    Default Trip to Japan

    Hi guys,

    I finally booked myself a holiday in Japan. It will also be my first time overseas! I'm going in February. Starting in Sapporo for the snow festival, then on to Tokyo and Kyoto. My itinerary is getting pretty full already, but I'd love to hear from anyone who's been. What are some 'must-see's' and any tips/advice would be awesome :-)

    Any advice for any long plane flight anywhere. Eat an extremely light meal, like one bagel or a half bowl of cereal, at least 12 hours before the flight takes off. You may drink liquids until then, but no solid food. You may eat normally on the plane.

    This helps avoid jet lag, and it helps to avoid sitting down in those small rest rooms which get pretty disgusting over a long flight. That is if you are a guy, it helps with the rest rooms. Girls, sorry.

    Woo, that's great! Are you getting a rail pass for the trip? I've been to most of Japan, though not as far north as Sapporo, but Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and everything there I can happily make suggestions about!

    Red face Re: Trip to Japan

    I hope you have fun! Might I add another tip?

    When you reach a certain altitude in the air, you might want to reach for something to chew on. Like anything: snacks, gum, whatever. Your ears will be popping, and it's going to be annoying. I guess it's the chewing that relieves all the pressure inside your ear drum. Or not I dunno, I'm no doctor psshh.

    And with that, safe travels in February!~

    I will definitely purchase a rail pass before I leave. And I plan to visit Osaka and Nara during my 5 night stay on Kyoto :-)

    Sapporo is where I was raised at, although I don't have much memory of snow there.

    It's a nice place nevertheless, have a blast~

    as kaitou ace mentioned, a rail pass would do you good. subways and trains in all the cities you're going to, and you save lots of money in comparison to taking taxis. have a great trip and enjoy

    I'm going during the spring @Jasanime so I don't have any solid tips but I do have most of my trip planned and just asking around and researching on my own!

    I have a lot of good food recommendations! Be sure to eat the street food and the food that each region is well known for!

    I'm getting the JR rail pass (but you can only get it from outside the country) and the Keihan Rail (for osaka/Kyoto/Shiga)

    I'm a weirdo and I know I get super tired so I planned days into my itinerary that we're literally doing nothing but staying in the hotel to relax. I know it's a once in a lifetime trip basically but I don't want to burn myself up.

    I too hate flying. I never wanted to fly again. But I gathered up the courage. Booked late-ish flights so hopefully I'll sleep!

    I look forward to you coming back and posting about your tips! (Be sure to take pictures and post them in art with the photography tag) -nudge- -nudge-

    @blueangel06661 How exciting! So when do you leave? How long are you going for? Food is a bit tricky for me. I'm vegan, so I'm staying in apartments with kitchens the whole time haha. Although there does seem to be a few vegan-friendly restaurants around Tokyo and Kyoto, so I hope to eat out at leat once or twice :-)
    Do you need a separate rail pace for Kyoto and Osaka? I'm not very experienced with public transport at all, let alone in a foreign country!
    I'm sure you'll manage the flight just fine. How long does it take for you to get there?

    I'm going the last 2 weeks of April!

    And the JR pass only works for JR lines (which is the most popular I think). If you haven't done it already open up google maps and just put in your destinations "Place A to Place B" and select the rail icon. It'll tell you which rail lines you'll likely be taking and the company using it. If it's JR you're good. I've noticed that the JR lines are less frequent around the Osaka area except for the bullet train mostly.
