Hello all,

I will be arriving on 7th Nov, 930am. Me and buddy will be trying to catch the 1PM J League match at Kashiwa Hitachi Stadium.
Will there be lockers for our luggages at the train station?

I've checked the schedules on HyperDia, takes about 70mins to get from Haneda to Kashiwa... we should have enough time.
Anybody over there now willing to help me purchase tickets from Lawson?

Hi,

I have 2 question, 1 qns which I am unable to find my answer in the web and the other 2nd question just to make confirmation.

1) I am arriving in Haneda Airport but I need to pick up my friends in Narita Airport on the same day.
I am aware that there is a Limousine bus pass from Haneda to town and back to Haneda airport, its a 2 ways pass valid for 14 days.
Does anyone know if I could use this pass and travel to Narita Airport on the first day instead of going to town? And the return pass to Haneda after 10 days.

2) Anyone know what is the cheapest option to purchase Puroland & Tokyo Disneyland tickets?

Thanks!

For those who did f&e, is it easy to find parking place (for Hokkaido). How much is the parking fee and if it's by hour?

I believe you need to purchase separate tickets

I would strongly suggest that you meet in Tokyo city area like at Shinjuku since the airport limousines go there.

2) Anyone know what is the cheapest option to purchase Puroland & Tokyo Disneyland tickets?

Thanks!
Find a place that accept payment in Yen...

Yeah as mentioned most of the rural areas are free, Sapporo and Otaru are the ones that you have to pay... Had quite a tough time finding a place in Otaru, whereas for Sapporo I just take the public transport

So while you were in Sapporo, you didn't have the car anymore? Or you just chose to rent the car for the duration of travelling to the more rural areas like Furano/Biel?

Yeah I rented the car on the day I left Sapporo but I did came back to Sapporo at night and had to return the car the next morning. Just check with the hotel, usually they will have some tie-up with nearby parking garages for a flat overnight rate or something.

Ah paiseh, it's included! You can double checked with hyperdia. Between Ofuna and Kurihama (JR Yokosuka line) has Kamakura, sorry for the mis information. When you reference Japan-guide I will have to double check, because they are a reliable source

Can't quite remember exactly but I do recall paying in coins so I don't think it will cost anything upwards of JPY1000 for half a day of parking. (iirc its either hourly fee or block of 3hrs and I park somewhere near the music box museum)
