I am Anne Sutherland-Smith, travel blogger and spreadsheet queen.  Pretraveller is a travel blog to help people travel with confidence and give them ideas and inspirations for travel.

We recently travelled to Japan for a family holiday and really loved the experience!  When I subsequently started writing articles about Japan for the Pretraveller blog I discovered that other travellers were looking for more information about travelling to Japan, and some of my articles became really popular.  I decided to continue to write more articles on the topic of Japan and have now decided to specialise in this topic – particularly to assist first time travellers to Japan, and also anyone who just wants to find out more about Japan generally.

In the articles below the first section is where you should start – check out my articles on getting started to plan your trip to Japan with my articles about the best time to visit, itineraries and also package tour options.  The second section is all about how to book the tickets and tours you need for your trip.  The final section is all about your pre-departure phase, and making sure you are ready to go.  In the short term I also plan to add more articles to help people find the right accommodation for their Japan trip.

I have also set up the Japan Travel Planning Facebook Group – it is a great resource to enable you to ask questions about your upcoming trip to Japan.  Please join us to help you prepare for your trip, whether you are thinking longer term or heading off next week!
