Solo travel to Japan

Solo travel to Japan

Hey guys,

I'm 23 and I just graduated college so I wanted to give myself a little present. I've been looking at going to Japan for 10 days but cannot get any of my friends to go. Is Japan a good country to travel solo and if so, are there any good tips/tricks that I could use to maximize my time there?

Also, how much money should I bring? I'm not trying to do it on a budget, but I'm also not trying to break the bank either.

Hello msf91

Welcome to the Solo Travel forum

<<Is Japan a good country to travel solo>>>

Yep, it is safe, fairly easy to travel around and as good as any other for Solo travellers. If you type Japan into the Search Box at the top of this forum, you'll it being references regularly as a possible travel destination for those doing a bit of solo travel.

<<are there any good tips/tricks that I could use to maximize my time there?>>>

In addition to those you can pick up by reading past discussions, you'd further recommend that you visit the Japan forum here at Tripadvisor specifically. From there you can use the same Search Box and seek specific and direct feedback asked to the forum experts there. If you can't find what you are looking for, you can ask directly on the Japan forum and let those who support the Japan forums help you.

Good luck with your trip research and happy travels.
