Tokyo got many different shinkansen line. I can go Tohoku day trip or go Kanazawa also no problem. Tokyo Station area i also more familiar since i always stay around there.

I never go Japan before in Summer, only in Spring/Autumn period. Too warm and Humid for me in summer.

ueno station also have shinkansen to tohoku region. shinkansen from tokyo station passes ueno before going to north to tohoku.
accom in ueno is much cheaper

Hi,

If it is necessary to purchase reserve seat train tickets for travelling from Sapporo to Furano, which takes at least 2 hr of travelling. I am afraid train might be pack during the Jul period, not enough free seating seats.

Thanks in advance.

you can reserve as there are limited express services from Sapporo to Asahikawa..from Asahikawa to Furano is local line...not possible to reserve

If timing is good then not bad. I went to osaka on ANA at 700 flat all in. But reach osaka's namba via limo bus, around 9pm liao. so if can reach earlier (best if late morning then good )

is it direct or need to transit in Tokyo?
coz if I remember correctly, only SQ flies direct to Osaka.


if need transit, can consider MH or CX. will be much cheaper.

Yup taking SQ. Transit not good cuz the time taken is range from 9hrs+ to 11hrs +.

Does osaka have something similar of tokyo Akihabara? Wanna get data card first thing after touching down

I thinking of first few days in osaka, weekends registration +marathon, the remaining days in kyoto n/or osaka, come back after Halloween.

Den Den town in namba will be similar to Akiba.


maybe put Kyoto before the marathon? in case chuiz after the marathon coz need more walking around for sightseeing in Kyoto.

Depends on where you want to go, they have a few stations within Odaiba, one underground another is above ground.

Shimbashi is where u take the Yurikamome line to odaiba.
on odaiba itself, there are various stations, depending on where u want to go.
