The 5 best travel tips and tips in Japan are presented in the content below.
Even if it sounds very simple, but somehow, people could forget it. So I hope this serves as a reminder.
1. Time difference
Japan’s time zone, as if it was set to GMT, is +9 hours. Therefore, it is 1 hour faster than in most Asian countries.
Japanese remains the main language widely used in Japan by the public, private and government organizations. Many younger generations speak English but speak Japanese by mixing the English term with a strong taste of Japanese pronunciation. So it is very strange or sounds fun when you first hear it. Don’t worry, helpers or workers in tourist places. Hotels and restaurants are well trained with English skills and fluency. If the worst becomes worse, you can always use your pencil and paper to draw images or directions on the map you want to go.
3. Power supply and plug
Japan uses 100 volts, with two thin and straight flat pins. It is different from some Asian countries and also from European countries. Digital devices should support 100 volts – 240 volts, just to make sure you need to verify your digital travel equipment. You should also have a universal power outlet just in case.
4. tap water
While tap water in Japan is potable, only in recent years of high pollution, in some places tap water is no longer potable, so before drinking tap water at the hotel or in public places, make sure that there is a sign that indicates that it is directly portable or not.
Japan has four seasons, each of the seasons varies greatly in terms of temperature and rainfall. This will have a big impact if you have not paid much attention and plan your trip directly. The spring season is from March to May, the average temperature is 14.5 degrees Celsius, the normal level of rain. It’s nice to have an umbrella with you during your trip. The summer season is from June to August, the average temperature is 27.7 degrees Celsius, the most abundant rain falls during this season, you must bring along an umbrella.
The fall season is from September to November,
the average temperature is 18.8 degrees Celsius, it does not rain much this season, but the temperature varies a lot day and night, it is necessary to prepare a jacket. The winter season is from December to February, the average temperature is 7.6 degrees Celsius, the snow sometimes falls in January, so you must prepare winter clothes. However, inside the building or public transport, there will be heating, so the advice is to wear a long-sleeved garment and wear it with a winter cloth jacket, so you can take off the jacket and more comfortable inside.
