Complete Step-by-Step Guide to Planning Your Trip to Japan

When I got the green light on my Japan holiday, I immediately delved into planning. Planning was essential because I wanted to create a fun and authentic experience. I had been dreaming of visiting for so long that planning was like putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. It can be overwhelming when you start planning a holiday. What do you see? When do you go? How much will it cost? It’s not easy as figuring out step 1, 2 and 3. Sometimes you have to be simultaneously planning to figure out how long you want to go for vs how long you can afford to go for!

My Planning series aims to help answer all your questions about your Japan trip before you left home. Each week I will run through all stages of planning, from creating your bucket list to budgeting. By the end of the series, you will be packed and ready to go!
