hi i just received an offer from someone to help craft my itinerary.

Has anyone ever used this service from this website before?

1) Visit our blog at: (www.viahero.com/blog/), and click into one of the Japan blog posts. At the bottom of the blog post's window, there will be a small pop-up to enter your email and it offers you, at random, either a discount (of 5, 10, or 20%) or a free day (referred to as a "First Day Free"); you may get the free day offer when you first enter the blog post, or you can refresh the page until you do see it.

2) Once you see the free day deal pop-up, enter your email address, click the button on the right, and you'll be given a choice to start trip planning. You'll also get an email (if you need more time) that contains a link for the free day, which will forward you back to the website to cash in the deal.

3) Once on the website, select the desired country (Japan) and hero (me, Andre), and book me for just 1 day at NO COST to you! You can fill out your interests, what you want to do for that day, where you want to go, and more. I will then help you prepare a detailed, in-depth itinerary for that particular day (including food, lodging, transport, activities, general maps/Google maps, etc); this will also be downloadable and visible on the Trip Plans app (no WiFi or data required). Outside of that day, I'll continue to give recommendations and advice for your entire trip on a general basis, as I have done so far.

Looks like a paid service. Interesting concept.

What mode of transport would be ideal if I am heading to Haneda Airport from Shinjuku around 6 or 7 pm (peak hour)
I took limousine bus cos there is a stop at the hotel next door, less than 1 hr to reach Haneda and very convenient since I have lots of luggage. If need be just take an earlier bus?

Hi,

This is private rail line, you cannot buy it at any JR station.

If you are at a station with JR and private lines running through, you will see that you might have to exit JR gate and enter private railway gate in order to take the private trains.

Some of them are more extreme, you have to exit from the station and enter another station. E.g. JR Ueno and Keisei Ueno stations.
