Japan Travel Guide

Beautiful destinations and useful tips for your vacation


Japan really blew our minds. We had been dreaming of visiting Japan for a long time and our expectations were huge! We thought that this could only go wrong, but Japan fulfilled all our expectations!

Travelling in the country is very easy and the infrastructure is comparable to ours. The fastest and most pleasant way to travel is by train.

We recommend that you use the Japan Rail Pass as it allows you to travel as often as you want. It’s worth it! You have to take care of the pass before your trip. Here are our tips for ordering the Japan Rail Pass.

For detailed information and travel tips, read our travel reports. We wish you a lot of fun with your travel planning.
