My best travel tips
Eating and drinking
Use Happy Cow to find restaurants for vegan and/or vegetarian options: www.happycow.net
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
Language
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)

Transportation
Buy 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)
