You can always try. :D
You’re welcome! You’re going to have a great time.
Don't forget to claim your 600 EUR compensation since you're in Europe:Buuh am suppose to fly to Narita right now but our first flight had one hour delay and now we can only fly tomorrow from Viena :( sucks to lose one day when we are only 9 days there (or 8 now) also have to change Hostels and hotels now uuhh, I need my lawson sandwich
Yeah I got all three of us official letters which confirm that it was the airlines fault so that is one good thing which makes the situation better. Thanks Mike :)Don't forget to claim your 600 EUR compensation since you're in Europe:
If you live in the EU and have a long distance flight and arrive a few hours late then you can get 600 Euros back yeah. Which is great because now my flight is almost free when everything works out.
Probably more fitting for this thread:Hello, I'm going to Japan around this september to end january as a student and planning to book a dorm there (near the Waseda University), has someone already did something like this here ? I searched a little bit but there are so many things that I don't understand (like this http://prntscr.com/nnafsn what's the entrance fee, what's the difference with the dorm fee...), so if anyone has advice on it I would be glad to hear it, thanks !
Lol wrong thread again, sorry about that, anyway thanks !Probably more fitting for this thread:
Yes. Never had any problems like yours :P
Maybe try to check this little book. It (the German version) was a tremendous help for us to discover some not so well known places. Of course there's some duds and like a quarter of it are still on the more touristy side, but it's a neat little companion (and you get a few more tipps in the directions to each of these sights, like if there's some important temple on the way).Howdy ya'll, I was hoping to get some recommendations for off-the-beaten-path type stuff to do in Tokyo? My SO and I have done most of the big touristy things in Tokyo and are looking for things you wouldn't necessarily find on "Top things to do in Tokyo!" type lists.
Any little unique experiences/sights/stores/restaurants that you would recommend? Any help would be hugely appreciated.
A special six-car Mickey Mouse-themed shinkansen bullet train has begun serving southwestern Japan's Kyushu region, with images of the beloved character splashed across its yellow livery and interiors.
Festooned with various images of the iconic Walt Disney Co. character, the train is scheduled to run between Hakata Station in Fukuoka and Kagoshima-Chuo Station until late November.
Limited-edition Mickey Mouse shinkansen souvenirs, such as notebooks, pins, and key rings, are available aboard.
Passengers can check https://www.jrkyushu-wakuwaku.jp for schedules and other details.
The number of foreign visitors to Japan in April rose 0.9 percent from a year earlier to 2,926,700, marking a record high for any month, government data showed Tuesday.
The increase was partly due to European, American and Australian tourists who took advantage of the Easter vacation, which started in April this year, as well as the result of effective promotion of the country’s cherry blossoms by the tourism industry, explained the Japan Tourism Agency.
But growth in the number of Asian visitors was dented by concerns over the surging cost of airplane tickets and over congestion in tourist spots by domestic travelers caused by the 10-day Golden Week vacation beginning in late April.
I’d say 3-4 days at the start in Tokyo and 3-4 days at the end for Tokyo. Then you only need the 1 week JR pass. JR pass for one solid week in Tokyo is a huge waste of money.Hey guys, trying to plan a 14 day itinerary from Tokyo and then returning back to Tokyo ( I will also be spending a week in Tokyo) using the 14 day JR pass. Also I'll be going in the summer.
My rough idea is to do the following in this order:
Tokyo - 7 nights
Mt Fuji - Kawaguchiko (and/or Hakone???) - 2 nights?
Kyoto - 3 nights?
Osaka - 2 nights?
Hiroshima - 2 nights?
Miyajima - 1 night?
Kanazawa - 2 nights?
Takayama - 2 nights?
Tokyo - 1 night
How does this look? Is the 14 day JR pass likely to pay off?
Are there any obvious places along this route that I'm missing?
Likewise are there any places on this list that are not too essential that I could skip?
I would prefer not to spend too long in each place as I'm travelling solo and don't want to get bored. But neither do I want to feel too rushed either.
Good luck with that :P
They're spending 14-ish days outside of Tokyo and 7 in Tokyo :P
