Cheapest train

Need to know what is the cheapest train from Shin Osaka to tokyp

5 Answers



  • 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

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.

Cheap galleries in Kanto for an exhibition?

Anyone in the art community know of somewhere to exhibit art for cheap (or free)? I'm looking to host a short-term photo show. I'm looking for a very small space (even just a wall is fine) for around 10,000 a day (or less, obviously). Thanks!
