Travelling to Japan.
Amazing cities, amazing views, amazing people. Travel to Japan for culture, fashion, technology, food and fun.
Many people think, 'How will I be able to travel without being able to speak or read Japanese?'. Well... travelling around Japan is fun and exciting and as long as you plan in advanced, you should be able to maneuver around easily. The locals are very friendly and are willing to help and they appreciate when you can greet and thank in thier language.
Some basics are;
Arigatōgozaimashita - Thank you
Kon’nichiwa - Hello
Sayōnara - Good bye
Depending on the city you are travelling to, will depend on your transportation method. The prices are average prices for travelling, however if you are going city to city then I recommend the Japanese Rail Pass, which can be found at https://www.jrailpass.com. The JR Pass allows you to travel different cities in Japan for 7,14 or 21 days with unlimited journeys. This may be on the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) or selected stations within each city.
I stayed in Japan for 15 days but I brought a standard 7 day pass costing me £200 gbp. Great value for money.
This took me from Tokyo - Kyoto - Osaka - Hiroshima - Osaka - Tokyo.
I brought a standard pass as the trains are clean and very spacious. They have reclining chairs with electric plug sockets and space to put jackets, bags and luggage. Compared to the UK trains the Shinkansen is luxurious and can get you from city to city in no time. The speed of the train is fast and there are small shops on the train should you require food and drinks.
Eating in Japan
Whether your Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Meat lover or anything goes, there is something for everyone.
I found that on every corner in each city there is somewhere to eat.
