    Love the title! At first I was like this must be a typo or something is wrong with me, why is he saying I shouldn’t go to Japan. Great post. Japan is of course on everyone’s list, certainly mine for the very reasons you highlighted.

    Fabulous photography! Love the look of Japan and think I would love to visit (esp Kyoto for the temples) but the long flight puts me off. There must be a cruise or two I could do, surely?

    Oh yeah. We are definitely not going just as soon as we can’t make it there. 🙂 #FeetDoTravel

    It’s very lovely of you to visit Japan to save me going, and after reading your post, I definitely don’t want to go there now … I NEED to go! I cannot live the rest of my life not travelling to this amazing country, it’s now a right of passage for me as a traveller … it’s something I feel I should do! Japan is absolutely top of my bucket list. Pinned for when I visit! #feetdotravel

    Haha! Most amusing. I thought this would be tongue in cheek based on the title. Lovely photos! 🙂

    The hubby lived in Japan 3 years and has been saying the same thing! I’ll think we’ll be visiting in the next year or two. Great photos!

    You took some wonderful images in Japan and added a nice bit of sarcasm! I’ve canceled my upcoming trip to Japan, lol.

      Haha, yes my plan worked! Funnily enough I was there 2 days ago! Clearly not listening to my own advice!

    Hahahah. Love it! Beautiful photography. You have managed to make us smile and be jealous both at the same time. Japan is such an amazing country!

    Yeh, it looks pretty dull. Your posts from there haven’t made me want to go back in the slightest. Those photos above are terrible and in no way make me want to visit immediately. *not

    Sarcasm is one of my favorite things, and so this was fabulous. A nice change of pace from articles taking themselves too seriously. Loved it! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    It does have the opposite effect 😀 Japan looks stunning and I’d love to visit that part of the world. It looks so different to anything I’ve seen so far, not sure about the food though – looks quite bland 😀

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your sarcasm! AT first, when we read your title we thought that you were the only person in the world not to love Japan! Perfect title as in fact it encouraged us to read your article. Very nice article and different to the usual posts so well done! Love the photos too! We have been to Japan in the past but we can’t really say that we know it as we only visited Tokyo and Kamakura. Your post made us want to go back and explore more!

      Thank you! My worry was that my photos won’t be good enough and people won’t get the message!

    I knew I missed Japan already but you just reinforced the feeling. I had to click to see how you could possibly find a single reason NOT to visit Japan….I see what you did there. Japan will forever be one of my top favorite countries to visit!
