    So, I'm thinking seriously of making a trip to the country of my dreams within the next 1-2 months, Japan, I'm planning on spending there some 2-3 weeks.

    I'm looking for suggestions from anyone from Japan or someone that has been there before to give me some tips on some places that I really have to see.

    Thanks

    Japan is a big place, well not that big, but there's many people densely packed there, Tokyo alone has something like 35 million people.

    Are you looking to go to the big cities? Get out to the countryside and do some hiking? There's a lot to see and do, and just being in Tokyo can be overwhelming for some. (Tokyo's one of my favoritie cities, in fact.)

    Here are a few sites which might help (tried to post URLs, but it won't let me, use Google)- JapanToday, JapanTimes, Quirky Japan.

    ... and don't bother with Kinki Japan guys... it's a travel agency named after a region. Ha hah hah.

    Buy a Japan Railway Pass in your country before embarking on your trip. You will save lot of money on travel.

    Good places near Tokyo - Nikko, Kamakura.
    Should not miss - Kyoto - the old Capital of Japan
    Far from Tokyo but worth seeing - Furano, Bie in Hokkaido, Beppu in Kyushu

    I had this idea of seeing Tokyo from Mt. Fuji, is there any transport that travels through the mountain allowing you to see Tokyo from a distance, I always heard that this was a beautiful sight.

    Also, where is that famous big indoor pool with simulated waves, is it in Osaka?

    Definitely find snowwhite. Apparently he's in Asia and he's staying for good. Might want to arrange a blackhat meetup.

    Was it the only one in Miyazaki, isn't there another?

    In Hiroshima, can you go inside the Atomic peace dome, or just see it from the outside?

    Man, you make me jealous. I've always wanted to go to Japan but never had the chance.

    Locations I recommend you to visit:

    -Akihabara
    -Tokyo
    -Shibuya
    -Kyoto

    Try to enjoy it as much as you can, I will eventually end up going there aswell.
