what makes you think synth and I don't want otaku weird
10 days should be enough time for Tokyo plus one other. Open to suggestions for the second spot.
not very original but Kyoto is a must-do as 2d city. Plus you can stop in Hakone on the way for some Piola museum and onsen action
Go to Coccinella Osaka!
Hakone is now off limits - certain parts of Hakone are now closed due local earthquakes and volcanic activity...
Well, most of Hakone and the area around Hakone are still open, I think. At the moment, it's just the area around Owakudani, isn't it?
Correct, I did mention `certain` areas, but I just wanted to warn of the fact, in case anyone was unaware. I guess `off limits` is a personal decision...
As an aside, has Omotesando Koffee exploded in popularity recently? It was super crowded with what looked to be mostly tourists last time I went
yep, 99% tourists. Also, their coffee isn't that great, but the baked custard is pretty tasty.
Thinking of changing my trip to have a full 2 weeks in Japan, rather than detouring to Seoul for 4 days. How much time can one reasonably spend in Tokyo?
ayyyy holla at me, I'm in Tokyo from the 10th to the 17th of June! So down for karaoke, maybe we can visit the ~space sword~
just the city i'd say 5 days.. 6 days tops. unless you intend to do very heavy shopping.
your experience in seoul will likely be very similar to your experience in tokyo. they're both very similarly structured urban metropolises. besides the obvious differences (food, language, cultural landmarks, etc.), they're really REALLY similar... the korean subway system is based off the japanese subway system.
I feel like a four day detour to Seoul would be worth it if you're already in Tokyo for a week. Maximize cultural exposure!
Remember the Studio Ghibli Museum!
