newbie solo traveler! budget traveling Japan for a month

Jump to last reply

So as the title says, I am a newbie solo traveler. I am a female in my early 20s and will be traveling around Japan for 4ish+ weeks. I want to hit so many places! My top places I am definitely visiting are Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima. But in addition, Ive heard Nara, Yokohama, Kamakura, Kobe, Nagoya, Hakone, and Shizuoka are wondrous (although I am really not sure what they offer). I am obviously still trying to figure out the exact locations I am going to ^.^" So, I basically have no idea on how much the trip would total. I figured...

flight: ~$2000 round trip (flying into Tokyo from the western US and traveling back to Tokyo to fly out?)
in between travel: ~$800?? (japanese rail pass: ~$400, and then Im adding $400 to be on the safe side of other transportation)
lodging: ~$1800 (decently priced hostels/hotels...about $60 a night Im assuming)
food: ~$1200 (maybe $40/day? I do not drink and am not a heavy eater)
extra spending cash: ??

Does this seem about right? Im actually trying to see the price to travel europe for 3 weeks vs japan for a month (or a bit more). Which would be cheaper?

*if anyone can advise me on what cities shouldn't be missed too, that would be so great!

Thanks to all :)
