#TravelBrainster Rachel – Japanese Temples and Not-to-Miss Accessories

Our today’s #TravelBrainster is a fellow travel blogger and currently headed for Japan (like me!). I always love to learn more about other travel lovers and I am sure you are just as curious about how and where they are travelling. Plus, you can learn a lot about travelling through them as well (I got amazing Japan tips from Rachel). Without much further ado, here is Rachel from Rachel from Ramblr, sharing her travel insights with us. And in case the travel bug bites, you can always find her online (links below the post).

If you were stranded on an island, which one should it be?

Everyone who knows me knows I love Japan, so I’ll just come out and say it. I’d pick Kyushu (one of Japan’s islands) if I had to be stranded on an island! The photo I’ve given to Travel on the Brain is a photo from Nanzoin Temple in Kyushu. It is located outside of Fukuoka near to Sasaguri and is accessible to tourists and locals alike. If you want to get out of the city for a day trip, this is one of the many sites you can visit. The temple rests on the edge of a forested area and features a large reclining Buddha statue. You can spend time looking around the temple grounds and enjoying the fresh air. I hope you all can visit Kyushu someday!

What is your secret travel tip?

My not-so-secret secret travel tip is to wear a scarf. They are easy to pack, wear, wash and reuse while out and about on your travels. Just throw one around your neck or in your bag the next time you travel and reap the benefits of scarf wearing that many travel tips attest to. Scarves provide warmth where you need it as well as a little style. I always find it useful to have a scarf with me to avoid getting a chill when the weather or air conditioning hits you unexpectedly. You can easily wash & dry your scarf at the end of the day by hand if it gets dirty while you are out and about. Try picking out a scarf on your next trip – it will make a useful souvenir!

Thanks for having me on Travel on the Brain! Happy travels everybody!
