The 5 Best Places In Japan For Solo Travel

The 5 Best Places In Japan For Solo Travel

Have you ever been to a place where ancient tradition and modern lifestyle coexist so harmoniously? Culturally irresistible, enigmatic Japan brings together the present and the future right in front of your eyes. Do not miss these 3 destinations.

  1. Kiyosumi-Shirakawa

    Meet an enchanting neighbourhood in the hidden district of Tokyo. Embark on a cycling tour in the backstreet and get lost in the warren of alleys. Check out the hidden temple where Buddhists conduct their ceremonies. To wind up your day, try some curry bread, a bowl of ramen, and some craft beer.

  2. Kyoto

    With shrines, temples, food stalls, and museums, there is so much that makes Kyoto an ideal destination for solo travel in Japan. The ancient capital is best known for Buddhist vegetarian fare, tofu, and kaiseki cuisine. Spend your morning at Kiyomizudera Temple and later on at Kamogawa River Delta. Experience a meditation session with a monk at Daisen-in Temple.

  3. Kyushu

    Enjoy some of the best hot spring resorts and spas in Kyushu Island. The island is famous for volcanic onsen baths, where you are buried in a pit of warm sand up to the neck so you can sweat and release toxins. The experience is as rejuvenating as a full body massage.

Top Tips For Solo Travel In Japan

Top Tips For Solo Travel In Japan

Plan your trip ahead to maximise the fun and make sure you create long-lasting memories. Follow these tips and suggestions if you're planning a solo trip to Japan.

  • Have enough cash

    Predominantly, Japan is a cash-based economy and most ATMs do not accept international credit cards. Save yourself the hassle of hunting stores and hotels that take electronic money by carrying sufficient cash. Don't worry too much about holding large amounts of cash - the country is very safe for solo travellers.

  • Be mindful of Japanese taboos

    Often, you are expected to remove your shoes when entering traditional ryokans, homes, onsens, and certain spas. You will know when to do so because shoe racks and lockers are at the entrances of such establishments. Remember, when you are on public transportation, you cannot talk on your mobile phone.

  • Japan is a left-driving country

    Look to your right before crossing the road, as you would in the UK. Pedestrians may walk on the left and right sides though.
