Which apps do you use when you travel to Japan, especially for the first time ? I need help on this.
I am planning to travel to Japan soon. And I am not good at preparation work in travel like searching travel guides, travel tip, making travel plans, and I don't like bringing a heavy guidebook like Lonely Planet during my travel. So is there any great travel app for Japan travel ?
Thank you very much !

I didn't have a smartphone when I lived in Japan, but this is the app for the train travel website I used often;
Tokyo Route Planner

One app I find very useful, no matter where I am going, is xe, available in the App Store, or see their website, xe.com
This is a currency conversion app that give you live, up to the minute exchange rates for just about every currency imaginable. Helpful if you are at a store and want to know just how much that item is in you home currency without having to do the math in your head.
Japan wi-fi and google maps, only two apps I've ever used in Japan and I've always gotten by splendidly with those two. 😊
Besides apps that helps me for traveling, I always use apps like Cinch as I like to listen to music when traveling. It's useful as I don't know if all areas have wifi or internet but you can record your music and listen at your smartphone, check it here <snip>
