First Asian Venture - South Korea, Japan, or somewhere else?

Jump to last reply

Frequent lurker popping in for a bit of feedback from the Fodorites. My husband has requested that we plan our next trip to Asia. We'll only have a week (approximately 7-8 days in; maximum of 10 days total), between beginning of December and end of April. (Dates are ours to manipulate; overall time is non-negotiable).

Our home airport has non-stop flights to Tokyo and Seoul, which make both Japan and South Korea attractive options. I'm also open to recommendations on shorter itineraries that see only a portion of a country... our goal is to experience more, even if it means we see less.

Our primary travel interests are food/wine/beer, history and architecture, parks and natural landmarks... our interests in major cities is limited to markets, museums, and proximity to day trips.

What's your recommendation for our first week in Asia? South Korea, Japan, or somewhere else entirely?
