If you have 7days, I recommend Tokyo(2 full days): Imperial palace, Tsukiji Fish market, Asakusa, Shibuya, Meiji shrine, Odaiba, Tokyo disney land, and many more. Kyoto(2 full days) and Nara Hakone(1 full day): if it is clear sky, you can see Mt.Fuji from Hakone well. Nikko(1 full day): world heritage Enjoy planning your trip! about 6 years ago
I'll be in Osaka on June 20-24. What's the weather like? I'm getting mixed info from the net. Some say it's hot. Others say it's rainy.
Around end of June, Osaka and all of main land of Japan(Tokyo, Kyoto etc) are in rainy season. It is humid and warm(about 25C). Long sleeves or T-shirts is ok. about 6 years ago
Going to Japan and Thailand from December - January. What kind of credit card or travelers cash card is best?

One of most famous expensive Sushi restaurant for Japanese locals is Kyubey. It costs about 300 USD per person. But it is so nice. http://www.kyubey.jp/ And you can find many sushi restaurants around Tsukiji Fish Market. We often go to Sushisei. The sushi chefs are very friendly for foreigners. Around 15 USD for lunch. about 6 years ago
