I stayed at the Drop-Inn hostel near Osaka Station to the north of the city. Very comfortable, clean and inexpensive. But yeah, a hostel.

Looks like I'm going to Tokyo next week for a work meeting.
It's near Shibuya, any decent-ish not taking the piss hotels anyone can recommend?

Booked a 14 day trip to coincide with a work thing, going over New Years which may not be ideal but fuck it (28th-11th). Anyone with an ideal 10-14 day itinerary and hotel/airbnb recs would be great.

That time of year is great for sales. This year, I was in Tokyo for the two weeks directly after new year's and all stores were on sale.

We stayed here in Kyoto:

The Royal Park Hotel Kyoto Sanjo (http://www.the-royalpark.jp/the/kyotosanjo/en/)

Below your budget. Felt like most non-temple things were at our doorstep. Couldn't really fault it.

Oshima island any good?

Got a few days between Tokyo and Kyoto, looking to get away from the city.

Just got back from three weeks in Japan. Why did nobody warn me about the Chinese menace. There were so many of them.

In Japanese cities all sorts of people are everywhere. What makes Chinese people a menace compared to Japanese or others?
