Advice for travellers

What to avoid

  • Remember to remove shoes when going into temples, restaurants and some shops.
  • Tipping isn’t expected and can cause embarrassment.
  • Avoid splashing and making a noise in an onsen. And don’t be afraid to put the small towel/flannel on your head when you’re not using it. Everyone else does.
  • Keep your wits about you in the main stations. There are few, if any signs in English, and what seem like hundreds of platforms. Go with someone who knows what they are doing.
