Hi y'all, new forum member here. I'm about to take a 6 day trip from SK over to Japan. The ferry will drop me in Fukuoka city, and then I'm on my own. I'm not poor but am frugal and want to limit my budget.
The travel agent here tried to sell me a 1-week rail pass. It sounds like a good idea but the question is... how much is it worth? Is 300,000 won a fair price (about US$300) or is it cheaper to just buy it in Japan? How much would say a normal round trip ticket from Fukuoka to Tokyo cost if that's going to be my only destination?
OK, now that the money question is out of the way, go ahead and tell me all the fun things I should do and see in japan in the wintertime!
