hi all , its my first time going kawaguchiko. I was thinking of spending 2d1night at there before heading to hakone+ odawara in the next day. Is it recommended?

Im still deciding to go hakone or not as there seems to be alot of exploring in kawaguchiko.
1) im thinking of going
- chuitero pagoda
- ashino hakkai
-kawaguchiko music forest
-natural living centre
-ropeway
Any other places is gd to visit?
2) is it still worth to take the fuji hakone pass at 8000 yen even if im not going to hakone?
3) is gotemba outlet worth to go ?


Thank you so much

Your device's menus, settings etc will be in Japanese and not necessarily have option to change to English.

Also, if your device need to plug into wall socket, it will likely be only 100-110v compatible.

No difference to me. It’s like Ezlink and NETS Flashpay. Works the same, just issued by different companies.

Only for Pasmo. Suica has a •220 admin charge if I didnít recall wrongly.

Going Osaka, Kyoto n Nara end of this month. I saw the temperature will be like 15 to 0 degrees

I dun travel often to cold countries n no winter jackets.

Now not much winter jackets to buy but I saw Uniqlo still selling ultra light down. I will wear t-shirt n thermal wear inside if is too cold. Is it good enough to protect me from the cold especially at night?

Tochigi

hi hi im gg on a 1 week sch trip in late May to this uni (IUHW) in Otawara, Tochigi. we only have lessons from around 9am and our itinerary is till latest 4pm everyday and we're free after that.

i did a search online & theres nothing of my interest. maybe will head to 1 park or something.

anyone has visited this prefecture/area before care to share what else to do? tbh, i kinda want to head to Tokyo to get something!!! but an eastern tohoku JR pass is so $$$$ and idk if its worth the pass/travel.

am also wondering, the nearest station to my apartment is Nishinasuno. but im kinda unsure about the trains/passes/subway. is nishinasuno a regular subway station where i can use my suica card (does it expire? i bought it during my Osaka trip in '15).

appreciate all the help i can get. thanks!!
