New Book From Super Cheap Japan Shows How Japan Can Be Visited On Next To No Money

Japan has a reputation as an expensive holiday destination, but finally there is a book to show the secrets to budget travel in the land of the rising sun

Super Cheap Japan, the leading budget travel website for Japan, has finally published its brand new book. The number of people visiting Japan is skyrocketing, but as tourists worry about their wallet, this book will become an essential purchase.

Many people are under the impression that Japan is too expensive for them. While the web is full of general hints and tips, there is no real travel book for budget travelers to Japan. This book was written to show exactly where, when and how to travel in Japan on a tight budget. With extensive tax-free shopping, crazily discounted train passes and an unbelievable exchange rate, there has never been a better time to visit. Go shopping for $4 clothes in Tokyo, enjoy a meal for a few bucks, or get a hotel room for under $10; all with this helpful guide.

Super Cheap Japan: Budget Travel in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Hiroshima and Surrounding Areas is available as a 180 page perfect-bound, full-color paperback and in ebook form. It is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other well-known book retailers. More information and samples can be found here.
