I'm an introverted (but not shy) 33yo solo traveler from the Philippines. I will be in Japan for two weeks next Cherry Blossom season and I am looking for a new friend through this trip! Men, women, straight or queer, I really don't care as long as you are not too young (18-23), or trying to find romance through this method haha. I am open to someone who would like to join me for activities and things I've got planned up. As you can guess from my very early post lol, I am very meticulous, organized, and advanced when it comes to planning. I always have a nice itinerary prepared for every day of my travels which I create based on extensive research (you won't believe how extensive lol). I think too much spontaneity can ruin travel because of very possible commute mishaps, lack of information, and waste of precious time; plus I kinda subscribe to the "anything that could go wrong WILL go wrong if you don't try to prevent it" belief... I promise I'm not a pessimist haha!

I also speak fluent Tagalog and English, and just elementary Spanish and Nihongo. My French is not good at all lol.

Anyways, I have plans to hit up the major districts in Tokyo except for maybe Asakusa and Ginza, explore anime hotspots, see Teamlabs, watch Noh if there is a scheduled show, go to Disney Sea and Ghibli Museum, explore Kyoto and Arashiyama, see the important parks and buildings of Nara, check out the park and castle in Osaka, experience Kabuki theatre, eat till I bust on Dotonbori, learn more about war history in Hiroshima, experience nature in Miyajima, and slow down, eat and stroll around Hakata. I will say that I am unreliable for bar crawls and a lot of adult nightlife stuff because I'm sober and I try to rest my feet and sleep right after dinner and my evening hygiene routine. I'm a grandma that way lol.

If you feel like joining me for some of the stuff I'm doing or you would like to compare itineraries, don't hesitate to reach out!
Arigatou gozaimasu!

Hello! I'm a 35-year-old man from Canada also planning on traveling around then, maybe Mar 28-Apr 9, 2024. I have only booked the return leg of my flights. We might have some overlap. I don't have any itinerary planned yet but think it's impressive that you do and that I should probably get on top of it, too. Hope you have a safe and enjoyable trip

Hey there! I am Sheena 32f from the USA, and I'm also looking for a travel buddy for the next Cherry Blossom season in Japan. It'll be my first trip out of the country, so I am a but nervous going solo (getting lost!) and hope to make friends along the way.

I am a fellow introvert, speak fluent English and conversational Spanish, fan of anime, and plan to visit a lot of the spots you've already listed as well. And most importantly taste as much delicious food as I can!

If interested in connecting, please reach out. My email is or add me on Instagram: yoshiina

Hey hi! I'm Romana, living in The Netherlands and I'm also looking to travel to Japan, in March. :) I'm also quite introvert, but around the right people and the right connection.. As second stop to my trip I want to go to the Philippines so, maybe you can tell me some stuff about that too!

My English is fluent, German is not that great but, if its needed I got the basics lol.

I do have some stuff I want to see, but I'm open for anything. Ngl I find it extremely scary to travel alone, hence the search for a companion for at least some times there.

Introverted by nature but I can put on an extrovert facade if needed. Traveling to Japan on 22nd March to 6th April but mostly staying in Tokyo however might go to Ghibli Park near Nagoya (obviously a fan). Anime lover hence the need to go to Akihabara or some recommended anime haven (will be researching on this more). Would also need to visit Harry Potter studios - non-negotiable for me but you need not go. Will hit pubs in the evening and it's fine I go solo. Hoping to meet new friends and friendly companions.

Fluent in Tagalog, English and I only know 10 Japanese words. Originally from Philippines too but now living in Australia. Hit me up if we can join forces conquering Japan! Alex -

Hi 😊 I’m Simay from Turkey but I live in Czech Republic. I want to be in Tokyo during the Sakura season, but I thought like 20-25 April would be better. Are you flexible with the dates? It is amazing that you plan in detail, im good at following the plan and the group decisions 😊
