...We wanted to be in different areas and try out the different hotels for various reasons. Also we are starting off the trip in Tokyo, then heading to Kyoto/Osaka/Naoshima and then back to Tokyo for a couple nights so its really only one hotel switch in Tokyo.

looking forward to hearing the food options & reviews there, too. Heard of 1-2 new, high quality Kosher locations. (None in Japan wiki yet.)  Enjoy.

1 night at WAJ 80k HH. Decided to treat my parents.  :)

Ironically, I had to convince them to take me up on the offer. Well actually, they never even agreed. I just booked it and sent them the confirmation.

I'll take it if they say no

You think a week is too much? What would you suggest? In the beginning planning stages now.

I wouldn't spend more than about 4 days in Tokyo, there's a lot more to see in other Japanese cities.

i couldn't book anything online so i called them. i originally wanted 3 nights but they only had massive suites available and i didn't have the points for that. CSR said i can switch to 2 nights for a total of 45K for a Premium Delux room. I grabbed it. should i call back??

booked it because it seemed like the best option for me (i'm going off the Venice DD thread). 7/8-7/10. originally wanted 7/7 as well. i'm still not sure what to do for 7/7 because i can't afford another night in Switzerland and i don't want to spend the night at the airport :)

Can it hurt to call?

i'll TAGB
