Hang around Sapporo during RubyKaigi, check out Hokkaido and then back for some fun in Tokyo?

I was thinking about getting the train from Tokyo to Sapporo and then flying back.

That is basically exactly what I'd like to do.
I've always wanted to get to Hokkaido & Sapporo, and Tokyo is crazy fun too.

If I can tack it on the end, I'd love to head to Singapore for the Formula 1 (21—23), but we'll have to see how that goes.

Thats a great looking travel method… I've never done more than a few hours on a train.
Then a Shinkansen back to TK/NRT?

Also we should definitely get dinner, lunch, dinner and whisky with @jed. I'm thinking we have to hit up Kakurenbo at least once.

While on Hokkaido it looks like Noboribetsu and Otaru are close enough to Sapporo to check out. The former might require an overnight stay (or two).

The remains of a volcanic crater created by the volcanic eruption of Mt. Hiyori, Jigokudani is a representative landscape of the Noboribetsu Onsen area. Covering an area of 11 ha., there are many hot spring vents and blowholes spread across the gorge. Inspired by the frothing, boiling vents and blowholes, the name of the gorge comes from the folk-saying that the gorge was hell and the home of demons.

SPK to NRT with JAL is just under 200USD.

Around the same with ANA.

Being that there are only 5 flights during the day I am wondering if we should opt for an early one in case of any possible delays, but that would put us in NRT for a while.

Sure—Well, I'll be flying about 7hrs to Singapore and arriving at 3am… so keeping the travel light / stress free as possible sounds good.
Perhaps we can find a decent lounge at NRT to hang at, have a shower, get a drink etc.

@jed cheers. It seems like the train that we want pretty much sells out when it opens up for sale. It is available 30 days before at 10:00 (?) and it is possible to call up JR (might be possible to get on a waiting list at 06:00) to get a ticket organised I believe. I'm trying to dig the information up regarding all of that.

Anyways we're trying to get the Cassieopeia suite with the view (last carriage). It is around 47,000 JPY for two people.

The only question that I have is whether we need to get a rail pass in addition to booking this suite?

I called the Melbourne Japanese travel board people—They say that over the years they've only been able to secure ONE ticket. Apparently all the agents go down to JR and book the tickets one month ahead just like Jed tried to… and it sells out every time.

So unless Mr @jed is able to get us a return ticket, looks like we're boned :-}

@jed is the total 34,220JPY for the train that we owe you?

@jed are you available on the 10, 11 or 19 to go to http://tabelog.com/tokyo/A1316/A131601/13041029 or Kanemasu (http://tokyofood.blog128.fc2.com/blog-entry-18.html)? I think the former needs reservations. The latter might be a bit hard as you will be working and it is best to get there around 16:00.

@jed just looking at http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jreast.co.jp%2Fcassiopeia%2Faccom%2Ftwin.html and it looks like the room can take a third person. Does that mean we just need to buy three tickets if a third person wanted to join us?

@jed I'd prefer Kanemasu, but if you work during the day then it might be easier to get the other one. We're in town 10, 11 so either one. Then also on the 19th. I'm probably going to get some pizza when I get in. ;)

As for the train, I assume we can turn it in to 3, but if you could find out that'd be awesome.

d00dz,

update on the train. went to JR today, and upped the cabin to three people for another ~$150, so you're set. keep in mind it's going to be somewhere south of comfortable with that many since they need to bring in a cot. there are still two twins left, so if you're okay with paying another ~$150 or so to get another room, let me know quick.

also, i asked about the dining car, and reservations also need to be made in advance, so take a look here and let me know if you need me to book this for ya.

I think we're going to stick to one cabin unless @benburkert or @benschwarz want to go out on their own. As for the menu I think all three of us are down for the Japanese menu.

Oh and yeah, Kanemasu, I'm in for that on Monday. I'm arriving 13:25 at Haneda so I'll probably just head to the Ryokan get ready and then head out. According to Google it'll take me about an hour to get to Edoya.
