Nagoya from $294 RT from Chicago and all United cities

that UAL Nagoya sale is actually even lower from DFW, ORD; good from all UAL cities it seems. 4 night min stay however.

How expensive/hard is it to get from Nagoya to Tokyo?

Nagoya is on the Shinkansen line from ShinOsaka to Tokyo. In between you have Kyoto, Nagoya, ShinYokohama and Shinagawa as the main stops.
It might cost you quite a bit to use the Shinkansen both ways. They are certainly not cheap.

Then I suppose that you will also have to pay extra for the ride from the airport station to the main train station. You might be better off buying a one week Shinkansen pass.

See the Central Japan Rail website for timetables and prices.

Japan is where money goes to die

Figure about $200 for the bullet train. If you're planning on staying for an extended period you can get a Japan rail pass which gives you unlimited Shinkansen rides for (I think) a week. You can research the passes pretty easily on the web (but YOU MUST buy them overseas - they are not available in Japan). Once you get to BigT, watch your money disappear. Back when I was working in Tokyo, my company more than doubled my salary and I still felt poor. In my opinion, you should never go to Japan just because there is a good fare. You'll spend many times the fare once you get there. However, if you've always wanted to go to Japan, this could be a great opportunity.

Lightbulb NW also offering low fares from many cities to NGO...and special BONUS miles too!

FYI: Checked out NW for NGO sale fares:

NW is also offering similar low fares to NGO....from many of their US cities...I tried OKC to NGO Friday Depart 4/8 and Return Monday 4/11 and fare was $562.42 incl taxes......and their min stay is 3 days.

Found a two 3 star hotels in Nagoya for 2 nights at $81.50 night so rooms are available.

If you are Plat or Silver on NW that may make a good MR...with your 100% bonus miles for Gold or 125% bonus miules for Plat.

Also note that NW has a promo special for bonus miles for all flights to NGO:
from nw website:

Between March 26, 2005 and June 11, 2005, fly roundtrip on a qualifying fare to or through Nagoya, Japan and you will earn up to 15,000 WorldPerks Bonus Miles! Simply register prior to travel, but no later than June 1, 2005.

The special fares being offered are eligible for the 5,000 mile bonus

I had to phone into United to get the fare quoted.

Bad news is that it's a T fare class...NO UPGRADES allowed.

With taxes it came to over $400, I think it was closer to $450.

Regards,
Robert

Nagoya

Very interested in the fare - but that seems to be the easy part. I am shut out on hotels (even moderate) on the dates I can travel (any three nights) from April 12 - 20 and April 26 - May 4. Any ideas would be welcome.

I slightly disagree. Yes, Tokyo is the most expensive city in the world, but there is so much more to Japan than Tokyo. You can EASILY make a trip to Japan on a budget, as long as you avoid the big cities. With the one week train pass, you can go anywhere in Japan on any train (Except Nozomi). I may be biased, but a trip to Kyushu for a few days is not a bad option. Nagoya to Fukuoka is about 3 1/2 hours. Kyushu is beautiful in the spring, and the weather is great.

I agree. Kyoto is even cheap by Tokyo standards. It you stay in Western hotels and eat Western food it is more expensive than if you do not. You can get a satisfying dinner in Tokyo for under ten dollars.

Having just gotten back from London, even Tokyo doesn't look expensive.

By the way, when are the dates for the Nagoya sale on UA?
