Japan Travel Tour FAQs

Where should I visit in Japan on my 1st-time tour routes?

From north to south, Japan comprises five main islands: Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa, each of which has different geographical features and a variety of travel experiences. These main islands are incredibly easy to get across and around by the country’s efficient public transport: the shinkansen (bullet train) network from Hokkaido to the southern tip of Kyushu, and the convenient airlines in big cities. If you’re first-time visitors to Japan wanting to catch a glimpse of this mesmerizing country, make sure to add some of the best destinations on your travel itinerary, including the vibrant capital city Tokyo, the cultural capital Kyoto, Mount Fuji, the foodie’s heaven Osaka, and a host of famed attractions in Hakone and Hiroshima as well.

How long do I need to explore Japan?

Japan has so many things to offer. Visitors who are planning their Japan trip should decide a travel itinerary according to the length of your stay. Generally speaking, a holiday in Japan for 2 weeks or longer is usually recommended for those wanting to experience all the best of this Asian country. If your trip is short for a maximum of 5 days, it’s better to make the most of your vacation in one big city as the travel time to another might take much time. The ideal time budget is from 7 to 10 days, which wouldn’t take you all around but provide the best highlights of the nation.

What is the best time to visit Japan?

Japan is a large archipelago extended in latitude with diverse climates from north to south: cold in the north, temperate in the central regions, and almost tropical on the southern islands. As each season in Japan has its charm and weather varies a lot from place to place across the country, Japan is an incredible year-round destination for all travellers. However, if you need an answer for the best time to visit Japan, it’s generally recommended between March and May, or October and November. If you don’t care much about the weather and the crowds of tourists around, let’s consider your interests and what each season can bring to your holiday. Spring in Japan (mid-March to May) is famous for the pink hues of cherry blossoms and the Golden Week. Summer in Japan (June to mid-September) is filled with colourful festivals but it’s also the hottest time of year with high chances of rains and typhoons. Fall (mid-September to early December ) is the magical season in Japan with brilliant autumn colours and pleasant temperatures, while winter (December to mid-March) is perfect for enjoying onsen and skiing.

Which destinations should I visit in Japan?

There is a handful of enchanting tourist attractions throughout the islands of Japan that you should add on your next itinerary trip in Japan. While the capital city Tokyo is a great destination to explore the ancient traditions and modern life co-existing in harmony, the neighbouring towns as Hakone and Kamakura are ideal to explore the country’s history and natural beauty. Typically, a trip to see from afar or conquer the iconic Fuji Mount is a must to any travellers to Japan. If you’re into the cultural diversity, don’t miss out the world heritage sites in the former capital cities like Kyoto and Nara. A relaxing beach holiday on the pristine white shores of Okinawa is surely an excellent option for families with kids and honeymooners.

Is tipping mandatory in Japan?

Tipping generally isn't a part of the culture in Japan and if you’re doing it the wrong way, it could come across as rude. As Japanese people respect the dignity and hard work, they will not be expecting a tip. You can check the bill at the hotels and restaurants to see if there is a service charge. If you don’t see, it's still not suggested you tip since leaving a tip can insinuate that the person you're tipping does not earn a fair wage. There are only a few times that you need to give a tip, such as your tour guide provides an excellent tour beyond your expectations, you can try to tip them. And the appropriate way is putting the tip in a nice envelope, seal it, and give it with both hands and a slight bow.

Is the food in Japan safe and clean?

As one of the cleanest countries in the world, the level of care and hygiene put into food in Japan is top-notch as well. You can safely enjoy local food in a variety of eateries and restaurants. The most popular delicacies are sushi, sashimi, tempura, udon, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc. Though these specialities are followed extremely strict food preparation standards by skilled chefs, it’s better to avoid eating raw food if you have problem adjusting while travelling overseas.

Best Japan SIM card to buy

The most practical SIM card for tourists to Japan is the Mobal Japan Unlimited SIM, not the cheapest but the only provider with full English support and voice calling. Other popular options on the ground are prepaid U-mobile, OCN and Rakuten SIMs. If you want to save time and effort, you can easily order a SIM online in advance and take it from the pick-up points in the cities. Another way is buying a SIM card from the airport’s sales points, which is convenient but a little pricey. If you’ve missed both options, pay a visit to Bic Camera and Yodobashi Camera for a wide range of providers.

What is Japan’s preferred currency?

The Japanese currency is the yen and it is accepted for all payments in Japan. Paper money comes in 1,000 yen, 2,000 yen, 5,000 yen and 10,000 yen denominations, while coins are denominated in 1 yen, 5 yen, 10 yen, 50 yen, 100 yen and 500 yen. Foreign currencies are only accepted at major international airports. If you look for currency exchange, find a handful of licensed money changers at international airports or large hotels and banks. All tourists are recommended to change for yen before coming into Japan and cash is handy since ATM withdrawal might not work with cards issued outside of Japan.

Is the tap water in Japan clean to drink?

Tap water is drinkable in Japan since the country owns a reliable water infrastructure and well-maintained purification facilities. You can even buy bottled Tokyo tap water for around 100 yen in Ueno Park or Tokyo Station. However, if you have a problem with the stomach, it’s better to use bottled water for safety.

Cash or credit card in Japan?

Used to be a cash-based society, Japan now gradually accept other payment methods like credit and debit cards, especially in big cities. They are accepted by most hotels, large restaurants and stores. However, when visiting rural areas, tourist sights and small shops, cash is the most common payment method. It is also advisable to keep coins at hand if you use buses and trams or lockers.
