How far in advance do you usually plan your day trips?

How far in advance do you usually plan your day trips? The most common response to this question was “one week ago” (28.5%).
The next results were “2-3 weeks ago (26%)” and “1 month ago (18.5%).” Many people make plans with some time in advance, and those who make last-minute plans are now in the minority.
How far in advance do you usually plan a trip that involves overnight stays?

Regarding how far in advance they often plan “travels that involve overnight stays,” the first place was “one month in advance (35%),” and the second place was “two months in advance (23%).” I tend to plan ahead overall more than I would for a day trip. In particular, many people make plans several months in advance.
How do you usually decide where to travel?
When asked how they usually decide on their travel destinations, the first answer was “Looking at the internet (51.5%),” and the second answer was “On a whim (18.5%).” When you see photos of someone going on a trip on social media or see recommended sightseeing spots introduced, you just want to go.
Do you want to plan in advance a detailed itinerary for your overnight trip? When asked whether they plan a detailed activity schedule in advance when traveling to a destination that involves overnight stays, the first response was “I plan a general destination and schedule (74.5%),” and the second response was “I plan the approximate destination and travel schedule.” Plan your time (16.5%). There were far more people who only thought of a rough schedule than those who made detailed schedules. If you have a tight schedule, you may not have much flexibility.
Why did you choose the above?
1st place: Plan a rough destination and schedule
Plan your destination so you don’t end up wishing you had gone there later. (Female in her 20s)

By making a list of the places you want to go in advance, you can avoid forgetting to visit on the day (50s ~ male).

So that you can do what you want to do without missing out. So that you can eat delicious food and visit tourist spots efficiently. (Female in her 40s)

It’s easier to move around if you have a certain plan (man in his 40s)

I make plans so that I don’t end up wishing I had gone to a place I had already checked out, even though I’m nearby. (Female in her 40s)

It’s better to have a clue in mind so you don’t get lost. I’m making a list of places I want to go. (Female in her 20s)

Train and bus times may be short, so research and plan accordingly. Other than that, I can only make rough decisions because things change depending on whether I see a good restaurant or meet someone at that time. (Female in her 30s)

I often do sports like canoeing with my children. Reservations are essential, so you’ll have to plan ahead. (50s~Male)

I don’t set exact times, but I’m indecisive and get lost easily, so I research the places I want to go (female in her 30s)

I usually decide where to stay and where I want to go, and then decide after I get there. Especially when it comes to food, I often end up being disappointed, so I go to the place and decide based on the atmosphere. (Male in his 40s)

Because I have children, things often don’t go as planned. (Female in her 30s)

Decide what to do in the morning and afternoon, and what to eat. Even if you make detailed decisions, you’ll probably go crazy, and if you’re tied to time, it won’t be fun. But I decide because planning itself is fun. (Male in his 40s)

Basically, I only decide on the shops and locations I want to visit, and I don’t decide on detailed times. That way you can enjoy it more locally (Female in her 40s)

I think you should make a rough decision and then do whatever you want on the day. (Female in her 40s)

It will be a more enjoyable trip if you decide on a rough itinerary and then move around depending on the local crowd situation and your mood at the time, so plan within the above range. (Male in his 40s)

*
Many people said they should decide in advance the places they want to visit, but not the exact time. While the plan is to make sure there’s nothing left undone, it seems like it would be good to have some freedom to act. *

2nd place: Plan your stay and travel time for each destination Because we want to avoid unexpected troubles as much as possible while traveling and have an enjoyable trip. The action schedule is summarized in a table. (Female in her 40s)

I want to visit all the places I want to go, so as I research whether it’s possible, I end up deciding on the detailed schedule. (Female in her 30s)

Before going, think about changing the course depending on the weather (50s ~ female)

Because of my personality, I don’t feel satisfied unless I thoroughly research routes and food (Female in her 50s)

I want to plan my schedule in advance to minimize anxiety. (Male in his 40s)

It’s a big premise that your schedule will go awry, but you won’t be able to decide how many places you can visit unless you decide exactly. (Female in her 20s)

I don’t want to waste time at the destination, so I plan my trip well before going on a trip. (Female in her 40s)

If you don’t make a detailed plan, you’ll end up with a plan that’s impossible to implement. I decide what to do and how long to stay at each destination. (Male in his 30s)

By making a detailed plan, you can see how far you can go. When I arrive, I calculate everything including travel time and plan how many hours I can stay there. (Male in his 30s)

When I travel to a place that I can’t easily visit, I want to enjoy the things I want to do as much as possible without wasting any time. Plan your destination, length of stay, and route. (Female in her 30s)

*
The reasons given were that they wanted to enjoy their trip without wasting any time and wanted to eliminate anxiety. Some people said they had several plans in mind. *

3rd place: I don’t make any decisions other than booking accommodation. Since I’m using a Seishun 18 Ticket, it would be difficult to move if I completely decided where to go, and I’d rather enjoy the trip leisurely, even if I make mistakes, than be stressed out by going exactly as planned. (Female in her 40s)

This is because I want to decide based on my mood at the time. (Female in her 40s)

I like to walk around and enjoy the places I travel to. When I make plans, I sometimes get an obsessive feeling that if I don’t follow the schedule, I won’t be able to enjoy it, and I’ve felt constrained by that. (Female in her 20s)

I’m not really interested in sightseeing and would rather just relax at the hotel, so other than big plans like watching sports, I’d rather do whatever I feel like at the time. (50s~Male)

Once you have decided on a place to stay, all you have to do is search for information about the area on the internet and go there. (Male in his 40s)

I change it depending on the situation (crowds, weather, etc.) and my mood (man in his 50s)

I don’t know how tired I am until the day of the event, so I don’t want to make too many plans. (Female in her 30s)

Detours are interesting, and I often get lost, so I can’t make it on time. (Female from 50s)

Because what you want to do may change by the day of the event (man in his 40s)

I’m not going on a tour, so I don’t have much plans other than staying overnight. Because I want to enjoy what is there firsthand. (Male in his 40s)

* Some respondents said they like traveling without making plans, they want to act according to their mood that day, and they want to take it easy. *

Summary of survey results
We conducted a survey of 200 men and women regarding their travel plans. When asked how far in advance they usually plan a “day trip,” the most common answer was “one week in advance.” If it’s a day trip, you don’t need to plan that far in advance.
When asked how far in advance they often plan “travels that involve overnight stays,” “one month in advance” was ranked first. Traveling with overnight stays will require longer travel times, so it’s best to plan ahead to some extent.
When asked how they most often decide on their travel destinations, the most common answer was “looking on the internet.” There are many people who share information on SNS, so you won’t have any trouble choosing a destination.
When asked whether they plan a detailed itinerary in advance when traveling to a destination that involves overnight stays, the majority answered, “I plan a rough destination and itinerary.” If you decide what you want to do, where you want to go, and what you want to eat, you will likely have fewer regrets on your trip.
