Saving Money For Travel Tips To Tokyo: Saving $24 a day means keeping a keen eye on your expenses. Here are a few quick tips:

  • Cook at home instead of dining out.
  • Opt for public transport over personal vehicles.
  • Limit non-essential purchases like that extra coffee.

Your Tokyo Itinerary: A Dream in Motion Now that you’re on your way to saving, let’s talk about what awaits in Tokyo:

  • Explore Akihabara: Dive into the heart of Tokyo’s electronic and gaming culture.
  • Mario Go-Kart Experience: Zoom through the streets dressed as your favorite character.
  • Savor Japanese Cuisine: From sushi to ramen, your taste buds are in for a treat.

Akihabara is a popular destination for Otakus, with numerous shops selling anime, manga, and video games. We recommend visiting on Sundays when the main street closes to car traffic, making it easier to walk around. There are also numerous electronics stores, including the 9-floor Yodobashi Camera and small one-person stalls.

Four Side Gigs to Fuel Your Tokyo Trip

Tutoring: Knowledge for Cash If you have expertise in a particular subject, tutoring could be a lucrative option. Websites like Tutor.com or even local community boards can help you find students. The flexibility of scheduling and the satisfaction of helping others make this a fulfilling side gig.

Dog Walking: Paws for Cash Love pets? Dog walking is a great way to earn extra cash. Platforms like Rover or Wag connect you with pet owners in your area. It’s not just good for your wallet but also for your health!

Uber Driving: On-the-Go Earnings Uber drivers make half of what they used to make a few years ago, but even after the cost of gas and general maintenance, you can earn $24 in less than 90 minutes of driving. You can earn money while exploring your city, whether it is early in the morning or late at night.

Freelance Writing: Words That Pay With websites like Upwork or Freelancer, you can dive into freelance writing. Whether it’s blog posts, articles, or copywriting, your words can open a world of opportunities. The best part? You can write from anywhere, anytime.

Finally, Tokyo Is Calling! With these side hustles and money-saving ideas, you are not only planning a trip; you are preparing for an incredible journey. So, get to planning and start hustling, and before you know it, you will be living the Tokyo dream!
