My Story

Hi I’m Alex. Like probably most of you, I’ve dreamed of traveling to Japan for a very long time. Since I was a child to be exact. I used to watch anime after coming home from school and I’ve been into playing video games like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts.

Day after day I saw mesmerizing images of Japan and immersed myself in Japanese (rock) music listening to this utterly beautiful language. And so every day my desire to visit Japan grew more and more.

I dreamed of seeing these beautiful temples with my own eyes. I dreamed of trying all these mouthwatering dishes and sweets. My whole teenage years I dreamed of traveling to Japan, seeing Kyoto’s famous shrines, and going to a concert in Tokyo.

Now after many years of visiting Japan, I’ve backpacked through Japan for 7 months, visited all of its 47 prefectures, I’ve been living in Tokyo since 2015.

When I was on vacation in Japan and also for planning my backpacking trip I used japan-guide.com a lot. It’s a good travel guide with a lot of information.

However, after all these years, I noticed that it’s not complete and doesn’t include some really awesome sights. Furthermore, it was really hard to find all the information I needed to plan my backpacking trip in detail.

And so I’ve decided to start this Japan blog and write my own complete travel guide. A travel guide for you, so that you can get the most out of your Japan vacation.
