The First step, flying to Tokyo.
Hotel in Tokyo
One day I can visit Japan's iconic Mount Fuji on Tokyo's most popular day tour, then return to Tokyo by the famous Shinkansen Bullet train. I'll also enjoy lunch on Mt Fuji, cruise Lake Ashi and ride the aerial cableway at Mount Komagatake for amazing views of the Hakone National Park. This is about $138.28 to do.
Also, one day I can check out Meiji shrine, it's dedicated to the late 19th-century emperor who opened Japan to the West, Tokyo's most famous Shinto shrine is wonderfully serene and austere, not colorful or flashy like other Asian places of worship, and is less of a tourist trap. Meiji-jingu is open sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.
I must also check out, shinjuku gyoen national garden. Yoyogi Park is the most entertaining green space in Tokyo, the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is also one of the most beautiful in my opinion. The admission is about $3.
I could also do some other things that consist of, going to the Shibuya crossing, and go to a bunch of different stores (mandarake, kiddyland, Roppongi Hills, and also I need to go through Shibuya station. It's known for it's youth fashion.) (I'll set about $3,000 aside to shop. I love to shop!)
Solution:Find somewhere in the Tokyo airort to switch my dollars to Yen.
Problem: Learning how to speak their language
Solution: Getting a language learning software.

History and Culture
At about the same time, warrior clans were rising as a distinct class known as the samurai. In the year 1192, the Minamoto clan set up a military government under their leader, Yoritomo. He was a military dictator. For the next 700 years, shoguns from a succession of clans ruled in Japan.
First contact with the West came in about 1542, when a Portuguese ship that was off course arrived in Japanese waters. Suspicious of Christianity the Portuguese supported of a Japanese revolt, the shoguns of the Tokugawa period (1603–1867) prohibited all trade with foreign countries. Only a Dutch trading post at Nagasaki was permitted. Western attempts to start trading again failed until 1853.
In 1868, the emperor Meiji came to the throne, and the shogun system was abolished.
