However, as tourists we have many preconceived notions about certain countries. For example, the first time I thought of visiting Japan, I had made up my mind about the fact that I was going to have a language problem in the country, but the people of Japan, proved me wrong. Every tourist spot is full of tour guides who know both Japanese and English. So, if you want to go sightseeing, first get hold of a good guide, for they know the best places in Japan, which are truly worth a visit. The Japanese race is quite proud and some people might not be very welcoming but on the whole, the country is magnanimous.

They will find it easy to go about the country, buy supplies as almost everything is available in the country. To save money a tourist can purchase a Japan Rail pass. This pass will cover the entire Japanese Rail network but not the subway route in Tokyo.

This will help you understand the country and its people better.
