Here's what others are saying about The Real Japan...
Your. Guide. Is. Awesome!!! I love Japan. I love its language and its culture and its people. Your guide really brings us to the core of the real Japan, the one below the surface, the one where true encounters with people and culture are possible. This is definitely how I want to travel to Japan. Thank you for bringing all these great ideas to us.
Just got the Guide 🙂
Thank you!! Such great ideas!!
Next time I'm sure to include some!!
I can't believe the good value of this hotel!
I've bookmarked this hotel and will definitely consider it for my next trip... many thanks to The Real Japan for the tip-off!
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.
The Real Japan goes beyond the major sites.
It is a super, super, super way to get the inside scoop on traveling in Japan.

Meet Your Host
My name is Rob Dyer and I have been exploring Japan since 2000, and yet I still feel like I have only seen the tip of the iceberg of this amazing country.
Think of me as your virtual Japan travel buddy.
Here and in my Japan Travel Bulletin you’ll find me sharing information, tips and resources all about travelling across Japan – hopefully inspiring you explore more of Japan, away from the crowds.
My wife is Japanese and we were married in a Shinto ceremony in Japan. We now split our time between Japan and England – my home country.
I started The Real Japan to share my passion for travelling in Japan. The hidden Japan. The Japan beyond the hype, beyond the clichés. The Real Japan.
