Thatís why I said they wonít be cheap. Search for weekday stays. And if your children are above 6, the ryokans/hotels will charge. $800-1000 would be a better budget for one night with attached private bath. Those in Hakone and Kawaguchiko probably would cost around there. Unless you wish to consider other areas such as Atami (easy access from Tokyo) or further inside of Izu Peninsula.
yah... kids can range from 30% to 50% of adult price... but some dun even allow kids...

hmmm... looks like need to expand my budget...

hi all,
i will be planning to visit osaka, kobe, nara and kyoto for first 2 weeks of dec.
which city should i visit on the weekend, ie fri, sat, and sun?
i reckoned this will coincide with the peak of the autumn leaf season, so kyoto is going to pretty crowded on weekends .....

Talking about onsen, how long do you stay inside? Some say 5-10mins only but some could stay for 30mins or so.

all these r in e Eastern side. just remb to factor in daylight hours n walking time. iirc Kodaji n Kiyomizu require a lot of walking.

1hr is considered quite good. I dont think I can stay more than 30mins even though I rotate.

I couldnt stay long in the 42degC bath not coz of heat but its was quite difficult to breathe, perhaps due to hot steam?? But the 40.x degC bath was still ok for me.

15degC bath also cant stay long inside.. lol.

The onsen resorts with multiple pools with different temps or styles can really stay longer. If just the one pool then stay until bored lor.

Hi. My hotel is in shinjuku. I would like to go nikko.
Should i take the JR/tobu line at shinjuku or the tobu lone at asakusa?
For a day trip, enough time to travel to the waterfall?

You use google maps.
Key in Shinjuku station/ the station of departure to Tobu Asakusa station.

Tobu Tourist Information centre Asakusa is where you can get the passes to Nikko and it is situated in Tobu Asakusa station in a shopping centre bulding called Ekimise.

Please note that there are different Asakusa stations and you need to go the TOBU Asakusa station.

Please note that this place is different from Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center which is just opposite Kaminarimon.

If you wanna visit the waterfall, please check the weather forecast to make sure it is not raining cos the fog may obscure the view.

Definitely got time to see Kegon falls.
But I would recommend that you purchase the All area pass so that you can go further to Akechidaira ropeway and from there, you can see the whole Chuzenji Lake and Kegon falls from above. It is really a gorgeous sight. On the way there, you may like to stop at Ryuzu falls, a small waterfall which has a quaint and lovely cafe.

I managed to see all those in one day.
