Travel Blog – Japan Itinerary Update, Final Draft
Late last year, I posted an itinerary for my trip to Japan on my blog. I thought it might be time to give an update, now that time is quickly drawing close for me to head out.
Things have been rearranged slightly in order to accommodate a climb of Mount Fuji to watch the sunrise from the top. On top of my itinerary, I’m wanting to leave you with a list of things I’ll be wanting to do while I’m in Japan. I have it planned out so that I know what cities I’ll be in on which days, but I don’t have specific days planned out in order to be a little more flexible and give myself the ability to adjust based on how tired I am on those days.
I’ve built a kind of guide map on google maps which I will be using to pick out places I want to visit while in the field in August. I’ve got locations colour coded based on how easy I think it will be to visit certain places in the same day. You can find the link to my map here.
The idea behind this is to be as transparent as possible during the planning stage of this, to show what I’ve done and how I’ve done it in hopes of learning from my own experiences while giving others the ability to offer input on my methods of madness.
