My First Trip to Japan
Itinerary: Tokyo and Kyoto My Map
I love Fodor’s basic phrases. I used it for traveling to France and Italy as well.
Never thought of this, but a useful guide on how to behave yourself. Most interesting one for me: bathrooms. Like China, bring tissue paper with you.
Tokyo to Kyoto transport
For transportation between the cities, I’m planning on taking the Nozomi Shinkansen bullet train. The train comes frequently, so I’ll get tickets day of at the Tokyo station. I’m only traveling to Kyoto on the Nozomi (the fastest train), so the JR Rail Pass doesn’t make sense for me. Next time perhaps!
