HOSTELS IN JAPAN

THE BEST HOSTELS IN JAPAN ON EVERY PREFECTURE

Japan is every traveler’s dream destination, however let’s get real: it is also one of the most costly countries in the world to travel to. When I went to visit Tokyo and Yokohama, I was surprised with the cost of going around via train and the cost of food. Given this, the rise of cheap accommodation such as hostels was able to make any Japan trip a little cheaper. Hence, the rise of the best hostels in Japan.

But before anything else, please check these articles I have written so far about Japan:

Also, please check out this simple vlog featuring scenes from Tokyo and Yokohama, featuring my ever-so-favorite anime OST song, Sweet Soul Revue by th Pizzicato Five:

So, without any further ado, here are the best hostels all over Japan on every prefecture:
