Things you should do in Japan

As my time in Japan is slowly coming towards an end I started thinking about if I really have made good use of my time so far and what I am still missing. I came up with this list:

  • Visit at least 3 major Islands (Honshu, Kyushu, Hokkaido, Shikoku, Okinawa)
  • Do Karaoke until dawn
  • Stay at a Japanese friend’s house
  • Visit Onsen regularly
  • Talk to a Japanese person every day
  • Go to a Karaoke with a girl you like
  • Get lost in Tokyo
  • Visit a rural place
  • Go to a Hanami (花見) with only Japanese people
  • Go to a Purikura (プリクラ)
  • Sleep at a temple
  • Sleep in a Ryokan (旅館)
  • Soak in a wild hot spring
  • Eat Sashimi (刺身)
  • Spend a night in a Love Hotel
  • Visit Yasukuni Shrine (靖国神社)
  • Eat Fugu (ふぐ)
  • Have a BBQ with Japanese friends

Some items are already checked, but others are still open. . .

More suggestions are always welcome!
