My family of 5 have a few trips in and out of Tokyo planned and I am looking at a great site I found at trip advisor for train schedules.
On Saturday August 2nd, we travel to Echigoyuzawa for 2 nights from Tokyo. We are staying at the Grand Prince Asakasa in Tokyo. Are there times to avoid traveling on Saturday? What's the easiest way to get to Tokyo station from the hotel? We will be traveling lightly.
On Monday August 4th, we travel to Nikko for 2 nights. Are there times to avoid rush hour travel leaving Echigoyuzawa station in the morning?
On Wednesday August 6th, we travel back to Tokyo and the Grand Prince Asakasa for 2 nights.
Thanks for any help! I think I am finally starting to get a handle on this train stuff. :)
