If you have a visa from the USA you can buy cheap tickets for up to less than 3000 reais compared to other airlines that do not need a visa to make stops. If you do not have a US visa, we recommend Emirates or AirFrance.

Where to find cheap accommodation in Japan?

The fact that Japan is a small and crowded country makes us think that accommodation in Japan is something absurd. The reality is that you can find hotels as cheap as in Brazil. With 1000 reais you can stay more than 12 days in a shared room that from 10 to 0 in more expensive hotels in Brazil. I paid about 1300 in Akihabara in downtown Tokyo in a very chic Hostel for 15 days.

Traveling to Japan without knowing the language

Some believe that the biggest barrier to visiting Japan is language. Fortunately Japan is one of the easiest countries to get around without needing to know anything about the language. Everything is so well signposted and made to make our lives easier without the need for contact with natives. You can easily manage with gestures as the Japanese are usually very receptive.

Knowing English is not going to help much on your trip, since most Japanese don't know or suck at English. Many words in the Japanese language also resemble words in English and Portuguese, which makes it easier to understand many things. The articles below can help in these aspects:
