I need ideas...

Im looking for ideas for my last trip in Japan Jan 21-22. I have been to Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Kumamoto, Mt. Fuji, Mt. Aso and Tokyo.

I dont want to see anymore Temples or Shrines. I have been to some hot springs already. I dont ski or snowboard.
I'm looking for something fun and unique for my last trip.
Any suggestions would be appreciated


For something really unique, have you thought about Naoshima? It is an island populated by numerous art installations capped with a James Bond villain style Museum, Bennesse Art Site.

We have a forum posts on Naoshima already, so you should check them out if you are still using a JR Pass.

It's a strange thing, but many of the fun and unique experiences I've had in Japan are as much down to meeting interesting people as it is the actual place. You could immerse yourself in a side of Japanese culture you like (either in Tokyo or elsewhere) for the remaining few days and see what happens!

Hope this helps!
