Exploring Japan's countryside? 3 Years, 5 Months ago
I'm trying to plan a trip in a couple of years when I go to japan on exchange with my university.
I wish to explore the rural side of japanese culture rather than focus on the city aspect that everyone becomes so fascinated with.
Where should I start? When would be the best time to do so?
If anyone could help, I would very much appreciate it.
Re:Exploring Japan's countryside? 3 Years, 5 Months ago
Well, I have a choice between these unoversitis; Chubu, Daito Bunka, Hiroshima, Kagoshima and Kanazawa.
I wish I could say that I'd have unlimited finances to explore the entirety of Japan, sadly I'm restricting myself to $40/per day of exploration. As I am unsure how far that would get me I wouldn't want tog get my hopes up.
As for season, I'd prefer going in winter....but what is there to do in winter?
