The top 5 tips and advice for traveling to Japan are featured in the content below. Although it seems very simple, people can forget it somehow. I hope this serves as a little reminder for you.

1. Time difference
Japan's time zone as if set to GMT is +9 hours. So it is 1 hour faster than most Asian countries.

2. Language
Japanese continues to be the primary language widely used in Japan's public, private, and government agencies. Many people of the younger generation speak English, but they do it in Japanese by mixing English terms with a very strong Japanese pronunciation flavor, so it is very strange or sounds funny when you hear this for the first time. Don't worry, the helpers or workers in tourist places, hotels and restaurants are well trained with skill and fluency in English. If the worst comes to the worst, you can still use your pencil and paper to draw some pictures or directions on the map that you want to go to.

3. Power supply and plug
Japan is using 100 volts, with two straight thin flat pins, it is different from some Asian countries and also European countries. Digital devices must withstand 100 volts - 240 volts, just to make sure you need to cross-check your digital travel gear. It should also be equipped with a universal power plug just in case.

4. Tap water
While Japan's tap water is drinkable, only recent years of heavy pollution, in some places the tap water is no longer drinkable, so before drinking tap water, be it from a hotel or public places , you need to make sure there is a sign that says so. is it directly drinkable or not.

5. Climate
Japan has four seasons, each of the seasons really varies a lot in terms of temperature and rainfall level. It will affect you a lot if you don't pay close attention to this and plan your trip bluntly. The spring season is from March to May, the average temperature is 14.5 degrees Celsius, normal rainfall level. It is good to have an umbrella on your trip. The summer season is from June to August, the average temperature is 27.7 degrees Celsius, most of the heavy rains fall during this season, you need to bring a long umbrella. The fall season is from September to November, the average temperature is 18.8 degrees Celsius, there is not much rain in this season, but the temperature is very different during the day and at night, it is necessary to prepare a jacket. The winter season is from December to February, the average temperature is 7.6 degrees Celsius, sometimes it snows in January, so it is necessary to prepare winter clothes. However, inside the building or public transport there will be heating, so the advice is to wear long-sleeved clothes and combine with a winter fabric jacket, so that you can take off your jacket and feel more comfortable inside.
