Our trip to Japan was a short lived but enlightening experience. It was my first vacation without famuly and I felt incredibly comfortable and safe with just one friend the entirety of my trip.
Our flight was about 27 hours there and 22 back with a stop in China on the way there. When we arrived we took 1 day to get familiar with the local area we were to be staying at. We stayed at an Air BnB with that our wonderful host Ken drove us to. We began to just soak in the local sights, housing, conmveince stores, etc. Make sure you check out how their franchise stores compare to your local ones! 7/11 is an amazing juxtaposition.
