From the article: "Prices start from ¥180,000 ($1,765) per person for the two-night trip."

Uh, how far can I go for $85?


Hmm... looks like I'll be
hitchhiking on my next
trip to Japan...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

Considering riding a Shinkansen one stop from Shinagawa to Shin-Yokohama was $40 each way in 94 you MIGHT be able to get on this one and look around for $85.
Can't model worth a darn, but can research like an SOB.
