  • If you want to go by Shinkansen, the cheapest one is the Kodama. You need to reserve a seat at least one day before and it will cost 10,300 Yen. The cheapest way between from Osaka to Tokyo might be by highway bus. It will take some hours, but the prices start from around 3,100 Yen one-way. Both daytime and nighttime are available.

    I think to get the 10,300 fare for the Kodama Shinkansen you need to use the Platt Kodama ticket which it looks like you need to buy from a JR Tokai Tours office. There's info in English about that here (http://www.jrtours.co.jp/kodama/en/). If you just buy a regular ticket it will be over 13,620 yen. If you go by regular trains it will take you hours and the price will still be about the same as the (Platt) Kodama.

    What date are you going? And how many of are you are going? Last year they had their special Seishun 18 offer in March. It was an amazingly good value ticket for 5 rides. One person could use the tickets 5 times during the allocated period, or 5 people could use one ticket each iykwim. This explains it better: https://www.jreast.co.jp/e/pass/seishun18.html It shows info for summer and winter, but there was one in March too. If you are going in March or after they may have something like this again this year.

    For an overview of transport options and their costs from Tokyo to Osaka, maybe an earlier post on City-Cost can help ... https://www.city-cost.com/blogs/City-Cost/GW4ew

Best products for dealing with ants?

Fellow City-Costers - I need your help! Living out in the countryside has its perks but spring has seen a bunch of ants wanting to take up residence in our house! What are your favorite products to keep the ants at bay? The less strong (but still efficient!) the products are, the better, since I've got 2 little ones and a pup to consider. Thank you!

Bus commuter pass?

I see people with a bus commuter pass and I'm wondering if there's any information online about this? (I can find a lot of information about the train tekken commuter passes.) I want to see the prices and if it's worth it for me to buy one. If it matters, I'm looking for Yokohama area ones... Keikyu bus or Kanachu bus. (or is there one for all companies?)

Lipstick Recommendation

I am Not a makeup girl. I like chapstick, maybe one with a little color in it. That's about it. I'm a natural type and would probably get lipstick onto clothes / cups so I've just avoided using it. I've been checking out the lipstick (and tinted chapsticks) sold in drugstores (usually under/around the 1000 yen price range) but don't know anything about make up. I want to get one pink (not too bright) light feeling lipstick. Any ideas? Are they all sort of the same at that price range? Local is better, but I noticed Shiseido's are over 2000 yen each. Is it worth it? Cruelty free gets bonus points.

Japanese Men psychology for dummies

So, I have a question to ask. Maybe a guy can answer better... Anyway, all help is very much welcome. Do Japanese men answer to texting when we (women) write melo./ cheesy texts? I'm kind of straight forward and I say things as I feel them but, my boyfriend, he doesn't answer it, he puts very pragmatic answers and it's kind of like he's avoiding them, like making a detour around it. He used to reply at first, he was never cheesy, just sweet. Then... no more!!! I wonder if I said or did something wrong. He says no. But I'm starting to doubt it! Like a 6th sense! What do you think?
