Wow! You are seriously very lucky to be traveling to Japan
!! Anyways, some people people join church groups, you may be thinking (possibly) "but I'm not a religious person blah blah sdufhidvhi... " that does not really matter because, usually these church groups will do amazing things, like exploring the city and beautiful rural places of Japan. Check out Sakura Sakkyokuka's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zGUz_j ... JQmoP5i54Q
He covers basic tips that you may already know. If so skip to 1:44 for information about joining a church/community.
