I actually came back last Saturday, but been so out of it since then so am just updating now..
The trip was definitely everything I expected and more, from all the different kinds of stores and cafes in bustling Tokyo to the lush tranquil scenery in Kyoto, particularly the gardens and temples. There was just too much to see there so we only had time to cover the highlights of each place. I say 'we' because I brought along my younger brother. He doesn't have a DA account but is a musician.
Anyways, the highlights of my 2 week trip:
Week One: Tokyo
- Shopping in Shinjuku Harajuku (Kiddyland, Takeshita Street), Akihabara (Electronics but I also saw plenty of Pokemon merchandise!), Asakusa (More souvenirs)
- Tokyo Sky Tree: Tower which allowed nice views of all of Tokyo
- Maricar Racing (Go carts): https://maricar.com/en/akihabara.html
- Took a tour to see Mt Fuji (It was very clear that day so I may post a photo)
Week Two: Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima/Miyajima
- Saw the temples: Ara
