I am looking for some advice. I have friends coming over in August to visit. I live on Sado Island in the Sea of Japan. If you don't already know it is really beutiful and has lots of amazing cultural attractions. My friends seem hell bent on going to Kyoto, but I am worried about the heat and humidity (they are Scottish!). Also they are only here for one week. We also have to go to Tokyo - we are going to Summer Sonic. I feel like I am being selfish, but I also don't want to pay a fortune for shinkansen tickets to spend two sweating like in maniac, when they could see lots of cool stuff here on Sado and then head to Tokyo in a more relaxed fashion.
Thoughts, ideas, appreciated,
