I’ve been planning a vacation rather adventure trip to Japan. My husband’s not so keen cuz apparently English isn’t yet spoken everywhere but that’s what interests me…the cultural difference and it’s almost like getting lost and exploring a country. I’d love to do that.

So any tips on traveling to the far east? We’re on the east coast.

Japan would be a wonderful place to have an adventure! Although I have some experience in Asia, I know absolutely no Japanese and it was quite easy for me to navigate Tokyo. There are English signs everywhere and if you have a guidebook, you are all set. It’s also a very safe country. The other parts of Japan might be more of a challenge in terms of the language barrier but you can hire a guide or take a tour for those parts. I think Japan would be perfect for the kind of trip you describe – it almost is like another world. Even though I’ve always been interested in Japanese culture, going there was like stepping onto another planet. A high tech but culturally rich planet with interesting things to discover and taste at every corner.

Sounds great! I’m keen on visiting Kyoto but after spending over 4 cups of tea (i can’t stand coffee) and 4hrs on the internet I couldn’t really find any flight from NYC to Kyoto. So any suggestions cuz I plan on a 4-5 day trip and want to spend more time in Kyoto, Hiroshima than Tokyo.

Thank you for sharing 🙂

I think your best bet is to fly into Tokyo and then take the high speed bullet train (Shinkansen) to Kyoto. I think it’s 1.5 hours at most. Don’t count out Tokyo either – it is a very interesting city. I felt like I was seeing technology five years into the future.
