Less than two weeks now before we hop on the plane again and head for Japan.
See the pic of our travel agent below - it used to a a movie theatre.
We popped in today to pay for our JR Rail Passes. Two weeks for two people cost just over AU$1100 . Supposedly that's considerably cheaper than paying for individual tickets (on the bullet train at least).
All the planning is starting to come together. Our first accommodation is booked - the Palace Side Hotel in Kyoto - this place is a serious bargain compared to the other options I've seen so far and gets a very good ranking on Tripadvisor to boot. We got a twin room with kitchenette for 8925JPY per night! Saves on food too this way
