Brief layover in Tokyo - What to do?

Posted by altmtl on 23/10/2013 at 07:21

On Dec. 2nd I arrive at Narita@14:30 & leave from Haneda @01:05 for my flight to BKK. What can I do besides wait at the airport during this time? I was considering using a big coin locker at Shinagawa Station as to not carry around my backpack. But I heard they were often full? Was also wondering if anyone wanted to meet up for sake and noodles in the short time I'd be there. All suggestions welcome - thanks ...

Apartment or Hotel in Tokyo - First visit to Japan

Posted by sunbell79 on 4/3/2014 at 22:50

We're headed to Japan next month and are seeking advice on accommodation. Our first three nights will be spent in Tokyo and we currently have an apartment and a hotel room booked in the Shinjuku area. The apartment is slightly less expensive, but we're concerned about wanting the help of hotel staff, given the fact that we don't speak Japanese. We're generally not the types to need help from a concierge, nor do we book with organized tours. We might want help booking a dining reservation, or wi ...

Do I need a return flight to enter Japan?

Posted by cybermutiny on 10/12/2013 at 09:18

I've heard mixed messages on this. I'm going to Japan on December 14th and plan to stay for most of the 90 maximum days allowed after entry. However, what I heard is an airline can stop you from boarding a plane bound for Japan if you don't have proof of a flight ticket out of the country. Or if not the airline, it is possible that Japanese security will ask for proof of an ongoing ticket upon arrival. The reason I wonder about this is because I would rather not have to choose the exact date t ...

Need ideas and inspiration

Posted by Remedy on 6/6/2013 at 07:20

Hi all, I usually try to take 6-7 weeks off every year to indulge my travel interest, and during this time I like to spend around 2 weeks in a country I haven't been before. This year I was planning on starting in Japan in the beginning of October before heading to the islands of The Philippines later on. As Japan is a total unknown to me I was hoping for ideas and inspiration from the good people on this forum. I will be travelling solo. Spending 3-4 days in Tokyo is mandatory just to experi ...
