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.

Kahoko picked me up at my hotel and this was extremely helpful because I had limited experience using Tokyo public transit.

Kahoko shared cultural information with me about the difference between a temple and a shrine; she also shared helpful information about the history of Shintoism and Buddhism and how they ...

My husband and I wanted to see as much as possible of both touristy Tokyo and regular neighborhoods. Akira helped us navigate the metro and packed in more sights than we could have ever found on our own. He explained the history of each area. We really enjoyed an authentic meal in a cozy restaurant unlike any we had seen before. We highly recommend Akira for other first time visitors. We trust him...
