The transport system in Japan is a bit complicated as there are numbers of platforms, stations, lines and lines. One can check through different apps which will help in getting the information about the routes and available transport. 

  • Carry cash while travelling to Japan

Japan is much of a cash society and one should carry cash while planning Japan vacations. People prefer cash in Japan rather than paying through the card. They usually do not accept credit cards there and also, the automatic teller machines do not accept foreign debit or credit cards. 

  • Japan Rail (JR) Pass

One should know that JR pass is not valid for every subway trains, some buses and Nozomi Shinkansen. One should see in advance that which buses and trains are covered under JR Pass. To travel through the subway, one should buy an IC card that can be Suica or Pasmo card. One can search for other options as well by investigating in advance.

  • No free Wi-Fi

Japan is a technology-leading country. Despite this fact, it is hard to find free Wi-Fi everywhere. If one wants to use internet everywhere around then, he should either buy a sim or rent a pocket Wi-Fi.

  • Tax- free shops

If one wants to spend less on shopping then one can shop at tax-free shops. The tax-free shops do not charge consumption tax. One can show the passport to avail such offer.

  • Emergency Phone Numbers

After landing in Japan, the first thing one should do is to save emergency numbers. The emergency numbers such as Police 110, Ambulance/ Fire 119, and other helpline numbers as well.

Other than these necessary points one should also have basic Japanese teaching kit to interact with local people in case they do not know English. One thing is just travelling and other is travelling smartly which means knowing about the key points about the place in advance.
