rinkai line is slightly cheaper and faster, depending on where u stay. from Shinjuku, it is 500yen by rinkai line to Tokyo teleport station, compared to 520yen via yurikamome to odaiba-kaihinkoen station.
rinkai line is underground while yurikamome line is above ground and travels over the rainbow bridge. so for first timer, may be good to take yurikamome line for some sightseeing

refer to the link to japan-guide that cpuer posted.
u can alight at Aomi station for palette town or Daiba station for Divercity. both malls are walking distance from each other, so see which one u want to visit first.

shimbashi is quite far. u can use google map to check the distance. but it is possible to walk, and there are ppl who walk across rainbow bridge to enjoy the sights. it takes 30-45min to walk across according to japan-guide.

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.
Thx mate, i would like to ask how to improve schedule especially day 2-6 in kyoto and day 10-15.

Well I can suggest going to Himeji. Since your legs are beat, I also suggest you go to Kinosaki Onsen and have a day just soaking in the water. You should feel much better. Or Wakayama's shirohama Onsen is also a good bet.

Buy a costume and go to Amemura or Dotonbori on the 31st Oct. Bath in their Halloween. You will see almost everyone in costume.

since u have 16 days, u can go beyond the usual kyoto, osaka, nara kobe.
u can get the Kansai Wide pass to cover places like kinosaki onsen, amanohashidate, and kumano region in wakayama prefecture.
or can also consider going beyond kansai, maybe a few days for hiroshima

Just got back from Japan.
I used Kansai Wide Area Pass to visit Kurashiki, Nara, Kobe, Himeji and Kyoto.
One day for one place.
Naturally, we did not cover EVERYTHING but it was nice to visit some of the landmarks.

u cant cover all the places i have listed. have to decide which ones u want to go to.
for example, u can use the kansai-hiroshima pass to visit hiroshima, miyajima, okayama and kurashiki. or use kansai wide to visit kinosaki, okayama and kurshiki. or spend all 5 days in kumano region

Hi Bro,

I would like to ask your advice for my trip on Sept.

- Any recommendation for Ryokan and Kaiseki dinner experience in Kyoto for 1 day?
- Can recommend me hotel at osaka area, preferably close to city center area. My budget is around $ 150-200 per night.
- Any interesting place to visit at Osaka for 2 days?

Thanks in advance
