Top 10 Instagram accounts in Japan

The beauty of the web is that there are no borders. And the beauty of Instagram is that connects us through the visual. So, what can you do with “no-border visual”?

One of the thing I do when I travel is to look through Instagram map and see what people have posted around the area. I try to discard tourists’ photos and only concentrate on what the locals have posted. I like to see what they prefer to eat, discover those places unknown to travel guides and “pick up” the local vibe.

You can go through Instagram map even from home. Pick up any country and scroll through those pictures. Add people and accounts that pique your curiosity and interest to diversify your following. For if you don’t follow accounts from Iceland, Bali or Philippines, you are missing out a lot.

Today, I want to share with you the most-followed accounts in the Land of the Rising Sun. You can start following one of these accounts and then try to be more adventurous and discover on your own others less popular but surely more original.
