Unfortunatly, we only went to Tokyo - we were going to be going to Kyoto and Osaka, but the organisers forgot to look into costs of the JR rail pass/shinkansen. Hopefully the next trip they'll be a bit more organised though =](Original post by misslaurabee)
Whereabouts in Japan did you go? When I went we visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara, so a mixture of city and slightly more rural(ish) areas, which were lovely.
...or just paranoid?
