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.

I contacted some guides/companies but they either wouldn’t take a party of our size or didn’t understand what was required for 5 children aged 6-10. Two hours in a market?? Yukiko worked with me so that we had an excellent day, which was perfect for everyone. Thank you Yukiko.

Planning a trip is exhausting. Making sure everyone enjoys the trip, even more exhausting, if not impossible. I was fortunate to connect with Yukari through TripleLights, who gladly relieved me of that burden. We originally planned to visit Hiroshima and when our travel plans changed, I checked with TripleLights and Yukari's name came up, with excellent reviews and was fortunately available on ...
