Places to Go
In this section of the guide I’ll be talking about different places you may want to go to. I tried to be as concise and informative as possible.

So you’re ready to go to Japan. What will you need? What might be helpful?
I’m hoping that this guide is able to answer those questions and more for you. Note that a lot of my guide will be based on Tokyo, since most of my experience involves Tokyo.
One disclaimer however, I am by no means a guru sharing expert advice. I’d just like to share my personal experience and hope it sheds some insight on what to expect.

This summer, I took a 1 month trip to Japan. It’s a bit of a long post, but I hope you’ll enjoy it.
It’s my second time visiting, though I treat it as my first since the last time was 5 years ago, and I think I was a little too young to enjoy the place.
For the first few days I stayed in a hotel, but for the remainder of the month we rented an apartment.
Many places can be found online where they specifically rent to foreigners for short periods starting from about a month.
I highly recommend doing this because it will save you a lot as opposed to living in hotels.
The first night when we arrived, we were staying in Ikebukuro. It was quite rainy as you can see.
Japan is quite hot during this period of the year, so even though it was rainy it was quite warm.
That’s why the rain felt very cool and relaxing, although you would get soaked pretty fast.
Dinner on the first night in Tokyo. We went to what I would assume to be like any other Japanese Restaurant.
Food was delicious, and truly miles above what many sushi places offer in Canada.
