Questions on Osaka

Thx.. Will go thru the list.

Hi Dimitri
I will be in Osaka in 2 weeks and appreciate your advice on the following:

A) How do you recommend I get from Kansai Airport to Hearton Hotel Shinsaibashi?
B) Transport directions from Hearton Hotel to Universal Studios?
C) Do I need to buy a MRT card or buying the single-trip ticket is fine?
D) How to go to Kyoto/Nara?
F) Any other side trips you recommend?
G) Length of visit - 8 days
H) Must Eat / Must buy will be nice

Thank you.

hi TS, not sure if you will know
shower rooms at airport (haneda), they are rented by 30 minutes.
this 30 minutes can share by many people? or must 1 person 1 room?

Legoland is in Decks, which is near Odaiba Kaihinkoen station.
take JR Yamanote line to Shimbashi station. then take Yurikamome line to Odaiba Kaihinkoen station.

alternatively, u can to go Tokyo Teleport station, which is slightly further away from Decks, but the train ride is faster.
from shinjuku, take the JR Saikyo line to Osaki station then change to Rinkai line to Tokyo Teleport station
Tokyo Travel: Odaiba (Daiba)

Rinkai line is underground while Yurikamome line is aboveground, going over the rainbow bridge. so if u wan a bit of sightseeing on the train, go for Yurikamome line

u can probably go asakusa in the morning and then odaiba for afternoon and night. there are lots to do in odaiba to last for 1 day, so shldnt be a problem. u could of coz have some back up plan in case u get bored of odaiba

day 2 can be done, if u get to the market early and then visit the shrine before noon and have the whole afternoon for shinjuku. bear in mind the queueing time at tsukiji market if u plan to eat at those famous sushi stores such as sushi-da and sushi-daiwa. the queue can be more than an hour

Hi,
Planning for my first trip to Japan with gf, need some advise here.
Is it a good time to travel to Hokkaido from June 1st to 9?
Will it be a good idea to fly from sg to haneda then transit to Sapporo? Is that any discounted flight ticket for domestic flight?
Is it advisable to self driving in Hokkaido?
Is that any good sample itinerary for 7/8 days Hokkaido trip?

Thanks in advance.
