Cheapest train

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

  • 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

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.
