SWS : Something Worth Sharing_Nippon Journey

SWS : Something Worth Sharing_Nippon Journey

There are few things i wish to share, things that I picked up throughout my journey in Japan which I find very useful and might be useful for you too.


  1. List of Halal Restaurant in Japan by District – https://muslim-japan.com/
  2. Instant Rice. I hate to admit it but I am not really adventurous when it come to food. Rice is my staple food and thanks to the invention of instant rice, I survived the whole trip without starving. The packed instant rice is widely available at all convenience store across Japan and you only need to reheat the rice in a microwave for 2-3 minutes and its ready to eat.

    Our all time favorite, instant rice with fried anchovies
  3. Food allergies. The hostel we stayed provided this small piece of paper which has been a very useful communication medium to inform the food seller what we cannot eat.

    A useful piece of sheet

Pocket Wifi

Can be booked and rented from any telecommunication/internet service provider at least a month before travelling and collect at their store upon arrival in Japan. Really convenient device to stay online. This is recommended by a friend http://www.globaladvancedcomm.com/pocketwifi.html.

If u rent a listing via Airbnb or any other private rentals, most of the owners will provide free pocket wifi to the guest – a hassle free arrangement.

That’s all that i can think of as for now, hope if could benefit you in any ways.
