Going to Japan to see sakura (1)

Last week, my friend send me the message that it has been one year we meet each other. We knew each other online and decide to go to Japan together last year. It’s the perfect period from March to April to see Sakura in  Japan every year. The exact time and location could be checked online.

This is our travel plan. We spend 10 days there. We went to Osaka, Nara, Kyoto, Tokyo and Hakone. Someone advised to buy JR pass but we figure out it was not convenient. There are more than one subway and train company in Japan. If you buy JR pass, you just can take JR line unless you pay an extra fee. However, if you travel around the whole Japan, such as going to Osaka first and coming back in the end, it is a good choice to save money.

Day 1-2 Osaka

Day 2  Nara

Day 3-4 Kyoto

Day 5 Hakone

Day 6-10 Tokyo


Day 1 Tourist attraction: Osaka Castle Park, Osaka Castle, Tsutenkaku Tower, Hep Five ferris wheel, Shitennoji, Kuromon Ichiba Market

I booked airbnb in Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo. The apartment owner in Osaka is so considerable. He prepared everything you need such as toothbrush, toothpaste, face mask, milk tea and even makeup cotton. The name is shinsaibashiCentral Dotonbori. It is near the city center and also convenient to go anywhere because it close to subway station.
