Is it easy to travel in Japan or book a tour group?

Jump to last reply

Hi all

I have never been to Japan and thinking of going in late September for 3 weeks (that's the most time I can get off work). My question is: is it easy to get around Japan independently? are there English signs in the train stations or is everything in Japanese? is it easy for me to do it DIY, once I have an idea on itinerary or is it best to book a tour group to get round the language barrier?

Any suggestions or help is much appreciated.
