Following a rather raucous night at the Park Hyatt Tokyo (you can can immerse yourself in our sozzled experience here), James and I hopped on the bullet train and travelled a casual 504km to Osaka – a city infamous for its food and drink scene.
Which we were finally able to endure after what I would call one of the ‘top 10 hangovers of my life’. Hurrah!
Expect castles, street food and helpful morsels of information including how the bloody hell do you use a Japanese laundry?
The ‘deadliest airline in the world’ has got its act together in recent years but many are still reluctant to fly Aeroflot.
Yet at £258 for a return flight to Tokyo, we were willing to give it a go.
So, just how bad was it?
Everyone loves to talk about how expensive Japan is and so I thought it would be a great chance to flex my money saving muscles and rustle up an epic trip of:
- 10+ nights
- A bullet train tour of Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto
- A lush last night hotel stay
- Oh, and let’s throw in going at the PRICIEST time in the Japanese calendar – cherry blossom season!
First up, it’s all about the flight. AND WHAT A BARGAIN IT WAS!!!
