After doing a cheap trip to Italy last year, we were determined to do it for Japan this year. A LOT of people told us that Japan is extremely costly. Yes it is, but with a little planning, we covered Japan over 8 days for under 1 lakh per person. This included our flights, visas, stay, transportation, food, shopping and just about everything.
There have been more than 300 flavors of Kit Kats in Japan since 2000. “KitKat” started being associated with the phrase “Kitto Kattsu”, translated as “You will surely win,” and were sent as a good luck charm for students approaching exams.
I remember seeing a picture of Shirakawa-go some years ago. I was so marvelled by it that I decided that Shirakawa-go will be a must visit when I ever travel to Japan. And this year it came true 🙂
