Tokyo International Airport (Haneda) Terminal No2 Observation Deck

Reviewed By XavierShoot - Singapore, Singapore

The international terminal has airline lounges operated by All Nippon Airways, Japan Airlines (oneworld) and Cathay Pacific Airways (oneworld).
I happen to be scheduled for ANA flight, priority seems to be given for taxy, take off and landing, which is great! There are plenty of restaurant which serves and behave as though they are from the edo era.
Facility wise, lifts, escalator, toilet, baby room, food, money changers, most of the things are top quality

Nihon Minkaen Folk House Museum

Reviewed By ktari3 - Tokyo

A great to place to spend an afternoon strolling amongst the old houses.
They're set in lovely peaceful grounds and midweek its fairly quiet so a good time to go.
There's a lot of English guidance so you'll be well informed and it's only 30 mins from Shinjuku St on the Odakyu Line (express train).

Yokohama Landmark Tower Sky Garden

Reviewed By freeamac - San Jose

First make sure that day is clear before you go up unless all you want to see is the nearby city. Go up a bit before sunset so you can get both the day and night view. Winter time usually the best season for a clear view and the holiday season is extra special for viewing the holiday lighting.

Airport Transport Service

Reviewed By David L - Sydney, Australia

For those travelling on business, the limoubus services are great. They provide reasonably priced door to door services to most international hotel chains. We found out recently that there is a cheaper JR (Japan Rail) operated express service that departs from major train stations which are equally good, of course you will have to negotiate your way to the terminal. A limoubus trip from Shinjuku to Narita will cost 3100 yen and a JR express trip from Tokyo terminal to Narita costs 1000 yen plus 194 yen from Shinjuku to Tokyo station. Similar one will be going to Ginza to take a limoubus.

Fujiko F Fujio Museum

Reviewed By distyDistydisty - Jakarta, Indonesia

I always watched Doraemon series when I was a kid. So being here is one of my bucketlist. And now its checked.
First, bear in mind that ticket sold in Lawson store, in a vending machine, with Japanese language. Yeah, that the first barrier, the Japanese language machine with Japanese speaks shop keeper. So, try to go to Lawson store in tourists spot hopefully you’ll find the english speaks shopkeeper. Mine, I did browsed how to buy the ticket and print it out, later I just gave the step-by-step to buy the ticket to the shopkeeper. You’ll get the voucher ticket to be replaced in the museum.
Entrance fee is ¥1.000 with 4 timing option to explore the museum. 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm. The maksimum time fo visiting the museum is 1.5hr. I think 1.5hr is enough to explore the museum.
So, I took train to Noborito St, its covered by JR Pass. From there, I took shuttle bus to the museum, it costs ¥210 one way. And stopped exactly in front of the museum.
Before entering the museum, the museum guard will explain the dont and dos inside the museum. Taking pictures is prohibited inside the exhibition area. Coz the exhibition area is Fujiko F Fujio the real masterpiece, so you will the the handwriting comic of Doraemon.
You’ll have something like handytalkie for listening the explanation inside the exhibition area. Each showcase has a number which you just press the number to listen. English friendly handytalkie.
Another barrier, the museum is semi English friendly, especially in theather show. You’ll watch 20min movie with only Japanese language with no English subtittle. Fiuhhhh..
Beside the exhibition area, theres some place you can take picture like outside area, her you can play like Nobita and Friends in the field where the pipe stack is there.
Welll, im happpy here.

Minato Mirai 21

When Japan emerged from centuries of isolation in the mid-19th century, Yokohama was a tiny seaside village, home to only 100 people or so. But as the tide of internationalization rose, a port was established and Yokohama began to grow as a gateway to Japan. Yokohama is now a leading international trading port, the second largest city in Japan after Tokyo. Situated just a short distance along the coast from the Japanese capital, and within easy reach of Haneda Airport, Yokohama is now a magnet for tourists not just from Japan but from every corner of the world; it's a place everyone wants to visit. Minato Mirai 21 is a modern urban development that was created, and continues to evolve, on 186ha of land. A shipbuilding facility that used to divide Yokohama's two main urban centers on Tokyo Bay was relocated, and additional land was reclaimed from the sea. In 1989 an exposition was held to mark the 100th anniversary of Yokohama's city status and the 130th anniversary of the opening of Yokohama Port. Following that event development gathered momentum, and now the area boasts office blocks, commercial facilities, hotels, amusement parks and convention facilities, as well as such cultural amenities as art museums and concert halls. This, the new face of Yokohama, offers an entire spectrum of urban functions and attracts more than 70 million visitors every year. Minato Mirai 21 is full of great experiences. The liberating expanse of Tokyo Bay and the dynamic appeal of the contemporary architecture contribute to the area's strikingly unusual beauty, which you can enjoy from the elegant surroundings of several first-class hotels. For the shopper, more than 600 stores offer an astonishingly broad selection of goods ranging from top fashion brands to animation character merchandise. Apart from excellent Japanese cuisine, delicious food from around the world is available at more than 200 restaurants. Theme parks offer exciting rides, parks a place to sit and enjoy the seascape. Packed with pleasure, Minato Mirai 21 is a fun place to visit with family and friends at any time of year, on any occasion, and for so many different reasons. If you move on to the area beyond Minato Mirai 21, you'll find intriguing glimpses of a fascinating history in the Kannai district, which developed quickly in the second half of the 19th century after the Port of Yokohama opened, and beyond Kannai you'll arrive at Japan's largest Chinatown. Yokohama offers points of interest that no other city can match. And just a day trip away are some of the best hot spring baths in Japan at Hakone, as well as the globally renowned beauty of Mt. Fuji. So after a day of fun in Minato Mirai 21, you can spend the night at one of the area's great hotels and then the next day you can be soaking in an onsen or admiring a view of Mt. Fuji. That is the special appeal of a relaxing holiday based in Japan's new leading tourism and leisure destination: Minato Mirai 21.

Minato Mirai is a large modern complex with hotels, offices, restaurants, conference centre and lots of high quality shops in a compact setting. If you are lucky, you may see a local concert or theatre production in the entertainment area of the main shopping arcade. The shops are good - many brand names as well as local marques - and there are dozens of restaurants around the building, Indian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Western, even a lively Hard Rock Cafe. The Landmark Tower at one end has a great view of the city from the top deck, very well-organised and arranged, with souvenir shop of course, and yet another restaurant. At the other end is the massive Pacifico conference centre, and open auditorium structure. Close by is the magnificent Yokohama Maritime Museum and the old NIppon Maru sailing ship, which you can tour. Further afield is the Aka Rengakan (Red Brick Warehouse), more shops and Motion Blue jazz club, the Yokohama version of the famous Blue Note.

Jonanjima SeasidePark

Reviewed By Joy_Sinha - Kolkata (Calcutta), India

A community park in Ota, Tokyo.
It has a large campground, sandy beach and dog run. There are enclosures for picnic and barbeque as well.
One can see the flights take off from Haneda Airport. Also, watch the movement of ships and vessels entering ports in Tokyo.
Take a Keikyu bus Mori32 (Jonanjima round route) from JR Omori-eki east exit, or Tokyo Monorail Ryutsu Center and get off at the bus stop Jonanjima 4 chome. From there ,3 minutes by foot from the stop.
Great views in the evening hours.

Ikuta Ryokuchi Park

Reviewed By Mandy N - Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa, Japan

After visiting the Folk House Museum I stumbled on this gem at the end of the trail. Fountains that the kids could play in, picnic tables AND a cafe (good food at reasonable prices but limited menu). Flower buffs will (depending on season) love the various areas with beautiful displays of Irises (June), Hydrangea Mountain (summer) and Azalea Mountain (April/May). The Wild Bird Park is worth a visit too. But don't miss the Folk House Village.

Happoen Garden

Reviewed By travellerfromatown - Allentown, Pennsylvania

While a way an hour or so in the traditional garden, awestruck at the bonsai on display-- some are over 500 years old-- and winding paths. Then Treat yourself to a traditional tea ceremony. The tea ceremony was not quite what I expected, as the green tea was thick and grassy, but the ceremony itself was interesting.

Ikegami Hommon-ji Temple

Reviewed By Alejandro_B - Guelph, Canada

We received the New Year at this temple and really enjoyed it.
It seemed more accessible and less crowded than Sensoji temple and different groups of selected individuals were allowed to help ring the bell for the New Year celebration. Something we thought it wasn't possible.
There were many delicious food stalls with different food (yakisoba, potatoes, etc.) and hot sake.
I really recommend to visit during the New Year celebration.
