Japan Travel Guide

The first question I am asked by people when they find out I have spent the last 16 years travelling back and forth between Canada and Japan is: “I’m planning a trip to Japan soon, what do I need to know?” I have compiled this guide for first time, or even experienced travelers to Japan to help you get around and make your Japan experience less daunting and more enjoyable.

I will be releasing this guide in sections, as it is impossible to cover in one short article. The outline below will give you an idea of the various topics I am covering in this guide. Please check this site for updates as each section is released. I will be changing and adding sections as I get more questions, requests for clarification, and for any corrections which may need to occur. You can also feel free to contact me using the Contact Me page if there is a topic you would like me to explore.
