About us

We started the website Japan Here We Come to share our love for this fantastic country. We are Kris and Sylvia, 2 passionate travelers.  Our goal is to discover the world and that is why we almost always travel to a new undiscovered place. Still, since we discovered Japan, we have been back every year.

We fell in love head over heels with this magnificent country, its delicious cuisine, and its intriguing culture.

Every single trip we embarked on was an absolute adventure! Each time again we were blown away by the stunning places we discovered, the incredible people we met, and the yummy cuisine that tickled our taste buds!

We have made it our mission to help you create an incredible trip to the Land of the Rising Sun.

We started this site because we want you to enjoy Japan just as much as we do. That’s why we share as much information as possible that can help you plan your trip.

We want your trip to Japan to be an absolute delight from start to finish!

What to expect

We love to arrange our own plans and travel independently as much as possible.  It gives us the freedom to do exactly as we want. 

That’s why our main emphasis on Japan Here We Come is on providing you with valuable information on how to explore Japan on your own terms. We will equip you with the knowledge and resources you need to have a fulfilling and independent adventure in this fascinating country.

When it comes to travel, our top priority is the experiences we gain. And Japan offers a plethora of them! From indulging in traditional tea ceremonies and relaxing visits to onsen, to embarking on thrilling adventures at amusement parks and exploring unique theme cafes, there’s no shortage of exciting activities in Japan.

While photographs serve as tangible mementos, they often end up collecting dust over time. On the other hand, experiences hold a special place in our hearts and are frequently reminiscenced even years later.

That’s why we always leave ample space in our travel plans to truly experience the country and we recommend you do the same if you travel to Japan.
