Our Vacation to Japan...

In 2009 we decided to take a 3 week trip to Japan. Since we prefer to sightsee at our own pace, we made the decision to plan and book the trip ourselves. We did a lot of research and planning ahead of time to help maximize our time over there. This effort paid off and we had the trip of a lifetime.

We would like to share our adventure and hope that our experience will be helpful to you. We should mention that we do not speak a word of Japanese so don't let that deter you from visiting this wonderful and amazing country.


We have broken the information into sections based on the cities we visted as well as providing some general information.
