Hey there, hi to everybody,
I've been a tynan.com distant follower for quite some time now, and knowing about his passion for Japan I thought I'd ask a couple of things here, even more so now that SETT is rolling steady and allows easy discussion between the site's followers, who I suppose are like-minded and share his same interests.
So, I'll be staying in Japan for a week and a half minimum starting on Saturday, in Yokohama, for work. I'll have weekends off and possibly an additional week after I complete my job there, so let's say at least 5 days for myself: what can I visit in such short time? This opportunity has come only yesterday so I never really had time to think about what to do and how to organize a decent trip in the country, I only know I'll be spending at least a couple of days in Tokyo and that's it.
But there's much more to visit I guess. Osaka? Sapporo? Fukush...erm, better skip that. Any special place (from any point of view: nature, history, fun)?
And my biggest concern: since I don't want to spend all my money, what precautions should I take when looking for a motel/hotel and public transportation?
Anything else is warmly welcome :D
Thanks in advance to whomever will help out, cheers!
