Thanks for the info
Not sure to be honest. Dubai is a huge airport but if you are not changing terminals then its probably doable. If you are serious about booking this flight (which I think is a good price) then I would phone Emirates to double check if its enough time.

I contacted Emirates .. they recommend an hour layover .. so it looks like a good flight! 😀

19 hours flight seems odd with a 2 hour layover. We fly from Edinburgh in July. Just looking at the tickets now and they say 1:35hr to Schiphol, 3 hour layover, 11 hours to Narita. Coming back is 12 hours from Haneda to CDG, 1:45 layover then 1:45 to Edinburgh.

Either way, what are you looking for? This is our plan so far: https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/sho...1&postcount=14

We locked down 3x locations over 15 days as we didnt want to burn out. There is so much to do so we didnt want to waste time travelling too much: We are doing disney (action)->kyoto (culture)->USJ (action, from Kyoto)->Tokyo (last bit of madness).

We intend to use a 7day JR pass starting on the Kyoto and ending when we get back to Tokyo. We will use Pasmo IC cards for subway and load them as necessary. Our Kids can use "children" Pasmo which we will get from the office in Narita (whilst booking the Shinkansen at the same time). First hotel is Okura Bay then a pair of AirBnBs: a house in Kyoto next to train station and AEON mall then an apartment a few mins from Ueno station - we have used extensive use of google maps to start mapping out roads and landmarks.

Most of the travelling in Kyoto is not JR for us but we will have a JR pass active. Same again for Tokyo, whilst we CAN get away with JR and walking it wont be the ideal route - this means we dont need a JR pass active for our entire trip - just the bullet trains will make it cost effective alone, any other trips are a bonus.

Wifi will be picked up at the airport and we are all learning Japanese via 2 apps - lingodeer and duolingo. I prefer lingodeer.

Thats really kind of you, thank you!
Not a problem!

Be lovely to natter with a fellow Dibber, my partner is not much of a Disney fan and the visit to TDR is quite quick - we have a full day for TDS and a "after 6pm to 10pm" visit to TDL. Then we move into Tokyo - perhaps a sneaky day back later in holiday, but not holding out much hope lol.

Would love to hear your plans, what we both are looking forward to / are nervous about etc etc. Might be better after I get back in May then I can at least talk about my actual experience, but does not mean we could meet sooner - have a Japan / Disney centric natter

Sounds great!

Everyone has been very helpful with information but I think I feel more confused than before 😊
Im not sure wether to fly into Tokyo and out of Osaka or into Osaka and out of Tokyo ..
Or just fly in and out of Tokyo
Ha ha! You can see Im very confused!
Im also unsure how long to stay in each place and what areas are best for hotels .. were thinking if Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto and have the options of day trips inbetween ..
As i said Im really confused!

From what I have read its better to base yourself in either Kyoto or Osaka. There is no need to move hotels as its only around 1/2 hour between the two cities.

Thank you, so we could split our stay and book hotels for Tokyo and Kyoto and do day trips from both?
