5 things tourists do is redundant when traveling to Japan
According to Gaijinpot, after a few years living in Japan, Alex Sturmey (British) has learned many things you should not do when traveling to Japan:
Buy train tickets too soon
Japanese Shinkansen high-speed trains enter the station exactly every second and keep new connections. Therefore, you do not need to book train tickets too early as in other countries.
Please choose a random Saturday to catch a train from Tokyo Station to Kyoto. It only takes 10 minutes to wait for the train and 2 hours 18 minutes to travel
A shinkansen is more like a bus than an airplane, and you will have the chance to witness its bullet-like speed.

Shiteiseki (reserved seats) can also be booked for a small fee, but that also means you have to get on the same train.
A more flexible way is to buy jiyuseki (non-reserved seats). These seats usually take up 3-4 compartments of bullet trains, so your chances of being seated will be high. Except for the holidays, you can comfortably and quickly board the train to Japanese attractions without making a reservation.
Fully packed personal toiletries
Most visitors often bring toiletries but this is not necessary if traveling to Japan. Most inns, hotels or ryokans (traditional Japanese inns) will give you all you need most: shampoo, bath soap, disposable towels and razors, even both pajamas and slippers.
In public toilets in Japan, there are always enough toilet paper and soap. Many places also offer free hand towels
Not only that, even the public baths in the city center are fully equipped. Toilets almost always have enough paper, hand soap and vending machines for visitors to buy chewing gum or condoms. You will meet with staff who deliver small packages in case you run into a paperless toilet. Convenience stores also sell a complete set of toiletries that include everything from contact lenses to toothbrushes to underwear.
Trust in public Wi-Fi
Every time I travel abroad, the most terrifying thing is probably not being able to access the Internet. You may think that with Japanese brand technology platform, public Wi-Fi in this country will surely be extremely convenient? No problem. Even if you find a free connection point, it will take you an hour to get through the service login rounds in case you know Japanese. Better yet, visitors should buy a portable Wi-Fi transmitter or a mobile sim to access the network.
The set up is simple and the price is just right.
Waiting for the waiter at the restaurant
Many diners often keep the habit of sitting at the table and waiting for the waitress to come and welcome. That habit needs to change in Japan if you don't want to go hungry.
In most cafes or restaurants, guests will attract the attention of the owner or waiter by raising their hands and saying "Sumimasen" (Sorry or Please). Most waiters will wait for you to do this, as they will never want to disturb the guest room when they have an important conversation.

In an izakaya (Japanese pub), you'll often sit somewhere in the middle of a winding maze of wooden rooms with sliding doors and shoes piled up everywhere.
Once there, you just need to press the magical "pin pon" button on the table to call the waiter. Without this button and you wouldn't be able to call out loud groups of customers from the next table, good luck will come to you.
Carry a giant suitcase everywhere
Japan has an indispensable service for travelers who love to carry a lot of things - "Travel without luggage". This service not only frees you from crap from departure until you land, but also takes them all the way to your hotel. Not only secure with personalized support, the service also has an easy-to-understand website for a reasonable price. For example, to send a large 25 kg suitcase from Narita Airport (Tokyo) to a hotel in Hokkaido (more than 1,100 km apart), the price is 3,240 yen (680,000 VND).
