Is this trip for you? QUIRKY. DELICIOUS. BUZZING.
Too expensive...I don't have the time off...I hate sushi...
That's it, we're done with excuses. In under two weeks this trip gives you the highlights and the hidden gems. The culture and the crazy. The ultra-modern and the historic. The scenery and the cities. And all the ramen, okonimiyaki, udon, katsu, yakatori and sake your fat pants can handle (you packed those, right?). This is your wake-up call - Japan is waiting.
