Yesterday I bought my tickets to Japan. I will be flying into Osaka (KIX) but staying in Kyoto.
I really would like to see Tokyo, but lack of time and travel partners means I would rather do a little than do a lot and be totally overwhelmed on what is a vacation.
I will be in Kyoto for a full week, and will be arriving and leaving on Sunday in August. Still looking for hostels, so if anyone has any suggestions I am totally open to those.
I can’t believe I’m going to Japan!! This is one of the really cool things about living abroad that I will miss when I go home. Heck, who says this is the last time I’ll go abroad? Maybe I’ll get a job at a corporation that allows me to travel.
Sorry about the tangent there. Suggestions for places to stay in Kyoto or good day trips would be most helpful 🙂
Day 1 (Arrival) Stay in Osaka and see some sights there
Day 2 Arrive in Kyoto where I’ll sleep the rest of my nights, see Imperial Palace (if I can register my visit) and some other sights
Day 3: Day trip to Nara
Day 4 Day trip to Hiroshima if possible (See Peace Park and Atom bomb museum)
Day 5 Relax, go into Downtown Kyoto
Day 6… possibly take a midnight bus to Tokyo, spend the day there and take a bullet train home
Day 7: Go home, broke but happy!
