- About the trip:
- G'day I'm Thomas, a Chemical Engineer and Metallurgist from Australia. I currently live in New Zealand and will be visiting Japan for the very first time August 8-26 2016.
I have visited china before for one month and found the culture to be very different from what I knew in Australia, and I am excited to experience the different culture in Japan.
I am flying in and out of Narita airport and have booked cancellable accomodation for my trip through booking.com (mostly capsule/hostel, but a ryokan for Koya San!). The current plan is to visit the places listed using a JR pass. I will spend a few days in Tokyo at the start and end of my trip. Here is a link to the rough template I will be following!
I am particularly keen to meet young locals (especially english speakers as I haven't learnt any Japanese -_- ), find great places to photograph in nature and the cities, and experience a new culture.
Please message me with any ideas or suggestions (I have a rough idea of things I'd like to see/do from Japan Guide/Levart, but I'd love to hear local suggestions!), or if you would like to meet up and do touristy things :)
Outside of my trip please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Australia, New Zealand, any english questions or anything else really!
