My friends and I have started a travel group called DIY Travel Japan. We aim to share our DIY travel experiences in Japan to the world through blogging and vlogging.
Since I am co-contributing to the group, I’ll be sharing our content here in my blog as well.
If you have been following my blog, you know that I have been to Kyoto’s Daimonjiyama many times. Weekly, in fact.
This however is different because it shows group dynamics. Real people, real events, and real interactions with Japan.
For the complete details on how to DIY this trip, check out Conquering Kyoto’s Mountains.
Please watch in HD and don’t forget to like our Facebook Page and subscribe to our Youtube channel for more.:)
Thank you and enjoy!
Okay. The reason I’m super busy this week is because me and my friends are starting to build a community for travelers in Japan.
You might be saying: Oh, another one. But this one is different. Why?
With visa restrictions all over the world getting more relaxed (especially in Japan for the past 5 years) and air travel becoming more affordable, traveling has now become accessible to a wider audience.
Consequently, people have now become more independent when it comes to traveling. In the past 20-25 years, people used to rely on a lot of travel agencies to arrange tours. But now, the trend is doing it yourself. DIY traveling is now the trend. With all the information available online, this is so easy to do and much more rewarding.
The idea of online sharing has also been trending lately. To name a few: Beme and Snapchat have started real-time video-sharing, Uber went with ride-sharing, and Airbnb is massive in the apartment-sharing business.
Inspired by these, our group thought about a creating a platform where people can create and share past and future events with each other. This is also a place where people from all over the world who are looking for something fun to do in Japan. A real trip that is created by real people in the hopes of creating the best travel experience in Japan.
The website is coming soon! I’ll give you all the details about it.
But for now, connect with us on Facebook! Please share and invite your friends!
