Japan is an interesting country. While Tokyo is lightyears ahead of the rest of the world, smaller villages hold traditions thousands of years old. There's no better way to learn about the history and authenticity of Japan than doing a home swap. Immerse yourself in a more minimalist way of life with a slower pace, and a lot of technology, and locals ready to show you the ways of their culture.
Japan is one of the most modernized and advanced countries in Asia, making it a superb destination to work remotely. Larger cities such as Tokyo, are full of cafes and co-working hubs, and tourism is a major aspect, so networking is simple and easy. The country has reliable internet and advanced technology, making it easy to advance your online career as well as enjoy an easy way of life.
Japan is like nowhere else on the planet, and retains centuries of traditions and cultures still alive and well today. From the gorgeous natural scenery to exciting cities and quiet villages, Japan is somewhere everyone should visit at least once. Some of the most popular locations in Japan are the advanced industrialized city of Tokyo, traditional villages and cherry blossoms in Kyoto, the Japan Alps village of Takayama, the towering Mount Fuji, and the temple town and UNESCO site of Nikko.
