Have a question about skiing. A part of me really wants to go skiing in Japan but i am hesitant because i don't know if they will have shoes in my size. Anyone know the biggest size the resorts will supply? I fit a US 13-14.
You can email Gala Yuzawa as the place is very tourist friendly. They should have 13-14 size as a good number of skiers are foreigners.

not to skii.. to play this only
Ok, this one no need training to level up lol

It depends on where u are planning to go in Tohoku.
U may want to take a train to the first city u are visiting, then rent car from there. Or u can rent from Narita Airport and drive up, visiting some places in ibaraki first before reaching Tohoku.

From my experience, in-car GPS is a lot more accurate than Google maps. So u can just use the in-car one. Google maps is fine too
oh yes evilerniex bro, do you have any car rental company to recommend?

Just a quick question on Asakusa, i noticed on google map and on Suica map that there are 2 Asakusa stations. But one is on Ginza line whereas the other is connected to Ginza & Asakusa line. Best part is Sensoji temple is in between them. lol.

Namikase street seems to be on the bottom right station rather than the top left one.

what is the question ah?
most ppl go via the bottom right one coz they want to pass thru namikase street before going to sensoji.
however, it also depends on where u are coming from. the top one is on the tsukuba line while the bottom right one is on ginza line. so see which line more convenient for u

The one near Don Quijote has only 1 line- the Tsukuba line.

The Asakusa station near the river (lower left hand corner) has 3 lines- Ginza, Toei and Tobu.
This is the station to get to Nikko and is where the Tobu tourist centre is located.


Both stations are about 500m apart.
