Japan (Tokyo)
My dream is going to Japan to see the beautiful city Tokyo. Tokyo is the capital of Japan and it has a population of 13 million people. Tokyo is a marvelous mix of modern living and old-fashioned manners, slick high-tech gadgets and cutesy cartoon mascots. It's terribly crowded, yet can be strangely quiet. It's home to the understated, and the wacky, and you often find them right next to each other on the sidewalk. Tokyo was originally a small fishing village named Edo, now it is modern city and hosts 51 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, the highest number of any city.
I have a plan to go with my family there next year Feb. 2015. Tokyo will be the first destination we will visit in Asia. We will stay there for almost 10 days. We will travel to Tokyo by Japan Airlines and it will cost us $5,270. Also, I will rent a car for almost 10 days and it will cost us $840.
In some places, we will use the train and I have a budget of almost $1,500. During my trip, we will stay at 5 stars hotels and it will cost us around $3,000 for two connected rooms. Also, they will be located in the center of Tokyo city to help us to visit our planed places. In addition, we will budget $1500 for food and souvenirs. The total amount of this trip will cost $12,110
The weather there will be cold and we should wear coat, scarfs, gloves and boots.
As I have read there is a deeper respect for there elders and they high regard for foreigners. They have one of the most advanced tsunami early warning system in the world. We find it more economical to exchange currency before we leave.
Here are our plans for visiting the following places:
1. Meiji Shrine: is a Shinto shrine located in the Shibuya Ward, in the middle of a beautiful forest with huge Torii gates leading to the main hall and it is accessible from the Harajuku Station on the JR Yamanote Line.
2. Yoyogi Park on a Sunday: is the best to observe local customs.
3. Zojoji Temple: is a Buddhist temple
