Traveling to Japan: Tips from Global Basecamps Expert

Although Japan is often featured as a bustling country with booming cosmopolitan cities, it also offers vast countrysides, sprawling mountain ranges, gorgeous beaches and quaint towns. Travelers can visit in any season; spring and summer feature warm weather attractions and festivals, while fall and winter offer spectacular foliage, winter sports and hot springs. At least a week is necessary to truly experience popular cities like Tokyo and Kyoto, and just a few more days can allow exploration into areas off the beaten path like Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Western-style food and lodging are available, but to truly experience Japanese culture, visitors can stay in ryokans, or Japanese-style inns. Traveling to Japan is easy, fun and rewarding. Global Basecamps expert Andrés lived there for four years; in this video he shares his expertise to answer your initial questions and help you navigate the country.
