Japan itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

I'm off to Japan in a week and SUPER excited... I've bought a couple of guide books (Lonely Planet guide for Japan and Pocket Guide to Tokyo), checked out Japan Guide, Wikitravel, etc. I have a few ideas of things I definitely want to do, but I'd also like to know some of your suggestions about what you consider unmissable. The only really definite plan I have is meeting a Japanese friend the Saturday after I arrive. He's going to teach me how to make gyoza at his house and he also mentioned Harajuku and going to a karaoke bar. Otherwise, I can do anything.

FRIDAY: Arrive in Tokyo around midday
SATURDAY: Spending day with Japanese friend (meeting in Asakusa)
SUNDAY: Tokyo
MONDAY: Tokyo (overnight bus to Kyoto)
TUESDAY: Kyoto
WEDNESDAY: Kyoto
THURSDAY: Kyoto
FRIDAY: Shinkansen to Tokyo (probably around midday)
SATURDAY: Day trip to Hakone
SUNDAY: Tokyo
MONDAY: Leave for airport

What would you do if you were going again? I am especially interested in visiting temples and shrines and any type of eating, but open to pretty much anything!
