Well maybe not far reaches, since I'll be trying to stay in the main cities for this go round. But I do have some interesting plans to try out some more obscure and interesting places in Tokyo like a goat cafe (That's for you, Katrina Reinhard), an owl cafe (Yes, think Harry Potter), a museum dedicated to ramen, and if I'm feeling adventurous maybe even going to a meat theme park (nervous about this one).
Don't worry, I'll get to hit up many of the super popular places like Ghibli museum for Hayao Miyakai's works like Spirited Away and Totoro, Edo Tokyo Museum, Sky Tree, Golden Pavilion in Kyoto (pictured), Peace Park in Hiroshima, and lots more. This is the first year I'm trying out the famed JR Rail Pass for 21 whole crazy days. It basically gives me an open pass on almost any JR train throughout Japan. Hokkaido, here I come...if there's time left.
