Published on September 27, 2009
It can be an interesting even of night in TOKYO..... from ALL OVER THE WORLD... People there~
Many thanks, Honor. I appreciate it!
I'll be sure to look into these and try to get to them while I'm there. You're right, the notorious expensive Japan can be circumnavigated to some degree, but will still be a shock to the pocketbook after SE Asia. Still, not a deterant enough for me. Thanks for recommending a spa, I want to check out the hot springs there, do you know of any more, maybe in the Kyoto area?
Fantastic that you're coming to Japan : ) It doesn't have to be so expensive - you just need to know where to go!
My big recommendation is not to leave Narita straight away. Spend one night there either when you arrive or before you leave and explore the local town there. The temple is lovely with great grounds to stroll round and the leaves are just starting to turn - we were there last weekend. http://www.naritasan.or.jp/e-index.html
In Tokyo visit a local izakaya - or in Kyoto for that matter. I have a great guest author who has written about some local izakayas here http://www.tokyotopia.com/tokyo-izakaya.html
Also in Tokyo visit Odaiba http://www.jnto.go.jp/eng/location/regional/tokyo... and http://www.tokyotopia.com/odaiba.html
Hmmm what else is a must... I love Spa La Qua in Tokyo Dome - day chilling out here is a lot of fun! http://www.tokyo-dome.co.jp/e/laqua/spa.htm
Have fun : )
