Sea Paradise and Yokohama Cosmoworld
(Saturday, 2 October)
Back to Shinjuku Tokyo
then head to two parks!
Shinjuku Washington hotel, leave our luggage at check in and head out to
Walk to Shinjuku Station.
Take train to Hakkeijima. Short walk to
the Sea Paradise.
(Note: There is not a direct train to Yokohama between 8:44 and 10:31.
So if we want to ge to to Sea Paradise earlier,
we need to catch the 8:44 train
from Shinjuku. Otherwise we can take a train that changes in Shibuya
that leaves about
every 10 minutes)
To get to Sea
Paradise, you'll get on the electric railway at Shin-Sugita:
Here is your stop
for Sea Paradise. The park is just outside the train station. (You can
see Blue Fall from the station)

Stay at Shinjuku
3-2-9 Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo
Note: The Shinjuku
Washington hotel was one of the more reasonably priced of the Shinjuku
hotels. It was a great location as there is an
underground walkway that connects the hotel with the Shinjuku rail
station. There are tons of restaurants in the area, and it's in the
of Shinjuku. Expect to pay anywhere between $150 - $300 per night for a
Shinjuku area hotel. If you can split this cost with another
person, it's becomes very reasonable.
(Sunday, 3 October)
Take Limobus from
hotel to Narita Airport.
Fly from Narita Airport on Sunday at 2:55pm, Korean Air which Arrives at Los
Angeles International Airport on
Sunday at 9:00am.

I hope this travel
guide has been helpful. Please also see our Trip Reports and photo
updates for more information. I've included below
some links that you might want to check out if you are planning a trip to
The following links
were very helpful when planning our trip:
Rail Time Tables - Most of the train information in this guide came from
this page. As long as you know the station closest to the park
you are visiting, this site will be VERY helpful! Note that you have to
put in the stations as one word. For example,
would be entered as "Shinsugita" for your start point or
destination. Remove any spaces or hyphens.
Japan Traffic Guide - Similar to the JR Rail Time Tables, this site also
gives information on bus lines, mono-rails, private rail lines,
etc. We found it best when looking for train information to check BOTH
of these sites to find the best and quickest option to our destination.
Rail Pass - This site has everything you need to know about obtaining a JR
- This is a GREAT source of information about everything Japan! The
travel Q&A on the forums were very helpful!
Limousine - A shuttle bus company that will take you from Narita Airport
to just about anywhere in Tokyo.
Disney Resort (English Version) - The Official Site to the Tokyo Disney
- The Roller Coaster Database with tons of information about parks and
coasters in Japan and all over the world.
Weather Information - This site seemed to be more accurate than
weather.com for Japan weather forecasts.
Inn - We found our Nagoya Hotel from this site. Ended up being a
GREAT central location to many parks.
Washington Hotel - Another great location! This hotel was right in
the heart of Shinjuku, and reasonably priced for a Tokyo hotel.
