I was chatting with my friends on Ventrilo and we started discussing the Japan trip we hope to go on some time next summer. The current group we have going is 5 of us: my brother, 3 friends, and myself.
It will probably be a 2 week trip since not all of us can stay for a month or longer. We’re looking at arriving around mid-June and departing near the end of June. Unfortunately, that seems to be the rainy season in Tokyo.
A quick cost estimate breakdown:
- Round-trip airfare: $800
- 7-day Japan Rail Pass: $300
- Hostels: $700
- Food: $700
- Random purchases + other expenses: $500
We are overestimating on the food costs at $50 per day to be safe since we want to try out all the local specialties in whichever area we’re in.
Even though next summer is far off, we still need to get around to making our itinerary. We plan on hitting as many locations as possible, but more research is needed for an ideal plan. Guess I should start learning Japanese again.
