Hello, How is everyone? First time poster on JREF, see the strong expat community here so hope to get some help from you all. What can a single person do for a week in Japan?? Would a backpacking trip be suggested? Please explain as talking to a first timer here, not well versed with any location based technicalities. Which locations can fit in a single weeks plan of stay? I want to do a location "hop" (Flight -> Start -> X -> Y -> Z -> Stop -> Flight). I found these traveller experiences: My 6-Day Solo Travel in Japan: Tips, Costs & Itinerary for Filipinos the viewing deck: 7 Days Wandering Solo in Summer Japan 7 Days on a Budget!! - Japan Forum - TripAdvisor Tips for Planning Your First Solo Trip to Tokyo, Japan Can someone comment on the above? Some say couchsurfing is good, while others say that "cheap" hotels better. Personally I seek to visit all the famous shinto temples and any landmarks, if necessary. This will be on a budget of course. Thank you and hoping to hear from you all.
