Anyone can help me to put this into tabelog? Not sure how to do a search in Japanese. Trying to find a restaurant that serves this in Tokyo.

What about takaosan? Its very much described by japan-guide

When I was there in Dec, most koyo had fallen except one stretch besides the cable car, can imagine that place is very nice during the peak season.

its open all year round. They have cable car and chair lifts. But during my visit the chair lifts were closed for maintenance. I would prefer the chair lifts. But the best time to visit is during koyo season.

I would suggest u stay over there for the night (i'm guessing it would be much more cost effective than taking a taxi)

Hi Bullseye

Thanks for your response. I noted the operating hours of the buses there ... and wonder how i get back to the hotel should i stay for the light up. Taxi perhaps, but i suppose it will be quite ex

Hi folks wanted to run some queries.

When you guys buy the JR pass, how do you book online to reserve the seats?

I was trying to see if i could book online for dec 9 from Tokyo to Shin Osaka but was unable to get any traction.

I do know they use the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen though...

In additional, when you guys buy JR Pass how do you normally collect and book the train services? Sorry about too many questions, as I have kids with me, and CO expects full battle order...

Think your CO worry too much... Dec 9 is a normal weekday. Not many ppl taking Shinkansen.

You cannot book online if you are using JR pass. There are enough seats, so no need to worry too much. Once you have your JR pass, start to book your tickets, then won't have any issues.

Pls see below video for details



If you need additional details, pls feel free to ask here or pm me. Or ask your CO contact me, i give him a briefing on travelling in Japan... =)

Actually now u can.

Online booking only for select JR east train service

https://www.jreast.co.jp/e/ticket/reservation.html

Can only book one month before.

Catch is if you fail to collect your tickets on the day before, you must pay the full reservation fee (510 yen)

Just need to change Jr pass and collect it at a midorinomadoguchi
