I couldn’t be more excited to share that I am taking a big bucket list trip to Japan in April with my friends.

It’s something I’ve been dreaming of for years and because it’s a place I’ve never been to, I took a poll on social media asking for recommendations. I can’t thank you enough for the tremendous response. A lot of you asked to see the tips, so I decided to leave them here for you all to reference. Please note that I haven’t cross checked this list, so you may have to do some digging and research on your own. However, I figure it would serve as a great starting point for those of you planning a trip to Japan.

I also found this extremely helpful blog post on Bon Traveler which I’m linking to here (and I borrowed the image for this post from it!).

Have any amazing recommendations? Please leave a comment below!
