1. Kyoto. Some idiot said in here "To see the Geisha!~" though my understanding of Kyoto is that you will VERY RARELY (read - NEVER) see actual Geisha. I do want to go there to at least see some of the sites and understand what is so beautiful about Kyoto.
2. Osaka. I heard this place is like one of the party capitals of the world, and my roommate compared my attitude to an Osakan. I want to see how cool it is over there.

Some of these replies here are insane. Honestly, Harajuku so you can show off your cosplay? And make the rest of us Americans look like crap? Harajuku is NOT for Cosplay. It's often for insane fashions, but not cosplay. You cosplay at CONS. And Tokyo is nothing like Manhattan. Tokyo is HUGE and there are different areas that offer different things. Roppongi is not like Shibuya, and Omotesandou is not like Azabu Juuban. It's very diverse.

Tokyo at first place. I'm impressed by all those buildings and people, I would totally love to go to Harajuku station, Shibuya, then see that one place with sakura trees, see night life and more. I think it's one of those cities every person would like to visit. :)

and Kyoto,ofc, I like the culture. Geisha,samurai, those houses and lakes, pretty sweet.

I want to go to some temple's and older parts of Japan, especially if there are any museums. I want to see the history. I may also visit Akihabara, but that's a given have to. otherwise I'm not really interested in the modern cities.

Kyoto because of the architecture and beauty.
Tokyo because of Akihabara and Shibuya Station.
The Volks store.
A themed restaraunt.
A real bathhouse.

This is very true. I did not see any cosplay at all, not even in Akiba.Sure peeps dress up as some vkei artists on Sundays in Harajuku but it's not an everyday thing. Harajuku is a mostly known for its very new,exciting,fresh,insane,street fashion. Definitely go to and see all the areas in Tokyo. Each area has its own thing going on be it cameras,electronics,shrines, bars,books.

Anywho, I would like to go to Nagoya to see the blue castle I saw online lol and to check out the some of Nagoya's awesome indie bands. Osaka and Kyoto cuz it would be nice to see 'old school' Japan...I hope that makes sense lol I went to Tokyo last Fall and would like to see more of Japan

QFT. Seriously, that is why I hate Western Otaku culture. I've been to Harajuku before and not once did I see anything cosplay related SAVE for a fat Western guy in a Sailor Moon outfit and every single person there was laughing and mocking him.

I have plans to travel of Hokkaido for the Snow Festival, go to htosprings in Noboribetsu, and eat Hokkaido crabs.
Travel to Nikko to see the shrines for Tokugawa Ieyasu and Iemitsu.
I wouldn't mind going back to Ise Shrine and seeing that. While on the topic of historic shino shrines, I have plans to visit Izumo Shrine as well.
I would like to travel to Shikoku to visit Matsuyama, Tokushima, Kochi, and do the 88-shrine pilgrimage.
I would like to travel to Okayama to see the Okayama Castle.
I would also like to return to Shirakawa-gou in Gifu Prefecture. That place is amazing.

Since I live in Kyushu, I will visit the cities of Beppu, Miyazaki, and Kagoshima for sure.

And to round it off, I will probably take a trip Mt. Fuji since I missed it last time.

See, I heard Hokkaido was pretty awesome. I haven't been there yet, and that's one place that I meant to state.

But yeah, the "Harajuku is for cosplay" stunt makes me just want to pound my head against my desk.
