How did you get involved in travel?

"I was lucky enough to travel for the first time to Japan in 2016 as a student and I can not describe enough how much in love I fell with Japan! Since the first day, I knew I had to live here somehow, the city of Tokyo has a special atmosphere like nowhere else, the food, people, places, and sights from the city-life to more remote places like the Onsens (natural hot springs) in Hakone, Japan has everything to surprise you.

One of the things I enjoyed the most is the feeling of discovering something absolutely new, getting to know a whole different perspective of things, learning when you thought you knew everything.. is one of the best feelings in the world (Visiting Japan you will be 100% of the time discovering amazing this amazing country)

Wanting to help others to fall in love with Japan as much as I am and showing them all the amazing things they will discover I set myself the goal of returning to Japan.. and amazingly I did it! I am lucky enough to work in Japan Travel with a huge amazing group of experts and regional partners all over Japan who share the same love and passion in what they do like me!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Everything you will experience here is out of the ordinary, the people kindness, warmth and let's not forget the views and the food!

When I first visited Japan I remember not even knowing how to use chopsticks (can you imagine that?!) I struggled a lot the first days, couldn’t speak the language, didn’t have many friends and was scared of everything, after a while I stopped being hard on myself I realized that these experiences are the ones that change you that traveling opens your mind to new things and that you discover a lot of yourself!

Being in Japan and traveling around the country made me live things that under other circumstances I would’ve been able to know. I discovered that my favorite food is Okonomiyaki (Osaka’s traditional dish, 100% recommend it) and drink (Milk tea) if you are a foodie Japan is the right place to visit, Japanese cuisine goes far beyond only sushi!

As a solo traveler, one of the things that made more impact on me while traveling in Japan is the safety you live here every day, the willingness of people to always help you out and the freedom that gives you to immerse in the culture of Japan"

December is the start of winter across Japan, but what that means in reality varies from north to south and east to west. In the northern island of Hokkaido, expect temperatures below freezing and snow. In southern parts of Kyushu, earlier in the month, you may still see autumnal colors. Here are a few important things to know about visiting Japan in December.

Japan in November: Travel Tips, Weather, and More

By November, Japan has well and truly entered autumn mode. Towards the end of the month, the leaves on the trees turn red and gold in central and southern parts of the country, and leaf-viewing parties are second only to flower-viewing parties to the Japanese. Temperatures are mild in many places, and rainfall low, so November is a great time to travel to Japan.
