Tokyo is the capital of Japan and one of the most iconic cities in the world. It is known for its bustling streets, vibrant culture, and cutting-edge technology.

Tokyo is home to over 9 million people and is divided into 23 wards. Each ward has its distinct character, from Shinjuku’s bustling business district to Asakusa’s traditional temples. Tokyo is a city of contrasts, where ancient shrines sit alongside gleaming skyscrapers.

It is a city of dreams where you can find options to suit various interests. It is no wonder that Tokyo continues to be a popular destination for tourists from around the world.

2. Mount Fuji

Mount Fuji is one of Japan’s most iconic landmarks and a popular tourist destination. Located on the island of Honshu, it is the highest mountain in Japan and has been a source of inspiration for centuries. The mountain is an active volcano but hasn’t erupted since 1707. It is also home to many shrines and temples, including the famous Chureito Pagoda.

Climbing Mount Fuji is a popular activity, and many visitors come to view the sunrise from the peak. The mountain is also a popular spot for skiing and snowboarding in the winter months. Mount Fuji is truly a sight to behold, and a visit to this majestic mountain is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

3. Relax in an Onsen

Crack open a couple of books detailing Japan’s history, and you’ll find mentions of ancient temples, samurais, Nintendo, a sumo wrestling match, and even the country’s famous onsen hot springs. Onsens have been around for 3,000 years for good reason.

Rest in an onsen when you visit Japan, let the warmth flow through you, and you’ll agree this hot bath is as soothing as it gets.  Onset hot springs convert volcanic energy to the right temperature for mental and physical relaxation.

You can find onsens across nearly the entirety of Japan. Outdoor onsens in Zen gardens that provide unparalleled peace of mind after a day of walking, bus-riding, and train-catching. Onsens are also accessible in bathhouses available to the public, including tourists enjoying a dream trip to Japan.

Opt for an outdoor onsen, and you’ll relish the juxtaposition of the hot water with the fresh, natural scents of nearby pine trees. 

Resort towns such as Beppu and Kusatsu are two of the most popular destinations for onsen-lovers. Save your onsen experience for the evening after a long day of travel, soak in the warmth, and you’ll feel an invaluable sense of relief.

We would be remiss to gloss over the fact that it is necessary to thoroughly bathe at separate bathing facilities before entering a public onsen.  Wash off so you are completely clean, and you’ll be welcomed into the onsen of your choice.

Open up a Japan travel guide, and you’ll find at least a paragraph or two about the importance of understanding the local customs of traditional Japanese culture. Many onsens are used by Japanese people in their birthday suits, meaning you’ll be surrounded by naked travelers and natives while enjoying your time at many onsens.

However, covering up for those who prefer modesty is possible. Certain onsen public bathhouses provide modesty towels that will keep you comfortable if you prefer not to be seen in your birthday suit for the few hours you spend in the water.

4. Visit a Robot Restaurant

Pick up a Japan travel guide, and you will likely find mention of robot restaurants.  Japan’s robots, unique vending machines, Hello Kitty games, and other distinctive tech innovations are regularly featured in Western mainstream news media in reverence for their ingenuity.

In particular, the Robot Restaurant in the Shinjuku Kabukicho space, often referred to as Japan’s red-light district, is especially popular.  Featuring tasty Japanese food, bars with dim lighting, and plenty of sex appeal, this part of Japan holds particular appeal for adult visitors.

The Robot Restaurant is a combination of:

  • Robots
  • Dancers
  • Music
  • Flashy illumination
  • Catch music

Watch the robots move to the music while you savor a meal, and you’ll enjoy a 90-minute show. The tasty eats and cool treats are brought directly to your table. Just be sure to make a reservation before the start of a robot performance to guarantee you have a seat for this entertainment extravaganza.

It is also worth noting Japan’s robot restaurants typically have a dress code that bars the donning of sunglasses and costumes such as wigs, cosplay outfits, etc. 

Some such restaurants also bar customers from taking professional photographs, meaning you’ll have to leave that fancy camera in your hotel room. However, you are perfectly free to take snapshots with your smartphone.

5. Hike the Kumano Kodo Trail

Japan is a crowded island nation simply because it is small and rife with fun things to do. You can escape the crowds by hiking trails like the Kumano Kodo Trail. This picturesque outdoor getaway exposes you to nature’s beauty, fresh air, and animals for arguably unparalleled animal tourism.

Segue to the walking trails after a couple of days in Japan’s urban centers, and you’ll relish the much-needed reprieve from the fast pace of the major cities. Though few know it, the Kumano Kodo Trail is the sister trail of none other than the famous Camino de Santiago trail in Spain.

The Kumano Kodo trail takes you through small villages and mountains, providing access to a traditional Japanese inn in the form of tranquil guesthouses set amidst nature’s splendor. Read through the tourist reviews of the Kumano Kodo trail, and you’ll find the vast majority heap on the praise for the solitude of the experience.

Most hikers who take to the Kumano Kodo find less than 20 people walking the trail throughout the experience. In other words, those seeking refuge away from the masses within a natural setting will love hiking the Kumano Kodo.

Visit Japan for the Kumano Kodo trail, and you’ll spot at least a couple of locals during the hike, most of whom are cordial and willing to engage in conversation about the trail and surrounding spaces. Spark up a conversation, and you’ll learn all about Japan’s stunning countryside and wild animals.

Overall, the Kumano Kodo hiking trail will likely take two days. However, completing the trail will likely take a week if you stretch out your hike by staying at guesthouses.

If you aren’t an avid hiker or skittish about spending several days on a hiking trail, don’t fret.  GetYourGuide has several tours that will set you up with a local who will make planning an enjoyable hiking itinerary while visiting Japan easy. 

Such an itinerary is especially important for solo female travelers concerned about their safety and well-being when taking in the natural beauty of Japan’s rural areas.

6. Izakaya Hopping

Visiting Japan is much more rewarding when you sample the top local fare.  Japan is chock-full of izakayas, meaning small bars with tasty food and refreshing beverages.

Chow down from a small plate at an izakaya, and you’ll likely be surrounded by a dozen people or less.  This intimate atmosphere makes it easy to engage in conversation, learn about the locals, and enjoy your meal without considerable noise pollution.

Visit Japan, hop from one izakaya to another, taste many dishes and unique local beverages, and mingle with the native Japanese. You’ll learn a lot while having a great time. 

Though nearly all of Japan has izakayas, Osaka is especially famous for its elite izakayas. Shinesaki and the streets near Dotonbori are ground zero for izakaya hopping.

Every tourist in Japan should understand that izakayas require visitors to pay a cover fee that differs by site. Generally, you can expect to pay around 300 yen for admission to an izakaya.  This charge covers the cost of a seat in the izakaya and a diminutive dish.

If you don’t want to venture out to izakayas by your lonesome, search the web for izakaya tours, and you’ll find no shortage of opportunities to enjoy the izakaya experience with other tourists and locals.

A word to the wise: ask a local to help you order from izakaya menus, as most are written in Japanese instead of English, and you’ll make the most of your trip to Japan.

7. Take a Japanese Cooking Class

Chances are you’ve seen Japan’s famous conveyor belt sushi restaurants online or in a Japan travel guide.  Have you ever thought about rolling your own sushi? Maybe you’ve got a passion for ramen.

Take a brief Japanese cooking class during your stay in this island nation, and you’ll learn how to make the local fare quickly. Japanese cuisine tutorials by local chefs provide an informative look at the secrets behind the tasty local delights.

Take one or two cooking classes during your stay, and you’ll develop a deeper appreciation for the country’s food as well as its culture. For example, Japanese chefs are eager to teach visitors the nuances of making ramen from scratch and rolling sushi.

Sushi fans are advised to gravitate toward the Tsukiji Fish Market & Making, featuring some of Tokyo’s top local chefs who provide sushi-making instruction. Kyoto’s cooking classes are revered for instructing locals to create visually striking sushi rolls that look just as good as they taste.

Visit Japan, venture out to Osaka for cooking classes, and you’ll find several local chefs willing to teach you how to make several types of ramen from scratch. You can also learn how to cook Okonomiyaki, meaning Japanese pizza, along with a couple of side dishes while in Tokyo, the capital city of Japan.

8. Visit the Nintendo Store

A trip to Japan is incomplete until you visit the country’s famous Nintendo Store, which is known as Nintendo Tokyo. Though scaling Mount Fuji and taking advantage of the country’s ubiquitous free wifi is tempting, you owe it to yourself to break away for at least an hour or two to experience Japan’s video game heaven.

The Nintendo Store is perfectly positioned in Tokyo by the PARCO department store headquarters, featuring nearly two dozen shops, event spaces, and eateries.  Complete with anime-themed stores and even a Capcom Store, this gamer’s paradise has a little bit of everything for players of all ages.

The store has dedicated spaces for each hit game, ranging from Splatoon to Zelda, Mario, and many more options. Be sure to check out the Animal Crossing selection featuring the popular game’s themed watches, cookware, summer items, stationary, and so much more.

Pick up a Japanese sim card, Zelda Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, and Pokemon Snap, buy some Nintendo memorabilia, and you’ll feel like a kid again. You need this after a stressful day of train-hopping and taxicab-catching.

Bring your food to snack on as you explore Nintendo World, check out the game-maker’s latest offerings, and pick up a Nintendo-themed postcard to write home about your enjoyable trip.

9. Check out the Plum and Cherry Blossoms

Crack open a travel guide to Japan, and you’ll find mention of its famous cherry blossoms. Though you can find cherry blossoms in other parts of the world, such as Washington D.C., they do not compare to the beauty of those in this small island nation.

Cherry and plum blossoms bloom in gorgeous white and pink hues at winter’s end, signaling the start of spring that brings hope and happiness.  In particular, the Mito gardens have some of the nation’s most visually appealing plum and cherry blossoms.

The Kairaku-en garden, perhaps the nation’s most revered landscape-style gardens, is one of Japan’s best places to visit. Created way back in the early 1800s, the garden still stands as beautiful as ever.

The garden was created by a local domain lord of Mito Han, widely revered as a respected Tokugawa shogun clan member. The translation of kairaku-en is “garden enjoyed by people,” as it was one of the first gardens to be opened to the general public, including tourists.

Take a stroll through the 32 acres of gardens, and you’ll find several thousand plums and cherry blossom trees. More than 100 unique varieties of these stunning trees bloom from February’s end through the start of March, a period called Cherry blossom season. 

Time your trip for this part of the year, and you’ll have the opportunity to attend a plum and cherry blossom festival with local revelers and tourists alike.

Extend your Japan trip to the start of May, and you’ll be in town for Golden Week. Golden Week is a string of four national holidays that occur within a week at the start of spring.

Take a look at Japan money-saving tips; reserving lodging during this time of the year is costly. Those on a mid-range budget or tight budget are advised to plan accordingly.

10. Sample Japan’s Famous Sushi at a Fish Market

Sushi is one of Japan’s undeniable strengths.  Even if you aren’t a seafood lover, you’ll likely find at least one type of sushi that suits your fancy while visiting this small island nation.

Make your way through the many fish markets, and you’ll find a litany of sushi breakfast options, lunch choices, dinner selections, tuna auctions, vegan sushi rolls, traditional sushi, and so much more.  There are even specialized phone apps that help you navigate through Japan’s plethora of sushi offerings.

11. Check out the Nara Deer

Japan has more wildlife than most think. In particular the country’s Nara Deer is especially popular.  The ancient city of Nara is home to these beautiful animals.

Visit Kyoto, take the train to Nara, and snap some pictures of the Nara deer for posterity’s sake.  According to local lore, Nara deer are messengers sent directly from the gods to the people of Japan.

Talk to a minimum, observe these peaceful animals roam, bring your food from a family mart or convenience store, and trade it for a gracious deer bow. Your eyes are not deceiving you! The Nara deer really will bow if you offer them a treat.

You can also pick up some deer crackers from nearby stands if you don’t have food on your person while visiting Japan’s famous Nara deer.

Where to stay in Japan

Japan boasts its fair share of hotels, rated at 4 or 5 stars. Most hotels have fluent English staff, so don’t worry about scheduling a trip to Japan for fear of a language barrier.

The island nation’s accommodations are welcoming, comfortable, and memorable, especially if you appreciate the locals by learning at least a few Japanese words and phrases. Let’s look at the best accommodations for those visiting Japan without further ado.

How to Get Around in Japan

Most major cities on the island are busy, yet it is still possible to get around easily, especially if you print out this handy travel guide to Japan for your stay. Whether you are a pedestrian, a driver, or prefer public transportation, you’ll have plenty of options for getting from point A to point B and beyond. 

In particular, Japan’s rental car services are popular and affordable. If you are over 18 and have an international driver’s license, you can rent a car during your stay in Japan.  The average rental car in Japan typically costs about 10,000 yen each day.  This amount of yen converts to about USD 75. 

Many rental car pickup points are available near airports and throughout Japan’s cities. The Japan Rail Group offers a convenient Eki Rent-a-car system at most nationwide stations.  

If you don’t know how to drive or do not want to drive while in Japan, take advantage of the Shinkansen bullet train travel option that makes it easy to explore the island in its entirety during your trip to Japan. 

The Japan Rail Pass is also an option. Japan’s train station system connects visitors directly from the airport to downtown Tokyo and additional destinations in Kyushu, Shikoku, Honshu, and Hokkaido.

Travel Tips for Visiting Japan

If you are like most international travelers interested in an expedition to Japan, you’ve likely heard a little bit of good and also some negativity about this island nation. Print out this ultimate Japan travel guide, and you’ll find your stay on the island goes much smoother.

Though the natives are sometimes stereotyped as insulated and somewhat ethnocentric as they have a strong national identity, most Japanese are happy to welcome tourists. 

Smile, learn some Japanese words, be friendly with the locals, and abide by local customs; traveling throughout Japan is a rewarding experience. Here’s a quick look at some travel tips for Japan that will help you navigate the island efficiently and safely.

Get Travel Insurance Before Embarking on Your Journey 

Travel insurance application form

It is in your interest to purchase travel insurance before visiting Japan. We recommend finding the best possible policy using TravelInsurance.com, and if you are a backpacker or digital nomad, use SafetyWing for affordable coverage. The travel insurance policy you select should include a policy applicable to the following:

  • Medical care
  • Hotel cancellation
  • Lost luggage
  • Damage to belongings
  • Theft
  • Flight cancellations

If you don’t have insurance, there is no such thing as free cancellation, meaning saving money in the event of the unforeseen requires this essential form of protection.

Though theft and vandalism are rare in Japan, it is better to plan for the worst by securing travel insurance and hoping for the best. Though insurance does not cover the cost of international transaction fees, it will safeguard the bulk of the financial investment you make in your Japan trip.

Travel insurance also provides medical care if you are injured or become ill while in the island nation. Traveling throughout Japan is relatively safe, yet there is always the chance of an accident or contracting a virus or other germs that cause illness. 

Obtain insurance, and you’ll be able to present proof of insurance to those at the hospital or clinic where care is provided, ensuring you’ll be treated by local doctors, nurses, and other professionals.

Most tourists to Japan are interested in outdoor activities such as skiing, scuba diving, hiking, mountain climbing, etc. If you plan outdoor expeditions during your trip to Japan, ensure your insurance includes coverage for accidents when engaging in such risky activities.

Finally, ensure the insurance policy includes evacuation coverage so that you are provided with safe evacuation to your home country.

Don’t forget to obtain proof of insurance. The plan you obtain should include hardcopy proof to present a physical document showing you are fully insured.

Take Full Advantage of Japan’s Rail Pass

The Japan Rail Pass is the most affordable and efficient means of seeing everything Japan has to offer.  Obtain the rail pass, and you won’t have to fuss over purchasing individual rail tickets.

You can reserve a seat on any Japanese Rail train for free during your Japan trip. The retail pass sets the stage for you to engage in unlimited travel across all the rail train lines, except for the Nozomi Super Express.

A combination of rail passes is available based on the time spent in the island nation and the destinations for visitation. For example, there are single-week standard passes for extended journeys.

Regional passes for specific island areas such as Kyushu are also available. However, if you want to see most of the island nation, obtaining the standard pass for travel extending from one to three weeks is in your interest. Standard passes for both first-class green cars and coach-class cars are available.

Order your standard pass or JR Pass from home before embarking on your journey throughout Japan, and you’ll be provided with a voucher, sometimes referred to as an Exchange Order, after the standard or JR pass is purchased. The voucher will be exchanged for the actual pass after you arrive in the island nation.

There is a three-month window to use the Exchange Order for the pass after purchase. After arrival, exchange the voucher for the pass at one of the 40+ Japan Rail Pass train stations, and you’ll segue into adventure mode without delay.

As detailed above, foreign visitors qualify for a specialized regional pass and the regular Japan Rail Pass. Such regular coach class rail passes are optimal for traveling throughout western and eastern Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Honshu. 

Before your trip to Japan, you can obtain a regional pass from vendors that provide standard rail passes for visitors. However, you’ll have to provide your passport for review to prove you qualify for temporary visitor status in Japan.

Those not qualifying for the Japan Rail Pass can also use a 5-day pass for rail travel on the Seishun 18. This travel option is optimal for adventures that reveal the best of Japan’s incredible country beauty.

Regional tickets are also available for those who visit to sightsee. For example, the Hakone Free Pass, which is provided through Odakyu rail, provides transportation through Hakone and other big cities.

Traveling Across Japan? Consider a Bus

Japan has a convenient bus system that runs on schedule with few exceptions. Check out Japan travel guides; riding the bus is ranked high on the list of money-saving tips. Those on a mid-range budget will be happy to learn buses are not as comfortable as rental cars, taxis, and some trains, yet they are efficient and affordable.

Check out the bus routes in the land of the rising sun for yourself, and you’ll find they are used extensively throughout most of the island nation. Though a bus won’t take you to the top of Mount Fuji, it will transport you nearly everywhere else during your trip to Japan.

The best part is getting a seat on a bus costs significantly less than a taxi, rental car, or even a train, helping you save money as you visit cat cafes, ancient temples, and more throughout this fascinating country.

Add in the fact that Japan’s buses reach parts of the country, including many temples not served by the rail system, and there is even more reason to hop on a bus to check out everything Japan has to offer. Some Japanese buses extend to remote parts of the country, including an ancient pilgrimage route far from where taxicabs and train lines venture.

In particular, the country’s long-distance bus lines between its major cities, including Kyoto and Tokyo, are especially popular. Though most Japanese buses are fairly plain in terms of comfort, amenities, and internal aesthetics, some are surprisingly luxurious, featuring reclining seats and salons.

The most luxurious buses are used for overnight expeditions throughout the island nation.  However, if you plan on taking a long-distance bus during your trip to Japan, you will likely need to purchase your seat well in advance.

Reserving an overnight bus far in advance is especially important for overnight trips. Make your reservations to travel to Japan as soon as possible, especially if you plan on traveling during the busy times of the travel season or taking popular routes. You’ll rest easy knowing a seat will be saved for you when exploring Japan.

Domestic Ferries are Also an Option

Japan’s domestic ferries provide efficient access to the nearby islands.  Some islands, such as the Naoshima within the island-laden Seto Inland Sea, are only reachable through ferries. Though some flights reach Japan’s islands, they are often inferior to ferries in cost and luxury.

Give a ferry ride a chance, and you’ll agree it is surprisingly relaxing.  In particular, overnight ferry rides between Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu from north to south, respectively, are revered by locals and tourists alike. Ferries also provide fairly quick and efficient transportation to nearby islands of the Inland Sea.

It must be noted that Japan’s ferry schedules listed on the internet and in other sources are not set in stone. The country’s ferry schedules are subject to changes, especially by season.

Furthermore, if harsh weather or inclement weather is on the horizon, ferry schedules also have the potential to change. Be sure to check with the local tourist office for information about the ticket prices and ferry ride schedules for the latest accurate details.

Japan’s long-distance ferries have tickets in three distinct classes: first, second, and special. The most affordable option is a second-class ticket without a bed. This option provides ferry-goers a common space and a tatami mat for comfort.

There is also the option of a second-class ticket that includes a bed. First-class tickets typically cost two times as much as second-class tickets. The special class ferry ticket is generally two to three times the cost of a second class ticket.

You can bring your automobile ono a ferry, though the car’s size ultimately shapes the cost of transporting it by boat.  Bicyclists are also allowed to bring their bikes onto the majority of Japanese ferries.

In general, ferries charge about 100 Japanese yen per hour of travel, when a bike is on board. For example, consider a future trip to Japan in which you take a 6-hour ferry ride with a bike. Transporting that bike through water will cost 600 yen, about $5.

Use Japan’s Bullet Train

Utsunomiya Train Station

Japan is famous for many things, including its highly efficient bullet train. The bullet train is known as the Shinkansen, meaning new main line, and has a space shuttle-style nose for impeccable aerodynamics. This uniquely shaped train nose segues into the train travel station like a spaceship entering a space station.

Hop on the futuristic bullet trains, and you’ll zip across the land, making your way to tourist-friendly destinations in comfort and style for ultimate Japan travel. The train travel network connects island major cities with the mainland, making it easy to take in the highlights of the entire country in surprisingly little time.

The best part is that Japan’s bullet train travels nearly 200 miles per hour and is incredibly quiet. The comfy and clean seats, highlighted by retro stylistic elements, provide a bit of a blast from the past while you traverse Japan in seemingly futuristic bullet trains.

Japan’s bullet train consists of an expansive network of high-speed rail lines that connect Tokyo with regional highlights. Owned by the Japan Railway Construction, Transport, and Tech group, the bullet train is operated by nearly half a dozen companies that comprise the Japan Railways Group.

The bullet train has transported 10 billion passengers, including billions of tourists, across its half-century. The train travels between 150 and 200 miles per hour, yet it has not caused a single passenger injury in this period.
