Arien vs. The World

Japan, here I come!

Posted on: September 29, 2008

Some colleagues from work had the brilliant idea of making a group trip to visit Japan next year. Being the geeky girl I am, and being so crazy about all things Japanese, I can’t but cheer at this iniciative and join them.

We met on Sunday to talk about the initial route proposal. The original plan is to travel around September next year, going across the country (north to south) in 15-20 days. We would start at Sapporo (Hokkaido) and end our adventures in Nagasaki or Okinawa, depending on the length of our stay. We have scheduled visits to the most important cities (Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, etc) as well as some smaller towns. Also temples, museums, and natural parks. Sounds so exciting! I hope we have time to see everything!

The trip won’t be cheap, around 3.000€ per person (I bet it will be more), so that’s a big challenge for me. I’m actually not sure I can make it, because financially speaking I’m in a tight spot  (crisis ftl). But hope is the last thing one has to give up, and I’m determined to at least try to save enough money to make the trip, while not harming my daily economy.

So, we have one year to save up money, to gather useful information for the trip (where to stay, what to do) and to learn some Japanese (ohayo!). Websites like Kirai‘s are going to be so useful. Countdown starts now!

By the way, we have an official mascot of our trip as of yesterday. Meet Cosplay Doraemon!
