    Welcome to the first thread about Celebration Japan. So far we know that it will be held April 18-20 in 2025 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba.

    Now according one of my Celebration friends, who's been a lot in Japan, Chiba is in the Tokyo region with Narita being the closes airport, but instead of taking a train to the centre of Tokyo when you arrive you go directly to Chiba.

    Also looks like it is a short (and direct) train ride away from Tokyo Disneyland.
    So whom all is planning on joining us in Japan?

    Well I managed to get the Tokyo trip I booked for September 2023 canceled and refunded, minus a $200 fee. I’m putting the rest of that money aside for when flights and hotels start to open up. At least on Expedia, that won’t be until April 2024 at the earliest.

    Well, I'm pretty sure I won't attend Japan [face_dunno]
    Too expensive for me to travel over there from Canada!
    I think I'm better to start saving money for Celebration 2027! Wherever it's going to be!

    For anyone attending DragonCon next week there is a panel presentation by the Silk Road Panel on Thursday night about traveling to Japan (tips/tricks/ect). The panel is scheduled to run 2.5 hours and is presented by 2 people who recently traveled to Japan.

    I'm considering it. I have wanted to see Japan and this may be motivation enough. Already doing some research.

    I had mentioned that there was going to be a presentation at DragonCon by a couple who travel to Japan and they had put together a presentation they did at the Con. There is a lot of good travel info here dealing with public transportation and other areas.

    I asked the presenter if I could post a copy of this to some SW Celebration Japan groups and he was fine with that. He also has other presentation with travel to Japan that he will provide if you contact him. I believe his contact info is at the end of the presentation.

    Hope this helps with questions you might have. Some of the Covid info at the beginning is no longer relevant.

    Thank you for this! I had no idea about the prescription information and will definitely need to look into that if I go.
