Japan on your travel budget

For a budget visit to Japan, hostel dormitories in major cities such as Tokyo will set you back around £20 a night. Fast food restaurants and supermarkets are an inexpensive way of eating.

For mid-range travellers, budget business hotels won’t break the bank. You can travel economically by train or domestic airline. And for lunch and dinner, cheaper Japanese restaurants are a good way of eating well for less.

At the pricier end, there are Western-style 4- and 5-star hotels, plus ryokans – traditional inns – that include 2 meals. The nicest sushi restaurants in town are more expensive, and with a high budget you can take high-speed trains all around the country.

  • A three-course meal for two with wine will cost about £35.28, our research found
  • Look for 100-yen vending machines – some charge 150 yen for drinks but the cheaper ones are emblazoned with a 100-yen sign across the front
  • Avoid Kyoto on weekends – accommodation prices are higher so try to visit Monday to Friday
