What the Hell is Japanimal?

Japanimal is your honest and unofficial travel guide and survival guide for Japan.

What makes use so honest?

We’re not afraid to make it weird.

Other websites about Japan feature only the good, most sparkly clean aspects of the country; completely neglecting the bad and the weird. At Japanimal we show you the good, but we also show you the bad and weird.

Other websites are at the mercy of their advertisers or followers, or are created by the Japan National Tourism Office, so they have to be careful about what they say.
We don’t have any such vested interests. We can say anything we want. We just want to give you the full picture: The Awesome, The Bad and The Weird.

Japan is 30% weird anyway! So you’re really missing out!
