check out e travel fair in sep.
i find packages by ANA value for $ & generally cheaper than JAL's.
having a reputation to maintain, u can be sure e accom, food & tour guide are of certain std.
my 6D Central Jap trip cost ard $1448.

I second ANA tour. Went for it last nov.
The itinery they provided covered quite a number of places, with enough time to look around, rather than just "touch see and go".

haha....first time to japan best is to go with guide...esp if u dun speak japanese....got guide better... street jap and those tt u learn in class is very different....
if u intend to extensively take photos....dun go with tour....wat to buy there....everything in tokyo is pretty expensive... but there are areas tt stuff can be bought at budget prices....
personally i love harajuku....though the price there alittle inflated , the street fashion there is upz haha....
electronics whiles esp camera stuff u may wanna consider buying locally instead...the only thing i found cheap was the electronic dictionaries....
japan is a beautiful...perhaps i will make another trip down next year....if u intend to visit nightspots to take photos or pub in japan ...perhaps i can give u directions on where to go....but tt's if ya tour allows...
