Some good friends of mine asked me to make a post about what to see and do for a two week trip to Japan. I will slowly add to this post as I come up with new material. So this is a work in progress. But I wanted to share it as it comes together.
The Asakusa area of Tokyo is a must-see in my opinion. It has Japan`s oldest temple and nearby her oldest bar. If you get bad results at the temple, you can drown your sorrows at the bar! The bar survived repeated bombings during World War 2. Perhaps you should stay at the bar? Asakusa Station is apparently the oldest train station in Japan as well. This was told to me on a rickshaw tour I took. I recommend the rickshaw tours. You can choose how long you do one for. The guides are very kind, personable as you would expect, they know a lot about the area and inspite of living in Japan for over 30 years, even I learned a lot. The guides speak English. Kana was my guide and she was great! Here is my video on YouTube of Asakusa. Please subscribe to our I am Hakone channel at YouTube to watch the latest videos!
You can certainly stay at one of our guest houses and go into Tokyo, but you may want to stay closer to Asakusa.
