  • 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

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
