Japan: Single Friendly Vacations


  • Sake tasting is a great way for solo travelers to make friends on the road

Why is Japan a good single friendly destination?

A Japan vacation one of the top picks for solo travel in Asia. Japan may be relatively small  compared to some of its neighbours but it is also one of the world's most densely populated countries. This means that single travellers will have no problem making new friends.  

The Japanese are famously polite and this makes them very accommodating to foreigners travelling on their own. There are many  accommodation options, such as pod hotels, that cater specifically to solo travellers. Hungry? Restaurants such as sushi and ramen bars are often made to accommodate single patrons.

What kind of activities can you do on your own in Japan?

You’ll find no lack of activities to do on your own within the cities, from visiting popular temples and landmarks, to getting lost in bustling side streets or malls. Japan also offers a lot of contemplative, quiet time for those solo travelers looking to recharge. In centres such as Kyoto, you can explore Zen gardens or follow a trail alongside a stream into the forest. If you find yourself at a bar or club, you may end up meeting new friends as locals can grow fairly sociable on nights out.
