Travel Tips

Travel documents: Passports must have 6 months validity by the time of return.
US and Canadian passport holders do not require a visa if staying in Japan less than 90 days.

For Visa requirements please refer to CITB Visas.

Currency: The unit of Japanese currency is yen. Coins are available in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 50, 100 and 500 Yen and bank notes in denominations of 1,000, 2,000 (very rare), 5,000 and 10,000 Yen. Travelers Checks are accepted by leading banks, hotels, ryokan (Japanese inns) and stores in major cities. International credit cards such as American Express, VISA, Diners Club and MasterCard are also acceptable at these major establishments. However, credit card transactions are not always convenient outside big cities so obtaining cash beforehand is recommended when you travel to the countryside

Language: There is only one official language spoken in Japan, which is of course is Japanese. However, many Japanese are able to understand English to a certain extent since English is the foreign language that everyone must learn as part of compulsory education. Even if you don't understand Japanese, you can still certainly enjoy Japan. But if you know a few everyday Japanese phrases then it will make your trip even more memorable. A few words make a big difference.

Weather: Japan has four distinctive seasons. In spring, The plum blossom is a good sign that the cold winter will soon end and spring is just around the corner, followed by the cherry blossoms in March and early April. Summer begins in June with a three to four week rainy season and then it becomes seriously hot and humid from July onward. Autumn always brings freshness with a light breeze and cool temperature after the hot and humid summer. Winter weather ranges according to the geographic location. The temperature rarely drops below 0°C in the plains along the Pacific coast during wintertime. It is very dry and very sunny. Central Japan and Northern Japan are highly reputed regions for winter sports. Southern Japan is comparatively mild and pleasant in winter.

What to Pack: Tourists can prepare clothes according to the following:
Spring: Mar – May Light jackets, light sweaters and other similar kinds of tops.
Summer: Jun – Aug Light clothes (cardigans are handy, since indoors are mostly air-conditioned.)
Autumn: Sep – Nov Light jackets, light sweaters and other similar kinds of tops.
Winter: Dec – Feb Overcoat and sweaters, etc.

Power Supply: Voltage – 100V. Frequency – 50Hz (Eastern Japan) / 60Hz (Western Japan including Nagoya, Kyoto & Osaka). A convertible type of electrical appliance such as a hair dryer, travel iron and shaver will therefore be handy; otherwise a step-down transformer is required to convert the voltage. There are no columnar-shaped plugs or 3-pin plugs used in Japan but 2-flat-pin plugs are used instead. It is therefore advised to purchase a plug adapter beforehand.

Tips & Gratuities: Tipping is generally not customary in Japan.
