Things to do in Japan.

Wondering what to do when you arrive in Japan? Worry no more! I found a few travel guides made by Japan Lover Me contributor Ashley (you can check her blog here.) I think they are really cute and informative. I hope it´s useful if you are planning on visiting one of these cities (or all of them) any time soon! The cities are: Akihabara, Kyoto, Harajuku, Shibuya (Tokyo), Hokkaido, Osaka, Shinjuku, Shimokitazawa, Chiba, Kobe and Nagoya.
