It is often the case that moving expenses are the number one cost of travel.
Unlike the case where you pay in a lump sum like accommodation expenses, it is difficult to notice the moving expenses, such as moving to the destination or moving after arriving at the site.
In fact, large cities such as Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka offer cheap tickets for tourists to keep their travel expenses low, but their popularity is still low.
Why don’t you use it? I thought, so I’ll introduce it!
