Lone traveler to Japan in April

Jump to last reply

Hey everyone, Stout here

I've been self studying Japanese language and culture for some time and I've decided to go and visit Japan for about a week in April. None of my friends want to go (or at least the ones who are polite enough that I'd take along with me), so it's just going to be me. I understand most of the dos and don'ts of the culture and I can speak enough Japanese to get by, but I'm also a big super awkward white guy, and I hear that April can be busy.

So far I'm planning on visiting Tokyo and/or Kyoto, and I'd like to see more of the culture while avoiding areas that would immediately peg me as a common tourist.

Can anyone give me some thought?
