Staying at the Grand Pacific Hotel Le Daiba

Hi there,

My Husband and I will be staying at this Hotel for 5 days. We will be purchasing the 7 day JR Passes.

I just wanted to know if we were to go to the inner city of Tokyo for the day. Where do we catch the train from where we are using the passes?

  1. We will be going to Nagoya on the day we checkout so I just wanted to know the quickest way to get to our next destination. Would we have to go to the inner city again to catch the bullet train from there to Nagoya?

Regards,
Tee

Hi Tee,
Grand Pacific Hotel Le Daiba is located in Odaiba, which is a special area in Tokyo. Mainly because there are no JR lines running trough this area. You will have to use the Monorail (Yurikamome) service to travel from Odaiba to Shimbashi from where you can get on the JR network and use the JR Pass from there to explore Tokyo and the rest of Japan.

You would have to use the same procedure for travel to Nagoya, from Shimbashi take a local train to either Tokyo or Shinagawa stations from where the Shinkansen depart to Nagoya.

Hope this helps!

Hiya

Thank you for your email.

Would you know how much it cost to catch the monorail from Odaiba to Tokyo and Shimbashi?

Can you recommend some places for us to checkout via Shimbashi?

Regards,

Hi again,

It costs around 250yen for a one way ticket Odaiba - Shimbashi. Shimbashi is located on the Yamanote line which server all major stations in Tokyo. It would be easy to visit places such as Harajuku, Shibuya, Ueno and Shinjuku. All are great places to visit and see.

Let me know if you have special interests and I can give you some more specific recommendations.

Hope this helps too!
Daniel
