I’ll be in Japan for 15 whole days and visiting these places, starting with Tokyo…
I made this map myself (well, I labelled it).
I’ve planned my holiday with Inside Japan Tours which seemed like a great option for a first time (and lone) traveller to Japan. But I’m not going on a guided or group tour in the traditional sense, I’ll be on my own for the most part.
I’ve been able to tailor what I want to do into my own holiday plan – like the Studio Ghibli museum in Tokyo, Matsumoto castle and Mt. Fuji. As well as getting to visit traditional samurai villages, take part in a tea ceremony and stay in traditional Japanese accommodation – I don’t think I could have organised much of that by myself.
Needless to say I’m excited, even if I am feeling a little short of money now. I don’t doubt it will be well worth it. The count down starts now… 157 days.
