toku-toku shinkansen tickets
Can anyone offer me advice on purchasing shinkansen kippu. We will arrive in osaka on 12th may and would like to catch the shinkansen down to fukuoka on tues 13th (we have use of a car when we get down to kyushu so we dont need a JR pass). I have found on the internet that there are discount shops all around Osaka selling toku toku tickets. Are these shops easy to find? Will i be safe in being able to purchase a ticket for the same day I want to travel (I will need 2 adult & 1 child ticket)? Or am i safer in paying full price and ordering over the internet before we leave? Do the shinkansens fill up quite quickly? We would like to catch either a 2or 3pm train down to hakata.
How do toku toku tickets vary from 2mai - kippu? Can I purchase 2mai kippu for my husband and i use to on the same leg of the journey together or are they only for return journeys?
Re: toku-toku shinkansen tickets
well I believe you need Sanyo Area pass. it give you the right to use sinkansen (type Nodzomi pluse local sinkansen from Osaka to Okajama, Hakata or Hirosima)
try this one - www.westjr.co.jp
U can see that there are 2 types of JR West Rail pass - Sanyo Area pass and Kansai Area pass
I can give you another pass links, just read about
Travel Tips for Osaka
FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD !
We took a train to Osaka and spend the idle time eating potato chips and taking mini bites at chocolates. Me and my friends cannot help but noticed that we ( filipinos ) are the only ones eating inside the train. The Japanese would glance at us every now and then, some with smirk on their faces. Too late for us to realize that it is not advisable to eat just about anywhere. Japanese people are so well mannered that when they want to eat, they have to go and look for a proper place where they can sit down where they can partake their food with gusto. Well, we Filipinos can eat just about anywhere. We are basically munchies ! We eat inside the malls while walking, in the theaters, in the car and in the funerals. Don't you notice ? We go to funerals ( especially the chinese funerals ) and you see an abundance of peanuts, chips, watermelon seeds , goldilocks cakes and so on. Some even have catered food with matching waiters to serve you ! Now i know why we have roaches everywhere.
A more pleasant place to shopping ;-)
Opened in October of 2003, this is without doubt the most pleasant place to shop in Osaka.
Namba Parks is a shopping centre which is airy, spacious and architecturally interesting with a deep canyon running through it and walkways connecting the two sides.
Best of all, it is stepped, and the steps have been planted out with pretty garden, giving Oska city centre some much needed greenery. There are numerous restaurants where you can sit outside and enjoy your meal surrounded by garden.
It is as pleasant to wander around Namba parks as it is to shop here. Namba Parks has a large range of shops for clothes, speciality foods, homewares, plants, toiletries.
Living away from England I was particularly pleased to see a Next store (a very popular clothes store back home) opening in the shopping centre.
That was our first day in Japan, after 9 hours flight, getting to our hotel and some afternoon sightseeing it was time for dinner and we stepped outside our hotel to stroll the city at night and find a place which we like. Well, that was not easy in a strange town and a bit of a first day culture shock. The city is also so big with hundreds of options and wide range of prices, we wanted to have local quality without being ripped off. Anyway, as experience travelers, the rule is always the same, where the local eat we should also eat and while strolling around we found this place, I think the street name was Yotsuhashi-suji and we took the little risk, stepped in and chose something from a menu we couldn't really read. However, it was excellent and most important, the beer was very good and cold :)
Central Public Hall
This was just been on our way and not that we were looking to check the Osaka Central Public Hall. But this beautiful architecture building catch my eye and my camera. This building was build in the early 20 century and was renovated few years ago in the early 2000.
