Disneysea is different from Disneyland. Disneyland is available in Hongkong, Paris, America, and so on. But Disneysea is only available in Tokyo, Japan. Yes, it’s the one and only just in Tokyo. Disneysea has two main show that you won’t and shouldn’t miss. Both show is located on the Mediteranian Sea (at the centre of the lake). The first show is around 2.30 p.m, and the second show is the closing show, at 9.00 p.m. If you want to see it from a good spot, then you must wait there about 1 hour before the show started. It’s really worth it and I’m sure you wouldn’t miss it ! Not only the main show, Disneysea also have some Disney Parade at a certain hour, and it’s also worth to see. Personally, I think that visiting Disneysea for one day is not enough. There are lots of attractions that you should see, lots of rides that you shouldn’t miss, lots of snacks that you should try, lots of cute souvenir that you should see around! Must eat food in Disneysea : Chicken (near Indiana Jones, in Lost River Delta), Churros (I try the one near Toy Story), Popcorn (It’s everywhere), Disney Ice Cream (it’s everywhere), Cafe Portofino (Located near Mediteranian Sea, has a very nice spot, Recommended for lunch, try the one that has cheese and prawns at the top)
Tokyo Disney Sea
The rides are really fun: we were saving money so we bought the Starlight Pass (for entry from 6pm onwards, which is really dark in winter) for less than SGD50. Still, we managed to go on three rides in the 4 hours that we were in the park, including time spent queuing! We headed straight for the Tower of Terror and queued for about 1.5hours. It was totally worth it as the right took us to the top for a quick view of the entire park before sinking straight back down again.
Chiba Prefecture, Japan: this is a city in greater Tokyo area and near to the Narita International airport. This place can be used to stay for rest if you have flights reaching in evening or at night. You can explore the old town here for which there are buses leaving at about every 1 or 2 hours. To reach Tokyo next day early you must leave Chiba early. Buses are a good option to go.
Narita International Airport
ANA offers an overnight flight from SGN to Tokyo Narita Airport (NRT), Japan, for connections to USA the next morning/afternoon. As with the last trip on this flight, I chose the shrimp porridge japanese breakfast set. Very delicious, ANA food never disappoints! *TRAVEL TIP: I stayed up during the whole of this flight to get myself jetlagged to USA time, so that I'd be tired enough for the next overnight (but very short night) flight and wake up as I arrive in USA the next morning* NRT is a fantastic airport to be in, modern facilities, ANA's star alliance lounge is very very very good!
Narita International Airport
Tokyo has two main airports; Narita Airport and Haneda Airport. From Narita Airport, for a cost of 3000 YEN (2000 rupees), or free with the Japan Rail Card (JRC) (more details to follow), and 90 mins of your time, you’ll be in the city centre. From Haneda Airport it’s 410 YEN (270 rupees) and 15 minutes.The Tokyo Subway is the easiest and most efficient way of exploring Tokyo. Consisting of 285 stations across 13 different lines the thought of using it can be quite daunting. Fear not however, it’s very user-friendly and all signage has an English translation underneath and with lots of comical graphics and signs it can be very entertaining to use.The Yamanote Line runs a continuous loop around central Tokyo stopping at all the major stations. Everywhere I wanted to visit was located on this line and you can pick it up going in either direction. Single journey fares start from around 130 YEN (80 rupees).Being prepared could save you a lot of moneyIf you’re planning to continue your travels outside of Tokyo then it’s worth getting a Japanese Rail Pass (JRP). These passes are available exclusively for tourists from outside of Japan and must be purchased before arrival in Japan. They aren’t available to residents of Japan and you can’t buy them once you’ve arrived. Also, if you have a JRP then you can ride the Yamanote Line for free!Things to see and do
