National Jr pass not covered on Nozomi trains along the Tokaido/Sanyo Shinkans. Just checking is there a better and quicker route to get to Osaka , Kyoto from Tokyo?

Take the hikari train. It's still pretty fast.

Hi ... where can I find info on the schedule of local bus from Echigo Yuzawa station to Naeba/Kagura? Is this local bus running everyday or is there any special day for operations? Thanks!
Not sure if I'm too late. http://www.naeba.gr.jp/en/access/

Hi all,

Just realize that the first day we will be in Japan is their Thanksgiving Day. Gonna travel on the Shinkansen from Shinagawa (or maybe Tokyo Station) to Nagoya, then the Wide Hida to Takayama on that very day. Previously my main worry was the morning rush hour crowd but since it is their public holiday, will it also be crowded in the early morning? Am traveling in a group of 7 including 2 kids.

We will touch down at 6am on the 23rd Nov and got to rush to collect our JR passes also. Will it be better to collect our JR passes at Tokyo Station instead of waiting for Haneda JR office to open at 7:45am? And the chances of getting seats should be higher at Tokyo Station right?

Sorry super noob here, first time doing free and easy trip in Japan. First trip to Japan was years ago joining a tour agency.

Thank you in advance!

Would help if you clarify what kind of things you're looking to buy. Clothes? Souvenirs? Snacks? JAV DVDs?

I guess I can only do it this way.

But I saw that a few commented that the JR office in Haneda Airport only have 2 counters and the queue is usually long.

I'm not a fan of shopping so I can't help here, but if you are desperate for an answer, why don't just Google for some shopping places with your gf's requirement in mind? Got internet to come edmw ask, sure can go Google what...?

Harajuku towards Omotesando and Shibuya for clothes. Actually Shinjuku - can go to Mylord. Lots of small shops in the building selling ladies stuff.

Snacks go to departmental store basements or Tokyo station. Ameyoko in Ueno is another place to look for shoes and snacks.
