Should be 2. From Osaka to Tokyo, u can take Peach airlines (Peach). Cheaper than Shinkansen.

1 and 2 will probably cost the same.

between 3 and 4, it will depend on airline promotion. usually flight to osaka is slightly cheaper.

and between 1/2 and 3 or 4, it depends whether u can get cheap open jaw tickets. coz most of the time, airfare promotion doesnt allow open jaw. the extra amount u pay for open jaw tickets may be more than the amount u save on having 1 less shinkansen trip.

or go with dimitri's suggestion and go with domestic airline instead of shinkansen between osaka and tokyo. 1 way or 2 way depend again on whether u can get cheap open jaw ticket

Wanglai: yes. U can use it on Narita express. For return trip, it really depends where u are going there from? From Shinjuku or..?

check it out on hyperdia...

Thanks alot bro for the reply. I try using the hyperdia and below is a sample of the journey from Shinjuku(JR) to Haneda Airport.

10:37begin SHINJUKU(JR)
[ Departure track No.8 ]
[13 Min] through JR Chuo Line Rapid Service

10:50
10:53 transfer TOKYO
[ Arrival track No.2 ]

[4 Min] through JR Keihin-Tohoku/Negishi Line Rapid

10:57
11:04 transfer HAMAMATSUCHO

[15 Min] through Tokyo Monorail Rapid

11:19 end HANEDA AIRPORT INTERNATIONAL BUILDING

1st question: Just to check whether the procedure is correct. Based on the schedule, I am suppose to take train at track no. 8 using JR Chuo Line Rapid Service, which take about 13 mins to reach tokyo station at track no. 2. After that I need to transfer to JR Keihin-Tohoku/Negishi Line Rapid which take 4mins to reach HAMAMATSUCHO, follow by last transfer to Haneda airport international building, through tokyo monorail rapid which take about 15min?
2nd question: Can I say if in tokyo station, the timing i had available to board the next transfer is only 3mins (10:50 to 10:53) If I cant find/reach the transfer in time, do I need to research everything again?
Sorry for so many question as this is the first time i going japan. Thanks in advance. Cheers!!!

Answer to 1st question: Correct.
Answer to 2nd question: if unsure, just check hyperdia again or ask the station staff. =)

The aim is to reach Hamamatsucho for the Monorail. From Hyperdia you can see many options given to you. And it changes as you change the timing. If you are late and missed the one highlighted, you can just wait for the next one. But you don't have this kind of flexibility when you have reserved seats trains where you must board a certain train that you have the seats reserved. But for your case, you don't have this problem.

cheaper by how much? its 12k yen for peach.

so fly from sg to osaka, then change to peach?

i dont plan to spend too long in tokyo this time. just wanna go hakone/fuji kyu highland, etc.

this trip is mostly osaka

yes, of coz
unlike full-fledge airlines, budget carriers dun penalise u for buying 1-way tickets. so u can just fly osaka to tokyo on peach, and return by shinkansen (or the other way around)

Hi guys, will like to check whether is it usual practise that I leave my main luggage at the reception in hotel while I proceed to go other place like Osaka for three days? By the way when I come back, I will still be using back the same hotel for the rest of my stay in tokyo. Please kindly advise. Thanks

i suggest u email the hotel to ask if it is ok. coz some small hotels may not have space to keep ur luggage for so long.

usually 1 night is okay, and i have done it before in toyoko-inn and other business hotel. havent tried for multiple days

Just checked ANA and realised it cost around $963 per pax to Tokyo.
While SQ cost $1033 per pax to Tokyo.
It appears SQ is more worthwhile with higher baggage allowance right?
Would appreciate if there is cheaper lobang to Tokyo though. Planning my Jun trip now. Hehe.
