August 12.-27.8 :: Finnish 22-yo guy traveling to Tokyo and surrounding area
Posted August 3rd, 2012 - 11:11 am by from Amsterdam, Netherlands (Permalink)
Hello! My name is Wilhelm Blomberg. I'm a 22-year old dance student, from Kaunainen in Finland. I've booked flights to Tokyo for two weeks; August 12th-27th The official reason why I'm coming to Japan is because me and my urban dance crew are competing in a urban dance competition called Dance Delight the 26th of August, arranged in Yokohama.

Why I'm posting in this: I would not want to spend the whole two weeks inside the hectic city, I would want to see even a bit more traditional side of Japan, and the nature of Japan! First I was planning on traveling to Kyoto or Kobo for a week, but I reckon taking the shinkansen will become quite expensive this time. Maybe another trip in the future then :)

If you have any suggestions on somewhere to travel to for a few night, or know any people somewhere, I would indeed be delighted! Indeed, the most crucial dates are around August 12th-20th since I will probably stay at a hotel the second week with my dance crew.

Hope to year back from you!
Thank you!
Wilhelm Blomberg
