My best travel tips
Access 4G LTE Wi-fi across Japan with this pocket router that connects to the Softbank Network:
Eating and drinking
Use Happy Cow to find restaurants for vegan and/or vegetarian options:
Many restaurants have plastic food displays outside to show what they serve.
Japanese convenience stores (7-Eleven, Lawson, Family Mart, etc) are great for cheap and delicious food
Customizing food orders is not common (adding/removing ingredients) at most restaurants (even McDonald’s)
Western chains such as Starbucks, McDonald’s, and KFC are everywhere
Most major tourist areas have English-speaking staff
Local costum
Don’t talk loudly on trains (or talk on the phone).
Don’t walk while eating or drinking (Walking with coffee or Starbucks is generally okay)
Money and cost
Buy Travel Adapter for your electronics.
There is no tipping, so you don’t need to worry about it (Higher-end restaurants and hotels may add a 10% service fee to the bill)
ATMs at 7-Eleven, Family Mart, and Lawson accept overseas bank cards to withdraw Japanese currency
Most places it’s acceptable to pay with a ¥10,000 note (Unless it’s a small food stand or small store)
Tours and attractions
Tokyo Asakusa Rickshaw Tour - 41.90$:
You can buy here your JR Rail Pass in advance if you plan on extensive travel within Japan on the train -
If you’re staying near Tokyo Station and traveling from Narita Airport, take “THE ACCESS” bus for ¥1,000
Get yourself a Suica or Pasmo card at the train ticket machines (These are known as IC Cards and make paying for transit easier)
Avoid rush hour on the trains in Tokyo (7-9 AM and 5-7 PM) and use the cars at either end for fewer people (Take note of the women-only cars during rush hours)
Train announcements are in Japanese and English (there’s English text on most screens) in most major cities (Outside the cities are hit or miss)
The JR Pass is the best way to travel Japan. Not only can you and your family enjoy unlimited rides on most JR trains, but you can also use many of the JR bus services as well. You can ride the famous bullet train, the express Shinkansen! You must purchase this ticket prior to your trip to Japan. Select and purchase your shipping area and seating type from the tour options. At the checkout, you must provide your your full name and title exactly as they appear on your passport, gender (Mr or Ms), a mailing address (no P.O. Box addresses) and phone number. After the purchase is made, the local operator will send you a JR Pass Exchange Voucher and detailed instructions by FedEx within 4 business days to the provided address.
