how about staying a night at Rinku town and do some shopping then take domestic flight the next day?
That sounds good! I was going to ask if there's any place that's near kansai international. Shall check out the hotels there then.

Any Recommendations for a scenic trip to Japan in Dec? I have only been to japan once and that was on tour to hokkaido.

This time round wanna really explore japan but not too rushed type of itinerary. Something that can really get to enjoy the scenery and also experience the culture and food. Thinking of 2wks trip in dec.

Any recommendations?

Need some help with trains... I can't visualize the route I'd be taking from Narita to Asakusa

Which line(s) do I get on? Do the line(s) serve the same platform? Are there 'wrong' trains to take?

I have a borrowed pasmo from a friend.

Powerbanks not allowed in check-in luggage. In hand-carry bag should be fine.

Hyperdia is your friend. Few suggestions:

Quickest route seems to be Keisei Skyliner from Narita to Keisei-Ueno station. Then walk to Ueno station and take Tokyo Metro Ginza Line to Asakusa.

Most convenient route seems to be Keisei Access Express (SkyAccess?) direct to Asakusa http://www.keisei.co.jp/keisei/tetud...r/us/index.php

there is direct Keisei Access Express line to Asakusa:

same platform can serve trains going to different destination. but the good thing is that the schedule is very accurate. so just make sure u take the train at the correct time. and refer to the electronic signboard for train information

since it is ur first time doing a F&E in japan, maybe Tokyo will be good place to start. for natural sceneries, u can head to nearby places such as Hakone, Lake Kawaguchi and Nikko. if u take a more relaxed pace, these places can take 2-3 days each, so it is easy to fill up a 2 weeks trip

Hello all!!
I'm going Izu for a day trip. Any idea where I can buy the Ito Free Pass?
Here's the link. Is it only available to purchase at Ito Station? Can I buy at Atami Station?
This link says that I can buy free pass at white letters on the map which includes Atami Station(?).

So confused TIA!

Hi i got a question.

when i tried booking online on USS japan. i saw the price was 7,200 yen which is quite ok with me.

but i noticed there's an express pass with harry potter and spider man and etc.

you mean to say you need to buy entrance tickets and get an express tickets to get to experience the harry potter place??

i totalled it up and its aroun $330 for 2 people. WOW thats expensive.

is this normal? can i any means get it cheaper?

Express pass means you get to skip the queue for those attractions, i.e. pay extra to queue less.
