    Hato Tours

    by machomikemd Written Nov 14, 2009

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: the number one tour company in the tokyo area, the hato bus company is an icon itself in the tokyo area hence i've made a separate things to do tip for hato bus tours here in my tokyo pages. Whether you are looking for the time-honored standbys—shrines, temples and Japanese gardens—or the more fashionable and trendy hot spots, Hato Bus Sightseeing Tours have exactly what you want! Hato Bus Tours have wonderfully diverse courses combining a little of everything, from traditional Japanese food to excellent shopping, even picturesque cruising, to ensure that you end the day replete with the charms of Tokyo! they offer tours with highly capable English-speaking tour guides as well as tours in Chinese, Korean and Spanish via their audio-guide system, the Tour Tracer (you must pay 500 yen for use of the audio tracer).

    Fondest memory: their website is: www.hatobus.com/

    Get a Japanese-English metromap, otherwise...

    by jeoren Updated Dec 20, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Get a Japanese-English metromap as soon as you can. Otherwise you will be lost!
    It differs every metrostation wether the maps are also in English or not. For that reason you should always carry a English-Japanese metromap with you.

    In the famous Forumbuilding near Tokyo station...

    ( http://www.t-i-forum.co.jp/english/shop/index.html )

    ...there is an informationstand in the middle which can give you such a map. In the metrostations themselves you only see English OR Japanesemetromaps. This informationstand also offers a guide how to use the metrosystem. Really; just on the 7th day of my stay in Tokyo I discovered how to change trains without paying extra.

    Ways to Navigate in Tokyo

    by willy55 Written Oct 1, 2006

    Favorite thing: Trains service in tokyo can be very complicated, so any trip around or out of the city has to be planned beforehand to avoid be lost or wasting of time. Examples going to fuji san, hakone, nikko from tokyo. Best way is to trace the train route to the locations and from the locations get a map from the tourist information center.

  • Wear nice clothes in Japan

    by Kai_desu Updated Aug 17, 2006

    Favorite thing: Stay cool, hip and modern. You don't want to look like a plain tourist or a backpacker in Japan. You'll feel out of place and cannot enjoy your trip. Dress well and luxuriously and you'll be part of the community. Japanese dress well and expensively. You've been warned!

    When on an overnight stopover in Tokyo

    by bobinalong Updated Aug 2, 2005

    Favorite thing: We had an enforced stopover on our way back from Oz. We were exhausted and really just wanted to crash, and being that the airport hotel we were put up in by JAL was miles from the city centre, that was even more tempting...

    But - if you can possibly fit it in - GET OUT OF THE NASTY HOTEL and go see something - even if its a local shopping centre (as we did)!!!

    Japan, to us, seemed a really crazy place - a real culture shock - and that taste was enough to tell me I'd like to go back and see more...

    Fondest memory: Best memory was the all over multi function auto body massage chair we spent more time testing than the shop assistant clearly felt was necessary!!!

    Just what you need after a flight from brisbane...
