Hello again everyone, Im Vim, 23 years old, is currently working here in Singapore, originally from Philippines. Ive already book my flight to Japan, thing is Im a bit nervous about this. It would definitely be great if I could find someone to go with me. Im planning to spend two days (at the very least) for each of the four destinations I mentioned above. The date starts from March 26 2015, just the perfect time to see the sakura blossom. I guess thats all :)

Hello,

While you are waiting for someone to respond to your post, you might like to research the volunteer guides on Japan.

All over Japan there are Goodwill guides who offer their time to guide overseas visitors, for free. You are only expected to pay for their travel expenses and admissions to tourist facilities as well as yours, and to pay for their meals if you eat with them.
Google 'Japan National Tourist Organization' or 'Tokyo free guides' or whatever city you want & see what pops up.

Sounds a bit wiered I know, free guides, but I think it is genuine. They just want to be helpful, show visitors their cities which they are proud of & not be out of pocket.
I have heard some even refuse tips.

How will you be traveling? With the Japan Rail Pass?

I found the Castle at Osaka very interesting but I have not been to the other places you mention. Do you have any plans for your stops along the way?

I see you have not made a map on TP of the trip yet. Will you?

No, no need for the map, but if you do, it would automatically populate the planner which might help with, well - with your planning.

Then. when you find your travel buddy, you could share the planning by collaborating on the planner.
