Why Travel Here?

What Can You Expect?

1) Vending Machines – Japan is in love with them, and they are surprisingly convenient for a variety of purposes you wouldn’t expect.

2) Manners and Protocol – bowing, a big welcome in restaurants, and being respectful are all important aspects of Japan. For example, don’t tip at restaurants!

3) A blend of traditional and modern in Tokyo – on the same street you can expect to see traditional Kimono wearing pedestrians alongside Harajuku Fashion, and everything in between.

4) Everyone speak Japanese – But not everyone speaks English, which includes limited signage.

5) Take off your shoes! People’s houses, certain restaurants (Zashiki and Horigotatsu), Shrines and Temples. Keep an eye out for a place to put your shoes, and if confused, ask!
