Ads Everywhere in Japan

Ads Everywhere in Japan

 

If there is one thing noticeable in Japan, it is that it's covered up in advertisements, most especially print ads. Seeing ads inside trains, buses, and malls are nothing special. But seeing the huge amount of print advertisements in these places is what made it extra-ordinary.

 

But wait! If you thought these ads are just found in buses and trains, then you are wrong. Taxis also have huge boards inside them that more or less advertise a certain thing. Billboards, elevators, escalators, a flight of stairs, rental bicycles, vending machines, give-away pocket tissue papers, pavements, subways... name it, it has an ad on it.

You will also encounter an area particularly in subways where magazines and other reading materials are free for grabs. We call this "free papers" and they are available mostly in public places such as train stations.

1 day ago Traveler: Dan -   Tour Guide: Tomoko

I jjust wanted to give my feedback on Tomoko and the bus and driver. Most tour guides just dispense information in a monotone and no more as that is their job. It was so refreshing to have a guide that was so knowledgeable, yet spent the time to connect with every person in the group. She tried to make everyone comfortable and cared to personally make sure everyone was accounted for. You could...

Eric was a fantastic guide. Being from the city, he was both knowledgeable about the sites in Kyoto and extremely kind as well. He helped us schedule our day and provided us with recommendations for restaurants and other activities for the rest of our time in Kyoto.
