So here's the deal I'm planning a trip to Japan. Which is actually a pretty big deal for me. I've traveled around before in Europe but I have almost always had family at the places where I'm going to. I pretty much have family everywhere. Except for Japan. So it's a whole lot of information and new things to deal with. I figure asking here for any tips or advice would be smart place to start.
My plan so far is pretty basic. Leave in April and comeback in two weeks. Not a long time but work does that. I should be right on time for the cherry blossoms. Then I figure a temple, and some other more touristy things. Like going geeky/electronic store places. Beyond that, not much sorted out. To be fair I'm still working it out, but to be not so fair I suck at planning ahead. Also I figure it would be a good idea to cram some Japanese language studies between now and the trip. I figure at minimum I should be able to ask for directions and order food.
So any advice, things to do/see, places to stay would be great, thanks.
