Are you planning a trip to Japan for sightseeing? Have you checked out all of the resources that are available on the Internet and in guide books to help plan your journey? Do you need a second opinion about where to go and how to go there?
Well, you’ve come to the right place! (Hopefully.)
My name is Jose, and I’ve loved Japan since I was a little kid. My interest in the Japanese culture got into high gear in 2002, and in 2004 I fulfilled my goal of visiting the island country known as the “Land of the Rising Sun.”
I have now been to Japan twice, most recently in 2008, and I am hoping to visit for a third time soon. My personal experiences, combined with my extensive research, have helped me to truly enjoy what the country has to offer. And now, I’d like to share my experiences with you.
On this blog, I’ll present my side when it comes to planning and enjoying a trip to Japan. I’ll share some tips, recommendations, and other odds and ends that I have learned through my own personal experience, research, or through the mouths of others that I know. There will also be a particular emphasis on Japan’s train transportation network, renowned throughout the world for its safety, punctuality and reliability.
This information is a companion to my Jose’s Japan Tips web site.
This blog is not meant to be your sole destination to plan your trip. I have created it to assist you in your planning, and to help make your trip to Japan the best that it can possibly be.
