Looking for someone to explore Tokyo/Kyoto/Kobe in October 2021
From October 07, 2021 to October 16, 2021
Hello Everyone! My name is Blake, I'm 27 years old and from Washington DC. I booked a trip/will be in Japan from Oct 7-16th 2021. I wanted to see if anyone wanted to travel with/meet up for a few days to experience some of the country with. I’m traveling alone currently, but I find it more fun to experience new things/places with friends.(especially trying out new foods/visiting new locations). I've back-backed/travelled other parts of the world both solo and with friends and decided that for this trip it would be fun to try meeting new people.
While traveling I love to try as much local food as I can and then working it off the next day exploring and trying new things. I also enjoy the nightlife scene and wouldn't say no to going out and experiencing that part of the city as well .I don’t have any set plans yet, if you have any suggestions I’m interested to hear them! My thoughts so far was to explore Tokyo and then head to Kyoto and try to squeeze in a day trip to Kobe but am pretty flexible.
Things I'm interested in for this trip include:
- Eating sushi, ramen, gyoza, kobe beef and many other delicious things
- Seeing the temples in Kyoto
- Staying at a Ryokan
- Catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji.
- Checking out a traditional Hot Spring/Bath house
- Karaoke bar/ nightlife/arcades in Tokyo
- Tokyo Skytree
- Visiting the Markets/Street vendors/shops.
- so much more!
I'm currently learning Japanese and plan to be somewhat proficient by the time of the trip! Looking for other Travelers around the same age that share these common interests.
Let me know if you are interested in joining along for some/all of the trip or meeting up for a day or two!
