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.

Yukiko took us through two whirlwind days around Tokyo. She was punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly! Just having her lead us through the public transportation nightmare that is the Tokyo transit system was worth every penny spent on a private guide. Thanks for an amazing trip!

“ A day in Kyoto with Yoshie ”

2 days ago Traveler: LUCIA -   Tour Guide: Yoshihisa

A day with Yoshie can help understanding what we just see as tourists. He is passionate about is job and I loved his sincere desire to share his knowledge with me. So... I do not only think that he is an excellent guide but I also think he deserves the best tousists, the ones who are deeply interested in Kyoto and love also less visited temples and shrines. Grazie mille Yoshie!
