What is the Japan Health Declaration?
Learn more about Japan tourism
Japan is one of the most popular nations in Asia due to its cosmopolitan cities, huge imperial palaces, mountainous parks, and impressive commercial and cultural influence worldwide. It is home to the famous “bullet train” that connects the main cities of Kyushu, Honshu, and Hokkaido. Japan is also home to probably the most modern city in the world: Tokyo. Before planning your trip to Japan, remember to make sure of having the travel documentation required, including the Japan Health Declaration. You can apply for the Japan Health Declaration on our website if you want to save time avoiding crowded websites. This way, you’ll be able to receive your document as fast as possible by email inbox, and therefore, you won’t have to worry about applying while traveling.
Tokyo is located on the famous Tokyo Bay in the Kanto region of Honshu, which is Japan’s largest island. This city has the well-known Tokyo International Airport, where you’ll probably arrive from your country of origin. Tokyo is a popular place for fashion and shopping, especially in districts like Harajuku and Shibuya, but that’s not all you can do in this exciting place. In this city, you can explore Shinjuku, the business district. This place is a mix of stunning skyscrapers and atmospheric back streets with small and cozy bars. Plus, it’s the best place to go shopping and discover gorgeous souvenirs to take home.
You might think that Tokyo is all about modernity and neon lights, but that’s just part of it. For example, in Asakusa, the heart of Tokyo’s downtown, you can find ancient temples and traditional stores that look nothing like the most updated malls in Shinjuku. That doesn’t mean that the traditional site of Tokyo is boring, on the contrary, is as fascinating as the modern site. Tokyo is also a foodie paradise with more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other city abroad. Not to mention that you can eat a lot of food for affordable prices, especially if you go to ramen shops.
Do you like strolling fashionable streets? Then Harajuku and Omotesando might be your top districts. Both districts are hubs of Japanese and International fashion, including design houses, fashion malls, trendy cafes, and more. However, their aesthetics differ a lot, as Harajuku often shows the forefront of the next big local trend, while Omotesando focuses on timeless fashion. Omotesando is also more dedicated to luxury brands, while Harajuku is constantly full of thrift stores with secondhand clothing.
Aside from the top-spots in Tokyo, there are other cities and towns in Japan you cannot forget to visit. One of them is Kyoto, which is known as the old imperial capital and cultural heart of Japan. Kyoto always attracts millions of visitors due to its traditional culture. In this place, you can find many shrines and temples. Some of them are the Kiyomizudera Temple and Kinkakuji, but we cannot forget to mention the bamboo groves of nearby Arashiyama, a famous heritage location.
By visiting Kyoto you’ll be able to stay in a traditional ryokan, enjoy nature to the fullest with seasonal changes and take a dip in a famous rejuvenating onsen. Plus, Kyoto is the best place to view the majesty of cherry blossoms during spring or brilliant foliage during autumn. Another thing you can do in Kyoto is to visit its Prefecture’s, which is full of rural areas. For example, in the northside, you can visit Amanohashidate, which has been considered one of Japan’s three most scenic spots. By exploring the mountainous side, you can enjoy Miyama, one of the last towns with thatched-roof farmhouses. Lastly, you can also visit Uji if you prefer to taste delicious dishes and the best green tea in the country.
There are other cities in Japan that are worth the visit, like Osaka, Nara, Okinawa, Hokkaido, Sapporo, Chiba, Kanto, and more. You can visit any of them depending on what you’re planning to do in the country. However, notice that there are some tourist spots you shouldn’t overlook while staying there. One of the most famous is the Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park, home to bands of macaques who come down from the mountains to warm up in the hot springs. This is an interesting place to appreciate nature and Japanese wildlife as many people love to see how the macaques enjoy hot water all year long.
Another must-see when visiting Japan is Mount Fuji, which is the highest peak in the country. Located in Honshu, Mt. Fuji is actually a volcano that hasn't been active since 1707. This mount is a paradise when watching a sunrise, as you can see the sun’s first appearance on the easter horizon. This is a breathtaking experience for any traveler, but keep in mind that to enjoy it you must be well-prepared for hiking and trekking.
Other tourist spots you cannot forget are the Ginzan Onsen, Furano Ski Resort, and the Kerama Islands, to mention some.
Aside from planning your trip to Japan carefully, remember that some things are mandatory to prevent any health risk while staying there. It’s true that due to the covid-19 pandemic, it’s obligatory to wear masks, but before this pandemic, Japan was very popular for its citizens wearing masks just like a daily basis. Therefore, you might need to pack some of them when traveling there not only for covid-19 but also for health measures.
As for travel papers, remember that the Japan Health Declaration is a requirement that most travelers must have before entering Japan. The authorities will ask you to present the Japan Health Declaration upon arrival, so you shouldn’t forget about it. Remember that the Japan Health Declaration is an electronic document, so you’ll be able to have it through an online platform like the one we offer at iVisa.com.
Getting the Japan Health Declaration won’t be challenging thanks to our modern software, so we recommend you to apply for it at least 72 hours before your trip. Don’t forget about the COVID-19 PCR test to process this document, as it will also be mandatory when arriving in Japan!
