It took more than three years, but I finally booked tickets again to Japan! Woohoo!!!Bring out the biiru!
Tickets were on sale and as luck (namely a friend who told me to go online) would have it, I got to book two! For this trip, my husband and I are flying to Kansai International Airport instead of Narita and we’re making Osaka as our base instead of Tokyo.
We plan to stay in the Kansai area as we didn’t get to see much of it the first time we went (save for Kyoto) and more importantly so we can keep expenses to a minimum (the shinkansen fare or even the JR Pass can drain the budget).
It’s still more than four months away but this hasn’t stopped me from starting to plan an itinerary around Osaka, Nara, Kyoto (how can one not stop there again?!) and maybe even Kobe. This time, I have learned my lesson and won’t be planning a marathon of sights and activities. But I am looking forward to doing these:
If you have suggestions or recommendations on where to go or what to try when we’re there, please let me know! Kampai!
