Learn More: eVisa
The government of Japan has announced that, coinciding with the 2020 Olympic Games, they will be launching an electronic visa (eVisa) system in April 2020. This means that tourists from countries that previously required a trip to the Japanese embassy or consulate, will now be able to process their eVisa completely online.
To trial the system before the 2020 Olympic season begins, the government of Japan has announced it will be offering the eVisa initially to citizens of China.
Travelers who use the eVisa program apply and pay a fee online, and then receive their electronic visa via email before traveling to Japan. Yes, it's that simple.
The eVisa is an official document permitting entry into and travel within Japan. Applicants will receive their visas via email after filling out the application form with the necessary information and once the online credit card payment is completed/verified.

Frequently Asked Questions
Japan is a country in East Asia, and is also known as the ‘Land of the Rising Sun.’ One of the best things about Japan is that the past meets the future in one place. The highly traditional culture has fully embraced the modern world, and that is what makes Japan a fantastic place to visit. While you are there, you will experience a little bit of everything and bring home unforgettable memories.
Japan is a beautiful contradiction: modern buildings and smart technology right alongside ancient social customs and rituals. You are bound to have a wonderful experience since the people are incredibly polite and welcoming, the cuisine is delicious, and there are a million attractions for all kinds of tourists. We recommend that you get out of the hustle and bustle of Tokyo to explore 'the Land of the Rising Sun'. Hot springs, mountains, and villages are both exciting and puzzling at times. Take your time and you'll find something new at every turn.
The language used in Japan is Japanese, although the country has no official language. Getting around should not be too complicated. Adults under 40 have studied English in school, but they tend to be better in writing than in conversation. At the same time, if you plan on visiting rural areas, far from the major tourist attractions, then it would be best if you learned a few phrases in Japanese. Not many people speak English in the countryside, and you will have difficulty getting around.
The best time of year to travel in Japan depends on what you want to see. Japan has all four seasons, and each of them has something to offer. However, you should aim for the spring or autumn. You can see the world-renowned cherry blossoms in the spring. Japanese people have made this natural occurrence into a big event. There are festivals you can join, along with many other celebrations. Just remember that the Sakura trees do not blossom at the same time everywhere. The climate is a bit milder in the south than in the north, so it makes sense that it occurs in the south first.
In the autumn, you can experience another beautiful natural occurrence. Fall usually comes with a wide variety of colors as the trees prepare to sleep during the winter and lose their leaves. But not before they play around with colors ranging from bright red to brown.
One thing that may interest you during the winter is the wide variety of hot springs. Japan is full of them, and nothing compares to shaking off low temperatures by submerging yourself in steaming hot water outside.
As to what you can see in Japan, it’s difficult to know where to start. But you can begin with castles. One particularity about Japanese castles is that they look nothing like the European castles you may be familiar with. They are made of wood, and make a striking appearance from the outside. It is a known fact that Japanese culture includes a lot of skill when it comes to putting piece of wood together, and the castle builders were, indeed, artists. Plus, the gardens surrounding Japanese castles are little pieces of heaven.
Buddhist temples may also be something you are interested in. One of the primary religions in Japan is Buddhism, and as you can imagine, there is a temple in every single establishment.
Regarding what you can do in Japan, the possibilities are numerous. For one thing, you can go and see Mount Fuji. It is the highest point in Japan, and many tourists go there for sightseeing and mountain climbing. One of the things for which Mount Fuji is famous is its incredible view from the top. Another thing that may be of interest is the Haguro Mountain. It is considered holy by the Japanese people. The interesting thing here is that you can climb the mountain using the 2446 stone steps. It may sound like an incredible effort, and it is, but only if you have a poor physical condition. You can stop multiple times on your way up, and the sights you see as you go through the primeval forest is worth the climb.
While in Japan, one of the things you must take advantage of is the cuisine. Japan is an island, and it is mostly self-reliant when it comes to food. That is why Japanese cuisine is based on vegetables. And, of course, beef. Japanese beef is famous all around the world, and if you want to have a taste of the best, you should go to Kobe. Surely you have heard about Kobe beef before. One meal is indeed not the cheapest affair, but it is worth it. You have to regard the whole thing as an experience in itself. Plus, the Japanese way of cooking is interesting as well. Some meals are prepared by yourself, right on the table in front of you.
The bottom line is that Japan should be on your bucket list. The people are known for their incredibly generous hospitality, and you are sure to have a wonderful time. There are plenty of sights to see, and a lot of things you can do. Japan is a country that has plenty to offer on all fronts.
