Welcome to /r/JapanTravel! This subreddit is for any and all looking to visit Japan, including those who have already been.
Accounts less than a day old are blocked to reduce spamming
The Common Sense rule: Obviously this sub is for talking about topics related to traveling in Japan. Non-travel related Japan posts belong in the appropriate related subs below and will be removed from here.
Clickbait, spam, memes, ads, brochures, surveys, vlogs and videos, personal blog links or other forms of self-promotion (ESPECIALLY GOFUNDME CAMPAIGNS) will be removed and users will be banned. If you want to do promote yourself, go buy ad space on Reddit.
No politics and keep it civil. While this subreddit is not a "hug box," users are kindly asked to treat each other with respect.
All posts and comments are subject to reddiquette guidelines. Posts and comments containing racist, sexist and other forms of discriminatory language will be removed. Please try to keep things PG-13. There are many resources online regarding sexual services and products available in Japan — we're just not one of them.
50% of posts here can be answered by looking through this sub's resources or by searching past posts. Have you checked our General Advice page yet? Did you thoroughly read the FAQ? Did you check the resource page? Have you explored Japan Guide?
Include a descriptive title. One or two word titles rarely provide enough information. Include the destination.
Include context if submitting an image or gallery. See Rule 10. No selfies. We're not your Facebook or Instagram. Vlogs and personal videos will be removed, no exceptions.
Be as specific as possible, including: where you're starting, dates of travel, budget, interests, places you've been, things you like and dislike. This can make a significant impact to suggestions, availability, etc. the community can provide to you.
Check Google and Japan Guide before posting. Seriously. Try searching Google first. Any posts requesting information that could be easily researched will be removed.
Present the research you've already done so we don't feel like we're doing everything for you; we are not your travel agents.
Stay around to answer questions or respond to comments. This applies to all questions, image, and posts.
Low-effort posts ("Tips for Tokyo?", "Where should I go?") will be removed without further notice.
Any and all meet-up requests for tourists or transient travelers in Japan should be posted in the Mega Meet-Up thread stickied on the sub's main page. A new thread is made each month, so please keep your meet-up posts limited to the thread that corresponds to the month you'll be visiting Japan.
Direct links to external sites (blogs/travel sites/certain image & video hosts etc.) will be flagged as spam. If you want to share something interesting from external sites, link it in a text post and provide comments to encourage discussion. Here is a good example of how to endorse/share external sites. Here is another from 2017. NOTE: Vlogs and personal videos are not permitted under this rule. Make a trip report instead.
