    Hanggang 5 years old lang ang free.

    6-11 have special child card, which is 50% of the adult fare.

    12 & above is full fare already.

    Hi guys! Kaya ba mag fuji q and gotemba outlet in one day? Thank you! 
    Kaya po. kung magbook kayo ng tour bus usually kasama yang dalawa sa itinerary. kung may service/private card kayo mas better. iisang way lang naman sila if galing kang tokyo.

    Patulong naman po sa transpo namin. 2 adults 1 child 9yr old.  We are arriving at Narita and ang Airbnb namin ay nasa Funabashi. I saw according dito sa site na dapat Kensei Railway? Ang estimated train rides lang po namin ay:
    Narita to Funabashi and vice versa
    Funabashi to Shinjuku and vice versa
    Funabashi to Maihama and vice versa

    Meron bang ticket na mura na mabibili? 4 days lang po kame. Inde ko alam anong ticket ba bibilin or lahat single ride lang? 

    Thank you po!

    I would actually just purchase an IC card (PASMO or SUICA) and load it with cash para you don't have to worry about buying tickets every time you go on a train/subway ride.

    plus one sa suica since mode of transpo sa japan eh bus/trains better na magtop up ka lang ng tingin mo gagastusin nyo. yung unused credits pwede magamit sa convenience store and some fast food restau

    agree with them... we also used suica when we went to tokyo. we also used the card to buy foods sa family mart & vendo...

    Yup. If you know how to use an octopus card (o kahit yung Beep card natin dito hahaha), you won't have trouble using a PASMO or SUICA card.

    yes same siya ng octopus card. ang nakakalito lang kasi sa japan, ang daming IC cards. ;)

    You can go to Legoland Japan if you want.

    If you like cars, Nagoya has a Toyota museum.

    I just have a question regarding your point of entry. Why fly MNL - NGO - MNL when you're going to spend the majority of your time in the Kansai (Osaka) region? MNL - KIX - MNL makes sense, unless super mahal ng route na yan.

    Sale kasi namin nakuha yung flight - 5k for the entire province-MNL-NGO-MNL-province (2pax).

    Plano ko nga sana mag-Nagoya nalang and nearby cities since I've been to Osaka and Kyoto na last time, kaso first time kasi nung kasama ko. So mas ok na ma-experience nya muna yung common places of interest.

    Okay then. 

    Well, the itinerary's okay. To reiterate, for day 5:

    You can go to Legoland Japan if you want. 

    If you like cars, Nagoya has a Toyota museum.

    Pareho tayo ng point of entry, september 27 naman kami and seat sale lang din. halos same din tayo ng pupuntahan, difference lang is mag-legoland na kami on the 28th since request ni bunso. we'll visit oasis 21 at mag-iikot na lang within sakae since malapit sa airbnb namin pagdating tapos mag-nagoya castle before legoland. also, exit namin is Osaka since we really planned to visit again osaka. We've got our 1-way ticket to nagoya for 9K for 4 and upon checking, yung shinkansen from nagoya to kyoto will cost us the same amount. For 3 persons pa yan since free pa si bunso. we need to use shinkansen para maaga kami makarating sa kyoto, dapat konti pa ang tao pag-picture.

    with regards to osaka amazing pass, check mo kung maco-cover ba nya yung mga gusto niyong puntahan. that's what i also planned pero nung chineck ko, di naman kasama yung mga attractions na gusto ko dun sa pass, so di sya worth it para sa itinerary namin.

    I am now equally addicted to Hong Kong and Japan! Hahaha

    Was able to snag from a seat sale the other day and will be returning to Tokyo next year. Stayed at Hamamatsutcho this year and now looking into Asakusa or Ginza. Has anyone tried staying at Hotel Gracery on any of both locations? Noticed that hotels in Shinjuku are a bit on the highside, again will be travelling with my wife and 3 year old daughter.

    for 1 day side trip thinking of Yokohama or Kamakura. Was not so lucky with our Fuji Trip this year - zero visibility, no ropeway and heavy rains.
