Lets talk about the trip to Japan in here.

Things to plan for:

Cost:
Ticket: 900 dollars(Cheapest tickets)
Hostel/Hotel: 40-90 dollars a night depending on the hotel/hostel
Transportation: 45,000 yen($462) for a rail pass which gives you unlimited transportation with train, bus, and ferry.
Food: It all depends on where you eat. Some places are cheap like 5-7$ a meal.
Personal Funding: Up to you.

The cost will probably be around 2,500 - 3,000 dollars for 2 weeks. You can make it even cheaper if you stay in a hostel which is around 30-40 dollars a day.

We also have to talk about when everyone is free. If I go i'll probably be staying at my relatives house in Japan and I doubt I can let anyone stay with me. We will see though. But that's way into the future so lets just talk about it for fun right here

I make it habit of checking booking websites daily. I use Kayak. The prices change everyday. So, if you have a specific date in mind you should check constantly for cheap prices on that day.
The sooner your tickets the better. If you buy them too close to your travel date, the tickets will be very expensive.

Also, you should look at the exchange rates and how much the yen is equal to the US dollar (or other money currency). When I went I was lucky enough to exchange it at a lower rate and the yen had lost it's value a little bit.

Yeah your right. That would be good to do. Cheaper prices are always better xD.

Is there a specific time of year you guys want to go? As for myself if I can go I'm planning on going for a week in March or two weeks in May.

What are your preferences?

My preferences would be during the summer or maybe during the winter. Not sure on the specifics yet though. I'll let you know soon.
