I lived in Tokyo and Yokohama 4 years and travel to Japan every year since 2008.
I'm preparing travels guides and i can read/writte japanese.


we are planning to travel to Japan for 2 month in July and August and looking for all helpful tips. What regions the best to visit this time of the year? What is the best way to book reasonably priced accommodations? It any free walking tours in the large cities in english? What is the best way to get to stay in the monastery and get to the not very touristy places?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,


During the past few years of regular travel to Japan, we have seen and helped many tourists struggling with some of the travel basics, simply because Japan is a very unique country and sometimes presents the unexpected. We have also talked to many people who would love to travel to Japan, but are put off by perceived difficulties with language, transport logistics and thinking it is an expensive country to visit.

I travelled in Kanto and Kansai areas of Japan, visited several places/towns/cities, and used train/shinkansen a lot. I will try to help with tips on transportation, accommodation, places of interests, local custom, or anything I might be able to help you with.
