This is NOT a 'national subreddit', but rather a general-interest subreddit for Japan and some related topics. Very few of our subscribers are Japanese. As a general rule we remove posts asking for opinions about what Japanese people think about various subjects.


Use /r/japantravel for questions/posts related to your vacation or short-term stay, including travelblogs etc.

Link Submission Rules

  • Reposts & multiple threads on the same topic, especially current events, will be deleted.

  • Low-effort posts will be deleted. Repeat offenders will be banned. If you have a simple question, your first stop should be Google, not here.

  • In general, threads which should be posted in a more relevant subreddit (see list above) will be removed. This especially applies to travel photos/questions and language/translation questions.

  • Posts with no relation to Japan, posts not written in English, posts with vague/clickbait titles, spam (including affiliate links), and posts intended for personal gain (including crowdfunding links) will also be removed.

  • Whenever possible, a moderator or AutoMod will leave a comment in a deleted thread explaining why it has been removed. If you believe your post has been removed in error, contact the moderators.

  • Vlogs/travel videos/low-quality viral vids are not allowed. Try /r/japanvids, /r/jvlog, /r/moronarmy, /r/japantravel, or /r/videos.

  • Requests for candy, etc from Japan should go to /r/snackexchange

  • No shitposting/memes allowed (try /r/WTFJapan instead or /r/japancirclejerk if you dare)

The following rules apply to both links and comment submissions

  • No fear-/hate-mongering, harassment, shitposting, or soliciting/encouraging illegal activity. Repeat offenders may be banned.

  • Do not post personal information, whether it belongs to you or someone else.

  • Reddit automatically removes comments with URL shorteners ( etc), it's not us.
