Ur entire trip is by ana? If so, ana will ensure u can make it thru.
Maybe call ana to confirm with them on the luggage?

Not as many cars, except for city area.
Gps wun cockup one. But sometimes there are road closure and gps will not have tt info. That becomes a problem if u are in mountainous area and there are no alternatives routes, which is wat happened to me.
Good thing i brought a paper map and i used tt to find our way. Had to skirt around an entire mountain, detoured for 80+km

will they like "inform" the people that the particular road will have closure? eg via online etc? or its just depends on ur luck liao?

The only ones that will be problematic are those mountain passes or mountain roads, where the road is the only one through it.

eg) during winter, Shiretoko Pass to Rausu from Shari is closed for several months. There r notices in nearby Michi and also overhead signs signalling road closure leading up to the pass.

If concerned, go to nearby Michi No Eki, ask Info Counter or look for notices pinned up for major road closures, or ask your hotel.

Not all road closures may be known, but I wouldnt be too worried. I have met with a few in my trips but nothing major like evilerniex's.

You shld get wifi / data to have access to Google Map as a backup. Once u get on an alternative route, the car's GPS wld automatically re-calculate the route.

1hr quite tight, but not impossible.
The moment u get out of arrivals at HND, just turn right to check in for domestic.

Unless u need to get JR pass at HND, then it's an entirely different story.... :o

Osaka-Tokyo-Osaka

Hi, I'm planning a 10 day trip to Osaka end nov. Hubby would like to go to Tokyo's one piece tower so I am deliberating between paying more for open jaw tix or just go for a side trip from Osaka.

Any views?

Our first time to Osaka.

Thanks in advance!

How much more for arriving at KIX and departing from HND??

Add this one way shinkansen ticket into the calculation.. Hikari from Shin-Osaka to Tokyo -> ¥14,140 per pax.

Day trip from Osaka?? If not getting JRP(Which is around S$350/pax or more depending on exchange rate for 7D pass) then u would need to pay like at least ¥28,280/pax for Hikari return ticket to Tokyo and back..And 3hr journey per leg so 6hrs on the train just for a day trip.

So it is much better to arrive KIX and leave by HND if you need to go Tokyo..

my noob advice...

I'm planning a 15-day trip with a flight in to Kix and departure via Nrt.
Basically covering Osaka, Kyoto and nearby areas, then taking shinkansen to Tokyo. Was trying to figure out the cost effectiveness of buying JR pass; with the pass would likely venture further afield but probably rushed.
So I came across this discount fare between Shin Osaka / Kyoto to Tokyo by Platt Kodomo :
http://www.jrtours.co.jp/kodama/en/
apparently one can also buy from stations at Shin-Osaka/Kyoto :
http://jprail.com/travel-informatio...agoya-kyoto-and-shin-osaka-by-shinkansen.html
but must buy one day before travel and journey's 1 hr to 1-1/2 hr longer but you get to save $46-50 (would save quite a bit for family group)

How expensive is it to ship packages home from Japan? Is it as cheap as Korea? My friend tells me she go Lotte Supermarket and just ship her buys to Singapore not expensive no need to carry around. Wondering what kind of charges it would be for Japan. I have so little luggage allowance and so many things to hoot :s13:

You can refer to Japan Post website for rates. This is the rate schedule for shipping to Singapore

I'm asking more if there are special rates or deals that one can find, or people's personal experiences on what options worked best for them. I know and looked up Japan Post already.

Oh my friend who goes to Japan quite regularly rec me to just use Japan Post since the rates are quite reasonable to send 1 box of stuff.

Personally I max out my luggage entitlement. Next trip planning to take airport limousine instead of NEX so I don't need to drag all my stuff.
