Hey guys, will be heading to Tokyo in Feb, any recommended hotels that have view facing the Tokyo Tower ?
Park Hotel Tokyo. A little pricey but it should be cheaper than Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills.

Going for hanami end of March/early April 2017. Will be doing Tokyo/Kyoto/Osaka. Just wandering if I should go in the direction of Osaka>Tokyo or opposite direction Tokyo>Osaka for better chance to catch the peak blossom.

about hokkiado resort liner

Hi,

I have question the ski bus by Hokkaido resort liner. I am planning to take a ski bus from Sapporo to Grand Hirafu area on 16 December 2016. The time expected to reach Hirafu is 1100 hrs. However, do they often arrive late or mostly on time? I will be having activities at niseko village at 1345 and I still need time to leave my bags in Hirafu area and having lunch as well. Does anyone here use this bus before?

Thanks.

Btw, now can still exchange n reserve at same counter? Read online Seems to be separate counters now.
I did the same thing, nex to shinagawa then to shin Osaka. The staff will still do. You just need to inform the staff when queuing

Should be alright. The rush hour generally is between 8am to 9am.

wow that makes it a little difficult but at bright side is u get a bit of time to grab some refreshment and it is not that rush

it was a pretty tight change from NEX to Shinkansen at Shinagawa station for us
