Due to web burn-out and recent life-experience craziness, I decided to just bust a question:
I'll be in Japan again in November/December. I have a half-way nutty goal of visiting every prefecture at least once. There are damn few left at this time. Among them are Oita, Miyazaki, and Okinawa.
I'll be basing out of Tochigi prefecture, holding an all-Japan JR rail-pass. Money is not 'no object', but I can afford a bit.
Do any of you aficiandos know of a swell way to hit these three prefectures...or at least just Okinawa for a day or two without losing two arms and a leg? As in, airlines from X airport...ferries, or nutty crazy hydrofoils with bars stocked with 50+ brands of beer and hot chicks out of James Bond.....or not....
