Konnichiwa minasan! Kevan desu!
I thought this might be a good place to visit to look at other people's experiences and ideas as well as try and get some help with my own plans.
I just started recently getting serious about learning Japanese because I've been wanting to visit Japan for a while, but am only now able to put the money aside to do so. I'm hoping to go sometime in late June or July but wanted to get some feedback before I started making plans and reservations. Since I am only just now really sinking my teeth into learning the launguage, and know next to nothing about actually getting around and the right spots to hit, I was wondering if I could get opinions on whether there is enough time to get a good enough grasp on things to get around easy. Also, suggestions on where to go and how to effectively use my time would be most appreciated! I'm mostly interested in first experiencing the city life, probably with a stay in Tokyo and checking out popular shopping districts, landmarks and touring the night life, though I am interested in visiting other areas like Osaka and Kyoto as well.
I know this is kind of a lot to ask about, but I would appreciate anything you guys have to contribute!
