possible trip for family of 4 to Japan over New Years. Is it worth trying?

Jump to last reply

Hi, My husband and son were just kicking around the idea or going to Japan during THIS college winter break. This would likely be over Christmas and til 1/4/15. We would plan for about 14 days . I just spoke with a friend of mine, who lived in Japan for several years . She said that things are generally shut down from 12/29 until 1/2 or so. I was there many years ago as a summer exchange student so am somewhat familiar with the sights. We would hope to see Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima . The kids are now 19 and 23, have never been to Japan, and are keen to go. This will likely be the last time we travel together since son will ( hopefully) have a job by summer and not have much vacation.
I have gotten lots of good advice on this forum so I thought I would run it by ya'll. Is it reasonable to do this,at this late date? Is it worthwhile going when so much is likely to be closed? If so, where would you recommend that we spend the New year's holiday ?
I would much appreciate your thoughts before I get too excited about the potential plans.
Sincerely,
Evelyn
