What would you do, and where would you go?

For my part...

1. Odaiba in Tokyo - the arcade near the ferris wheel was the biggest I've seen, and "Decks" shopping center with 7-floor Sega Joypolis was amazing.

2. Hakone - there's an onsen with [url ="coffee, tea, and sake hot tubs"]http://www.amusingplanet.com/2014/09/soak-in-wine-green-tea-coffee-or-sake.html, and you can learn arts and crafts like glass-blowing, all in a scenic setting.

3. Kyoto - the monkey park in Arashiyama, and bamboo forest is my top pick, but Kiyomizu-dera offers fantastic views of the city, and if I was there on a sunny day, I would go see Kinkakuji.

4. Riding the bullet train as far as it goes. This one isn't about a specific place, really, it's just fun to watch the scenery go zipping by!

Excerpt from another thread;
"... I've scoped out Furano, Hokkaido, and have been eye-balling potential spots to check out, such as the Furano Ski Resort, Furano Cheese Factory, and Furanojibirukan brewery..."

I specifically picked Hokkaido for some of the landscape and cultural similarities to rural and semi-rural Pennsylvania, in order to lessen culture shock. Plus, I'm not fond of the bustle of urban life, anyway.

If all expenses paid means all shopping spree paid, guess who's partying in Akiba. And Nakano. And Nipponbashi.

If not... eh... Hokkaido? Okinawa? Various islands that are otherwise a pain to get to? I mean, they're paying for it.

It would be fun opportunity for some en-plein-air alla-prima drawing/painting. I would probably avoid cities if I can. I don't care much for crowds. Where would I go? Who knows?

I totally agree about the Robot Restaurant! Maybe by the time I go there, they'll have an English mode.

Akihabara too of course, I should have put that in the OP.

Oh! And Okunoshima: "Rabbit Island":

Hmmm... two weeks isn't really long enough for a longer trip so I don't think I'd spend it checking out Hokkaido or Okinawa. I'd probably just go simple. Spend most of the time in Kyoto enjoying the food and culture and then leave myself a few days to go nuts in Akiba.

I'd be going to Akiba and also, probably visiting my relatives living there.

I like this one.

A Maid Cafe would be wonderful too, but... I would want to speak better Japanese to enjoy it to the fullest!

I thought it was awesome just walking around non-touristy places. I'd probably do that again.
