I have recently graduated and am able to travel in June this year. I have decided to go to Japan.
I will be traveling alone and it will be my first time.
I intend to go from early to mid June for 10-12 days. However still considering options and can go for more/less days. I would like to see and take in as much as I can. I am on a budget and will most likely be staying in Airbnb/Hostels on the trip. Very interested in the cuisine and I&amp;#39;m sure most of my spending will go towards that.
I&amp;#39;d love to check out the night life too.
Can anyone kindly advise me as to a good area to stay in Tokyo for my adventures? :)
A location central to most tourist hot spots and areas I&amp;#39;d like to visit. The popular choice seems to be Shinjuku.
I would be looking at staying in Airbnb&amp;#39;s and Hostels. Will consider Hotels if they&amp;#39;re budget friendly.
Is the amount of time I&amp;#39;ve allocated to Tokyo sufficient?
Open to suggestions. An area with lots to do and great food would be ideal.
How much should I budget for the trip? I intend to splurge mainly on food. My flights are covered so that wouldn&amp;#39;t be an issue. I will be leaving from South Africa.
The other option I have is to travel to 2-3 countries in Europe but the Euro/Pound is significantly higher than the Rand at the moment. But if it would be a more budget friendly destination, I&amp;#39;d definitely consider it.
Any help or guidance would be much appreciated :)
