Ahh where are you going in Japan? How long? I studied abroad there in 2010 and got to go all over -- Hiroshima, Tokyo, Kamakura, Mt. Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Himeji... I have so many places I'd recommend seeing!
We’re flying into Tokyo, but I don’t think we’re going to spend more than 1-2 days there before going to Kyoto. I’m really excited about Kyoto.
After that, we’re not 100% sure. Our trip is only about 10 days long, and we haven’t booked our hotels or train tickets yet. (We’re going to get a JR Pass, I think.) We might stay in Kyoto for 2-3 days, and then spend another 2-3 in Osaka, which is the city we’re flying home from. I’m looking forward to the food culture in Osaka.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! We have a few friends from college living in Japan that we’re looking forward to seeing. We’re going to get them to show us around on a few of the nights.
(Is it silly that I’m hoping the YOI movie is out by April 2018? How amazing would it be if I could see it in Japan?)
