a tiny note
I'm assuming you've already come to the conclusion that Japan is a pretty awesome place, and yes, you are absolutely in the right. Now, in a way, these pages are the electronic equivalent of what you would get if we met at a bar and, maybe after a few drinks, you asked me to do a quick run down of suggestions on where to stay, what to do, and all the other things that may or may not be part of an exceptionally stellar experience when travelling to Japan.
This means I have no ambition to provide an encompassing guide to all things Japan — you will notice a ton of things missing and your opinions on the stuff I've included may differ. Instead, it's a straight off reflection of my own personal taste.
