How to explore Japan on your own?
Rent a camper car!
Find out how a rental camping car will make your travel unforgettable too
“traveling through Japan by yourself (with 2 young children) is so hard, you will not even enjoy it much. Nobody speaks any English, you can’t read a thing and to top it all of, it is just so very expensive!”
Sure it is a good idea?
Yep, that is what we heard over and again when talking about our plan ‘to explore Japan without a guide, independently and without booking everything in advance.’ The way an adventure is supposed to be. In my opinion anyway.
And that is exactly what you will hear, too
So we did it anyway
And yes, it was a nightmare at times, and as enduring maybe as running a marathon. But you know what? These headaches were mostly while preparing, while organising. Not noticeably more during the actual trip, I mean not more than anywhere else we have traveled. Even though we could not speak any Japanese and the price level is high.
Because we figured out a solution; to rent a camper. Driving our own rental camper would be fun and different from all tour packages and tourists out there, AND make the perfect solution to all problems like communication and high costs at the same time.
And it was! This 4-week-ride turned out one of the greatest travel experiences we had, anywhere. So I want share how you can do that too. Without all our headaches of course!
