I would like to go to Japan for my honeymoon next year - however we would be there over Golden Week and with all the comments on the website about travelling being so bad - I'm beginning to feel a bit more sceptical about going.
Is travel all that bad - particularly if you book well in advance?
Are there any plus sides to Golden Week such as festivals etc?
Do the touristy places (outside Tokyo) feel overcrowded?
I would very much appreciate some advice - I wouldn't want to visit Japan when it's at its relative "worse".
