Consider this the first bi-monthly website update. We have changed the design, and are still improving pages and small things here and there.
The Special Days section is almost entirely complete, with most official holiday, and several other important days in Japan. Once all the official holidays have been added, other important days such as White Day will be added little by little.
A Culture section with several Japanese cultural topics have also been created, together with a Help page containing Emergency Numbers and a Lost and Found page. More will be added later.
You can expect at least two blog posts per month concerning new updates on the website, always around the 15th and the 1st of each month.
See you for updates in February!
Hello and welcome to DiveIntoJapan!
Dive Into Japan is a place where you will find tons of information about Japan, from how to prepare for the voyage, to the most magnificent places to visit.
The way we will differentiate ourselves from other websites about Japan is that we do not intend to only write about popular locations, but also about lesser known, yet beautiful areas. There are literally thousands of obscure temples and shrines with no information in English, and many with very little information in Japanese. We believe that these interesting places with their own story and history deserve to be shared, and known not only by the locals, but by everyone who plans on traveling there.
Aside from information about festivals, shrines, temples, or gardens, we will also create pages and articles for people who want to study or work in Japan. We will strive to create the largest online database about Japan.
Enjoy your stay on DiveIntoJapan, as well as wherever you will go in Japan!
