I’ll be there for about 2.5 weeks - I’m very excited.

Has anyone else been? What were your standout moments?

My very rough plan is to spend a few days in Tokyo, go to a ryokan/onsen in Hakone, then go to Nagoya, and possibly Suzuka for the Japanese Grand Prix. From there it would be to Kyoto and Osaka, but I don’t think I’d have time for much else - I do like to spend a couple of days in places rather than be on the move everyday.

I figure there’s a lot of old, historical stuff I can see and great natural views (i.e. Mt. Fuji) but if anyone else has had great experiences anywhere in Japan, I would like to know since the only thing that’s set in stone is when I arrive/depart Japan.
