One of the best things about traveling solo is that I can make decisions on my own. I don’t need someone to agree with on where to go, what to do, what to eat, how much to spend, etc. I spent two months carefully planning my itinerary and I made a very detailed one, which I really didn’t follow during the trip. It only served as my guide. I went during autumn season which is the second most popular season to travel in Japan so I really need to plan my timing and budget. I did a lot of research on different websites and blogs and japan-guide.com has been the most helpful and informative.
Tokyo is first city I visited during my Japan trip. It is the a beautiful mix of traditional and modern culture. You can find almost everything here from beautiful parks and temples, great food, trendy neighborhoods, themed cafés, a giant Gundam robot, reliable transportation systems, teens in quirky costumes, a large geek wonderland, and all things kawaii! No wonder Tokyo is one of the world’s most loved cities. If you want to try solo traveling, this is a good place to start.
