I decided to travel to Japan, but I’m curious what kind of country i am and what kind of preparation I should prepare! I’ve compiled a point of interest when i travel to Japan.

To begin with, Japan is an island nation in East Asia, consisting of four relatively large islands of Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu, and other small islands.
It has the tenth largest population in the world (as of 2021), and is characterized by its tourist destinations and enjoyment wherever you go.

I’m curious what kind of attractions there are in Japan.
I tried to pick up the main highlights!

Points of Interest in Japan

There are sushi, ramen, yakiniku and other foods.

There may be Japanese restaurants in your country, but the real thing is a little different.
It is important whether the rice you are traveling to is delicious or not.
Japanese food strictly manages hygiene, and there is no need to worry about food poisoning when eating what is sold raw.
This site also introduces the recommended shops in various places.

The contents that can be enjoyed in each region are very different, and it is not tired.

Kyoto where old Japanese culturesuch, such as maiko, remains dark
Tokyo with a vibrant city such as Shibuya and a bitter downtown culture
Heavy snow zone where you can play with snow, which is ideal for skiing
Active volcanoes are still active, and high-quality hot springs are available in Kyushu.
Okinawa is warm all year round and enjoying a vacation
And so on.

Because the difference of the climate is greatly different in the region, there is a very wide way of playing even if it is said Japan.
I’m sure you’ll find a place you want to go.

Distinctive cultures such as ninjas, samurai, anime and manga flourish.

Ninjas and samurai who flourished in old Japan are now almost extinct, but you can still see their traces in various places. We will introduce it on this site, such as Osaka Castle.
In recent years, the culture of manga and anime has become more active. We’ll also explain where you can enjoy it.

Very secure except in a few areas

When you travel, you usually worry about theft and fraud, but you don’t need to worry about it in Japan. With the exception of some areas such as Kabukicho, you can relax and travel to anywhere in Japan.
The area i think is a dangerous area is described on the following pages.

Very comfortable except summer

You can travel comfortably except in the summer months from July to September. Summer is the best season for some summer resorts such as Hokkaido.

Please see on the individual sightseeing spots page for specific tourist attractions and how many days it is recommended to stay!!

What to prepare

You’re at a loss what to prepare for when you travel! I chose the one that I seemed to need about the waiting thing for the trip to Japan, so please refer to it. In addition, suica (IC card only can be bought locally, it is good to buy early after arrival. )

Wifi

There are some areas where there is public wifi, such as Tokyo, but it is better not to trust the wifi because there is a security problem or soon choppy.

Power strip

Japanese hotels and inns have a small number of power strip or are far from beds. If you use a lot of electronic devices such as smartphones, it is recommended to have power strip because it will be very easy to spend. With this, you can plan your trip while lying in bed.

The voltage in Japan is 100V and the frequency is 50Hz ~ 60Hz.

Pants, toothbrushes, umbrellas, water, and food are always available at convenience stores that operate 24 hours a day, so you’ll need a minimum of daily necessities. (There is no convenience store in the mountains)

Suica

The names of pasmo and icoca are different depending on the ticketing company, but they all refer to cash-charged prepaid cards issued by train companies.
It can be used in transportation, restaurants, entertainment facilities, etc., and it becomes very convenient to pay.
You can use the remaining money that you couldn’t use in cash before you return home, so you can use it with confidence.
More information is described in the following articles. (Ticketing method, charge method, refund method, etc.)
