My trip to Japan is only days away

It is not long before I go now, less than three days. My trip to Japan is only days away. Now I just need to get packed, print all my tickets and not miss my flight. I have never missed a flight before so I don’t think that will be a problem. Now I probably jinxed it.

Shibuya Crossing on a trip to Japan

Shibuya Crossing. World’s most busiest intersection.

Here is a movie my friend made after our first trip to Japan by the way:

That was almost three years ago. Time flies. I still remember that trip like it was yesterday. My first time in Japan. It was an instant love affair. Now I will return for my third visit to this great country.

I still don’t have all of the trip planned out yet. I’d rather make plans as I travel. I know for sure I will be in Tokyo the first three days. Then a friend of mine is coming to visit, he lands in Osaka, so I guess I will have to go there. That is no problem of course, I haven’t been to Osaka yet, and would love to go there. I am thinking we go to Kyoto and Osaka while he’s in Japan. He is only staying for five days. Maybe Kobe if there is time. We should get a steak.

When he leaves I have four days before Fuji Rock Festival. The island of Shikoku sounds tempting, so does Niigata or Gifu. Only time will show.

Lineup for Fuji Rock Festival

Fuji Rock Festival will be my last weekend in Japan, after that I have another four days before leaving on friday 31st. The last days will probably be spent in Tokyo.

As always there is so much to see and not nearly enough time. I don’t want to be stressing and rushing around either, after all it is my holiday. I’ll try to see as much as possible in a leisurely pace instead.

Keep following my blog for more updates from my trip. Next one will be on Saturday, the day of my departure.

    How exciting! I’ve really enjoyed all your previous posts about Japan :) Thanks for sharing – I like the way you break it up into small stories/anecdotes! (I should learn from that :P, I always try to describe a 3 week trip in one blog post with a billion photos – is it any wonder I often don’t get around to that?!)

    Looking forward to reading about your upcoming trip, have an amazing time!!

    Hey, have a great time! And yes, the trick is to balance all the hectic travelling with some relaxation, as always we want to do more than we have time for. It always happens to me and yet, there are so many more stories and anecdotes from all the frenzy than you’d have if you only relaxed in a remote location. But yes, try for both. And keep writing your blogs, I’m also excited for you :)

      Thank you very much. I will try to find a right balance between frenzy and relaxation. I usually manage to do it. I don’t have to see everything anyway, just another reason to return to what I missed :-)
