What can I expect from Japan?
Japan is one of those places I could just re-visit over and over again. With a long history, vibrant culture and so much great food, it’s not hard to see why Japan is an amazing travel destination.
Japan consists of four main islands: Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu (from north to south); Honshu is the largest and referred to as the Japanese mainland. However, in total, the Japanese archipelago counts an impressive 6,852 islands.

TRAVEL INSURANCE FOR JAPAN
I’m always surprised how many people travel without travel insurance. For me, it’s as essential to travel as buying a plane ticket, backpack or accommodation, and I never go without it.
Although China is relatively safe, unexpected natural disasters can always happen and I’ve witnessed people getting laptops and phones pickpocketed first hand.
Adequate insurance not only provides you with medical coverage (if you get sick or break your leg), but also covers things like your camera full of epic shots getting damaged or stolen, your flights getting cancelled, or you getting caught up in a natural disaster.
In short, it’s an insurance against potential issues that arise when you’re traveling and can save your life (or at the very least, a lifetime of debt).
