      1. I'm happy that I have helped you and inspired you to go back to Japan.

    3. I have never been to Japan because I read it`s very expensive there but maybe I should start saving up and travel there.Thanks for sharing

      1. Well every place is "expensive" in a way depending on how you budget. We got to go around Kyoto for 5 days in less than 200 dollars.

    4. Wow! This is the most comprehensive list I've seen! You have something for every kind of traveler. Sight seeing/landscapes, temples, architecture and some fun spots for tourists. Great guide

      1. You should come visit Japan Cendu. These are just some of the great places you could visit. Hopefully I could come back soon for the 3rd installment of my Japan series.

    5. It looks like a beautiful country, I can see why you are still thinking about your trip to it!

    6. Sounds like a great trip! Thanks for sharing!

    7. 22 days in Japan, that is one awesome adventure. We hope to visit Japan one day.

    8. Japan is such a beautiful place and you've done such a comprehensive job of showing what it's like.If i ever go, I know I'll spend a lot of time taking in the scenery

    9. Looks like you had a great time in Japan. My little sister is going this month and I am so excited for her. Will send her this link.

      1. I hope my articles would help her in her trip to Japan.

    10. It looks like a very interesting and fun 23 day itinerary. Have only been in Japan for 24hrs. Was as a stop over as a flight attendant but would love to do longer. Thanks for sharing.

      1. You'd love Japan. I hope you could stay longer next time.

    11. as always this looks really amazing!! I love your trips and I feel like I can live through them with your posts!

    12. a beautiful journey in pictures

    13. Looks like you are a wanderlust. How do you manage with time :D That's a very detailed and pictorial post!
