👋 Konnichiwa! My name is Trisha and I’ve traveled Japan solo several times. I mostly come to Japan because of food but I am also continuously learning about the Japanese culture in my visits. Majority of my trips to Japan were motivated by local cultures. I’ve stayed with local families in Japan through Couchsurfing and I also volunteered here to stretch my finances further.

In this Japan blog, you will find everything you need about traveling Japan, particularly in the areas of Osaka and Tokyo.
