Im saving up for next year!
Went last year in november, 1400$ for round trip ticket and a hotel room for two weeks. Flight was out of an airport in New Jersey, 14hrs there 12hrs back no stops, only thing I would have changed is I would have made it first class tickets, thats a long time cooped up on a plane and the extra room in First class would have helped with that. I brought 800$ in yen for spending money and didn't spend all of it even though I was trying by the end of the trip. I stayed in Tokyo and got around by train/subway/bullet train. Went to Harajuku and Akihabara two times a piece, hit a couple different temples, arcades , tech stores, anime stores, anything that looked fun really. One major piece of advice, bring good walking shoes as I ended up walking a MINIMUM of 10 miles each day. All in all I had a great time, wished I could have stayed longer. Now I can't wait to go back, and I'm not sure I'll be coming back to the states this time.
I would absolutely love to go, just to visit Tokyo. I have other priorities first though...
I'm planning on visit Japan next year. Maybe I could stay in my relative house in Osaka tho.
Oh really? What a coincidence I am also going to japan next year. Lol
I was lucky to of gone as an exchange student my senior year of high school. My host family lived in Saitama which was really close to Tokyo. I wish i was old enough to appreciate it the way I should have though. A few years can really change someones perspective.
I went to Japan....in my:
Nope I'm too poor...
I'm hoping to get stationed there next year.
Been there twice. I want to go to China next.
Went there in Winter 2014 for New Year's and Comiket.
