Realising that the US visa isn’t going to be coming through any time soon with the jobsworth’s continuing to balls things up and cause further delays, I figured that rather than all my savings just slipping away on things I don’t really want or need (you know, bills and stuff…), I’d make the most of having an abundance of time on my hands + cash in my pocket to go travel somewhere I’ve always fancied. As much as Ireland + Wales were a good getaway, they didn’t really feel like holidays being so close to home!
So, 3 weeks in Japan should just about do it! Flying out on 6th September until 27th September and nabbing a Japan Rail Pass to zoom out of Tokyo to Mt. Fuji, Kyota, Osaka, Nara + Hiroshima, as well as north up to Nikko, Sendai + Matsushima (plus maybe Kakunodate + Akita) on the ‘shinkansen’ – bullet trains 😀
That’s the plan anyways, but I’m open to ideas if anyone has suggestions on places to go and things to do in Japan!
