I was in Japan solo for two weeks and visited Tokyo, and Kamakura (the Great Buddha is definitely more impressive than the largest one in Nara). I also made a brief stop in Yokohama to see Chinatown, then went on to Nikko, Mount Fuji (a little trekking), Hakone, and the wonderful Kyoto. In between, half a day in Nara and an evening in Osaka. I felt very safe.Posted: September 29, 2023
I traveled solo to Japan and it was my first international solo destination. I fell in love with the country and the people. It is by far the safest and the most beautiful country I have ever seen. The people are extremely warm and even though they do not know English, they are always ready to help you.Posted: September 27, 2023
I visited Japan solo for 10 days and it was great. People are so friendly, easy to get around, and extremely safe. It was a birthday last minute decision and it was such a great trip. I flew into Tokyo, then took the train to Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, back to Tokyo then went to Kamakura.Posted: September 27, 2023
Great getaway with really nice people. Lots to do. The food and culture was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone looking to go abroad. it is a mix between old and new with culture and technology intertwinedPosted: August 10, 2023Experienced: July, 2019
I had a JR pass when I went to Japan and had the freedom to explore the country. The transportation system is very efficient. Google Maps works everywhere. I had no issue navigating. Japanese people are the nicest people and are always happy to help. Tokyo is incredible at night. I traveled solo and didn’t join any group tours during my time in Japan.Posted: June 22, 2023
Japan is amazing for solo travel. The people are amazing. They are so kind and so welcoming, and even though fluent English isn't common, especially outside of the major cities, the people will do their best to communicate with you. I always feel safe while traveling here - I feel safer walking the streets alone at 3 in the morning than I do walking the streets in my own hometown. Plus the country itself is so beautiful and has something for everyone. I cannot recommend traveling to Japan enough.Posted: May 19, 2023
I have travelled solo to Japan and I had a great time. The country is beautiful and safe. The public transportation system there is outstanding, extensive, and efficient. The English-speaking tourist offices in cities, usually in train stations, are very helpful.Posted: May 1, 2023
I felt Japan was very safe. It is actually one of the places I've traveled solo where I never felt unsafe, not for a moment. My biggest concern was the language barrier, but overall people are very polite and nice when you ask them questions.Posted: April 30, 2023
I went snowboarding in Hokkaido in January. It was wonderful, good food, great venue, good snow, nice people.Posted: April 2, 2023
Japan is very safe. Lived there for 2 years, and walked and rode trains everywhere. In Okinawa, for one year, I drove, hiked, and swam all over the island, mostly alone. No hassles or issues from anyone.Posted: March 30, 2023
