I'm going to Japan!

Jump to last reply

I can't believe I've gone ahead and done it...I've booked flights to Japan...solo! I'm absolutely terrified and excited at the same time. The furthest I've been before is Korea, and I stayed with a friend there the whole time.

I've got 10 days on the ground and have a vague plan of visiting Tokyo and Kyoto. I have a couple of friends in Tokyo I'd like to meet up with for dinner/sightseeing but otherwise am completely free. I'm flying in and out of Haneda airport, so was thinking of doing 3-4 days in Tokyo, going to Kyoto and then back to Tokyo. Does that sound sensible?

I was thinking of coming up with a few must-sees and working around them. I was hoping to do Mt Fuji as a day trip from Tokyo...it appears that the thing to do is go to Hakone and see it from there (as climbing season is only really July and August)...is that worthwhile? I also remember reading on here about an excellent cooking class in Kyoto...does anyone have a personal recommendation for that type of thing?

I'm on quite a budget, so will be trying to cut costs as much as I can. I'm looking at an overnight bus to Kyoto and back to save on the train fare and staying in hostels or cheap hotels. I don't mind splashing out on really special experiences but don't have the money to splash out on everything!
