Hi, I’m Jonny.


As you’re here I’m guessing you may be new to Backpackingman.

To give a quick description of Backpackingman would be to say that it’s about providing adventure guides, travel advice, thoughts on life, and more. I have been travelling since 1997.

I have spent several months in Japan so there is a large focus on that here as well.

I wanted to make my website easy to navigate so you can find exactly what you are looking for without having to go through a maze of articles. That’s why this is a good place to start.


You won’t find all about me and why I started this blog here. For that you can go to the about me page where I’ll share with you my story and give you links to more personal posts about my life experiences with travel.

Looking for adventure? Head to my adventure guides section.

Interested in Japan? Go to my ever-expanding Japan guide.

For all the countries I have written about visit my destinations page.

Want to get in touch with me? Go to my contact page.


I hope you can find what you are looking for in all of this.

Safe travels friend.
