Japanese Travel Hacks by Kim Dao

When you travel to Japan there are some vital travel hacks that will make your stay more enjoyable. Blogger Kim Dao goes over a few of these hacks in a list of ten hacks that she compiled. Kim Dao explains how Odigo travel works(https://www.odigo.jp/profile/kimdao). This website has been completely revamped and allows tourists to plan their trip. It gives suggestions on where you can go and how to get around for your scheduled stay days. You can also book your entire trip, flights, accommodations, activities, tours and car rentals on this one website. Odigo is trying to be community based and you can share your experiences and provide tips and get paid for your input. Kim Dao explains some awesome train apps that tourists can use in japan. There are many apps available in English. The apps will tell you what train to take and what transfers you will have to take. Japan is known for utilizing trains as their main source of transportation. Google maps is also very helpful in getting tourists around and explaining which trains to take. While using trains, get a train card. Getting a train card means you don’t need a ticket. There are several train companies in Tokyo. Making transfers can be difficult when needing specific tickets, the train card allows for commuters to transfer from one train to another without worrying about different train line tickets. Train cards can be purchased in advance at the airport and if you don’t utilize all the money loaded on it you can get the difference refunded prior to leaving Japan.
