Any recommendations on week and even month long accommodation in Tokyo Kyoto and Osaka?

Nishinari area in Osaka vdcfnic most sun plaza hotels are quite good. Newly renovated and like $500/mo

has anyone roadtripped around the country? what avg price should one expect per night on random guesthouses one find along the way?
eztfwu1mo
It depends how long you're staying. If you're staying 2m+ you can check tokyocityapartments. Shouldn't be difficult to find a small studio for that price.
kzympd1mo
thanks for this, the idea is minimum 2m ๐Ÿ™‚ love the "available now" "becoming available" filter hehe
towgvjgixdpvr1mo
tokyocityapartments is amazing

You could try OYO Life

ygjwubj I'm currently planning a road trip (well actually train trip) across the country, and the cheapest ones I can come up with are ~30 โ‚ฌ (shared hostel, no food)
rnagbav25d
Backpacker hostel toyo was great in nishinari. You can get your own (tiny) room for 150 yen and they offer discounts for a month stay. Excellent community feeling as well
hdsltzl25d
Sorry 1500 yen
licwbh24d
csqkoqjv awesome, thanks! is it easy to find such hostels? i.e as you'd when roadtripping europe or only in major cities?
wopyuas24d
zctbzwx I find many of them in small towns as well. I look at AirBnb which lists a lot of them, and I also google for โ€žtownname hostelโ€œ which often takes me to booking dot com . Also there are many official YHA hostels all over Japan, you can check their website, there is a map.
zjqira24d
great to hear that, looks like a perfect country to roadtrip ๐Ÿ™‚

itauumtdsnuvu22d
been thinking about staying there after watching this yearโ€™s terrace house season tbh
fbhsfarc21d
akqfcibyswhrey west Setagaya (station) or west Setagaya-ku (area)? Setagaya station is pretty cool, and there are a few things west of that but not a whole lot if my memory serves me correctly
esbqcsmliqyqy21d
It looks like hoodmaps is marking Kamiyoga/Sakurashinmachi station imgur.com/a/9pHxmiI
nlturfmp21d
ah thats one stop~ from Futakotamagawa, so I could see that potentially developing into a cool area. Haven't really explored too much past futako~. I used to live to the south-east of futako and it was cozy but not a whole lot going on
rqhccgdmr20d
Long shot, but is anyone going to be in Tokyo through Feb 25th? Iโ€™m still trying to get tickets to Perfumeโ€™s Tokyo Dome show and my usa credit cards keep getting rejected. I have a reservation for two tickets to be bought over the counter at Lawsonโ€™s and that reservation expires on Jan 4th. If someone is around and would let me reimburse you to pick them up in my name I think thatโ€™s the only way I can pull off getting tickets. Iโ€™m in Seoul at the moment and if I canโ€™t find someone I might get a one day round tripโ€ฆ
mooyqayw20d
how much is it? can you paypal me?
gzzrscni20d
irwmsicuujwsqs I went to the area around Yoga today, while it was a holiday there were still some people walking around. very dead feeling as far as cafes or restaurants, but wasn't necessarily looking too deeply. The park nearby was nice but also quiet
epncazzuh20d
Yup, can paypal you ahead of time no prob, plus tip ๐Ÿ™‚ Tickets were 8000 each plus fees and I got two.
cfqbuqol20d
can you email me the reservation details / instructions? shane at reustle dot org
laoltrpmu20d

fcsqfvdv20d
Cool, looks straight forward via the loppi machine. Will try it out tomorrow and let you know. If you want to send me the amount on paypal (same email) I can refund if it doesn't work out

hey guys! Coming to Japan in April for a couple weeks - hoping to catch Cherry Blossom. Would love any recommendations on neigborhoods to stay (will be working every weeknight) in Tokyo
itvygs13d
do you need to have a flight out of the country to enter Japan?
hlvimiegsggykdvg13d
mhjqgbz This depends on the airline you are flying in with, not Japan. Outbound tickets requirements are the airline, not the country, because if you get denied entry it is up to the airline to fly you somewhere else on their dime. You should always have onward travel as a precaution.
mkxjbsaimbusqaoh13d
If you are checking in and they ask for it, you can usually step to the side and quickly buy something and then show it to them. However, if you don't get it and you need it, you could find yourself getting blocked from the plane if you didn't check in at the desk. This has happened to me and it sucks so much.
icrphfkukpvntx13d
ujdykzg I had the same issue. Ended up buying a cheap ticket to Seoul with Peach that I have no intention of using. Peach allows tickets to be refunded
eltfmavjeqmmlcod13d
Expedia also allows 24 hour refunds for most flights as well.
elmrlb13d
So I guess I was asking if not having a flight or other means to abandon the country is a reason for getting denied at the border? I understand it may be a reason or not (luck) but if you get denied, you can simply try to buy a cheap one from the airport, try to go through border again and then ask for the money to be refunded in under 24h. Someone should make a list of all this travel hacks for nomads. Like the one about avoiding guys with scales in the airport xD
zyxppickszngarmm13d
I was just there but I think on the customs documentation on the way in you have to provide a time you are leaving and the flight number
twvrhg13d
Got it... it's always the case that you either want to stay longer or leave much earlier haha
yxscebpbhifhjubu13d
Yes you do have to have a way out
feahvdwglkmukdnw13d
azwunzh I would buy a refundable flight on Peach Airlines out to Seoul or something, should be able to get a refundable ticket for like $100
qwvandfuvrutzi12d
nreshbghzqjbt aah, damn. I would totally be up for bouldering but I only arrive in Tokyo on the 22nd of Jan ๐Ÿ˜ญ
ytnywaqbplzf12d
Will let you know if I find any standout gyms!
yslmjaybkniawm12d
B.Pump is ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘Œ
eihyfszrfwceoa12d
The Ogikubo branch is where all the World Cup athletes go and train
lrlavd12d
nzmnppgiwdwtxyzxe so the plan is to buy a flight in about 3 months in advance and then buy a refundable one out to seoul the night before (?)
zncttmjdsug12d
Iโ€™m down!
zkpepxxieuy12d
The US requires all flights be cancelable within 24 hrs so what I did when I arrived was buy a ticket to the US while waiting for the airplane to finish taxiing. Then I cancelled it when I was through customs. No one even asked me about it lol
laytibxoyulv11d
sduscixgqrvj am thinking of heading to b-pump in Akihabara tomorrow evening
hthjxwjjwlc11d
I canโ€™t go tomorrow evening but maybe during the day. Do you have LINE?

Hey all - thinking about spending a couple weeks in Japan in April - are there any coworking or coliving space around tokyo?

I remember hearing mid-length accomodations were hard to find
gbgntnsawwzrmrdj9d
myabdyyf I would recommend just doing a proper trip to Tokyo and not try to work there, especially if is only for a couple weeks.
tjiuyst9d
well the first 2 weeks will be just tourism with friends, second 2 weeks i wanted to get to know the tech scene a little more.

this will be my 3rd time in tokyo so not going to spend as much time on tourism
vstvssix9d
```Hey Pals,

Planning to go to japan around mid march and stay 2-3 months, first month i will be very touristy hopping around, last 2 months i would like to go to countryside of japan.
is there anyone has experience with living in countryside in japan ?```
evdvvbr9d
interested as well, was thinking of getting the JR pass and take off to the countryside.
mazihzvkqt7d
is it me being unlucky, or this feeling of foreigners hates is real in Kyoto?
wiqoeppu7d
yes and no. what happened
ozounheaim7d
friend was trying to figure out which umbrella was his at 7/11, jaanese lady came to put hers, and seeing my friend hesitatting, hit him with her elbow intentionally on y friend and watch him with really mean face, she walked inside the store with her umbrella.
ystrnmvrkg7d
also we were walking a bit on the street since the pedestrian way was narrow, 1 car uses the horn and I've seen an annoyed face inside
bugtwgugbxahcwja7d
lo
gnjdyyafrubhgvsx7d
lol
znbbphusgmxeahzm7d
i think that's just a bit paranoid
gmhlqvkmsaqrnsun7d
usually umbrella stands are outside
xlkrlzsugdbobnmz7d
if you're standing outside, and its raining, blocking access to the umbrella stand you should expect to be pushed out of the way
dzxmaahjqvusrflr7d
neither of those are foreigner hatred, i see japanese people do that to each other all the time
ljcfycmegrhioith7d
also if you're walking on the street instead of the sidewalk, i don't think a driver honking and "seeing an annoyed face" comes anywhere close to foreigner hatred
tssptwihqmvinl7d
Oy, booking a place to stay in Tokyo after months in SEA is painful money_with_wingsmoney_with_wingsmoney_with_wings
jxhbpsnmyuqeog7d
Iโ€™ve only gone to Tokyo before on a clientโ€™s dime.
arsuvunpxwrcarov7d
that said, people in Kyoto definitely get tired of tourists
lyqzzthumcrzrlvv7d
I live in a heavily visited area by tourists and its annoying as fuck
exetevngpvmzyyeu7d
You don't go to Tokyo if you like money.
uofmdgbaiejlcitg7d
I still think tokyo's expense is overstated
rxpxqltxwcqvwuwk7d
at least compared to places I'd go
iqeyqbayymfyotdg7d
(i.e. I'm not staying in a hostel in rural Vietnam)
liorssckonsqmp7d
The place weโ€™re renting in Hanoi would probably go for $250/night in Shibuya. Weโ€™re paying $45.
Some mental readjustment required to the standard of living we can afford while there. Oh, that and raiding all our credit card points.
ixfynjfvhiwutgzz6d
Ya the hotel we got was small but it was well optimized and clean.
