Hello! I’m Javon, owner of onegreenbicycle.com. I travel between America and Japan every year and travel all around. Although I always make it to Tsutsujigaoka area of Tokyo to help out with a yearly VBS program for some children in the nearby community and their parents.
I love to stay in Airbnb’s when possible in Japan and I have always wanted to try to hozugawa river cruise in arashiyama and stay at the hoshinoya. I love scuba diving and trying new foods. My top tip for Japan newbies is register some free wifi apps ahead so you don’t have to pay for pocket wifi or sim and you won’t be stressed as well. Those free apps can be found here.
Nope, I do not like natto. But I try to keep trying it so I can develop a taste for it at some point. Last time when I was talking to a Japanese friend, they showed me a Japanese food display similar to the food pyramid in America. I was shocked to find out there was a whole section for fermented foods and another section completely for soybeans.
For the past 15 years I have been experiencing Japan. And I’m now excited to start putting together some resources to help out new travelers. All of my resources can be found at onegreenbicycle .com
I also just launched a JR Pass Giveaway and you can enter by helping share my resources or submitting some of your favorite photos in Japan. So if you’ll be traveling around soon definitely like our facebook page and enter for a JR Pass for this summer/fall.
