"Andrea, so excited to hear you are visiting Japan! Spring will be a lovely time to visit! If the cherry or plum blossoms are in bloom when you are there, definitely take some time to enjoy the natural beauty with a yummy bento lunch picnic in the park. ^_^ Regarding transport, I was curious if you purchased a Japan Rail pass for your trip? If you were planning on taking the bullet train from Tokyo to Osaka, I think the rail pass would be worth it, especially since you are making some of those day trips. You should be able to purchase the pass in your country.See details here: !!"  See More
