How much cheaper do you need it to be?? And it's 7000y not 70k. Big difference.

My sincere apologies for the typo error. I'm going there for 3 months, that's why I need to budget. Thanks for your understanding

Anyone can help?

Express bus. Can be as low as 2,000yen. Current fares are around 3,000yen. Take the overnight bus and you save one day's accommodation.

hi, I have thought of that too but I need to travel to Shinjuku then take a bus to Osaka at around 12 midnight. And my flight lands early morning in Haneda. Seems like there isn't any straight bus from Haneda to Osaka

Hi all, I'm going on a 4 week holiday to Sapporo(Biei, Otaru) total 5 days, Tokyo + Mt Fuji total 11 days, Kyoto 5 days and Osaka 4 days. Just wondering what more do I need in terms of transport? I'm planning to get the 21 day JR pass, but I know some places wont be accessible via JR transport. Just want to budget for the other transport charges. Im heading there 19 Dec and coming back in Jan

Appreciate anyone's help!

My last destination for the trip is hakodate to Singapore, and I realised there's no direct flight even for ANA or JAL.

Any cheaper options (airline) to fly back singapore? Because it's a 1 way ticket, and ANA/JAL is too expensive.

Kyoto
1. Arashiyama Bamboo Forest
2. Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine
3. Nara Deer Park



Toyko
1. Tsukiji Fish Market
2. Disneysea
3. Shibuya Crossing
4. Pokemon Center
5. Fuji ( for views? Need not climb)

Thank you!

Scoot stops over in Taipei (or is that Tiger? One of them at least)

You can't avoid a domestic sector if flying from Hakodate - you either go Sapporo then to Singapore through Bangkok on Thai Airways, or you fly to Haneda/Narita and then to SG.

Go NRT/HND can direct back toSG. Go CTS cannot. The choice is obvious if your budget allows.

If you can reverse your itin maybe you can start HKD instead. I feel it's easier to plan the journey home.

Hakodate you can fly back to Tokyo. Domestic flight cost around 10k Yen for one way.
After you reach Tokyo got many choices to fly back to Singapore.

1.5 days seems short for Kyoto unless u going to do Bamboo Forest + Fushimi Inari as 1 day
and then Nara Park as half day? Nara normally people will go Todaiji as well.
For Arashiyama, worth to go Tenryuji.

For Tokyo, Mount Fuji u will need to go Kawaguchiko. Maybe make it a 1 overnight onsen trip at ryokan there.

Yep intend to do bamboo forest and inari in a day, would there be enough time to add in tenryuji?

For Tokyo,
We will love the onsen/ryokan experience! Will it be tight for an overnight onsen near Fuji considering the many other places we aim to explore?

This is regards to the transportation time, and would it be worth to stay at Fuji area, (what could be the itinerary over at Kawaguchiko/Fuji area for a day?).

Appreciate!
