Get it from the ticket office. Need to show passports to verify the birthdates so that the staff could issue the cards.

if transit at HND, confirm must go through JP immigration and customs with you luggage, once you walk out after customs, turn right and walk until you can see ANA and JAL luggage check in counters for domestic flights (BIC shop is near those counters). After that there's a path leading to the "bus terminal" for you to take to the domestic terminal
Okie got it!

Hi Guys

I am going to Japan ( Tokyo > Osaka > Tokyo) in the middle of November and below is my itinerary.

Would like to seek your opinions on my planned itinerary below if it is too rushed or is there a better and more convenient way to go around ?

I will start from Day 2 as my first day will be just travelling to Osaka from Tokyo via the Shinkansen after I land in the afternoon. Using JR Pass for the first 7 days


Sunday - Day 2 (Staying near Osaka station)

Osaka Castle > Kuromon Market > Dotonbori

Monday Day 3

Osaka > Nara Deer Park > Higashimuki Shotengai Shopping Street > Osaka > Shinsaibashi Shopping Street

Tuesday Day 4

Osaka > Kobe > Nunobiki Falls and Herb Garden > Mouriya > Nankinmachi (Kobe's Chinatown) > Kobe Motomachi > Kobe Harbourland > Osaka

Wednesday- Day 5

Osaka > Kyoto - Fushimi Inari Taisha > Nishiki Market > Arashiyama > Osaka

Thursday Day 6

Osaka > Tokyo > Shibuya (Check in and OTOT)

Friday Day 7

Shibuya > Hakone for the whole day > Shibuya

Saturday Day 8

Shibuya > Imperial Palace > Tsukiji Fish Market > Ginza ( Is it better to go Tsukiji Fish Market on weekdays for lesser crowds? )

Sunday Day 9

Shibuya > Asakusa (Sensoji Temple and Nakamise Shopping Street) > Ueno Park and Ameya Yokocho Arcade > Roppongi (any place to recommend?)

Monday Day 10

Shibuya > Akihabara > Odaiba (any place to recommend?)

Tuesday Day 11

Shibuya > Harajuku > Meiji Shrine > Shinjuku

Wednesday Day 12

Shibuya > Ikebukuro > Shibuya for the night

Thursday Day 13

Go back SG.

Thank you very much!!

Osaka > Kyoto - Fushimi Inari Taisha > Nishiki Market > Arashiyama > Osaka

mate, you spend quite a bit of time in each of these places and it takes a fair amount of travelling to get to each point. You can do Fushimi Inari and Nishiki together. Arashiyama is most likely out of the question.

You are going to see crowds at Tsukiji, the inner wholesale market has moved iirc but the outer market is what most ppl go there for anyway

Roppongi is nice but it is a little hard, there is Mori tower which has an observation deck. There is a shrine that is a little off the track there and got nightlife which I am not too into

Ok I shall play by ear if I am able to go Arashiyama since I got to return my kimono haha.

I am not sure where to go yet in roppongi. Maybe just dinner with beer haha

Odaiba can go to the onsen there. There are indoor and outdoor pools. I quite enjoy it.

Ikebukuro got nothing interesting except shopping, which can be found elsewhere too.
