The latest from me

What makes building a dream itinerary such a challenge?

You started with a simple idea - a dream of seeing all the incredible sights Japan has to offer. To experience that trip of a lifetime.

But then you started researching that idea.

And slowly, day by day, week by week, what you thought would be a fun and exciting exercise actually turned into a frustrating chore.  One that turned up more questions than answers the more time you spent on it.

How the heck did that happen!?

Why people love The Real Japan...

Finding your site has been a delight!

Finding your site has been a delight. It's full of great insight and information (presented in simple, clear and smart fashion) that I'm sure will help to make my journey easier and much more rewarding than if I were to try and plan it on my own.
Thank you, Rob,  for your wonderful work and service to the wandering community!

Insanely effective

Before using The Real Japan I spent hours upon hours scouring the web trying to decide what I wanted to do with my time in Japan. There were so many options that I was locked in a state of decision paralysis.

Rob helped me narrow down my goals and he put together a comprehensive guide to accomplish everything that I wanted to in Japan as well as providing advice and resources on how to go about my trip.

Without Rob Dyer and The Real Japan I am sure that my trip would've been a jumbled unfocused mess, but because of the insanely effective help of Rob, I am certain that this will be the best trip of my life.

Excellent advice and guidance

I needed advice regarding travelling around Japan and the various options available over my self planned 3 1/2 week trip.

Rob gave me excellent advice and guidance around the best ways to use my JR pass, suica card and costs for additional day trips I want to do.

I feel much more organised and confident about my upcoming trip.

I also used the Facebook Group for advice of things to do whilst in Fukuoka which was great!
