Any yakiniku restaurants in Tokyo to recommend? Looking for something that has non-beef options as well as my partner doesn't take beef. TIA

ok i booked the highway bus ticket to lake kawaguchiko for mid dec. after reading some guides, i find that kawaguchiko has better views of mt fuji compared to hakone
To see Mount Fuji also need to depend your luck, if cloudy day, u won't able to see it, imo Hakone in this case has more sightseeing than lake kawaguchiko

Tokyo Subway Ticket - where to buy?
-----------------------
(At Haneda and Narita Airports, the Tokyo Subway Ticket is only sold to overseas visitors who can produce passports with tourist visas. Please note that Japanese citizens cannot purchase the Tokyo Subway Ticket at these airports no matter where they live)

will arrive at Kansai airport, travelling from Osaka to kyoto to tokyo, where can I get the tokyo ticket since we do not come from Haneda or narita airport?

accommodation in Tokyo is near Minowa station.

tks.

I believe BIC is now an official seller of these subway passed. Some hotels sell as well, but probably the big name ones. Check the Tokyo Metro website they do mention alternative sale locations.

the JR office does not really look for an official stamp iirc

what they want is the receipt with your names on it and the matching passports

you will be asked to fill up a form and once the staff verifies the names, they will confirm the pass and pass you a card with the information you filled out on the card.

Narita airport JR east office is being renovated but they got a english speaking staff handling the queue. The staff at the counter mostly can speak english as well

I was in Tokyo 2 days ago. Gingko avenue peaking but can see many fallen leaves. I also went Rikugien and Koshikawa Korakuen. Those are all in peak so should be fine for 30th.
In terms of both, Rikugien is better.
cpuer and kanashii23 like this.
