Great trip, great people, great food - amazing country!
Our tips: stay in a ryokan, you won't regret it; embrace the izakaya experience, so tasty and great value, don't be afraid to venture upstairs to eat since a lot of great Japanese dining is done on higher floors; do learn a few words of basic Japanese, your interactions with the locals who are already friendly, will be even better!
Finally, although the guidebooks (we had a bunch of them!) are helpful to cut to the chase and not waste any time during your trip, some of our most enjoyable experiences were spontaneous ones.
Whether it was a random izakaya up some stairs in Shibuya or a hidden tiny bar in Pontocho, our curiosity and stepping off the main streets was always rewarded by a great encounter with locals and some unforgettable moments.
