Hello, everyone!

If you’ve always wanted to see Japan, you’re not alone. There are so many different places around the world that are just incredible. We don’t get long on this earth, so being able to see some of them is something that many of us want. Of all the different corners of the world, it’s Asia that can offer the most to many people. And when you’re planning a trip to Asia, Japan should always be on your list. But because there’s just so much more to Japan that city life that you often see, Tokyo style, you should think about the different ways you can see all sides to Japan. So let’s talk you through some options to do just that.


Take A Monumental Tour

First of all, you might like to try and make the most of your Asian explorations by seeing as much as you can in the short time that you’ll be there. This is where something like the Japan Tours & Travel with G Adventures comes in. Because when you take a monumental tour, you’re going to get to see the best spots, take in the most notable sights, and experience a range of different travel style. From Tokyo to Kyoto to Osaka, you can often choose a tailor-made tour that suits your travel needs too.


Make It A Foodie Mission

But there are so many more ways to take in all that Japan has to offer. If you’re a foodie and you love nothing more than to take in different cultures, you might like to think about taking a more foodie-centric tour. And you can definitely enjoy much more than just sushi too. Tokyo is spoilt for choice when it comes to Michelin star restaurants, but you can also take in the street food scenes across the city, along with Kyoto and Osaka too.


Two-Wheel It

Maybe you’re more interested in sticking in one place and exploring that area as much as you can? When that’s the case, you might like to think about making most of your cultural explorations on two wheels. Getting around like Tokyo can be best on bike. How else are you going to get from the ancient Sensō-ji temple to the Odaiba shopping center in record time?


See The Different Seasons

When you’re planning a trip, it’s tempting to want to take it during your summer break or even just out of season, such as right now in fall. But, there are so many reasons why you should visit Japan in winter too. Not only will it be less busy, but you’ll get to take in the snow-spread sights and enjoy the snow festival itself!


Explore Island Life

Or maybe you want to be able to see a different side to Japan altogether? Aside from the cities and countryside in between, and then both blanketed in snow, you could also get a taste of island life – Japanese style! From Honshu to Ishigaki to Okinawa Island, there are so many picturesque and idyllic spots to Japan that could give you the best of both sides to seeing Japanese culture.

As always, thank you for visiting and have a great day!

    Wonderful guide! I’ve always wanted to visit in Japan 🙂 also, the fact that my favourite band has shared snaps from there might be one of the reasons. (The band is not Japanese, they’re touring there at the moment.)

    Lovely! I’ve always dreamed of going to Japan and next summer that dream will come true. We’ve booked 10 days in Japan. We’ll fly to Osaka and return flight from Tokyo. Probably we’ll also take a train pass to explore a bit other places too. It’s super difficult to decide where to go – there soooo much to see in there! I’d love to explore all the teaseremonies, classical Ryokans, beat of Tokyo, temples, hot springs… So hard to decide! 🙂
