Those who have already visited Japan agree that it is a luxury destination. It is made for travelers who are not afraid of spending. And yet, a trip to Japan is the dream of many, especially Backpackers. Certainly, Japan is one of these expensive destinations … well, it seems! This does not mean, however, that this country is inaccessible for small budgets. It is quite possible to travel there on a limited budget. Here are some tips that you may find useful in limiting your travel budget to Japan. Traveling to Japan: 6 precious tips for small budgets


Traveling to Japan: 6 precious tips for small budgets:

Buying a plane ticket: finding a good plan online

Without doubt, the biggest expense of your travel budget is the purchase of the plane ticket. So this is the place to start if you want to save real money for your stay in Japan. Certainly, good deals are not as common as they used to be. However, there are still several ways to find a cheap plane ticket to Japan.

In general, the price offered by airlines varies according to the period and the day of departure. A mid-week trip is cheaper than a weekend. Early morning or late night flights are also known to be more affordable. If you want to find the best flight deal, you have to go to the web. There are many options available to you: flight comparators, good sites, etc. Whichever option you choose, you should not hesitate to take advantage of the competition



 

The ideal time to travel cheaper to Japan

As mentioned above, prices can vary from simple to double depending on the period in which you plan to leave. If your budget is limited, it is better to choose to leave outside tourist periods. Prices often tend to drop outside of school holidays: plane tickets, accommodation… If you can, take advantage of the off-peak period to go to Japan. You can organize your vacation from mid-March to April, August to September or November to December. These are the ideal times to travel to Japan on a limited budget.



 

Finding cheap accommodation in Japan: which is the best option?

In addition to the plane ticket, accommodation is also one of the most important items of travel. Japan is no exception. The choice of accommodation is not lacking in the land of the Rising Sun. The quality and price may vary from place to place. If you want to limit your travel budget, avoid staying in luxury hotels. Hostels are the best option for cheap accommodation in Japan. The price is around $ 14 to $ 30 a night depending on the comfort and services offered. Ryokan is also a cheaper option, but costs much more than hostels. However, the latter is particularly recommended if you want to live the Japanese way. For those traveling solo, Couchsurfing remains the best solution.

Good to know: If you are not traveling in high season, it is not necessary to make your accommodation reservation in advance. Many booking sites offer significant discounts the day before or the day of departure.



 

Eating cheap in Japan: is it possible?

If you don’t want to blow the bill, be careful with the food budget. It is possible to eat cheaper in Japan, provided you control your cravings. Like in any other destination, eating out can quickly add to your food budget. To avoid spending too much on food, the most economical solution is to go to the supermarket. Cooking makes eating cheaper and healthier. If you want to taste local specialties, choose street stalls or fast food restaurants that offer typical dishes at affordable prices, such as the Mos-Burger, the Yoshinoya…

Getting around without breaking the bank in Japan: which means of transport to favor?

The transport budget is also part of the main expense item of your trip to Japan. Price may vary depending on the mode of transport you choose. The best way to save on your transportation budget is to travel by hitchhiking. In Japan, it’s easier to hitchhike. Some travelers even swear by this mode of transportation. But, we are not going to lie, this option is not made for everyone.

Fortunately, there are several means of transportation to get around Japan. If you are not afraid of several hours of train a day and want to visit as many places as possible, the best solution is the JR Pass. This plan allows you to move from one city to another without limit. Be aware that you can also rent a bicycle to get around cheaper in Japan.
