There’s a plethora of things to know before you go to Japan.
I’ve lived in Japan for the majority of my 20′s and I go back to Japan twice a year. So when it comes to Japan, I think I can help.
First things first. Get a guide book. Seriously. Get one with a map of Japan, a map of the major cities’ subway systems. Without it you’ll be lost the moment you step out of the airport. If possible grab one with some phrases.
I’ll cover quite a few topics in this multi part series, I want to cover the following;
- Planning (Part.2)
- preparing (Part.3)
- traveling within Japan (Part.4)
- communication [phone/data/wifi] (part.5)
- hotel (Part.6)
- shopping (Part.7)
- things to eat (Part.8)
- things to bring (Part.9)
So this must be my 100th attempt at blogging. I started a blog in the 90′s and had it going for a while. While I lived in Japan but then I just got too busy. Early 20′s in Tokyo, single and paid fairly well. Life doesn’t get any better. So here I am mid 30′s re attempting something that I enjoyed in my early 20′s
