  The Chatter Box : Travel
Japan by Sophie-Louise on 9 March 2011 12:08pm
Hello all, Oh my goodness I haven't been on this site in so long! I thought I'd drop be and say hi!

I met my fiance on this site 7-8 years ago and we are getting married in May. Anyway I won't bore you with that... We are going to Japan for our honeymoon and were wondering if anyone had been and had some fun stories to share and could advise on places to visit! And also the best time of year to go? We aren't exactly lovers of extremely hot weather and don't want to arrive in typhoon season! Something comfortable for travelling.

We dusted off the Full Circle DVD and watched the Japan episode the other evening, definitely want to stay in a ryokan or family-run minshuku. We also really want to see the Kodo Drummers as my fiance has seen them in London before and loved it. Do they tour Japan often?

I also want to stay in a capsule like Michael did in 80 days for a night just for the experience, not sure my other half is so keen on that idea though...

Sorry this is long, but we would love to hear about any experiences and tips!

Hello Sophie!

I think Terry S went to Japan a couple of years ago - let's hope she drops in here soon (sorry for butting in, Terry!).

Japan is not a good idea for a honeymoon at the moment.
