    My only regret going to Japan is not bringing more pocket money.

    I'm going to Japan for 10 days and was hoping somebody could help me on my itinerary, What I'm interested in is:
    - big cities,
    - small temples,
    - beaches,
    - nightlife,
    - dining,
    - music,
    - adventure, nature, culture, hiking, festivals, shopping.

    My dates are 22th June- 4th July. Our budget is around $4500 for 2 people including food, transport (excluding domestic flight as we were lucky to book cheap flights already), accomodation etc. but can stretch it out if necessary

    lol its your responsibility to do the itinerary, we are just here to suggest something not that all of it should be provided by the people here. and 4500 usd for 10 days is way too much for me, i can live with that for 3-5 months in Japan.

    One region that is severely underrated in travel but I definitely recommend is the southern region of Kyushu. It’s often overlooked ky usually everyone goes to Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo which are located in the central and northern regions respectively. Think of it as the Mindanao of Japan but Kyushu, like Mindanao, is really a great experience trust me. Expect a lot of farms, woodlands, fields, mountains and abandoned houses ky its a province but even their “small” cities make Cebu feel smaller haha

    Fukuoka, Nagasaki, Kagoshima (Diri ko ga work), Kumamoto and Miyazaki are the cities I would recommend.

    Fukouka - Ichiran Ramen main branch, shopping, giant buddhas (sleeping buddha, wooden buddha), nightlife (Nakasu area), home of the Tonkotsu Ramen (pareha style yushoken), hakata bijin (diri kuno ila pina ka gwapa haha)

    Nagasaki - atomic bomb museum and peace park, hui ten bosch (dutch style town), mount inasa, and Hashima island abandoned mining island gi feature siya sa James bond (lisod e adto have not been)

    Kumamoto - kumamoto castle, lake ezu, higo temple, Sakuranobaba (local food and souvenirs), and the Japanese black bear you can find them sa wild even sa streets lol

    Miyazaki - heiwadai koen park nindot ang statue, udo shrine naa siya sa pangpang dapit sa dagat nindot jd promise! Naa pd mga wild horses. Takachiho waterfalls

    Kagoshima (my place) - nindot kaayo kaon diri best quality meat sa Japan and cheaper siya compared to all major cities sa Japan. Shopping, Mount Sakurajima volcano, kirishima hot springs.

    Tips lng pd:
    - dont buy from Vending machines unless no choice trust me even mga Japon di kaayo mo palit dira ky mahal
    - you can save more from buying at MaxValu or Don Quijote but in Kyushu naa Grocery pangan ABC mart mas barato pjd daghan sd Pinoy ngadto
    - There are really really cheap hotels in Kyushu, Mystays for example murag 2.5k php per night for 2 people, dira ko ma tog kung gikan inom n di na ka uli haha
    - If wa jd mo arte pede Internet/Manga cafe mo ma tulog naa siya separate rooms and a pillow nya ofc naa pc and mangas free drink dispenser pd shared lng ang banyo n maka dungog ka sa hagok sa imo silingan na cubicle.
    - For transpo naa JR Shinkansen pass good for the whole Kyushu region. 7k php ang price for 1 week ride all you want. Worth it siya imho
    If not then naa pd buses and local trains they take longer but are cheaper.
    - Food, try the specialty of each city lng you can search it sa google. ex. tonkotsu ramen for Fukuoka and kagoshima beef for kagoshima cheaper and better than Kobe beef imho
    Also naa pd whole Kyushu specialty food like kurbota (black pig), katsuodon (tuna sashimi and rice) and for the adventurous tori sashi (raw chicken, its clean but gonna be a no for me bro)
    - Nightlife i recommend darts bars ky maka mingle ka sa locals, Kyushu people are very friendly and surprisingly sociable maskin di ka english og tarong mo sturya jd sila naa pd Yatai Mura silag bbq2 style sa ato kilid ra sa street and also izakayas (bar and food)

    Long post sorry, but yeah mao toh my recommendation for your next travel to Japan.
    I would say though na better if Kyushu would be for your second trip sa Japan para naa ka experience lng with Japan travel.

    okay pud ang kyuushuu, and i agree nga underrated siya. siguro because imho mura mura ang atmosphere sa cebu, duol dagat, chillax ang mga taw. stayed near fukuoka yahoo dome for work around 10 years ago. i didn't know nga ang ichiran came from fukuoka, but sa may nishijin hakata ramen ko ga frequent if i feel the urge for ramen. lami sab ang imo sochu sa fukuoka. ang akong comment lang sa fukuoka is wala kaayo train, so buses mostly ang mass transport.

    I would agree that there are a lot of prefectures and cities in Japan that Cebuanos should explore other than Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Sapporo, etc. I would also agree that their small cities far from Honshu are still advanced in terms of technologically and infrastructures.

    Avoid commercial restaurants that target foreigners. Use Google Maps or other apps to find low-key places that offer quality for the buck. I tend to zero in on food places that look like our local karenderias. Here, they are usually small businesses owned by old couples that try to survive. In so doing, you can save money and help the elderly. The food is delicious and more authentic as well.

    The only disadvantage I could see in traveling to Kyushu would be the language. They really rarely speak any English. Familiarize with some common phrases to survive and learn common etiquette to avoid being stereotyped.

    Although part of Hyogo Prefecture already, Awaji Island is also another potential destination. You can find the Naruto Theme Park here.

    Enjoy.

    Agreed bro can’t stress how many times foreigners fall into the usual commercial traps, much better if one goes to the “Yatai” street stores for some grub.
    Yes those small businesses owned by and even operated by the elders are a much better experience overall. Food’s much more authentic and gives you a glimpse of typical Japanese cuisine. Light on the budget, no fuss, and supporting the community. I’m sure you’ve already noticed that 60% of the people there are 50 and over.

    Ah yes and that’s why I had to mention that it is best experienced for second time travellers to the country. Also good advice on brushing up with the common phrases and of course proper etiquette which is often forgotten by tourists.

    Good points bros and lets continue to contribute para sa uban mga istoryans na mo travel didto
