Planning a vacation in Japan?
|Hello and thanks for visiting my Japan Travel Guide!|
Japan is a country of astounding contrast and beauty. With this website, I want to take you on an armchair journey to explore it from length to length, visiting every prefecture, every city, to admire all the sights - and doing so from the comfort of home. Whether you are viewing this website as preparation for a visit to Japan, or simply browsing it for fun, I hope you will derive lots of viewing pleasure.
Accommodation usually consumes a large proportion of any travel budget. So if you are traveling to Japan (or elsewhere), it is prudent to do a bit of research, to find the lowest rate for your hotel room. Different booking sites offer the same room at a different rate, so it pays to compare. To take away the tediousness of visiting different sites, use a hotel search engine, like the one on this page. Just key in your destination and travel period, and it will show you the best price among all major online booking sites. This guarantees you the lowest price every time.
The official currency in Japan is the Japanese Yen (JPY). Here's latest exchange rates in the last 24-hours.
Lastly, let me line up a selection of books which you may want to read ahead of your trip. You can get them directly from Amazon.
