Plan On Finally Visiting Japan, Looking For Advice...!

Jump to last reply

I've got some money to finally do this! I should mention, this will be my first time *outside* of Canada -- I don't consider just going across the border to northern New York State really going 'outside' of my country -- in my life, although it may be the second if I go to the UK first...haven't decided fully yet.

I'm more interested in Tokyo than other parts of the country, but that is up for discussion, as it may be my first -- and only -- time I'd have the money to go.

I think if I go, the summer would be the best time for me to do so, granted I don't get to see the cherry blossoms in the spring, but that doesn't matter much to me.

So, where should I visit in Tokyo?

Hopefully I can make some friends here who'd show me around, either guys or girls...preferably girls.

I wouldn't mind seeing some of the areas that are in the movie "Enter the Void", even though I hated said movie!

Can anyone tell me why is there such a big price disparity between Air Canada & Japan Airlines:

AC (Tango), round trip: CAD$1912.95

JAL, round trip: CAD$8967.64 (I don't have this kind of money, so obviously JAL is not an option)

And I've chosen the same dates: Jul 1 - Jul 15, 2014. Just looking at prices at the moment. But don't you find it strange that there is such a disparity?
