Though I was in Japan since July, this post will cover only my trip made by Van in August.
Van picked up by Narita. 3 issues: Driving on the left, roads are tiny, and a lot of signs are on the road and are worn away. Drove to Nikko and slept in the parking spot of a hotel.
Turns out the hotel had a fancy car inside, can't remember what. There was also some interesting scarecrows overlooking the valley. Visited the temples and stuff.
