Going to Japan, but not for a while. What should we book?

Thanks to some ridiculous flight deals, a friend of mine and I are headed to Japan for two weeks. The catch/opportunity: the flight is next February. There's probably a bunch of really neat things to do in Japan that unfortunately have huge waiting lists or need to be planned well in advance, right? For once in my life, we are those people planning well in advance! So what neat things with long waiting lists should we sign up for now? [more inside]

So...there's baked beans...

TravelFilter: I am going to visit my mom for July 4th. She has recently moved to the area (Newport TN). There is a Bush's baked beans factory. What else is there to see and do within a 30 minutes or so drive? I'll be there for the 4th and then that whole weekend with my boyfriend. She's having a big party with lots of visitors the whole weekend, so we're not going to be at their house the whole time. I'm looking for things for Boyfriend42 and I do when we are not stuffing ourselves full of potato salad, hamburgers, hot dogs, and of course, baked beans. [more inside]

Where should I visit in Kazakhstan?

My company sponsors an orphanage in Pavlodar, Kazakhstan, and I'll be visiting it next year. My question is, aside from the orphanage of course, are there any places you'd recommend I visit while in Kazakhstan? I'm an American designer, and on vacations to Europe I always seek out non-touristy places that exhibit great design or typography. Now, all of Kazakhstan seems to be fairly non-touristy, but are there any beautiful places I should stop while there?
