Japan is a country that we long wanted to visit - but as budget travelers we were hesitant to go to the notoriously expensive country. However, when we offered the chance to house and pet sit in the heart of Tokyo, we used the opportunity to spend 3 weeks exploring the country. We designed a route that that allowed us to experience three diverse destinations: historic Kyoto, Lake Kawaguchi near Mount Fuji and sprawling Tokyo.
