Decided to attend the Go congress of Shizuoka in February. Any anime pilgrimage spots around there?

Question for those that are more familiar with the Emperor's birthday. Next year it appears it will be on a Sunday, and I read somewhere that the observance would therefore be the subsequent Monday. As I am planning a trip to Japan during that period, which of those days would the Imperial Palace be open for his birthday? Currently have that Monday slotted to visit it as I want to see the part that's usually closed off, but if it's Sunday instead I'll have to swap some things around.

Is it possible to do a one day trip to Hokkaido from Tokyo?

Would like to see Cape Soya.

To Hokkaido, sure....but question is if it's worth it. It's 4 hrs by Shinkansen from Tokyo to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto.

Cape Souya is not possible though. It's 5 hrs+ by train from Sapporo to Wakkanai, let alone from Tokyo. Maybe if you took a very early morning flight, assuming they have it but if you have to do that, you really should consider whether it's worth the hassle and cost.

Ah. I remember reading about the Sapporo-Wakkanai route.

Saw it in a documentary once.

Just do two days in Hokkaido if Cape Souya is all you want...much better. I once did something similar from Tokyo a few years back, only westwards using the Tokaido Shinkansen. Consecutive day trips from Tokyo down to Kansai, Wakayama and Okayama. Very rushed and exhausting. These days I prefer to just stay in one place and thoroughly enjoy it.

I dream about visiting Japan. And my dream soon will come . I am going to Japan this spring I have booked tickets and started learning some general phrases in Japanese. I want to visit Kusatsu and see Yubatake hot spring https://worldcams.tv/water/yubatake-hot-spring . I am very excited I want to try their famous noodles and watermelon patties.

Didn't know there was such a thread. I went to Japan for 11 days end of March through first week of April 2017. Very much enjoyed it! The main reason for my trip was to catch the cherry blossom bloom, but unfortunately it was a late bloom. I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED the food there. The curry and the ramen was so good! The sushi was good, but I would say it's on par with here in SoCal. I spent most of my days in Tokyo visiting the districts and tons of restaurants and markets. I did go to Kyoto for 3 days to visit Mt. Inari, the Hello Kitty Cafe (my friend's choice, not mine lol), and the golden temple as well as another one which I forgot the name of. Japan is VERY expensive, but it was worth it. I definitely will be coming back because I barely scratched an inch of the country.
