It's Easy to Get Around
Japan is a small but densely populated country — so there is a lot to see. But its size also means that once you're there, you can easily move from city to city by bullet train or locally by a subway or a bus.
I would lie if I said getting around Japan was always a breeze, but since it's safe, it was never anything I was worried about. Only a couple of times did I find myself approaching a stranger with the Japanese word "sumimasen" (excuse me) while frantically pointing at my map, and I was always successful at finding somebody to help me with directions or even happily escort me to the right location. I found it was almost impossible to get truly lost in a country as hospitable and small as Japan.
