Our very own Snakku blog tries to provide some really neat information, but there’s only so much we can cover. And we know that there are a lot of other sites that provide great information about Japan. Here is our pick of the top 10 sites about traveling in Japan and Japanese culture:
Japanista:Your guide to visiting and experiencing Japan!
Japanista is a great all-around site for everything Japan. They have travel guides, Japanese culture info, local event info, and general news about what’s happening in Japan.
Here's a couple of their most recent articles:

Another beautiful site with nice travel guides. But Taiken also offers a glimpse of what Japanese people are talking about and what’s happening in Japan.
Definitely the most comprehensive Japan travel guide site. They have so many guides that if printed back-to-back, it would be longer than the Encyclopedia Britannica. A must visit site for anyone remotely interested in Japan.
