Hello all,

I will be travelling in Japan in January 2007 for about 2.5 weeks. Any sugguestion or must see destinations during this time of year? I know it will be pretty cold, but I'm hoping that will limit the crowds a bit. Looking forward to eating a lot of sashimi:) Thanks in advance - happy travelling.

Kyoto.... Cold but pretty. A mus see for a trip to Japan
Okinawa... if you want to escape the cold and see some beatiul beaches
Hokkaido... if you want to get right in the cold snow

Further to the suggestions above, Hiroshima if only for the fantastic peace museum, and to a lesser extent Nagasaki for similar reasons.

definitely visit kyoto, nara and KOYA SAN (you'll get there via osaka)!- not as touristic but still a lot of nice monuments to see.
maybe hit myajima, hiroshima, nagasaki or kagoshima;
i did the tunnel walk from honshu to kyushu- i found it nice, although nothing special just that you walk beneath the sea from one island to another...
oh and yes- it's gonn be awfully cold... :)
take care
