My two favorite things in the world: pickles and free stuff. I’m helpless in the face of Japanese samples.
Gorge yourself on sushi and pay per plate (it’s worth it, I promise).
Okay, so I couldn’t afford to eat here, but the views alone were well worth the short train ride from Kyoto.
The best things in Japan are free.
Probably not best to rely on this sort of dough before planning your trip.
