if just tokyo only, either get the metro pass for just stick to store-value card such as SUICA

i see.. so the SUICA is similar to our ez-link cards?

hmm let's say for example a typical trip from Shibuya to Ueno, how much will it cost?

yup suica is like our ezlink. you can use hyperdia to calculate travelling fares. for shibuya to ueno will cost you 200 yen :s12:

u can refer to these


for narita to Tokyo, it depends on where u are staying in Tokyo. if u are staying in ueno or asakusa, then Keisei line will be more convenient. for Shinjuku, shinagawa etc, then narita express is good.

for Tokyo to Osaka, u can take the overnight willer bus if u want to save money. much cheaper than shinkansen, and u also save a night of accommodation. but if u cant sleep on such buses, then it is going to be tiring for u the next day.
shinkansen is the most convenient but is also the most expensive. about 14000yen

Thank you! We will be staying near asakusabashi, so I guess the keisei will be a better choice then?

Need opinion! going to japan, will be there for 10 days, flying in to haneda (tokyo) and departing from kansai (osaka) - the people that i am travelling with like super chill exploring/experiencing a city, so would tokyo + osaka be good enough, or tokyo + osaka + kyoto be better? also, should i get jr pass?

u dun need the JR pass since u are only travelling one-way from Tokyo to Osaka.
would recommend visiting Kyoto as well since it is only 30min by train from Osaka. will be a good break to sightsee cultural stuff instead of just city life in Tokyo and Osaka.

Hi Guys,

Anyone of you brought tripod during winter fest in Sapporo?
Concern will it be too crowded and too much to carry during winter fest night scene.

Planning to do live composite or long exposure.
Most likely will be bringing smaller setup over DSLR.
Torn.

is this worth it? since i'm only staying in Tokyo throughout the trip...

http://www.keisei.co.jp/keisei/tetudou/skyliner/us/value_ticket/subway.html

it depends on where u are staying and where u plan to visit.
if u are arriving at narita and staying in ueno or nippori area, then skyliner is the probably the quickest way to get there. metro pass will be good if the places u are visiting is accessible by metro train.

but there are also normal trains at a much lower cost from narita if u dun mind a longer ride
