Hi, my name’s Matt (マット in Japanese!). I have traveled to Japan on countless occasions, but I’m originally from England. I made this site to share lots of useful information about Japan. Having lived and traveled all over the country with not much money in my pocket, I know the best tricks. Writing about Japan is my passion. Be sure to follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads for my latest finds!


To be the ultimate destination for budget travel in Japan. I want budget travellers from across the world to use my books and blog, so they can have a chance to enjoy this amazing country on the cheap. Super Cheap Japan will focus on getting the most out of this wonderful country, whether you are a backpacker, budget traveler, worker or student.

Super Cheap Japan has been featured on….
