Planning 1st trip to japan. Ideas?

Jump to last reply

We have decided to book a flight to japan for next September using miles before uniteds mileage increase kicks in. This will be our first trip to Asia.
We can be gone as long as 3 weeks. We have no preconception of what to see or where to go.
Hoping you fodorites will be able to suggest an itinerary that will give us a blend of traditional and modern, large and small...etc. in other words, if you were planning a trip for some newbie friends, what would it look like?
we are active 60's and no strangers to independent travel. We tend to be 3* and 4* travelers for accommodations . Thanks
