will be travelling to kansai from 25jun to 2jul. found out there this is the rainy season? how bad will it be? cos I plan to go to uss and do some cycling etc

I think it depends on luck lah.
where will u be cycling? wat u can do is to keep ur plans flexible so u can adjust according to weather forecast.

Oh.. Its like not Singapore dhoby ghaut circle line NE line, where they all stop at this specific station? After taking the Keikyu and reach Shinagawa, I have to change another transport? Or did I mistaken your explanation.
My flight reach at 1605. So after everything done should be maybe 5pm. Should be will reach Shinagawa before 6. Any idea if its very congest?
taking keikyu is direct to shinagawa but taking the monorail is not.

Japan Rail Pass and rail travel in Japan complete guide – JPRail.com » Blog Archive » How to access from Haneda airport to downtown Tokyo

keikyu: haneda -> shinagawa

(monorail) haneda -> hamamatsucho +
(JR yamanote line) hamamatsucho -> shinagawa

so when you board the 2nd train at hamamatsucho (diff level of the same building as the monorail), it could be crowded as the yamanote line usually is during peak hours. not very sure about pm crowd cos i took in during am peak.

Oh.. okay!
Luckily I think I will get Shinagawa, so don need to change another train right?
Currently found a apartment on airbnb near there but for 6 nights cost 2.1k
Trying to look for discount code for airbnb, hope can get those 15% or 20% one, even if max 300 is also good enough.
Anyone has any code to share?

Haneda Int'l Aiport to Omiya (Saitame)

Dear all, I will be landing into Handea Int'l Airport on a Monday 9.30am and have to head to the railway museum straight, thereafter to Shinjuku (as railway museum is closed on Tuesday).


I would like advice on crowded train situations on below route (as I suspect some may be local trains). We have 2 adults wif 2 luggage and a toddler in hand.

10:23 HANEDA AIRPORT INTERNATIONAL BUILDING take Monorail Haneda Express to Hamamatsucho take JR Keihin-Tohoku/ Negishi Line Rapid to UENO and change to JR Takasaki Line.

Thanks!

Should be OK one. By the time u are boarding monorail is already 10.30 or later. If the luggage is too much a hassle, u can get those large locker in Ueno to store them when you go for your museum. Or leave them in your hotel if it is along the route.

My airbnb is in Shinjuku and can't deposit luggage in noon. I planned to deposit bag in Omiya since I have to get out of the station to change to another line. If Ueno, just change of platform right?

My main question here is what pass can I make use of? Confused..

If you have a large luggage, I'd suggest the airport bus for convenience. Slightly longer but you don't have to carry about carrying heavy luggages while monitoring your daughter. Tickets can be purchased at some hotels. Have a look at https://www.limousinebus.co.jp/en/bu.../shinjuku.html.

No sky train but shuttle bus.

If we'll be alighting in Tokyo Station from Narita Airport Terminal 2, any significant advantage on taking an airport limousine bus instead of the Keisei or Access Narita? Price of limousine bus is almost double of those of the other two.

inclined on taking the Access Narita as the stop is not that complicated (just Ginza and Tokyo) and my hotel is anyway not a stop of Limousine bus. But still curious why Limousine Bus is more expensive.
