hello,

I'll be in Tokyo at the end of this month, and just realised that Ghibli museum tickets are hard to get. Anyone has advice on how I can purchase tickets now? the bridge website isn't taking any more orders for January..

thanks!

If you happen to go Takashimaya, you can go to JTB at level 3 to purchase the rail pass

there is also H.I.S at 100am (Amara) in tanjong pagar.
the JR pass price is fixed at 29110yen, but different retailers use different exchange rates. so u may want to compare around and see which is cheapest.
HIS accepts payment in yen. so if u have good rates for ur yen, can buy from HIS.

note that when u purchase here, it is only the exchange order for the JR pass. u will need to use the exchange order to obtain the actually pass when u are in japan

If you send an English email to an inn requesting late check in

And the inn replies one word: 'ko'

Is this possibly a typo, or is this the Japanese way of saying NO?

think this is very subjective. really depend on ur interest.
maybe u can list the places u plan to visit in each city, then we can better advise which one will make more economical sense or which is too rush/packed
