First time visiting Japan

Hello, we are planning to visit Japan this August starting from Tokyo for 2 weeks with one week land and one week on a cruise.


1) are you able to proive recommendation itinerary for our one week land tour using JR Pass?

2) would you recommend 2 weeks land tour with JR Pass versus one week cruising?

3) we know approx hotel cost, how expensive is food cost?

4) we have heard many sight seeing sites require entrance fees, are there any travel package "passport" type, similar to JR Pass to facilitate tourists?

Thank you!

Hello there,

1.) We have a sample 7 day itinerary for you here.

2.) It would completely depend on what places you would include and visit.

3.) You can make it as expansive as you like. Budget hotels start at ~4,000yen/a night while you can eat for a full day for 1,000yen if you buy low cost food. The sky is the limit from there.

4.) Sometimes there are local packages available like the Osaka amazing pass but noting that is valid nation wide. Maybe if someone can organize one, it would be a great product to sell.

Hope this helps,
