Practical Tips for Traveling in Japan

Japan is a fun place to visit, but also a unique country with its own rules, systems, language, and culture.

Especially for first-time visitors, the train systems (Suica, Japan Rail pass, how to book etc), Hotels (Ryokans, Onsen etiquette), Restaurants (manners such as otooshi, dietary requirements), ATMs, road laws (renting a car) can be difficult to navigate.

Here’s where you come in!

We are looking for experienced writers currently living in Japan to write ‘how-to articles” for us on a regular basis. 

If you are interested please contact us using the form below.

We are looking for experienced writers (professional, and non-professional) who are able to write engaging, easy to understand articles.

About half of our audience has English as their second language so we are looking for easy to understand articles.

Payment will be based on the length of the article (not including the bio):

400-600 words ¥2,800
601-1,000 words ¥5,200
1,000+ words ¥7,800

*Including 3 good quality copyright-free photos and 2 links within the text to other pages inside www.nearbytokyo.com
