So I'm looking to make my first foray into the world of International travel (having only experienced Caribbean cruises and shorter trips to Mexico from the US) specifically looking to hit up Japan. I was wondering if any more seasoned travelers had some advice on the best way to go about planning a trip like this.
We know that we want to hit up several cities, Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka for sure, with an interest in seeing a variety of sites both historical and more pop-cultural. Is a travel package the best way to do this? Or is it better to try and do things more ad hoc? Any links or advice would be greatly appreciated! We're looking at Autumn of 2016 so I have some time to plan and put away money for the trip. Thanks in advance!
