I have a confession to make: I put off traveling to Japan until 2011 because I always thought it was too expensive.
Everyone always told me Japan was one of the most expensive countries in the world. That was the collective wisdom.
But, when I got there, I realized two things: First, I love Japan! It’s one of the most amazing, beautiful, and friendliest countries in the world. It lives up to all the hype.
Second, while Japan is expensive, it’s not out of reach for budget travelers.
There are many cheap ways to enjoy Japan on a budget.
From finding delicious food to affordable hotels to fun activities, you don’t have to pinch every penny have fun.
However, the one thing that is truly expensive in Japan? Quick transportation.
