Welcome aboard, Travel Mum and Melbourne 5.

I had really started to think that I was talking to myself over here!

I prefer to think of myself as an overa$$chiever...thank you very much!




(And to answer your question......yes, there are quite a number of threads that I don't follow.....I just have to find them first!)

I've been quietly hanging on every word as well. Although we're Canadians, not Aussies, and are just a couple, not a big family, I've been finding your posts really helpful in planning and researching our own upcoming visit.

Only 17 days to go until we leave for Tokyo!!

We now I'm laughing too bc I've tapped in to this thread while looking at airfares and dreaming and wondering if our family of 5 would stand out in Tokyo and here I find a bucket of Aussies hanging out here with families of 5.

Great travel plan I say. Hope it all goes your way. I went to Tokyo about 15 years ago and would love to drop the kids into the cultural immersion of this and combine it with another Disney trip.

Hi Robyn, you know the bet way to get over the holiday blues, is to start planning the next one.! Hope you find some inspiration here Tokyo is certainly is a lot closer than Florida. I am hoping for a bit of Disney magic without the jet lag !

Happy new year, I thought it was time to revive my old PTR, I had to trawl back quite a few pages to find it.

With the new year, I have to get back into trip planning mode. I have been doing lots and lots of reading, but haven't actually committed to any further plans.

The good news is, the $A has been steadily increasing value against the ¥ and is now sitting in the low 90's - so I am very happy about that, I changed $500 and split it amongst my kids as part of their Christmas present, which will be there spending money.

I will be buying our JR passes soon, these have to be used within three months of purchase, so I can do that in February. In my initial planning I had priced these at $350, but with the favourable exchange rate, they are now $307. That's a big difference when buying five!

I had an email from saki, who will be our travel angel while in kyoto. This was comforting as I had fully paid our accommodation in kyoto, and wasn't sure what happens next.

So that's where we are, only 3 months out!

WOW! 3 months!

That'll go by real quick. The dollar has been great, hasn't it? Glad it's working out in your favour.

Today I booked our airport transfer - yay, one thing off my list.

I may have mentioned DH was keen to see the snow monkey park - this is quite a hike from tokyo, so we have decided to head up there on Friday 19th, we will overnight in a traditional ryokan before heading to kyoto on Saturday.

This is quite a big decision, ryokans can be quite expensive, it comes complete with a traditional kaiseki dinner, which unfortunately I don't think will be appreciated by my kids, but will be quite an experience for them and I doubt they will partake in an onsen bath - but DH and I will love it, unfortunately they will have to come along for the ride. This one night is probably going to set me back $900, but hey, when am I ever going to be in Japan again???

I have made enquiries to stay at BIyuNoYado in Yudanaka, which seems to have excellent reviews on TA.

WOW! But as you say....when are you going to be in Japan again. Enjoy the experience, take lots of pictures so you can share it with us.
