You know how you’ve always wanted to go to Japan, because you think it might be amazing and spectacular? Well, you are right! I travelled in Japan for a few weeks back in 2010, so before the proverbial shit hit the radiation fan. And I must say I frikkin’ loved it: the food, the people, the cities, the countryside, the food, the sake, the temples, did I say food? Aargh, I would go back in an instant.
Okay, I’ve thought about it. Let’s go back. Preferably in May or June, since you can fly Alitalia, from Brussel via Rome to Tokyo for only 257 euros round trip. 257, 257, 257, really? Yes, really, but you need to move fast. And you need to don’t mind that you’ll not be returning to Brussels, but to Budapest instead (which is also awesome!). Here you’ll find an example of the itinerary. I’m not sure how many seats are still available on how many flights, but it might be worth checking out. They also have a 284 euro fare, if you want to leave from Brussels and return to Amsterdam. In both cases you still have to find your way home to Brussels, but with WizzAir from Budapest (for about 40 euros) or the train from Amsterdam (for about 25 euros) you’ll still looking at ridiculously cheap transportation.
If this didn’t convince you to book, these pictures might.
Thanks for the tip, @fotograaf!
