Hi all, as this is my 1st visit to Japan (29 Mar - 6 Apr 2013), would greatly appreciate for some advice based on my itineraries below:
29 Mar - Arrive in Kansai Airport ard 7am. Intend to take airport limousine to Namba station to drop our luggage at hotel (Hotel Vista Grande Osaka). Will visit Osaka castle and in the evening walk from shinsaibashi to namba.
30 Mar - visit to USJ
31 Mar - Travel to Tokyo via Shinkansen, hotel at Ginza area. Plan to walk ard Shinjuku and shibuya area and a visit to Meiji Shrine or Tokyo tower
1 and 2 Apr - visit to Disneyland and Disneysea (is it worth going for 2 theme park spread over 2 days)
3 Apr - Travel to Kyoto, stay at Gion District. Walk ard Gion District
4 Apr - Arashiyama and Tenryu-ji
5 Apr - Nara or Fushimi Inari Shrine
6 Apr - Flight back to sg at 17.25 from Kansai Airport
Please see if I do still have time for any other sightseeing in Kyoto or is there any other recommendation.
Is it advisable to purchase the JR pass based on my above itineraries and the activation date will be on 31 Mar? Is there any other pass I need to purchase for my travel within the cities?
Thank you so much!!!
