Traveling in Japan was great. The travel company really did a great job of finding us all the activities we wanted to do while still staying within our travel budget. But I do wish that they had communicated more about what we would encounter during our trip. We needed a lot more cash than advertised (Japan is a cash economy) and I feel that we missed out on some opportunities that they could have clued us in on. But the tour guides they employed were top notch and did a great job of showing us around and explaining everything to us.
We stayed at a Monk's inn so that we got to attend a Buddhist ceremony and then also do some guided meditation with the Monk afterwards. This experience was one of the best that we took. It felt like we really got to see the spiritual side of Japan. We also went to a Tea Ceremony which we thoroughly enjoyed. Taking the food tour in Osaka was also great.
Spend more time in Kyoto and Hakone. Less time in Tokyo.
