Yes, you can travel to Tokyo on a budget. We'll show you how to do it and which apps to use. It's actually pretty easy.
Tokyo is truly a magical place. Bringing together two millennia of tradition and the wonders of a space-age metropolis, Japan's capital is a genuine tourist hotspot. Unfortunately, this also makes it rather expensive. There is, however, no need to despair. You can still visit and enjoy it on a tight budget. The ways to save are many. First and foremost, you don't really need a travel guide. In fact, you can manage quite well on your own. An app like KKDay will allow you to explore the world on your own terms - for free.
Next comes getting from A to B. Cabs are a cool way to do it, but there are much cheaper ways to go about it. Public transportation in Japan tends to be absolutely amazing, with fast and reliable lines to every country's nook. Catching a bus or a train is easy - not to mention affordable. It could be a perfect start to your adventure. Believe it or not, they are also always on time, which will be a cultural shock to just about anyone. Relax and enjoy the ride. You never know what you can discover in a city as vast and as rich as Tokyo.
Moreover, there's one more piece of the puzzle you ought to consider. Food is, after all, something that every adventurer and globetrotter needs. What better way to enjoy life than to indulge in some truly delicious Japanese cuisine? If you've never tried it, you're in for a treat - especially in Tokyo. Some restaurants will require reservations, while others will be rather welcoming to anyone passing by. If you commit to a bit of research online, you should be able to find some genuinely affordable spots that will still offer scrumptious meals.
