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.

22 minutes ago Traveler: Stephanie -   Tour Guide: Eiko

My family just spent two days being guided through Tokyo by Eiko. She was by far the best tour guide we could have chosen. Even through our messaging prior to coming to Tokyo Eiko was always interested in what we wanted to see and to do in putting our itinerary together. As soon as I messaged her, she would immediately respond back. When we arrived in Tokyo, she had put together an itinerary that ...

Young and old we all are amaze with magic - how did he ever do that - often thats the question we silently asked in our minds? Magic brings that innocent exitement and happiness within us. From one inquiry to the other, prompt replies, unexpected updates, showing up to the airport even if we didn't asked him to (just to make sure we will arrive to our hotel safe and sound) and so on . . . ...

It was great to experience sushi making with Tetsuro. He informed us in advance that the fish market is closed on the day we could follow his lesson, and he took us to some shops with professional cooking equipment instead. This was also very interesting. Thank you, Tetsuro !

From a roster of guides on Triple Lights, we chose Toshi because he had his college education in the U.S. and worked as a media coordinator which hopefully will ensure a well-organized tour. We were not disappointed. Toshi had good command of bo...

We were a group of 4 girls traveling from the US and none of us had visited Japan before. Yuki spoke great English, helped us get our subway passes and JR pass and was a great tour guide for the day. He was also very flexible and took us to see a garden we had not originally planned. We enjoyed our day with Yuki and highly recommend him!

18 hours ago Traveler: Nina -   Tour Guide: Keiko

I spent a wonderful day with Keiko seeing both old and new parts of Tokyo. She was a very thoughtful guide and arranged for memorable experiences such as tea in the park and excellent sushi at Tsukiji Market. We took a boat ride to Odeiba and walked along the river. We were also able to experience an annual festival in Asakusa. I would not have been able to find my way through the crowds and enjoy...
