Preparation Task One You must research the top five places that you wish to visit during your upcoming trip to Japan. Make a list of these five locations on the chart on the next page. Make sure you list the city and island in which they will be found. Be sure to consider your options well. Check out the map at the website below to help you make your decisions:http://www.jtb.co.jp/http://www.jtb.co.jp/ There are some famous places listed on the slides following the chart.

Time Task Two You will only have one week in which to complete your travel. Make a schedule for your trip. Write down on the chart on the next page all of your travel dates, departure times and arrival times. Consider the most direct travel options. You do not want to spend all of your time getting from point A to point B. You will probably want to consult the travel schedules on the slides following the chart:

Money Task Three Now you have completed your selection of places to visit and travel schedule. Your next job is to plan your travel budget. You will have 150,000 yen. It sounds like a large amount of money, but remember you must pay for all of your hotels, travel tickets, admission fees, and meals.
Money On the chart on the next two pages plan how you will spend your money. You should refer to the information on the websites listed on the pages following the chart.
Pamphlet Task Four On the following pages take the trip you have planned and create a pamphlet. You will be the guide of this tour. Be sure to include all of the location, time, and price information which you have already gathered. Photos are welcome but not required. You will be presenting your trip plan and pamphlet to the class.
