Destination Diary: Japan


Our Destination Diary series provides a great overview of a place that we’ve been, or in this place, lived!

Heather and I had the great fortune to be able to live in Japan for 2 years as we taught English, and started Extra Pack of Peanuts!

In those two years, we visiting many different parts of the country and learned quite a bit about how to travel around cheaply. Today we share those tips with you, along with a great list of where to stay, what to do, and what you should (and maybe shouldn’t) eat while you’re in Japan!
