Hi All. My new husband and I are starting to plan a trip to Japan, a destination on our bucket list.
I need some assistance from seasoned Japan travelers to help make the most of our time there.
Initially I've found an 8 day guided tour with Virgin doing Tokyo, Mount Fuji e.t.c. It seems to be between £1,600 - £2,000 each dependent upon the month of the trip which includes flight, transfers/transport, hotels, food and entry fees including an English speaking guide. I've heard that Japan is really expensive so to me this seemed a bit of a bargain for Virgin.
We want a fairly stress free time and as we don't speak a word of Japanese, we think that this pre-organised trip would be the best thing to do. There is a free roaming day which I would love to go to somewhere Sanrio/Hello Kitty themed as I am a huge fanatic. I have heard that Sanrio world isn't as good as the Hello Kitty theme park for adults. Thoughts?
We love oriental food as well as Sushi so food isn't really a problem.
Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated as this would be a once in a lifetime trip for us and want it to be as happy and memorable as possible. Many thanks!
