What’s worth the ‘money’? Sorry your question is really lacking an objective value measure.

SQ only need to spend $2k, shorter travel time. Why is this not an obvious choice - only you yourself can answer.

$2k is only for kids’ air ticket,like i already mentioned in my first post that adult tickets ($1.3k per pax) will be redeemed using krisflyer miles. my qns is shld i just buy ana since it’s overall more reasonable priced(saved the krisflyers miles for other trips) or go for sq though paying $2k for kids ticket which is so much ex compared to other airline

Honestly then how you value the miles vs cash outlay is an equation only you alone know. Asking other people is really not very useful in such scenarios.

I wouldn’t fly ANA simply because of the added stopover on the way to Osaka. And like Gixx I wouldn’t redeem economy class to Japan. So what’s the trade off? Only you know.

it will really depend on how easily you earn airmiles and how much you value them. If you don’t easily earn them and will find it hard to get enough for business class tickets, then spending it on a family holiday is a nice way to ‘share’ the wealth .... sometimes family members get extra satisfaction from a ‘free ticket’. Plus you will get to fly to Osaka direct.

If you think you can earn more and get business class tickets in the future - then maybe save it up for a special trip with your wife (and no kids if you can arrange it), and pay for the family to fly ANA instead.

Ok, I've decided to go Tokyo next year. One of the places I plan to go outside of Tokyo is Hakone, is 1 day trip enough? Where else should I go that's outside of Tokyo? Already planned to stay 4d3n in Tokyo itself, got a few days to spend outside of it.

Actually if you are going so nearby only, just use their normal ICOCA card. No need to get the Kansai pass. Your trips not that expensive, Nara and Kyoto not even that far apart. If you wish to estimate, try using google maps and put in the locations, they will give you a price to and fro.

Is 1 night stay enough? It takes 85 mins to reach Odawara and maybe max 1 hr till the Gotemba. Attractions usually take 30 mins-1hr depending on human traffic. Not sure if half day + next day(depending on when u want go back to tokyo) would be enough?

Confirm will stay 1 night at Hakone, ready to burn money for 1 room there, wonder if in-room onsen got bo. That time go Kinosaki no such thing, their law there is the onsen must be in shared area.
