Hello folks, wanna ask if 1hr+ sufficient to transit within haneda? I seeing domestic to international mentioned no need collect luggage on ana
https://www.ana.co.jp/wws/sg/e/asw_c...n/checkin.html

But under haneda website need wor
http://www.haneda-airport.jp/inter/en/dept/dms_int.html
1hr quite tight, but not impossible.
The moment u get out of arrivals at HND, just turn right to check in for domestic.

Unless u need to get JR pass at HND, then it's an entirely different story....

Osaka-Tokyo-Osaka

Hi, I'm planning a 10 day trip to Osaka end nov. Hubby would like to go to Tokyo's one piece tower so I am deliberating between paying more for open jaw tix or just go for a side trip from Osaka.

Any views?

Our first time to Osaka.

Thanks in advance!

How much more for arriving at KIX and departing from HND??

Add this one way shinkansen ticket into the calculation.. Hikari from Shin-Osaka to Tokyo -> 14,140 per pax.

Day trip from Osaka?? If not getting JRP(Which is around S$350/pax or more depending on exchange rate for 7D pass) then u would need to pay like at least 28,280/pax for Hikari return ticket to Tokyo and back..And 3hr journey per leg so 6hrs on the train just for a day trip.

So it is much better to arrive KIX and leave by HND if you need to go Tokyo..

my noob advice...

I'm planning a 15-day trip with a flight in to Kix and departure via Nrt.
Basically covering Osaka, Kyoto and nearby areas, then taking shinkansen to Tokyo. Was trying to figure out the cost effectiveness of buying JR pass; with the pass would likely venture further afield but probably rushed.
So I came across this discount fare between Shin Osaka / Kyoto to Tokyo by Platt Kodomo :

apparently one can also buy from stations at Shin-Osaka/Kyoto :

but must buy one day before travel and journey's 1 hr to 1-1/2 hr longer but you get to save $46-50 (would save quite a bit for family group)

How expensive is it to ship packages home from Japan? Is it as cheap as Korea? My friend tells me she go Lotte Supermarket and just ship her buys to Singapore not expensive no need to carry around. Wondering what kind of charges it would be for Japan. I have so little luggage allowance and so many things to hoot

You can refer to Japan Post website for rates. This is the rate schedule for shipping to Singapore

I'm asking more if there are special rates or deals that one can find, or people's personal experiences on what options worked best for them. I know and looked up Japan Post already.

Oh my friend who goes to Japan quite regularly rec me to just use Japan Post since the rates are quite reasonable to send 1 box of stuff.

Personally I max out my luggage entitlement. Next trip planning to take airport limousine instead of NEX so I don't need to drag all my stuff.

I have not tried July weather but I've been in June and it was hot and sunny during the day whereas at night, it can be quite cool and breezy. July should be warmer with more rain. In short, SG-like weather.

Been there in end July (one week) and August (first two weeks) some years back. Zero rain. Everyday was around 30-37. One day in Disneyland got us totally roasted. Just need to be prepared for hot weather and an umbrella (for rain and shine).

Rain comes only if there's a passing typhoon.

It is hot and the train stations most no aircond. So bring a handkerchief. Summer can go check out the summer matsuris and firework festivals.
