well, we are off to japan from september 30-october 20! i really wanted to go in the spring to see the cherry blossoms, but i am sure there will be no shortage of beauty in october. i hear the changing leaves are quite beautiful as well. we are planning to take some side trips to kyoto for sure, and maybe osaka or perhaps somewhere in the north.
if anyone has any recommendations for accommodations (under $150/night) or stores, or just general travel tips, i'm all ears! i'm working on learning some phrases... based on the crazy maps i've come across so far (my jaw dropped when i saw the superfuture maps!) i think "can you show me where ___ is" will be the most important thing to learn!
