About me

Being interviewed on NHK Television!

Hi, my name’s Matt (マット in Japanese!). I have been to Japan on countless occasions, but I’m originally from England. Having lived and traveled all over the country, with not much money in my pocket, I know the best tricks. Writing about travel is my passion.

Be sure to join me on Instagram for the latest pictures from my travels. Also check out my new site, Taiwanna Travel, if you are interested in going to Taiwan.

My mission

To create the ultimate guidebooks for low-cost travel in Japan. I want budget travellers from across the world to use my books, so they can have a chance to enjoy Japan’s amazing tourist spots on the cheap. Super Cheap Japan will focus on getting the most out of these wonderful places, whether you are a backpacker, budget traveler, worker or student.
