The missus and I are in Japan now and about halfway through our trip. Have done Tokyo, Tateyama-Kurobe alpine route and Kyoto. Still in Kyoto waiting whilst the missus gets a maiko photo shoot done. Travelling to Osaka later today. Still have Hiroshima & Miyajima and Yokohama before going home. Highlights so far are driving go-karts down the streets of Tokyo, Robot restaurant in Tokyo, snow on the alpine route, ninja restaurant in kyoto, suntory whisky tour in kyoto and 2nd hand shopping. Found a backpack and a g-shock watch cheap. My tip for tokyo would be to get the 3-day subway pass from the airport for 1500 yen, there was a link on ozbargain not long ago. Does anyone know of any other live themed shows in Osaka, Hiroshima or Yokohama?
