I’m sure most of you interested in Japan, especially those who plan to or have visited, know Tokyo Cheapo‘s Blog and have rummaged through their website.
Japan is known as one of the most expensive countries, with Tokyo being one of the most expensive towns, and it can be daunting to think about all the money you are going to spend there next to the already not really cheap flight. I know I thought about it when I first wanted to visit Japan (being a broke student and all) and was glad to get some tips from fellow students and friends who had already been there and could recommend places to stay etc..
That why I was delighted when I first stumbled over the Tokyo Cheapo Blog and add to my “must try” list while reading the newest posts. I like their writing style that mostly feels as if your buddies were telling you about the newest hype you immediately want to try.
Now they are promoting their short-guide “A Cheapo’s Guide to Akihabara” and you can get it for free until tomorrow on Amazon! I already have my copy and I think it’s very well done and informative. A lot more to discover in Akihabara than I have till now and I’m looking forward to my next trip to Akihabara.
