Spent a month travelling there last year and had an amazing time. Found people extremely helpful and friendly. Friends that found out that I had spent time in Japan assumed that it was really expensive, but Japan can be done on a budget. Hostels/guesthouses from around £10GBP - £15GBP a night and eating can be quite cheap also with the variety of noodle bars and sushi restaurants conviently dotted around. Didn't have too much trouble when it came to getting around and I for one would not like to see it cater too much for westerners as most of the world nowadays is becoming too westernised. There are small pockets of westernisation, but not enough to taint it. I would say that Japan is a must for anyone embarking on world travels!
