The second time I went to Japan was in 2015 and that was on my own but was for just 10 days!
I went to Tokyo and then went to Niigata and I met up with a Japanese friend with her boyfriend and I had a good day out with them :)
You said you used to live in Tokyo?
Well I went to Japan for the first time in 2013 with my cousin, but a year before that I went to China and trained in Chinese Martial Arts. But when I went to Japan for the first time, we went to Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nikko and Nara if I remember correctly. Oh yes and we stayed in a Ryokan in Hakone.
