    Default What Are Your Plans for Golden Week?

    Doing anything fun for Golden Week this year? Tatami Timeshare is down at the moment so my plans to check out Fukuoka and Oita are pretty much down the shitter now.
    What are the coolest things about your prefecture, and which ones are you still itching to see? Or are you just going to leave Japan altogether for vacation?

    Nothing. Traveling in GW is a pain regularly. Now with a kid and a dog? No thanks. The in-laws will visit, I'll go to my local bar and drink beer til I'm shitfaced.

    There's nothing in Saitama worth seeing and I've seen all the things that are rumoured to be worth seeing.

    Would love to visit back home, but it is the worst time of the year. Maybe if I flew via Korea.

    Au contraire, I really want to see the Iwatsuki doll museum and spend stupid amounts of money on a hina ningyou.

    I suppose you also want to visit the train museum and see the in-breds of Chichibu?

    No. It's two different things to see. I guess that would have been a good time for the old Oxford comma?

    Dolls and pottery are kinda my thing. Wanted to go to Fukuoka to see the Hakata doll museum as well. As you may have already guessed, I am a positively riveting person.

    I'd go to Fukuoka if I were you. Don't worry about staying in some smelly foreigner's hovel, they have these things called "hotels". It's like a place where adults can stay once they grow up and get a job.

    Yeah, I'm not sure in what other circumstance you'd want to sleep on some random jackhole's floor. Only in Japan, it seems.

    Granted, roofies are harder to get here, but bathtubs of sand are not.

    The boy got a new car and it's all roomy on the inside so a bunch of us are taking a couple cars on a road trip. Dunno where we're going, but it should be interesting.

    I'm getting a hotel in my nearest major city (Hiroshima) and just chilling: food, shopping, a bit of sightseeing. Getting out of my little town a few days is Golden enough for me.

    Otherwise it NEVER gets used.

    Be sure to have fun, Fantasia.

    Is it a tourist area? I would imagine so if it has hotels. (unless it's an area where businessmen tend to travel to)

    Traveling alone is kind of a zen experience for me. What about you?

    It's mostly touristy because of the history of the city, so you get a lot of people coming to see the peace museum and remnants of the bombing. I wouldn't exactly call it a fun place for family vacationing, but it's fine for someone like me just looking to relax for a few days. And while I like doing the group thing time to time, I much prefer to travel on my own. Following just one itenarary (my own) is a lot better than being pulled in five different directions by five different itenararies.
