Can do it at convenient store i think. More impt is the accom after. Coz they need to receive ur luggage. If airbnb, i dunno if they can help with luggage.
Ah ok. I tot only can drop off at certain counters as per the yamato website and from hotel reception.

Convenience stores can too?

for Kanazawa, 2 days can explore finish the whole town le. buy the 1day bus card. you can take almost all buses that run through the town infinitely.
personally i like Takayama more than Kanazawa.

tokyo will be taking internal flight to osaka > kyoto > tokyo
jr pass worth?
Rather than waiting for someone else to spoon feed you, a 10-second google would give you 1. The cost of the JR pass, and 2. The cost of "ala carte" one way shinkansen tickets, and you'd have your answer.

Need some help with suica

I'm confused as to which to get for my trip. Will be travelling around Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and maybe Nara for 11 days.

Itinerary

DAY 1-5 Tokyo

DAY 5-7 Osaka

DAY 7-10 Kyoto

DAY 11 Tokyo

I already have 7 day jr pass and will activate it on day 5 when I move to Osaka.

Can a IC card bought in Tokyo work in osaka? Likewise if bought in Osaka can use elsewhere?

Also, will the card work on bus routes in kyoto?

Thanks for your help

I tried to Google but it seems 5th station seems to be a good place to view mt fuji, so I'm leaning towards klook's itinerary. Which one will u suggest since the price difference is almost $100 more?

Our main purpose is to see Mt Fuji, hakone we didn't go before too!

5th station is on the slopes on mt fuji, so u can still see the top of mt fuji. But mt fuji is meant to be view from far, to see the symmetrical shape, and best view over lake kawaguchi with the reflections to form a diamond shape.
