Hi everyone! I know this question has been asked several times, but I would really value any help, information and recommendations that you could provide me.
I'm planning to make a travel to Japan for about one week in mid-August (it would be my first time ever in Japan or Asia), just before heading to China to study chinese for a year thanks to a scholarship I was given.
So I have been researching about which are the best places I should go in this short visit on Japan. I narrowed the sleeping options to hotels in Tokyo and in Kyoto... so far, I have read the some great places in Tokyo are:
Tokyo Skytree – Tokyo Tower
Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office
But which of them would you really recommend me to visit? I've hear that Tokyo Disneyland is really cool... what do you think about it?
And about Kyoto, what are the must-see places?
Is there any other near city you would recommend me to visit?
Is the JR-Pass really useful for a trip like this one?
Thanks a lot in advance for any information/tip you could provide me.
I would be in a kind of budget, so budget travel options would be highly appreciated hehe...
Best regards for all of you!
