About 10 days. Will be based in Tokyo Shibuya for 4 nights, 1 in Nara, 1 in Osaka, then Kyoto for 4.
Will do my share of being a standard tourist, but recommendations for a less superficial immersion? Interesting 'projects' welcomed (e.g. hunting for an obscure 'only in japanese grocery store' item/flavor)
Any Cultural faux-pas to be wary of, etc?
