This November we are going to Japan for the first time. We already discovered that we need more time so this will be the first but not last visit.
First a bit of introduction:
I'm Yvet and 38 years old and married to Emiel (48) we live in Delft the Netherlands.
We both are complete Disney geeks and have visited the US many many times at both Disney parks and also traveled around the US quite a lot. We also visited New Zealand, Australia and big parts of Europe.
Because we are huge Disney fans we decided to go on a trip to Japan.
Our goal is to visit all the Disney parks in the world, so in the future there will be trips to Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Of course we want to see Japan also and not only experience Disney.
Our travel schedule:
November 13th Travel from Amsterdam to NRT with Aeroflot.
November 14th Arrive at NRT 11.40am, stay in Tokyo (Asakusa) see Ueno park and Senjii Temple and walk around Asakusa.
November 15th Day in Tokyo, overnight Disney
November 16th Tokyo Disneyland, overnight Disney
November 17th Tokyo Disney Sea, overnight Disney
November 18th Tokyo Disneyland / Disney Sea, overnight Disney
November 19th Tokyo Disneyland / Disney Sea, overnight Disney
November 20th Day in Tokyo, overnight Tameikesanno
November 21st Daytrip to Nikko, overnight Tameikesanno
November 22nd Daytrip to Kamakura, overnight Tameikesanno
November 23rd Travel to Kyoto, overnight Higashiyama
November 24th Day in Kyoto, overnight Higashiyama
November 25th Daytrip to Nara, overnight Higashiyama
November 26th Daytrip to Hiroshima, overnight Higashiyama
November 27th Daytrip Osaka, overnight Higashiyama
November 28th Day in Kyoto, overnight Higashiyama
November 29th Stay Himeji Castle, overnight Narita Airport
November 30th Fly back home 13.10pm NRT - AMS
Normally when we travel to Orlando we stay in a villa, any other trips we stay in luxury hotels. This time we try something else, we have rented apartments thru Airbnb and we are staying at a Machiya.
In Tokyo we have the first night an apartment close to Asakusa Station. then we travel to Disney where we want to stay at the Hilton Tokyo Bay. after Disney we go back to Tokyo and stay in an apartment close to Tameikesanno station. Next we travel to Kyoto where we stay at Sakara Kyoto.
The last night we want to stay close to NRT airport and are looking into staying at Radisson Hotel Narita.
We are going to get a Japan Rail Pass.
1 I think it's best / cheapest to get a 7 day pass starting the 23rd and have the trips Tokyo-Kyoto, Kyoto-Nara, Kyoto-Hiroshima, Kyoto- Osaka, Kyoto- Hineji-Narita included. And pay for the trips Tokyo-Disney, Disney-Tokyo, Day trip Nikko and day trip Kamakura out of pocket. Am I correct?
2 To reserve seats, do we have to wait till the day the pass starts (the 23rd) or can we do this when we exchange the voucher?
3 Is it best to exchange the voucher at the airport or is it more convenient to do it elsewhere?
Of course I have a bunch of other questions:
4 What do you think of our schedule?
5 Do any of you have suggestions about the hotel at Disney and at Narita?
6 What are your suggestions for must sees, not to miss, things to do in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka?
7 Would it be allowed to bring your own slippers to Temples (castle)?
8 Tipping is a no go, but can we bring like Delft Blue Porcelain wooden shoes as thank you gifts?
9 Do you have any tips for me?
And lots more but they come later
Sorry that the first post became so long with lots of questions.
Thanks in advance for all your help, tips and suggestions.
