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.

Such a lovely experience with dear Kimiko. She showed up early every day and stayed with me through everything my heart had desired to see and experience. She did much homework on her own after listening to my general wishes for this Japanese experience. I recommend her highly and again want to thank her for making my Tokyo experience MAGICAL. ANNE

Nobu is an amazing guide who knows how to navigate the ways. We went around Tokyo City for a day and another one was spent at Sendai. He knew of the places and history, so we were made aware of the stories behind a particular building/area etc. We had a 4 year old active child and must compliment that Nobu was very patient with her. Thank you for all your help, Nobu!

Richard was awesome! Richard showed us all around Kyoto and after being on a guided tour with him, my kids and myself wished we planned more time in Kyoto to explore more.
