Hi, we are going to Japan on the last week of December, but when we check the hotel/Ryokan that we are interested in, most were not available. Why is this so, is it the date not release for reservation or really being snap up fast?

Hi guys,

Anyone been to the Arakuyama Sengen Park? Other then climbing the 397 steps to the top of the park, the map I found on the internet show another alternate path to the park where you can see Mt Fuji next to the Chureito Pagoda.

I plan to go there with my folks. Can anybody confirm an alternate path to go up to the viewing point without climbing the steps or steep slope? My folks legs are not good.

TIA.

the alternative path u are referring to could be the vehicle road. but that road is closed to public and only meant for emergency vehicle i think

most accom in japan only opens 3-6mths in advance for booking. so i could be that u are too early.
u may want to try those 3rd party booking websites like agoda or booking.com to see if the ryokans are listed there.

Can I know if anyone verified and stayed successfully in an Airbnb rental since Minpaku law kicked in?

Will love to hear of your experience in verification with the Japanese host and confirming your accommodation.

is a one hour transit enough to catch the connecting flight? looking at a trip in mid-Aug but direct flights are quite expensive. no choice but to take 1 stop.

Hi, I went on my own solo trip to Kyushu last year too. In my opinion, 3 nights is already overkill in Kumamoto. And besides, the main attraction (Kumamoto Castle) is still under construction and won't be ready so soon, why not you explore other cities like Nagasaki or Kagoshima?
