. . .wow! That looked incredible! Went through all the pictures! ( \o/ yay for lunch breaks ) Looks to be absolutely fantastic! Been hearing about Japan from a friend of mine who was recently there. I'm now looking into flights and accommodations :P. Hopefully I can book something for some time later ^-^!


What cities are you looking at going to? My friend in Kyoto helped us book a night at the Super Hotel Kyoto Shijo ( http://www.superhoteljapan.com/en/s-hotels/shijyogawara.html ). It was about 5800 yen for the night, and the room had free internet, free breakfast, the hotel was brand new, clean, comfortable (but small), 32" LCT HDTV, and choose your own pillow based on hardness. One of the best and cheapest places I stayed. We liked it a lot more than a certain Ryokan that costs us over three times that a night, no breakfast, and we felt a bit disappointed by it (room had an odor of dirty socks, sweaty feet, and dirty sneakers, which grossed us out a bit).

The trip was amazing, and I am working on the plans for a second trip. I am also trying to pencil in time each day for studying Japanese, so I am able to at least read and speak a little bit. Last trip, I had zero ability to communicate.

I'm not fussed about accommodations I'm happy so long as i'ce got a spot to store items and sleep. Was looking at the capsule hotels! They look funky yet terrifying! Always thought that Akita, Mito, Chiba, Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka looked like remarkable locations :)!

I am trying to figure out a 2013 trip, but work has been a royal pain in the ass about me taking time. I earned 45 vacation days, and it's a huge headache every time I want to take any. Not sure if there will be a 2013 trip. Funds are there, but so are work issues.
