Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Family Holiday

Customer Travel Tip: get the 2 day bus pass so you can go to all the free tourist places for free or discounted, try slip in meiji, hiroshima, nara and kyoto. USE OSAKA AS HOME BASE because it's close to everything

Liked: the free onsens which were free as part of the 2 day bus passes, i'd give spa world a miss because it's been westernised, if you go to the cheaper onsens you'll get a more authentic feel for what onsens are supposed to be like, you will also see more japanese people around

Disliked: the weather, it was freeeeeeezing. but i'm from aus so it might not be compared to those of you from other colder regions

Customer Travel Tip: If you are going to visit the aquarium, get the Kaiyu pass. Only a few hundred yen more than the regular ticket, it also gives you unlimited travel around the city for one day.

Liked: Very convenient for getting to Kyoto, Nara and Kobe. The aquarium was great. Loads of shops and restaurants.

Disliked: Maybe not as much to do as I hoped.
