Ooh, jealous! I’ve studied Japanese on and off for eleven years, but I’ve never managed to make it to Japan :/.

Looks like you had the time of your lives! SO and I have Japan on our list of trips so this thread was highly valuable! Aside from other tips and advice from posters, is there anything you discovered on your own that would be useful to know?

@SuperDuperBrit:  Glad you had a good time! I knew you would! It sounds like your guys really just dove in and tried everything, which is definitely the right approach! Congratulations on the wedding and the honeymoon!

@SuperDuperBrit:  Thanks for the reply! I’ll definitely have to try the green tea/vanilla swirl!!! It sounds OISHII, hehe. As for fish eggs, I’ve had salmon roe and it tasted like straight up salt balls! It’s an acquired taste, I’m sure, so you probably didn’t miss out. Also, that’s a good idea to have the addresses written down and ready for the cab driver to see! I was thinking we would just point at a map and assume he knew what I meant, but I’m awful with those – unfortunately, I have no sense of direction. Thanks again!

@SuperDuperBrit:  My Fiance and I are planning a trip to Japan about 3 months after our wedding so we can be there for cherry blossom season! I’m so glad I found your post, we’ve been looking for a good ryokan and other travel ideas but it’s so confusing to try and find a nice one, especially one near a shrine (we might try and stay at a shrine, too, but that’s even MORE confusing than looking at ryokan).

Neither of us speaks more Japanese than counting to 10 and left/right, so it should be fun.

For any other Bee’s who have been to Japan – did you stay at a shrine? If so, which one? Any recommendations about hotels? We’re still over a year away, but I want to have a list of places to check when we actually get around to booking, because I overplan like that. Plus, talking about our honeymoon is way more entertaining than studying, which is what I’m supposed to be doing.

Thank you so much for all of the information you’ve shared in this thread. My partner and I are going back and forth between Japan or several countries in Western Europe. Decisions, decisions.
