Japan Travel Guide

When I get asked, “What’s my favorite country to travel?” I will probably tell you a list because it’s impossibly difficult for me to narrow it down to a single country. One thing is for sure, Japan is one of my absolute favorites!

Japan is futuristic yet still retains strong ties to tradition. You’ll find serene temples surrounded by beautiful views of nature. People are very warm and the food is delicious. Japan offers nearly all of the kinds of sights and experiences that get me excited when I travel. Best of all, getting around is very easy! You can see a lot even on a short trip.

Pro tip: Remember to set your minimum/maximum price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
