Minimize the learning curve, and travel as if it’s your 10th trip.. not your first.
The #1 thing I ALWAYS recommend to first-time travelers to new countries is to do some research!
You simply MUST familiarize yourself with the local culture, customs, and ALL of the potential headaches and barriers you’ll face.
Japan is the most unique and mysterious culture you’ll find on the earth. Japanese traditions date back over 1,000 years, and today’s Japan is a magical blend of the old samurai culture once secluded from the outside world, and the new technology, pop culture and economic powerhouse it’s become.
It’s truly an alien world! You could spend lifetimes exploring Japan without scratching the surface. Trust me, I spent years there…
Unfortunately, you don’t have that much time!
Japan: An Insider’s Guide for the Savvy Traveler provides eager travelers with quick, to the point information on the culture, the quirks, recommendations on the best things to do, and how to avoid ALL of the problems you’ll encounter… all in one book!
You will learn:
- How to prepare for your trip, travel arrangements, which technology you’ll need, and tips for getting around upon arrival.
- Key cultural differences that will prevent you from embarrassing yourself OR getting into trouble.
- The best activities to do, and how to participate like a local.
- How to read people, navigate the cities and always what areas are best to explore AND avoid.
Most importantly: How to ingrain yourself and experience Japan like you’ve lived there for years.
These things I have learned over many years living in Japan, and I assure you it took every minute of that time to learn them well.
After reading this book, you’ll be so many steps ahead of other travelers you’ll feel sorry for them.
Available in both eBook and paperback.
