If you live in Japan, what are you doing for Golden Week?
It's coming up fast. I hadn't made any plans, because you'd have to be desperate and insane to go traveling during one of the few times in the year when every other person in Japan feels liberated to see the sights.
But I felt a twinge of regret. Then a surge of audacity! The call of the open skies!
I could take that trip to Australia I've always wanted.... or to Alaska... or.. or...
Filled with the feeling of possibilities, I went so far as to hunt down airfares from various websites and travel companies.
And then the dream was over.
Golden Week is one of the most expensive times to travel in or out of Japan.
