51 days....

51 days until I leave for .jp. Tokyo, Kamakura, Hakone, Takayama, and Kyoto over about 12 days. The trip is heavily biased toward Kyoto since the Bakumatsu is my thing. Arashiyama/Togetsukyo, Mibu, Fushimi, Sanjo ohashi here I come.

I have been trying to make a real itinerary for the three days in Tokyo but TBH I’m probably going to be content with making sure I visit Yurakucho, Ginza, Ikebukuro, Akihabara, and see at least the Sakuradamon gate. Oh and the club Rocky Top to take in some Japanese inflected bluegrass.

I’m hoping my experience using this self guided tour booking agency is a good one and I can start making semiannual trips and leave some of the work to them. As much as I enjoy Europe there is just SO much more i want to visit in Japan. I’d kind of like to do a fall camping trip around Yamanashi and the Fuji Lakes some time…not a bit influenced by YuruCamp…
