Some Japanese related sites that I visit

For Spring Break 2007 my family and I went to Japan. It was the first time I had been back to Japan since living there in the late 1980s. Before returning in 2007 I stumbled upon a number of websites, a few of which I still visit on a regular basis. These are all travel related for the most part. I’ll post some of the Japanese language related sites that I like another day. This is probably the best travel related site for Japan. It’s a bit “busy” with all of the ads, but if you can cut through them there is a wealth of content. Just about any question you have about traveling in Japan can be answered. And if you can’t find what you are looking for? Just ask in the Forum and you’ll get a good answer (or more than one good answer) within a few hours usually. Blue Lotus is the only blog I check out on a daily basis. She doesn’t update it everyday, but I still check in to see if she has. She is into food more than I am, but all of her thoughts aren’t about food. She has some wonderful takes on life in Japan, and can tell a story in a very enjoyable fashion. Some of her pictures are really well done too. This makes getting around Japan easy, fast, and cheap as you can always find the best train route for your needs in an instant. The quality of the questions and answers isn’t always that great, but occasionally there is something worthwhile here. I haven’t actually used Gaijinpot, but it may come in handy if I need work while in Japan.

That’s it for now. Post your favorite travel-related Japan links in the comments.
