Any recommendations for Christmas illuminations in Tokyo? I've gone for the midtown illumination and will be going to Caretta Shiodome soon. Any others worth going?

I was travelling from Osaka to Hiroshima by JR pass, mistakenly gotten into Mizuho train.. What might happen? Do they check and ask me to pay full price for the shinkansen?

Thanks

JR kansai Hiroshima pass is valid on non-reserved seat on the mizuho. the 7-day all japan pass is not.
they may ask u to pay full fare or ask u to get off.

suggest u get off and take the sakura shinkansen which is more frequent and only slightly slower

Hi

Would like to ask if anyone knows whether it is possible to cancel flight ticket of one person, when the online booking is made for 2 person.
Airline: ANA

Tried to do this from website but the cancellation seems to be applied to the whole "booking reference" ie both tickets.

Thanks

i think u can call ANA to split the booking then cancel e ticket

HI,

1. Any idea if I can get data plan in the airport ? Also, can I use it when I move from Tokyo to kyoto?

2. Is the same subway card used in both Tokyo and kyoto? Or I need to return and refund in Tokyo before heading to kyoto?

1. You are referring to mobile plan, yea? if yes, then you can. There are also a lot of providers on this forum if you are looking for MIFI rental. If you are just looking for SIM card, you can buy them off Qoo10

2. If you are referring to PASMO, then you can use it in Kyoto as well.

You should be able to get at Haneda airport. If you are on M1, can activate M1 Data passport. =)
