About Whitedoves.me

Welcome to whitedoves.me, your ultimate resource for insider Japan travel tips!

Our blog was founded in 2020 by John Suzuki, a Tokyo resident with a passion for helping foreigners experience Japan like a local. After spending years exploring the country and guiding friends on their visits, John realized there was a need for practical, first-hand advice about travel in Japan.

Thus, whitedoves.me was born to provide:

  • Detailed guides to Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and more top destinations
  • Sample Japan itineraries and planning resources
  • Transportation, lodging, food, and budget tips
  • Etiquette and cultural guides
  • Recommendations for must-see attractions and off-the-beaten-path gems
  • Advice on experiencing authentic Japanese culture and cuisine

With articles written by locals, Japanophiles, and seasoned travelers, whitedoves.me is a passion project aimed at helping you plan your perfect trip. We handle all the little details so you can focus on creating life-long memories.

Whether you’re preparing for two days in Tokyo or two weeks across Honshu, you’ll find our Japan travel tips comprehensive, practical and easy to follow. Give us a read before your next visit to Japan and unlock the country like never before!
