X'mas trip to Japan  

20th - Fukuoka, Drum Logos, Standing C 9x番 (...I wish they had a seating map...)
21st - ???
22nd - ???
23rd - ???
24 & 25th - Tsubasa Live in Osaka
26th - Home

Any suggestion on where to go on 21st-23rd? Recommendations?
I'm running out of ideas...
I've been to Osaka and Kyoto more times than I can count and hit all the even slightly tourisy spots, been on short day trips to Nara, Izumo and Ise.
Since I'll be traveling alone, onsen is sorta out of the question (too shy do it alone...)
Help? Any other interesting place in that area for sight seeing? Anyone there at that time and want to meet up?

Sorta considered going to Saiga Mitsuki's live on the 23rd, but it's all the way over in Yokohama...

Awww, I hit onsens alone while I've been here. It's really not that bad at all. In fact, I appreciate not being naked in front of people I know. :p

I just came back from Okayama on Tuesday and loved it. Not sure how it'll be in the winter, but Korakuen is gorgeous, so I can imagine it would be quite pretty with snow (if it snows during your time there..).

I'm winding up my trip this week, so I envy you about to go on yours, and to see Taniyama-san too!! I saw him at Utamamire and I really enjoyed watching him sing live. ^^ I was not a huge fan of his singing prior to this, but he's so much better in person, and more entertaining on stage too. Ahem....hopefully he'll be topless and where LOW rider pants (and I mean LOW) for your concert too. XDD

I'll think about the onsen, but I'm likely to chicken out if there aren't friends to drag me out >< Why wouldn't they let you use a beach towel T_T

Okayama sounds good! I'll do some research about how it's like in December ^^ Thanks for the suggestion ♥

I've always liked Taniyama's singing, so if he's even better in person, then OMG *prepares to have my mind blown away* I caaaaaan't wait

I think I got over being naked quickly, because when I'm on vacation there, I travel during weekdays and it seems like the only other people there are the elderly. At least I don't feel bad about my body next to them. XDD I swear, each onsen I've been to, there have been no more than 2 women who look under 60.

That's good news! Yeah, I'm much less nervous if it's just going to be mostly baba there.. For one thing, they probably can't see me clearly anyway = =+

Oh, and if you like Okayama, maybe a short side trip to Himeji too? I was planning to hit there this trip, but decided on Kyoto instead. Kind of regretting it because as I was viewing Okayama-jo, this older Japanese gentlemen kept going on about how Himeji's castle was better. Okayama-jo is a black castle, supposedly the "opposite" of Himeji's pure white one and Himeji's is more famous. The two places are very close together, but I don't know what else is in Himeji besides the famous castle.

Oh, I've been to Himeji a few times, I love going there for a early morning trip (when I bought a JR pass and shinkansen is therefore free...)

It's a very nice town where people spontaneously greet you with a Ohayo and a smile ^^ I usually go there way early (like.. 6am train), stay 2 hours or so and run back in time for breakfast XD

The castle lives up to its reputation of being simply magnificent, there are a couple of museum and park around, KokoEn was pretty nice. I think they said everything is inside the ground of the old castle walls, and hence are all within a 10 mins or so bike ride (free bike rental! near the JR station).

Didn't know Okayama-jo being mostly black, just did a image search, it looks really nice! I think I'm definitely going there no matter what everything else is like during winder XD (<- still haven't started reading up)
