But, you are likely to be there when the Clutch Show is on 26-28 May in Okayama.  I'll be at that as well as the normal time in May in Tokyo

Out of nowhere, it seems that our next trip will be to Japan. My wife happened to find a good price on tickets & 10 minutes later we booked.

2 adults 40s, 2 girls 3 & 7.

 We arrive into Tokyo on the 6th of April and fly out of Tokyo on the 18th. And thats all we have planned/confirmed at the moment. 

Well obviously want to break it down into something like three 4 day trips vs 12 days of Tokyo.

So....Any thoughts? What would you do with 2 weeks in Japan?

Thanks in advance.

You'd have to hit up Kyoto on a day trip. Mt Fuji on another. That's the obvious day trips out of the way.

Kyoto really can be 2-3 days itself, and then you can get to Osaka and other places from there.

I'd suggest 3 days in Kyoto, spend the rest in Tokyo.

More later, need to pack to get to Brisbane this way. Owe a guy an e-mail with suggestions also, so will get stuff together.

Okay, So let's go.

Akihabara is a must see at some point, it's "Electric Town" and Maid Cafe central over there.

Shibuya for it's famous crossing, just outside the JR station there. Also 109 for the most cutting edge women's fashion.
Lots of good bars in the area also.


UOBEI SUSHI - Shibuya Tokyo
24-8, 1F, Leisure Plaza Bld., Udagawa-cho, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan, 150-0042

Is in the area for the most crazy sushi train you'll ever experience


Cup Noodle Museum in Yokohama is worth a day trip if into noodles at all.

Head to Ueno JR station for the markets, and the most tight density of Denim shops anywhere. Hinoya and others there, 4 shops from memory.

I'd skip Harajuku, but it's still on everyone's lists. There's no Girls doing dress up there any more. Meiji Shrine is very much so worth visiting if you're in the area of Harajuku.


Yakitori Alley Shinjuku is worth a visit for a dinner, close to station and amazing food/experiences.

Any recommendations for hotels (or just what neighborhoods to stay in) for Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka?

Sorry for the thread revival, I will be in Asia from April to mid May of next year so thinking about going to Japan for a week or so.  Is there a big difference in price of jeans in Japan compared to the UK.

What area is best to stay in that is central to it all bars night life and a bit of shopping during the day don't mind bit of a walk.

If anyone's got recommendations for eating/drinking (or any other cool stuff to do) in Tokyo, Osaka, and/or Kyoto, I'd love to hear 'em! Especially looking for non-touristy (or not super touristy but still cool for foreigners) beer bars.

Osaka, I recommend an American owned Rock bar called "Cherry Bomb" in Shinsaibashi, near Namba.

I imagine if you're going to Osaka, you'll hit up Namba, because the new IH store is close by, along with Hinoya, and a couple of other stops I can't name off the top of my head after a few beers.

My favorite restaurant in Tokyo is Tatsukichi Shinjuku.

Thanks. Unfortunately we'll miss taco Tuesday but as we probably will be in Namba I'll check it out.

That's terrible, because the fish tacos are amazing!
