Almost every other day i receive emails asking me questions about Japan.
I used to answer really nicely and give suggestions because talking about Japan alone makes me happy, but recently i’m doing that less because when i do, 90% of the time i don’t even get a reply or some sort just to say “thank you” or something along that line, so i started to feel like i’m Wikitravel in an insignificant way. Except that i’m still honored that you consult me before you even go to uncle Google or Wikitravel. So Google/Wiki, i win.
And also, they look upon me as a travel consultant so highly to the point most of the questions asked are like this:
Hi! I’m traveling to Japan in (month) with my (travel companion), i would really appreciate if you can recommend some places to go and things to do there as it’s my first time to Japan.
I am really quite impressed and overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude and immensity of the question alone. It’s almost like asking God: Care to tell me every damn thing you know about the universe?
Fine. Maybe God is less of an asshole like me and he will give you a nicely crafted long and detailed answer written with unicorn hair brush dipped in florescent rainbow beam ink on a piece of fluffy cloud, but there’s a reason why i’m not God, you see.
So, the non-God me have decided to stop answering all emails pertaining questions like that from now on.
Instead, i am going to just give you a link, which contains more than 150 blog posts i have written over 6 years or so regarding a lot a lot a lot a lot a lot of things about Japan. If you still cannot find anything remotely useful for you, then i’ll be damned and can only admit that i am, truly, a shit blogger. I apologize in advance for things you cannot find there.
The holy link is this:
You are welcome.
And actually, i am also a little kinder than you think (still not as great as God), so i’m making things even easier for you.
