Japan Golf Trip

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for courses to play in Japan? I have looked at the resort group that owns Kapalua and they have a number of hotels/courses in Japan. Any other suggestions in or around Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto?

Also, has anyone travelled with their clubs and travel bag? Interested to know what it's like getting around Tokyo in particular and using the train between the major cities.

I know several who have played there, I haven't as of yet. To get the premium courses in Japan you need a tour company for access for Hirono, Naruo (under reno until Oct), Tokyo, Kawana, Yokohama, etc.

 

The trains are a great way to get around as I have been there a couple times and used them extensively. Didn't do it with a golf bag however. I know of a Australian tour provider who runs Japan trips if you are interested let me know.

This is a longshot, but will be going to Japan this May.  I will be in the Kobe/Osaka area the first half and Yokohama/Tokyo the second half.

Don't know if anybody that currently resides in Japan would like to meet for a round or have a means to arrange a tee time.

 

I will be fully vaccinated, but completely understand if one is uncomfortable, give the virus situation in Japan.

May as in this May?  In a few days May?  They aren't allowing visitors into the country right now even I don't think.  I don't think golf in Japan is in the cards for several months.

Thankfully I have a Japanese Passport.

 

So yes, this May, the one in a few days.

And yes, I do believe you are correct about visitors entering the country.

And I am hoping you are wrong about golf for those that are in the country.
