    Weather in Japan in March and April

    Weather in Japan at that time is typically cold to mild (i.e. 10 to 20 degrees), although it tends to be on the cool side more than mild. But the region of Japan you go to will influence it. The pacific side of Japan tends to be warmer than the Japan sea / north side. almost 5 years ago

    Is the radiation level in Tokyo safe for a 2-year-old (Sept 2012)? What about the food & water supplies?

    It is completely safe now. Has been for sometime. I've been living in Yokohama for 10 years (just next to tokyo) and there have been 0 problems since the earthquake. about 5 years ago

    Japan Itinerary. HELP!

    The tour looks pretty good but i would also add in Kamakura if you can. It is second to Kyoto in terms of temples and is about an hour out of Yokohama. about 5 years ago

    What area is the best to stay in Tokio for first timers

    Very much depends on what you are interested in. But for places with ease of access to most tourist spots in the Kanto region (that's Ibaraki, Tochigi and Chiba, Gunma, Saitama, Tokyo, Kanagawa & Yamanashi Prefectures.) and access to areas such as Kamakura, Mt. Fuji, Shibuya, Ryogoku I'd recommend staying in Shinagawa. The Prince hotel is apparently very good (i've not stayed there as i live in Yokohama). Shinagawa also enables easy access to other areas such as Kyoto. But once again, it very much depends on your interests. over 5 years ago

    it is safe to travel in yokohama japan april 2012

    Sabi, Yokohama is completely safe to travel to. Indeed as is Japan provided you stay away from Fukushima. Crime is almost non existant, the food is prepared to world class standards and the people are polite and reasonably friendly. over 5 years ago

    Hi....going to Tokyo the beginning of April...a little nervous about the quakes and even a tsunami...should I be?

    I don't want to double up on what the others have said but i should say that whilst Tsunamis are part of japanese culture they are extremely rare, and almost never as big as last years one. I've lived in yokohama for close on ten years and i assure that it is safe - it's much closer than osaka is. Everything has more or less returned to normal for the vast majority of Japan. Even with the aftershocks 99% of buildings are built to withstand them. Just stay away from the affected fukushima area and you will have a wonderful time! So in short no, do not be worried about it. Just get the right travel insurance and have a great time viewing the cherry blossoms! almost 6 years ago

    Planning to go to Tokyo alone. What would make feel stupid if i dont do or visit when i come there?

    There is so much to do in Tokyo/Kanagawa. Firstly in Tokyo, check out Shibuya at night. Secondly go to Asakusa Senso-Ji. Another thing to do is to go to Tsukiji fish market. Akihabara is good if you want to see the the otaku (nerd) sub-culture - go on a weekend though. In Kanagawa i'd recommend going to Kamakura - it is so beautiful and a worth a day trip. Nikko is also amazing, and if you have a day to spare go there too. Also Mt. Fuji is a beautiful sight to see and also can be done in a day. But really what is it that you want to do and how long do you intend to stay? about 6 years ago
