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".

Actually the best way to experience Japan is to go free and easy. You will be surprise to know that it is not hard at all to book accomodation via the internet. The transport system is also pretty straight forward.

But for a 1st time visit, I would recommend ANA... went with them to Hokkaido.. great trip. Oh no..... I am missing Japan again.......... :cry:

my next trip there would definitely be a free and easy. It is the small knick knacks that are worth visiting. Shopping is superb there.

I miss Japan too !!! :cry:

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...
