Oh and bring comfortable footwear. The kind of footwear that you can use all day! And bring salonpas. Its much cheaper here. You'll be needing it because you'll be walking a looooot.

Don't forget to visit DonQui or Don Quixote for the pasalubongs and such. Sometimes, I buy my dinner here since its way cheaper and the taste isn't that bad. Ifs actually delish.

You need the wifi! When I traveled alone, I purchased one pocket wifi from the airport and used the complimentary pocket wifi too.

If you've been to New York or France, Japan railway stations are easy peazy. But you have the wifi to get around anyway! Another challenge is the language barrier. No matter how lost you are, they can really just speak minimal english so you have to make do with Google.

 

that's great... I've been to France and am a New Yorker (just vacationing in October to visit friends and former GF) so i guess the subway system will be easy as you said

 

thank you for all the info and it is truly helpful

 

enjoy your day

Ok ang train, nakakalito lang minsan sa sobrang dami...meron pang kada station hihinto, meron ding may nilalagpasang station. Kung mga 2weeks ka try mo ring pumunta sa osaka at kyoto para matry mo bullet train. Naalala ko dati nung nokia p phone ko, habang nakasakay sa shinkansen pipicturan ko mount fuji...pero dahil sa bilis ng train at bagal ng processing ng phone ko, yung building yung nakuhanan 😂 ok nga kung airbnb kasi sobrang mahal ng hotel... yung pocket wifi from airbnb halfday lang itinatagal samin..

going to Tokyo late October - saan ok and affordable mag stay?

nabasa ko sa Shinjuku ang best - totoo ba?

madali ba mag commute para mamasyal?

 

tips naman dyan...Salamat

 

most of the Air BnBs we've been to are pretty affordable naman and the hosts are very helpful.  

Shinjuku alone has a lot to offer already.  if you want a bustling area, this is a good start.  

limited English, but still very helpful … they will even bring you to the nearest train station you need to go to.

 

re commuting - pocket wifi/mifi will help a lot.  used google maps for both commuting  and walking directions.

one thing we learned, iPhone maps - actually tells you which platform to go or to exit when you use the train system.

so we alternate between the two apps.

 

Tanoshinde!

If you have 7 days. Consider buying a Japan Rail Pass (Exclusive to visitors and only available and sold outside of Japan)

 "https://www.japan-rail-pass.com/jr-pass"  (Buy it online or from a Japan Airlines Ticketing office or affiliated travel & tours. 

Gives you unlimited access to all trains including shinkansen (up to express  but not the super express).

 

Use the JR website for very accurate and highly efficient trip planning from all points in Tokyo to anywhere in Japan.

 

a. The convenience and cost of round trip Narita Express from Tokyo Central to Narita Airport alone is worth it.

b. Take a day trip to Mt Fuji - There's a step by step train/Shinkansen guide somewhere in shutterbugs thread. 

c. Take a day trip to Kyoto -  Old  world japan with temples/shrines and Geisha's

d. Take a day trip to Hiroshima - A different take on touring but will live a lasting impression guaranteed.  

e. Take a day trip to Osaka - For culinary experience (It's dubbed the Nation's Kitchen) and shopping. Osaka castle is also worth visiting.

e. With the remaining days. Go around Tokyo and the other cities within and around Tokyo. (Shibuya, Ginza, Marunouchi, Roppongi, Akihabara, Harajuko, etc).  

 

Cheers!

madami dng forums akong sinalihan na guides para sa mga gaijin regarding soapland, pinsaro (pink salon) or escort. kailngan mo lng mag sunog ng Lapad Lapad tlg.

sa Osaka,kng escorts gsto mo, madaming street hookers or bars jan s Namba Area. kng iba mga establishment naman search k sa net. meron dn BDSM club jan s osaka.

sa Kobe naman search mo nlng sa map yung FUKUHARA.

happy trails bro

JR pass would really make the trip more easier but other train line you stil have to buy tickets. but if you are going to japan better sure to save some money because japan is really expensive place.

Tried 2 soaplands too. haha iba kapag gusto maka tikim ng hapon. haha

For me spring or autumn ok...spring to see the cherry blossom/sakura or autumn para makita yung pagpapalit ng kulay ng dahon. Parehong magandang magpapicture..kahit winter ok lang rin, mas bulky nga lang luggage papunta dahil sa winter clothes. Tried summer once sa Fukuoka. Suggestion ko wag kayong pumunta pag summer sa Japan. Mas mainit pa keysa Pinas.

— yup I make it a point if il travel as Tourist ay malamig weather kundi parang Pilipinas lang. Pero no choice ako pag Singapore kasi lagi mainit at paborito ko din Singapore kasi.
