Our Partnerships Editor Sam is hitching a plane to Japan the first week of January and will be touring around the central part of the country for a few weeks. She's stopping in the following cities:

  • Tokyo
  • Kanazawa
  • Kyoto
  • Osaka
  • Omachi
  • Matsumoto

Sam's hoping to uncover a few things to write about while she's there, so do tell (in the comments): What would be a shame to miss? Where should she eat or drink? Where should she be still? Move fast? Points of interest include:

  • Hidden restaurants
  • Bowling alleys
  • Karaoke
  • Sake sets, with sake in them
  • The best potato chips
  • Bargain dresses
  • Fish only eaten in Japan
  • Stationary
  • Snowy gardens
  • Local favorites
  • Places to play video games
  • Animal cafes
