Japan Travel Guide

So you want to go to Japan. Feeling slightly intimidated about it?
We will inform you all about how to organise your trip. What you need to have with you, and to visit the best places!

Our lecture has a combined 20 years of experience in travelling to Japan, and we love to share what we have learned in that time. We start off with the very basics: what are the things you really need to have in order? We will touch on when to plan your trip, with pros and cons for every period of the year. You'll learn about which Japanese holidays to avoid and what you really want to experience there.

We will also tell you about other necessities, like airplane travel, accommodation, as well as travel methods and costs in Japan. There are so many options to choose from, all of which can help you to travel on a budget. As a final part of our Japan travel basics, we will provide you with tips and tricks to survive your trip.

Moving on to the second part of our lecture, we will tell you about our must-see places in different areas in Japan (Japan is not just Tokyo, right?). We will provide you with tips for shopping, food, culture, events and awesome geeky things. You will be ready to put together the trip of your dreams!

We hope to see you at our paneltalk! This lecture will be given by:
Gino - Akihabara explorer, Japanese baseball fan and onsen enthusiast.
Sanne - Lover of (almost) all Japanese foods, skincare fanatic and Rurouni Kenshin fan.
