If it snows in Tokyo then its called a freak weather incident. Go towards Japan Sea and higher ground will have higher chance for snow.

Anybody knows if the the instant noodle museum in osaka and yokohama are the same? From what I see on the websites they look the same but it seems that entry to the one in osaka is free while the one on yokohama costs 500Y. Anybody been to both? Deciding on which one to visit.thanks

You have to decide on where to visit then see which pass is the best

The Ikeda, Osaka one has the historic significance than the Yokohama one

My 4 day plan of Osaka
Use the Hankyu tourist 2 day pass (1300Y) for the 1st 2 days and perhaps the Osaka amazing 2 day pass for 3000 yen for day 3 and day 4

Day 1:
I am staying near Nakatsu station which is 1 stop away from Umeda station
Morning take the 1 hour hankyu train trip from Umeda to go to Arashiyama. Walk about and admire the scenery. Spend 2 hours there? How long does it take to walk around?

Take the train from Arashiyama to Kawaramachi Station. Walk to Nishiki market for lunch and look around.

Afternoon go to Imperial palace or visit Tofukuji temple. Is it possible to do this 2 places in one afternoon with early sunset ? Too rush?

Have dinner at downtown Kyoto and then take a Hankyu train back to Umeda/Nakatsu from Kawaramachi station

Day 2:
Morning use the Hankyu pass to go to Minoo park. How long does it take to walk around the park? Hopefully have time to also go to the cupnoodle museum at Ikeda till about lunch time.

Afternoon either use the Hankyu pass to go to Kobe or donít use the pass and visit Nara and visit nara park, Todai-ji temple, Kofuku-ji temple, Kasuga Taisha shrine and deers.

To me Nara looks more attractive while Kobe another big city though the kobe beef seems like a good attraction !

From my calculations I would be able to save some money using the Hankyu tourist 2 day pass even though if go to Nara it would costs me 1600 Y return trip from Osaka station as I cannot use the pass.

Day 3 and Day 4:
Thinking of using the Osaka amazing 2 day pass for 3000 yen to visit attractions like Osaka castle, museum, ferris wheel etc within Osaka area. Also shopping and visit Dotonburi, Namba, shinsaibashi etc

If I get the 1 day Osaka amazing pass then that will leave me with 1 spare day. Should I with 1 spare day visit Nara (means I go to Kobe on day 2) or go to Himeiji castle or head back to Kyoto to visit more attractions there?.

I am open to suggestions and advice to my plans. Thanks

Arashiyama can take you one day just to cover the main sights. If you allocate 2 hrs, the most is to do a quick look-see at Tenryuji and Bamboo Groves only. And you still have to walk back to Arashiyama hankyu stn for your next destination.

http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3912.html

IMO, Nara is nicer than Kobe.

The 1 or 2 days Amazing Osaka passes you can look though the list of attractions to decide if they worth your money and time or not. For me I gotten the 1 day pass only and did 2 onsens, 1 river cruise and one ferris wheel ride with it. I got my money worth and did things that I enjoyed only.

my suggestion - choose either Arashiyama or Minoo park. you are spreading your itinerary too thin and not allocating enough time for each event. your morning itinerary for day 1&2 is not realistic.

for general anime stuff, there is Den Den town which is the Osaka equivalent of Akihabara. there is also the usual Bic and Yodobashi Camera department stores for model kits and figurines and other toys.


if u are looking for anime related attractions, it depending on wat anime u are into. I can only think of the pokemon centres in osaka and the tetsujin28 statue in kobe. maybe Kyoto to visit the sites that are featured in assassination classroom ,k-on and other animes.

what he meant is that u can only determine which pass is best based on the places u are going.
if u are just visiting the places within Tokyo city, u dun really need any passes. just get a store-value card, such as SUICA, to get ard.
