  1. My "14 days in Japan" itinerary is now available on my shop: 👉

    This is an updated itinerary based on this video and my trips to Japan. The itinerary will cover day-to-day activities, transportation between cities, hotels, restaurants, and a travel budget. I've also included a "Custom Google Maps" for Japan with saved pins and locations that follows the itinerary.

  2. Thank you for your amazing and absolutely not trivial tips. We are just back from our amazing trip in Japan that we organized mostly following your video. Thank you, thank you, thank you from Italy!

  3. I was in Tokyo on April 2023, the Best vacation I have,Japan very beautiful,very clean,and Japanese people very polite and the Best service,i wish to visit Japan again.I love Japan ❤❤

  4. Who knows Japan well? Korea lives right next door. Japan is a war criminal country that went to war with many Asian countries and caused suffering. Japan conducted human experiments using living people and turned women into sex slaves. They forced many men into forced labor, but they did not sincerely apologize and are teaching false history to future generations. Now they are insisting that Korea's Dokdo is their land and are dumping contaminated water from nuclear power plants into the sea. They are friendly in front, but they do a lot of dirty things behind the scenes. We know their real faces through long history. I hope people around the world will no longer be fooled by Japan. Japan will definitely be punished.

  5. questions:

    1) how did you get around the airport when you first got there? i dont want to be confused on where to go or what line to go by but instead have my tickets and just take a train to my hotel.

    2) did you buy your point to point tickets as you went or did you buy them all at once when you got there?

    3) did you book your hotels at each location as you got there or in advance?
