Travelling to Japan for 2 weeks : Budget Travel Guide

12 places/cities in 2 weeks? Yes, you heard me. It is doable and I did it. There are people out there, they just do more than me. I can say, I am pretty laid back.

1. Tokyo
2. Hakone
3. Hakata
4. Nagasaki
5. Osaka
6. Miyajima
7. Hiroshima
8. Himeji
9. Kobe
10. Nara
11. Nagoya
12. Kyoto

4 nights in Tokyo 2 nights in Hakata 8 nights in Osaka
Osaka is my base to explore the surrounding  7 area/cities - Miyajima, Hiroshima, Himeji, Kobe, Nara, Nagoya and Kyoto.
Flew in to Haneda Airport at 10:30pm. I was worried that we cannot make it to take the last train to our first accommodation. Japanese Immigration was all good, easy breezy and we all done at 11:30pm. Quickly to the train station right outside the departure hall.
