Frequently Asked Questions

Japan, historically referred to as the land of the rising sun, is an incredibly diverse country. It is made up of a total of 6852 islands, though the 4 biggest islands make up about 97% of the total land area. This means that the other 6848 islands go from medium, to small, to tiny. Also, not all of these islands are inhabited. This country is so full of experiences that are different to anywhere else, that even using a Japanese toilet is something to tell people at home about. Tokyo, Japan’s capital, is not only the biggest city in the country but, arguably, the world. Approximately 37 million people live in Tokyo. Japan is a year-round destination. Each season has its own charm and there are many things to see and do at any time of the year. Japan is famous for having both deep traditions and also being home to plenty of modern innovation. While there’s no better place to experience Japan’s futuristic side than Tokyo, to experience the beauty of traditional Japanese culture you’ll want to head away from the major cities and into the countryside. Japan has one of the best rail services in the world. The trains in Japan are super-fast and comparatively affordable. Travelers can buy train tickets at touch screen vending machines, kiosks, travel agencies and even online. The Japan Rail Pass is also a great option for visitors who will be traveling different cities across Japan in a short timeframe, as it is a multi-use discounted ticket valid on all JR national trains. The Japan Rail Pass can only be bought from outside Japan and it is only for tourists with a temporary visitor visa. Anyone with a longer stay visa (such as for work, study or if you are permanent resident) is not eligible. The Japan Rail Pass can be purchased for either 7, 14, or 21 consecutive days. The days cannot be split up, or additional days added to the initial selection paid for. All of the main big cities in Japan have their own subway system. A ride costs close to 2 US dollars, depending on the length of the journey. Here. also, if a visitor will be in the same city for multiple days and plans to ride the subway a lot, it is advisable to purchase a subway pass. Japan is also known for having a fascinating and contrasting culture. Japan’s traditional culture dates back centuries, while Japan’s youth are developing new trends that are constantly pushing societal norms of what should be changed and what should remain the same. Teenagers have developed their own fashion styles with tons of variations, to the point where now you can wear anything you want in Japan. However, there is only one thing that you should keep in mind. While visiting temples and shrines make sure to wear something that covers your shoulders and knees. Manners are very important in Japan. Here are some etiquette issues to be aware of when visiting the country: Japanese greet each other by bowing. The depth of the bow ranges from a simple nod of the head (informal) to a deep bend at the waist (very formal). Don’t worry though, tourists are not expected to know bowing etiquette. Also, when entering a Japanese home, visitors are expected to remove their shoes. Often, restaurants and temples will also require you to remove your shoes. Japanese cuisine is renowned around the world, and with good reason. Japanese cuisine is best known for its use of fresh ingredients and careful attention to technique. Tokyo is also known as the culinary capital of the world, as it has more 5 Michelin-star restaurants than any other city. There are 6 sumo matches held each year. Three matches are held in Tokyo (January, May and September) one in Osaka (March), one in Nagoya (July) and one in Fukuoka (November). In Japan there are more elders than children. The childbirth rate in Japan is declining more rapidly than any other developed nation on Earth. It is also the country with the most vending machines in the world. There are thought to be more than 5 million vending machines across Japan, stocked with food, beverages, diapers, toys, and almost anything you can think of.
