after landing at the airport, has anyone gone to buy those snacks? can do so right?

i'm landing at HND and thinking of buying those hokkaido snacks so i can just pack in my luggage instead of buying when i'm departing KIX and gotta hand carry up the plane. just buying a few boxes (haha hopefully), so i'm ok to lug the snacks around throughout my trip. will of course pick those that are less breakable and won't expire before i return home.

Hello there!
Need expert advice~ I intend to take JAL from SIN to Osaka (Itami) and the flight ETA is 1955 hrs. As it will be night time, can i know if the airport limousine bus is the best method to get to the city and i saw that they only stop at a few locations in Umeda. Is there any hotel you would recommend? My concern is that it must be easy to locate as i am a female travelling alone.

Thank you and really apprecaite!

if u reach at 1955, probably can clear customs by 9+pm. still in time to train. train is cheaper, but will require a transfer from monorail:

Bus or train are fine. Do note that the immigration queue at Osaka is quite insane, I was stuck in customs for 4 hours last week and missed the last train .. end up taking the 24hr bus to Umeda.. quite easy to transfer to subway lines from there

Sorry, this may have been asked before. What is the fastest way to get from Haneda to Narita? I'll be landing in Haneda at night and catching the flight next day from Narita to Sapporo. Thanks.

Hi, thanks for sharing! Did you take flight from same timing as well? May i know which hotel did you stay at?
In terms of convenience is taking the bus easier than the train?

Thanks again!

shld be safe.
but so far I have not had the need to drink straight from tap coz the accom I stay in all have kettles to boil water, or water dispenser in the lobby. eateries all provide water or even tea or no problem when outside also

Not a lot of flights from Haneda to Sapporo. So I am thinking of taking Jetstar from Narita to Sapporo. Any recommendations for flights to Sapporo in Haneda?

There's ANA domestic flight departing from haneda to sapporo almost every hour and there's Skymark flying to sapporo as well. Haneda has more frequent flights to sapporo as opposed to narita.

Thanks. Let me check again. This will save me trouble to get to Narita.

Update:
Now I remember. I did check before on ANA flights. It is very expensive, $900 per person from haneda to/fro sapporo. It is more expensive than SG to/fro haneda. So I have to look for alternatives.

Mine was 10pm... By right its after peak, but the queue was still bad.. Even those who took the last flight in had to queue at least 1.5hours. I stayed at hana hostel Osaka BTW.

Bus or train ... It depends on where you're staying. Train can be cheaper if purchased as a package

Hi

May i know how do we travel from kiyomizudera to arashiyama ?

We'll be departing from nippombashi. If we start at morning 8.30, can we cover the two places in a day ? We hope to pop by nijo castle if possible.
