Japan Planning

Japan Rail Pass exchange orders.Chances are that in two weeks time we’ll be somewhere 30,000 feet above ground on our way to Japan. We’re reading and planning and reading and planning. We have a write up for a good number of days already. We have a detailed plan for Tokyo and Kyoto which should cover half of our vacation. We know how we’ll get around (subway, buses, trains) and we know what we want to see.

The night of our 5th anniversary we’ll be spending in Kyoto, in a traditional Japanese ryokan — Nishiyama Ryokan. It includes a traditional dinner and a traditional breakfast. Should be a very memorable day and hopefully not in the way that 2009th one was.

Also we still have to plan out our trip to Hiroshima and a nearby island of Miyajima, a trip to Nara and what we want to see in Osaka if anything. Only 2 weeks left and still a lot of reading and research to do. One of the great resources turned out to be japan-guide.com — wealth of information.

P.S. We already got our Japan Rail Pass exchange orders in the mail — not cheap at all, but should make things easier and save some money for us overall. These are only available for foreign tourists.
