Over the past two weeks, michaelhudson and blueskygirl simultaneously submitted a wealth of new Japan reviews and photos. In fact, between them, the count is more than 500 photos, 10 reviews, and (practically) a partridge in a ginkgo tree. More importantly, they offer great tips for places to stay and things to do, plus an answer to the age-old question of how to get to Tokyo from Narita Airport.
Check out Blueskygirl Does Tokyo for the complete account of her November trip, a smattering of helpful tips like when to cover up your tattoos, and advice for that Narita Airport Quandary. All that and more highlights, from Tokyo DisneySea to Vermeer.
For even more news from Japan, see michaelhudson’s growing gallery and list of reviews, from Kyoto to Matsumoto. He takes on a mountain, the Pacific, and the potentially dangerous fugu of a hostel owner—so while his photos may paint a serene scene, this active traveler is proof positive that Japan is never boring.
