I noticed that the Japan tour includes quite a few meals. Are these at the minshuku or out at restaurants?
for the rest of the meals (mainly lunches and a few dinners) how much do you think we need to budget (in Y or Australian dollars)
lastly (when the tour goes back from Hiroshima towards Tokyo), if I want to leave at Osaka does the train go through Osaka station or just ShinOsaka? Would it go through Kyoto (I doubt that one but thought I would ask as it would be closer to where I want to head to)
