Product Description:
Why should I choose this guide book instead of any other?


Top 4 Reasons:

- It's cheaper than other guide books

- Fellow other travellers and I tried everything in the travelguide ourselves and I describe in detail to you how we've done it, so that you can travel to the sights on your own and can save money on expensive guided tours or means of transport
- it's very light because you can access it from your phone or an e-reader
- it will give you lots of inspiration and tells you about hidden gems you don't want to miss
- it's the best DIY budget travel guide for Japan


There are many great guide book options out there. Deciding on one can even be a bit overwhelming. When I travel, I usually rely on Lonely Planet, since in my opinion, they manage it better than anybody else to mention the most interesting places and the best things to see and do, plus you have it all compact in one book. However, there are two disadvantages: since so many people work on the other guide books, they are quite costly and if you carry them with you as a book, they are also pretty heavy and take a lot of space. Which I never have, when I travel.
Somehow my suitcase or backpack always gets too full. Therefore, I always jot down some notes before I start my travels but I hardly ever carry a guide book with me, except maybe as an e-reader. The second thing I don’t like about the other guide books is that even though they mention all the good places or transport options, they don’t explain how to do it. For example, what is the easiest option to go on a hike near Tokyo and even have a spectacular view on Mt. Fuji? Or or how would the locals travel to this place and where would the locals eat? In Japan it's really best if you know exactly where you want to go because of the language barrier. "I love Japan" will help you overcome any of these difficulties.
In “I love Japan” you find all my personal experiences of my trips to Japan. I loved every minute I spent in this versatile country. Stunning mountain views, bustling cities, calm and beautiful temples and unexpected sights at which you can only stare in awe. Not to mention the delicious Japanese food. I planned all my trips carefully with ideas out of all the good guide books I could find, so you don't have to spend this money anymore. Plus I used TripAdvisor and many helpful blogs. So, if you want to have a more personal experience than the usual tourist and have some actual explanations how to have the best possible experience in a place, this guide book is definitely right for you.
