What a nice time of year to visit Tokyo! Coming from China, a place that is generally polluted and chaotic, Japan is a breath of fresh air. I am impressed by Japan: the order, the safety, the wonderful food. Spring Airlines is your friend for coming to Japan. Make sure to get the JR rail pass for foreigners before you come. If you fly into Ibaraki Airport, make sure to reserve a seat on the bus that will take you downtown--this can be done online. I loved living in Thailand, and life in China can be good--especially because of the people--but Japan is as modern as it gets, a wonderful place to visit.
