My DD (16 years) and I are heading to Japan in less than 28 days!! We're finalising our itinerary now and I'd love suggestions of must see/must do in Japan.
We'll be staying in Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima and go on day trips from there. So far we've got:
Lots of temples and palaces in all locations
Memorials in Hiroshima
Nijia house (traditional not tourist place)
Nara Deer Park
Shibuya & Akihabara districts in Tokyo
Disneyland ... of course!
What are we missing?

Places to MUST see in Japan

I am so jealous of you right now... The towers are great, like Tokyo Tower and there's an amazing one in Osaka. If you have time, a day trip to Hakone/Mt Fuji is worth it. And the Hiroshima museum totally devastated me but I'm so glad I went.
I will grudgingly say 'have lots of fun'. Ooh, and take at least one empty suitcase!

We'll have fun! I'll share photos too
So very, very excited - I've never been to Japan. DD's teacher said she would not be taking the school group to the Hiroshima museum (school is going next year), but I feel it is a must see for both DD and I.
I forgot the Towers ... I'll add them to the list.

I'm so jealous! Go to Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. It's incredible and I believe it cost us less than $5 each to go!

Oh lucky you!!! So much to see in Japan. We loved it. A few highlights of our trip....
Bamboo forest near Kyoto
Golden temple Kyoto
We actually hired bikes and rode around Kyoto - it was awesome!
Hemiji castle (spelling??)
If you are into sea life go to the aquarium in Osaka - it has a whale shark!

So jealous, I loved Japan but only visited for a week.
In addition to what you've got, go to one of the wacky themed restaurants - we went to the Ninja one, it was so fun.
We also went to a sumo training session, it was very cool.
Mainly I just loved eating!!
