Which of these did you enjoy the most? A. Japanese food
Your review Japan is one of my favourite places to visit for all the reasons you list in 'Which did you enjoy the most'. The monuments are beautiful, the hotels and ryokans superb, the shopping outstanding. Everything is very easy and straightforward and people are polite and helpful. You get what you pay for and there are no hidden extras. You can pay $1000 for a night in a ryokan but it's a bargain for what you get for your money or you pay $150 and get a nice, clean room. You can have a great bowl of noodles for a few pounds and a Michelin starred meal for hundreds. I find knowing that everything will work and knowing that you can make four transport connections in a day without any trouble makes it a relaxing place to visit. One day I got on the wrong train and didn't have a valid ticket. I wasn't fined - the ticket inspector made sure he helped me find the right train instead.
