These Top 10 Japan Travel Tips are based on what I wish I knew before moving to Japan. This serves as a Japan Guide for travelers planning Japan travel and what to do when stopped by a Japanese Police officer. This Tokyo guide also shows what not do in Japan as well as things not do in Japan based on Japanese culture. These Japanese Travel Tips cover Tattoos in a Japanese Onsen, Non-tipping culture, riding the train in Japan, Wifi in Japan, Japanese Hotels, Japanese Police, etc. Basically, these are the things to know before going to Japan. More information is listed below.

Another options is to get a SIM card for your unlocked mobile device. You can go to most major electronics store and they should carry it. There are a few options, but I’ll cover the 2 basic types that I think is the best for travelers.
(1) SIM card with a daily data transfer limits 220mb per day. You can get it for 7 days or 15 days.
(2) SIM cards with a total data transfer limit of 1.5 Gb or 3GB that work for 30 day period. It doesn’t have a daily transfer limit which I personally prefer. And if I use up all the data in only a few days, you can just buy a new card.

I'm from TOKYO JAPAN, I've been living here for a long time. I'll be your Tokyo Travel Guide, taking you to the spots I love as well as showing you what to do all around Japan and maybe sometimes overseas. I'm also into Tech so you'll see a few videos about my drone and other cool toys I discover. In short, the channel is all about what I Love, Japan, Food, Travel, Tech and most likely coming FROM-TOKYO, my home.
