okay what's ur budget for this whole trip?
errrrrr, dont really have a budget for the whole trip bah but both of us just graduated from uni so.. i guess budget we wont be too high bah, just tat for that few days i am willing to spend more, the rest of the trip we had more or less planned it out le haha..

The ryokan stay my budget is around is around 500-600ish for 2D1N is it too low or high? if you have cheaper alternatives that are good i am open to suggestions too was hoping to have a private onsen in our room or it isnt necessary? lol

i am not too sure anyone know the cost for hiring a photographer for half/ full day?:X

do you guys think proposing at Hakone or amanohashidate or Shirakawago will be a better choice?><


DAY1 HND Airport 6am Hakone
DAY2 Hakone > Takayama
DAY 3 Takayama > Shirakawago
DAY 4 Takayama> Kyoto
DAY 5 Kyoto > amanohashidate
DAY 6 Kyoto> Osaka
DAY 7 Kyoto>Tokyo
DAY 8 Flight back to Singapore 6pm

this is our third time visiting japan bah as such visiting places we never visited. osaka is more of stop to get tidbits :X

is it too rush?

No budget but won't spend too much on good luxury hotels. Just wanted to relax and see snowing.
Anyone can recommend good hotel as in nearby JR and convenient stores at sendai, akita, aomori, Tokyo?

Definitely too rush. Too many places in 8 days.
And you need to factor in travelling time between these places.
Instead of flying back from Tokyo.
Why not fly back from Osaka instead so you can stay 1 or 2 nights there.
Unless you already bought your flight tickets and accommodations.

It is called Century Southern Tower Hotel...

https://www.southerntower.co.jp/

I booked directly from the website... coz those apps like expedia and agoda always shows sold out... but their website still available...
3rd parties like Experdia /Agoda are only given a specific number of rooms to sell and in many cases the hotels will retain rooms for direct booking.

In my case when i booked this very same hotel (Century Southern Tower Hotel) 3 months ago for my upcoming trip in 2 weeks time, Agoda offered the best deal.
