Fun fact: I was an exchange student to Nagoya, Japan. 1 year in 2005/06. Went to high school and stayed with a host family. Japan is like my second home. It feels welcoming, familiar. I was happy to go back there recently, even if it was just for 4 days.
This was my fourth trip to Japan, and first through Kansai Airport. 4 days was way too short, but I took what I could. This is my budgeting for the trip, costing ~RM2500, covering Osaka and Kyoto. Read on for savings tips and travel recommendations 🙂
