Are you traveling soon to Japan for a vacation? Or maybe you are planning towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Where will be your first stop?
When planning a trip it is easy to get carried away by the excitement of exploring a new country and forget to plan the little important details.
If you have never been to Japan, visiting for the first time can be a little overwhelming. Filled with beautiful sakura watching spots and incredibly delicious sushi, Japan is an amazing mix of advanced technology and a unique culture.
Visiting a new place is often exciting, but all that excitement can fizzle out quickly if you are always lost and trying to find your way. In Japan, the busy train stations and the impenetrable language barrier can be the starting point to the tricky nature of a first-time visit to Japan.
The aim of this article is to make the whole process of traveling to Japan less of a mystery and more of a life-changing experience. Visitors to Japan take numerous routes to criss-cross the country, but this article focuses on the typical route from Narita Airport to Tokyo to Kyoto along the Tokaido Shinkansen. Hopefully, you find these tips helpful:
1. Luggage delivery services at the airport are the place to start.
If there is one thing travelers hate the most, it’s walking around with their luggage. Once you arrive at Narita, we highly recommend you drop off your luggage in one of the airport luggage delivery counters. These services exist to make your life easier.
They ship your bags and items straight to any address you specify. After doing this, you are good to explore the city bag-free. To make sure there are no loose ends, always inform the manager of your lodge about your luggage arrival.
Well, that’s a good start. By now you should be feeling pretty good. One down, more to come
