Nagoya has the new Legoland so might be worth a night stop there on the way to Nagano? You're heading to Shirakawa also?

Narita to Shinjuku Sanchome

Hi. I would like to get from Narita Airport to Shinjuku Sanchome (accommodation) on a weekday. My flight arrives around 2.20pm.

I initially wanted to take the Narita Sky Access from NRT to Higashi-Nihombashi, then change to the Shinjuku Line on Bakuro Yokoyama to Shinjuku-Sanchome. I think it was less than 2k yen. But when I checked the timetable of weekday, The only train that goes on the route towards Haneda Airport and stopping at Higashi-Nihombashi is 1524hrs. Assuming I canít make it for that one, how else should I go?

The next train that ends at Misakiguchi departs at 1604hrs. would it also get me to Higashi-Nihombashi?

I usually recommend bus limousine instead. It stops at Shinjuku bus terminal which is very central and can reach Shinjuku sanchome station in about 5-8mins walk.

Saw the photo in your link; The light-up scene is magnificent! Too bad I'll only be there a month later (Dec)..

Thanks for sharing the train stops! So Kobe is along the way.. ya could jolly spend the afternoon there.. no idea what to do there except perhaps to try the world famous Kobe beef (provided it won't break my bank haha), so really appreciate your suggestions!

BTW I read that 有马 onsen is worth going, and it's located in Kobe also? Do you think we can also go there while at Kobe? I feel that it'll be a waste going all the way to Japan (in winter!) without trying out their onsen. Since you are famiilar with Kyoto, other than 有马, is that any onsen we can try out in Kyoto (if there's any)? TIA!
Hi there are different grades of kobe beefs so no worries. Yeah you can go
有馬温泉but via train is a bit ma fan as you need to change 3 to 4 trains.

You can take bus too though. We drove there last time. There are 2 famous type of onsen. Gold and silver onsen. I will not say much for you to try and feel haha. Gold is the soil colour like and silver is the transparent one.
The bus link is below.

If you really like onsen, theres another one in 城崎温泉。i bought a pass that allows me to go different onsen house within a day. However its a bit far though. If you are intrested let me know. I can put the link.
Cheers!

Just fyi since you like onsen. i just went to 指宿温泉in 鹿児島。the sand onsen is amazing!
I strongly recommend. One of the best of all the different onsen that I been too!

i see, i only worry about how hot the weather can be in aug and scare typhoon strike
For Tokyo, I went first two weeks of August which coincided with the Obon period. In fact I stayed at Disney Resort area for 4D and before that, we were at Odaiba to be close to Tokyo Bay Fireworks Festival. Very hot. Everyday above 35įC. Still alright. Equipped with umbrella, water, face towel, and extra clothes. We did eat more ice cream and chilled desserts though.

The best I got was 2k for 2A1C last time but the other way round, land in KIX, depart HND. Now is the best time to buy as you know.

Wow, you're lucky. Are you teaching there? Is Nagano weather similar to Hokkaido in Jun-Jul?
