Get out of the big city and go see historic Japan
Most people when they come to Japan will see Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto… and little else. In Kyoto you can experience traditional Japan, but it can be a bit crowded…
Take a look at Narai-juku which is on the Nakasendo, an old highway from Edo (old Tokyo) and Kyoto. 11 post towns, some preserved as they were 200 years ago.
See traditional Japan at Narai-juku.
