The ink on my husband's orders isn't even dry yet, and my dad is already making plans to come visit us next summer. His ideal trip he's planning is to fly into Moscow, and then take a 7 day train trip (he LOVES traveling by train!) to Vladavostok, then take a boat/ferry to Japan, and eventually fly back to the states from Tokyo. Aside from his passport, is there anything he needs to know? He has traveled to South America several times (for the coffee, of course!) and he's comfortable traveling. He REFUSES to go to Disney Tokyo, but even at almost 70 years old, is excited about visiting Hooter's! I want to make his trip enjoyable and memorable. What age appropriate sights are a must for him?
Thanks for all the responses.
Hooter's is in Tokyo - I learned of it from this website! My dad is a HUGE history buff - we're direct descendents of JEB Stuart and Wesley Merritt, so obviously anything history related (i.e. Hiroshima) will be a must see for him. He doesn't like crowds so much, so I will tell him that summer months probably won't be all that fun for him. He's from Houston and has lived there his entire life, so humidity won't be that bad for him. He's used to it!!My mom died 8 years ago, and I love the fact that my dad is out there and living his life with gusto. He's been all over the US from Washington DC to Key West to New York City to San Francisco! Of course, the best trips he took was to see us in awful places like Lemoore CA and Jacksonville NC He's an avid fisherman and boater, so something along those lines would be exciting for him as well. My family and I are HUGE Disney fans (cliche and corny, I know!) and we're excited about going. My dad won't even go to Disney in the states. Such a party pooper!!!
He goes to Costa Rica for the "coffee" so I assume he will be going to Russia for the "vodka" and Japan for the "sake." My dad...man I love him!!!!
