4. Saved by technology

The low-cost carrier or cheap flights are very helpful for Indonesian tourists who want to go to Japan. During a travel fair, you can get a much cheaper price for the round-trip tickets to Japan; it can be only around Rp3-4 million. Moreover, with various online applications to find cheap accommodation, tourists can save a lot. If you want to travel to Japan, the key is in the planning. You can get cheaper tickets or places to stay by searching it online way before the D-day, so you can say goodbye to the impression that Japan is an overpriced country to travel.

No wonder that nowadays, based on the data of Japan Embassy in Indonesia, the individual tourist or backpacker style is more dominant.
