Last fall, my boyfriend and I went to Japan for a short trip. We managed to visit three prefectures in 6.5 days. The trip was short but everything was so worth it and it is our most memorable trip to date. Japan is a very beautiful country; if I could pick a place where I can go over and over again, it certainly would be Japan. But of course, this country being beautiful has its costs, literally — almost everything in Japan is expensive. Don’t be discouraged, though. Through planning and budgeting, I tell you, your dreams of visiting Japan will become a reality!
Even before we booked our ticket, we are fully aware that Japan is an expensive country. Therefore, we made an agreement not to splurge so much. When I was planning our itinerary, I made sure everything was carefully budgeted and planned, up to the smallest of details. I think it took me two or three months to build our complete itinerary. It was a hard job, but I had fun. And although not everything went as planned because I got so ambitious of the number of places we wanted to visit, I am glad I did it because it really helped us a lot. No kidding here, but every time we needed to go to this particular place, I already had a picture of the place in my mind. Thanks to my extensive research and planning. Haha.
Anyway, are your passports and visas now ready for your Japan trip? I am no expert but let me share my experience and give you some tips on how you can fully enjoy your trip without breaking the bank. 🙂
