For any Tokyo and Kyoto experts, and anyone who has been to Japan, I am looking for help on planning my trip! I know Tokyo is a very expensive city, so I would like to know:
- where to go and eat sushi, ramen and other japanese food that is exceptionally good but at a good price.
- which neighbourhoods are not to miss
- when to go to the fish market
-where to buy in advance the tube tickets (i was told they are cheaper if you buy them in advance)
-recommended transport for both the city and to go to Kyoto
- what not to miss in both city
-how to get to mount Fuji..?
I have so many questions! basically, i would like a rough pln of the trip based on these criterias if you can help. this is the first trip I am planning on my own and would like it to go really well!
Also, are there festivals in that period? (roughly the third week of August)? I can't miss the Harajuku girls, which I know are during Saturdays if Im not mistaken.
Someone also told me there is a starbucks up high on a skyscraper from which you can see the whole of Tokyo.
PLEASE someone help me! any tip will be taking into consideration... climate (probably terribly hot), restaurants, neighbourhoods, festivals, markets etc.
I havn't decided where to stay yet, but i would prefer my three (or four) daytrip to be divided into areas (neighbourhoods close to each other with attractions and "musts") as to not waste too much time going from one side of town to another.
I thank you in advance!!!
