First post on the Japan forum (eek) ! Im in the very, very early stages of planning an itinerary for a 5 week trip to Japan for April/May 2019. We're planning to visit all the obvious places (tokyo, kyoto, osaka, hiroshima, fukuoka... etc) and potentially flying down to the islands - okinawa maybe...... I have a lot of reading to do! But my immediate question (though I'm sure there will be many more) is at that time of year, is it possible to book hotels as we go - maybe a couple of days in advance rather than just turning up at a destination, adjusting our itinerary as we travel with only the skeleton plan sketched out? Or will we struggle to find accommodation do you think?
Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
