My wife and I will be travelling to Japan for 22days next April 2010. I was wondering if I can get some info from people, mainly things a tourist might not know normally (something not from website as there are heaps of people who have posted stuff on the forum here but a lot are repeats and we would like to avoid this if possible).
We have briefly researched some stuff and here are some of places we may visit (sorry for typo if there are any):
Maybe Nikko, Kamakura, Shitakawago & Matsumoto
Also how far in advance should be book accommodations? We are still trying to do where the main places to stay then work off from there to smaller places as one day trip (i.e. base in Tokyo and work around the surrounding province or Osaka and work around Kyoto Himeji etc)
If I could get some input about individual places and opinions, that would be great. (Please do not post the same info as it will greatly help us compile our research, thanks in advance).
