Our resident Englishman and Japanophile, Ben, is here to tell you why the next plane ticket you book should be a one way ticket to Japan.
When I first decided to move to a foreign country on my own for the first time, I had literally no idea where to go. There were so many places! How could I possibly choose?
In the end, I decided on Tokyo, Japan. I decided by basically spinning a globe and going to where my finger landed. I can’t describe how happy I am that my finger landed on Japan. I have travelled all over the world and yet I have not found a single place that even comes close to how extraordinary Japan is. It is easily my favourite country. So, if you are having difficulty deciding where to go, I’ve decided to compile a list of 100 reasons why you should visit. That should save you from spinning a globe and accidentally turning up in a place you don’t like – this has also happened to me.
If you are already interested in Japan, then I hope this list will provide a little boost for you to get yourself out there. Obviously there are more than 100 reasons why you should visit Japan and we will cover them in the future, but this should provide enough for you to get started! Ganbatte ne!
