I will be arriving in Tokyo on the 29 April, I'm planning to visit Hakone on the 4th May (1 day only). Can I buy the Hakone 2 days freepass & romance car ticket when I arrive on the first day?

I will be going to Hakone Yumoto -> Gora -> Souzan -> Owakudani -> Togendai (to take pirate ship) -> Hakone Shrine -> Gotemba Premium Outlets -> Shinjuku.

To get to Hakone Shrine, do I get off at Moto-Hakone or Mochi-Hakone?
How do I get to Gotemba Premium Outlets from Hakone Shrine and back to Shinjuku?

ThankS! :s13:

Am considering taking 14 days Jr pass. But am wondering how to go Mt. Fuji from osaka.



if u are going lake kawaguchi, take to shinkansen to Mishima or Numazu, then take bus
http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e6905.html


do calculate the trips u are taking and see if the 14-day pass is worth it.
I got a feeling it is not worth it to get 14-day pass coz the Mt Fuji is not fully covered by the pass, and the remaining days are relatively cheap trips within Tokyo city.
u may want to consider shortening ur Kansai part by a day and leave for Mt Fuji on 24 Dec. that way, u can cover the entire Chubu and Kansai and get to Mt Fuji with the 7-day pass.
u can also head to Tokyo on 24 Dec then make the trip to Mt Fuji from Tokyo. there are passes that covers Tokyo to Lake Kawaguchi or Hakone

you can buy the free pass on the first day but only stations with odayku counters e.g. shinjuku will sell it. tell the person at the counter your start date for the pass i.e. 4th may.

http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e5206.html

hakone shrine is at moto-hakone. 2nd stop on the ferry ride. 1st stop is hakone-machi.

i think you need to switch buses to go to gotemba from hakone shrine. someone else can advise ba. http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e5213.html

To reach Gotemba, you need to change bus. I am not sure of the location but you can ask the bus driver for confirmation. The last time we changed bus it was in the middle of a village but the time schedule is very accurate. IIRC, the bus goes to Gotemba train station and from there you can take a free shuttle to the outlet.

Do you intend to stay overnight at a ryokan? Hakone has plenty of options but not around Gotemba area.

i want to go osaka, first timer, but been to tokyo 8 times already.
For osaka where is a nice place to stay? I will be there 4 days, but 2 days are taken up by potoshoots. For the other 2 days maybe i want to go to nara or the osaka aquarium. Not sure what other nice things there are in august. After that I'm going to tokyo. Either by overnight bus or train, so maybe some place near the bus or train stations heading there would be good.

u already have another thread asking about accom in Osaka, how come asking the same thing again here? will be easier to stick to ur thread so we know wat was discussed.
have u checked out the accom suggested in ur thread? Osaka/Umeda station will be a good place to stay for connectivity. Shinimamiya if u wan cheaper accom

Planning to go around Nov-Dec too. Airfare is around 1.9-2.1k for 3pax for SQ, ANA, and JAL. Is this considered ok?

Dear Evilnex,


Need help recommendation. I will flying to Haneda Airport n back. Straight from arrival will be proceeding to Haginaka via shuttle (Times car rental) to pick up my car and onwards to Nagano, Hirao - Aspens Shiga Inn for 2 days. After check out from Aspens Shiga, We will be going and staying in Tokyo for the rest of our trip.

Here i need your help - where to staying in tokyo? In shinjuku or shibuya? I will be travelling in a 7 pax family and are ok to split 2 rooms of 4 & 3 pax. Any hotel or ryokan to recommend? Affordable and preferably with local food joint around.

The reason i choose shinjuku or shibuya cos centralise of where i want to go eg. Akihabara, shibuya, shinjuku, meji temple, Diaba and Disneyland.

Thanks in advance.

I usually stay in Ueno area coz accom are cheaper there.
it is going to be hard to find 3 or 4 person rooms, so maybe u can split 3-2-2 instead?. or maybe can get apartment room using airbnb?
