I really loved Osaka, and since I know about it and have visited I think it would be wiser to stick with something I know. If I went back to Japan on holiday next year I would definitely visit Osaka again, but I would certainly like to explore other regions of Japan.

I'd really need to research which is best for me, in terms of prices, job prospects etc. If I could get a decent job, then I'd be happy mostly anywhere decent, but I'd really love one in Osaka. My Japanese is quite poor at the moment so I'm hoping to improve that in the coming year.

I know what you mean! I think I haven't been and then I remember:
Japan October 2010 Part Two - YouTube

I don't know how I'm gonna get back there now though,and who with. There might be a Japanese person at uni but I can't exactly say ''Oi,give me a trip!''

I could always come up with a plan in the meantime though. Hopefully I'll get to actually speak Japanese next time!

I'm hoping that next year I'll be going there finally. It will take almost all my saving but it will be so worth it.

I want to go at least to Tokyo and Osaka. I'm not sure what can be done in just a week

Only a month, eh? It's been 13 years since I returned from teaching English in Japan, and I still have so many memories of my time there! I remember it far better than the more recent years when I came back to my ordinary hum-drum life.

I’ve been there once and it was awesome. All the places were so beautiful and also colourful. I’ll be visiting there again with my family real soon.

I have been to Okinawa at the end of May of 2014

Really pretty good place to have a trip.

I went to Japan in 2009 and blogged every day. I took my son who was interested in Japan. He's now there for seven weeks, learning Japanese. I tried to get him to blog his trip, with no success. My teen doesn't take his dad's advice ;(
