5 of the Best Reasons to Go to Japan for Your Next Solo Trip

If you love solo travel and you’re already planning your next trip, you might want to hit Japan as your next stop on the road. Here’s why it’s one of the best solo female travel destinations out there:

The people

Lost and can’t seem to find your way through the maze of Kyoto’s alleys? Japanese people are incredibly helpful and will go out of their way to help you, says the Huffington Post—from guiding you straight to the station to giving you a map so you won’t lose your way next time. They’re one of the best reasons to go to the land of the rising sun.

The trains

Want to cover as much ground as possible during your stay? Japan’s trains are great and will get you to anywhere you want, from Hokkaido to Kanazawa, Tokyo to Kyoto or Osaka to Hiroshima. It hits all the major spots on your list so you can see and experience as much of the country as you want, from mountain towns full of sakura trees in full bloom to busy shopping shotengais and more.

The efficiency

Japanese are known for their efficiency and you could see that everywhere. Announcements will go on the platform screen if the train is 4 minutes late. Service staff will profusely apologize when you wait for 2 minutes for your takeout. It’s one of the reasons why Japan often tops the list of solo female travel destinations.

The politeness

All that bowing can really grow on you. People you don’t know will greet you ‘Ohayou’ and bow to you when you pass them in the corridors or streets. The level of politeness you experience in everyday interactions is astounding.

The nature

Japanese have a talent for reshaping nature. Take a stroll in the gardens of Kyoto or book a ticket and visit Sapporo during the snow festival. With a hot bowl of ramen noodles and beer, you’re all set for a wonderful time on your solo trip.
