Two of us are planning on a 3 week tour of Japan at the end of July 2010. We want to see rural Japan and the cities and towns. We want to experience real Japan and although we want to see the tourist attractions, we don't want to fall into tourist traps. We are planning to book everything indendently and travel mainly by shinkansen. And we are doing it on a budget.
Where do you recommend we go? Any suggestions welcome.
Thanks very much
