For those who are still keen on japan, this is a real deal not to be missed from expedia. it's a saving off hotel stay. Recommend Tokyo Prince Hotel for nice location and environment. only for 72 hours.

(i am not related to expedia okay!)

airfare is about $1300, that means $800 per person ($1600 for two pax) for 6 nights and six breakfast plus seat in coach to those places ..... not cheap

6 nites in those cities won't cost more than $900 for two, breakfast included.

for $700 you can get a nice rental car and roam all over the place, more than stuttgart nuremberg and wurzburg

the above is assuming a group 2

if a family of 4 traveling, could save more

that is the reason we always DIY for family vacations

book airtickets 350 days in advance

book hotels in advance

book car rental in advance

work out the detailed itin near to it

even if the total cost ended up like packaged price, it is still worth it because for the same cost we got better hotels and got the luxury of freedom and unhurried holidays
