm going to Japan this coming April and thinking of hitting Studio Ghibli Museum and USO... I can't seem the ticketing portal anywhere on their website... Any idea how can i pre-book those tickets??

I heard that it's very hot, its impossible to get any on the actual day..

Thanks !

I`m thinking of Nagano to Nozawa Ski Resort. Never been there but advisable to go there?
anywhere facing Sea of Japan will have high chance to see snow.

Snow country (Japan) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

kanto Area pass has this option pass for Gala Yuzawa
GALA Option Ticket | Fares & Passes | JR-EAST

Or this for your snow chase through Tohoku:
JR East Pass
This pass has an advantage over the regular JR pass as its validity is non continuous. It's a 5 days of use within 14 days period. It is good for those that make stops and stay at a location, then frequent travelling. Its disadvantage is the coverage are is limited to Tohoku only and if you are making very frequent rides more than 5 days.

lonely planet may be useful for some countries but not so much for japan coz japan-guide website and this forum provide much more information.


I only find Lonely Planet's Hiking in Japan useful, but even that can be borrow from the library. dun need to buy.

May I know what is the cheapest fare your manage to get for last year (2014) to Tokyo? Not budget airline but the normal carrier. Because wondering should I wait for promo fare by ANA or JAL or SQ before booking my flight for June'15 holidays. I have like 6 adults and 2 children.

SQ would be better than ANA or JAL.

March is more popular bah, so harder to book. Feb is relatively easy.

Just go to the website of the ryokan u want and send them a email. I did that for my booking for Iwaso. Emailed them in english
