Japan Travel FAQs

  • Can I travel to Japan without a visa?

    Citizens of 70 countries now get visa-free travel to Japan, including America, Australia, Canada, and most European countries. If you are a citizen of one of those countries, you may take a visa-free trip to Japan for up to 90 days. (Latest updated: Oct. 17th, 2023)

  • What are the highlights of Japan?

    Exquisite cherry blossoms, snow-capped volcanoes, natural hot springs, lively festivals, magnificent fireworks, shrines with red walls and giant torii, the bustling metropolis with colorful neon lights, ancient, solemn temples and delicate kimonos - all these could be symbols of beauty. And Japan is a country that paints the picture with all these elements-an island with a temperate climate and a beautiful living environment that creates the vibrant colors of the seasons with fascinating landmarks that never leave your mind.

  • When is the best time of year to visit Japan?

    Japan is a charming country to visit all year round, and each season offers a different highlight for visitors. With dreamlike cherry blossoms to feel the coming of spring, summer festivals with dancing, sea breezes, and night-blooming fireworks to be remembered, autumn leaves with the color of the sun that warm the whole country, and a world of cotton-covered winter snow to ski and explore, there is always something not to be missed at any time of the year!

    Note:
    The season of cherry blossoms in Japan is usually from March to April, while the time for seeing fall foliage in Japan is a little longer, from late September to early December. If you want to visit Japan during these two periods, you'd better plan your trip or reservation at least six months in advance to ensure you can get premium accommodation.

  • How long should I spend in Japan?

    For a complete visit to the main attractions and some special experiences, you can take a week-long trip to Japan. If you are in a hurry, you can spend three days in Tokyo and Kyoto, the most typical cities that can give a full representation of this country. While there is plenty of time for your Japan tour, you can take a longer trip of about two weeks, with more cities to visit and more details to experience, such as eating in Osaka, enjoying Hakone Onsen, marveling at the parks in Hiroshima, heading north to Hokkaido and other lovely cities.

  • How about public transport in Japan?

    Public transport in Japan is very convenient, with almost all cities connected by multi-line buses, subways and trains. With an IC card, which can be purchased at most train stations, you can easily get to the sights and attractions of Japan. 

    For one of the most comfortable ways to travel in Japan, try the Shinkansen. The Shinkansen is a railway system that runs through almost all of Japan's major cities, with high speeds, comfortable interiors to get you to your next destination, and some routes that sometimes have stunning exterior views of Mt. Fuji, making it very pleasant to travel between cities on the Shinkansen.

  • Is it necessary to change the Japanese Yen?


    Although UnionPay and JCB credit cards are widely accepted (with a 3% fee) at major hotels, shopping centers and restaurants, it is still necessary to change the Japanese yen. It is always a good idea to bring some cash with you as most street shops, restaurants and hotels prefer to charge in cash. You may also have some coins in case you need them, especially when visiting shrines. ATMs for exchanging currency are usually located at airports, so you can do this when you arrive in Japan if you have time. Alternatively, you can use the Post Office ATMs, Citibank ATMs or the internationally friendly ATMs that are easy to find in 7-Eleven convenience stores.

  • Do I need to tip my tour guides or driver in Japan?

    In Japan, tipping is not required or necessarily expected, but if you are satisfied with the service you receive, you can tip your guide or driver appropriately. To show your appreciation, you can tip each of them USD 5-10 per day.

  • When is the fireworks season in Japan?
    Summer is the peak season for firework shhows, from late July to the end of August, you can always find a grand festival to enjoy the night flower all over Japan. Such as the Edogawa Fireworks Festival in Tokyo, the Yodo River Fireworks Festival in Osaka and many more. Meanwhile, tickets can be booked as early as the beginning of May. So make your plans well in advance to get the most out of the fireworks festival.
