Hi! I’m Jonny, a guy who left home 20+ years ago to travel the world on a budget and am still going. These days I tend to stay a lot longer in places to really explore the culture of a destination. I started Backpackingman in 2013 as a blog to inspire and give advice to other travellers.
I’m a self confessed Japan addict, and have spent a lot of time writing an in-depth guide to the country after spending several months travelling there.
