Japan is a wondrous place for travelers who enjoy both big cities and the rural side of life. Going to Japan as a foreign national usually requires that you have a visa, and getting a visa can seem like a burden when you have to go to the consulate or embassy to apply.
Luckily, the Japanese e-Visa program will begin in April 2020. This means that South Korea citizens will be able to get a Japanese e-Visa that works just like a standard visa. You will save time and energy when getting an e-Visa because you can apply for it directly from your computer or smart device.
