Suggested Itinerary
Eight weeks of Japan Travel plans in photos
For people who hesitate on how to make the most of the site you may follow the Suggested Itinerary guide below, which breaks down the entire collection into a rather extensive, but none the less interesting eight weeks of traveling Japan ( through pictures in this case ). Follow through the regions to any depth you like, probably the best idea if you're up for visiting the site more than once is to actually break down the list into eight occasions. But if you have already made up your mind on what you liked and what you didn't really cared about, you may as well skip some parts. After all the whole point is to be entertained...

Osaka - The heart of Kansai, and probably the second most important city of Japan, the lively and modern Osaka is a one-of-a-kind modern merchant city with an attitude. The most famous historic sight is the Osaka castle which stands right in the middle of the city, equally far from the business complexes and the busy station of Umeda ( north ) and the unbelievably vibrant entertainment districts of Namba, Ebisubashi and Dotonbori ( south ). Also an unforgettable sight is the amazingly well preserved and still functional retro entertainment district, Shinsekai ( New World ) which hosts one of the icons of the city, the Tsutenkaku tower, the Tenpozan bay area, and the serpentine walkway through the three-story high Osaka Aquarium.

Nara - Relaxed parks and temples of a historic city no grade schooler will miss the class trip for. Home of the world's largest wooden structure the Nandai Mon gate, and one of the biggest Buddha statues, at Daibutsu Den, all in an amazing huge park with a definitely one-of-a-kind atmosphere of ( sacred ) Japanese deer walking about by the side of residents and visitors, hunting for anyone who purchased them some senbei ( crackers ).

for Tourists who stay (shopping and dining). Ginza, Tokyo Tower...

More famous town centers in Tokyo, both historic and modern, with the elite shopping and entertainment district of Ginza, which name would probably ring a bell to anyone, the Tokyo Tower and the view it offers on the city, the innermost of Tokyo, Yurakucho station and the Tokyo Forum in the Marunouchi district. ( With but a glimpse on Mori Tower, the icon of the (in)famous high-tech business and tourist center, Roppongi. )

Tokyo Scenes 6 - Tokyo Shop and Fashion Guide
Clothing and food stores in Jiyugaoka, Shimokita and Koenji.

Open air town centers with great atmosphere, a different view on how Tokyo can be much more cozier if you take the effort to find the right place for you. Shimokita is the young oriented small center for fashion, music, clubs and theater or just hanging around aimlessly, browsing a much more calm neighborhood than of the downtown's Koenji with its atmospheric shotengai of small shops, restaurants and cafes to the north and the PAL avenue shopping arcade to the south. And Jiyugaoka, the most popular among people who don't mind higher prices for the right surroundings, its gourmet cuisine, fashion or home decoration.

Otaru - One of the northernmost cities of Japan, Otaru in Hokkaido gives off a charm of a colonization-era port town so well that it already became a must-see tourist destination.
