My husband and I are thinking of taking our tax return next year and putting it towards a trip to Tokyo or Paris (since we've always wanted to go to both). Neither of us read or speak Japanese (though I'd try and take a course before we go so I can at least keep us out of trouble ), but we're still thinking of travelling out there.
What is a reasonable budget (we've been students for the last 4 years, so we can live on a budget and we don't need super fancy accomodations - seriously, a Japanese version of Motel 6 would be fine!) for hotel, food and TDL/TDS (2 days at each) and transportation around Toyko? As for airfare, we'll just grab whatever is cheapest. Also, what is the best time (i.e., off season) to travel to Tokyo?
