8 Days Japan Itinerary

8 Days Japan Itinerary

Our 8 days Japan Itinerary was full of amazing experiences. It was the schatje’s first trip to Japan and my fourth. 90 percent of what we did was also new to me despite having been there before. It just means that Japan has a lot to offer. I divided the trip into two parts, around Osaka and Tokyo. We also wanted to ride the Shinkansen from Osaka to Tokyo which takes 2.5 hours, also a first for me. It was expensive but definitely an experience. This is the schatje’s second foray into Asia after the Philippines. I thought it was a really nice place to explore for in Asia. We plan to visit at least one other Asian country whenever we go to the Philippines. It was also made possible¬†with the good flight deal we had with Finnair and Cebu Pacific to the Philippines

We had days that were really busy on this 8 Day Japan Itinerary but we also had easygoing days. The stress on our feet from walking so much had to be eased. We averaged 17,000 steps a day. It was a really good trip. We were glad that the weather was nice the whole time we were there. It was mostly sunny and we only had one day of rain.
