Stay there b4... yes the station is just a stone throw away... but the room is very small... abt 16-9sqm...

if u got budget... can go for Southern Tower across the street... the room is much bigger... for abt $50-100 more... abt 25-30sqm... and Takashimaya is just across the linkway... less than 3mins walk...
Southern tower? I'm looking at agoda's, how to indicate southern tower?

It is called Century Southern Tower Hotel...

I booked directly from the website... coz those apps like expedia and agoda always shows sold out... but their website still available...

How are you going to Ningle Terrace? I donít see any direct transportation heading there. Youíll need to take a taxi from Furano station. Youíll also need to make sure you leave Asahiyama Zoo on time to catch the train to Furano.

First time directly with Toyota... Iíve rented cars from different car rentals in Japan... so far all provided me with relatively new cars with good condition... should be less than 2-3 yrs...

my thread is as follows : https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/j...s-5942223.html

Hi all

next year march 16 -24th my gf and me would be heading to Japan for our getaway trip

i intend to bring her to Hakone as we have yet to go hakone tgt and i am intending to propose to her


As such i wanted to book a ryokan.. but dont really have an idea which ryokan is good :/

my budget is around 500-600ish for 2D1N. is it too low or high?

what is the recommended range you guys think i should book a ryokan at? :x


Do you guys have any recommendation that i can look at?

and also would like to check are there any florist nearby there?


do you guys think that is a good idea to propose at the Hakone Shrine? will there be a lot ppl if we go before sunset or early in the morning? haha

and do you guys have any links that i can hire a photographer for tat day?


Thanks all hope to hear from you guys soon!
