Rediscovering Japan: A Local’s Guide to Hidden Gems and Timeless Traditions

Spot I have visited

Greetings, fellow travelers!

My name is Kazuya, and I call the bustling city of Tokyo my home. I’ve nurtured a deep passion for travel, so much so that I’ve explored every single one of Japan’s 47 prefectures! (The star marks are some of the places I have visited)

From traditional inns and hot springs to delectable cuisine, from the serene beauty of nature to vibrant festivals and pop culture – Japan is a tapestry of diverse and abundant delights.

I’ve journeyed to places that most tour companies might not recommend: the lesser-known, yet culturally rich and impactful destinations. It is this uncharted Japan that I’ve grown to love and want to preserve. Through this blog, I aim to share this love with people from all around the world. I hope to be the catalyst for your awe and appreciation of Japan.

Japan is renowned for its safety, with instances of scams being a rarity. However, I understand the apprehensions one might have when venturing into unfamiliar territory, be it concerns about the culture, rules, or transportation. Moreover, no one wants to squander their precious vacation time due to unforeseen hiccups or inefficient plans.

With you in mind, this blog will not only introduce you to marvelous spots but will also guide you on how to get there, make reservations, and heed certain precautions. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. I’m here to assist in any way I can.

Even if you can’t make it to Japan in person, I hope this blog allows you to enjoy its splendors from afar.

So, welcome aboard!
