Hi guys/gals,

On Monday I'm taking this journey:

17:16
begin NARITA AIRPORT TERMINAL 1
LTD. EXP NARITA EXPRESS 40
18:18

18:40

transfer TOKYO
[ Arrival track No.2 / Departure track No.21 ]
SHINKANSEN HAKUTAKA 575
20:38

end IIYAMA
22min connection should be pretty reasonable. But ... am I right in assuming that there wouldn't be enough time to go hunt down an ekiben shop, choose a bento, pay for it, and still navigate to the shinkansen terminal on time?

Cos it's around dinner time, scared hungry leh. Better to just order something on the 2nd train?

22 mins is okay if you do everything chop chop and there is no queue. If you can, buy your bento nearer to the shinkansen terminal... Better still on the shinkansen platform

Quite some distance from one another, but if you get the direction right, should be enough still

kifo cpuer so I should (barring any delays, and as long as I pre familiarize with the station layout) be able to buy an ekiben from one of the stores past the Shinkansen gate or on the Shinkansen platform ... will play it by ear

Thanks!!! 👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿

Now to worry about my shoes since the weather's gone cold again. Ordered a cheap $30 boot from lazada at the beginning of the month but seems like it won't arrive in time ORZ

Not too sure if I should be going all over nozawa onsen and monkey park wearing onizuka Tigers lol

how about getting bento on the shinkansen itself? but selections will be a lot lesser. price wise it is about the same as those sold at the station.

get thick woollen socks. shoes alone may not be enuf if it is snowing.

Onitsuka tiger shoes are quite slipperly there (tried and tested ) Do take extra care walking cause its pretty much up/down slope all the time in Nozawa onsen and there isn't proper walking pavements in most areas. Vehicles and us are sharing lanes.

plz note that Narita Express Services are all by reservation...there's no free seating...especially if you are using any rail pass....

might be worth it to order a shoe spikes attachment on amazon and send it to your hotel...

I am planning a trip, total 4 of us will be flying.

Reach Narita 23rd Mar, Apr 1 reach Osaka, Back to sg on Apr 8.

I am wondering what would be good options for travelling from narita to tokyo -1 way- and then from tokyo to osaka -also 1 way-?

Thanks in advance!
