Two weeks in Japan

Understand

Two weeks in Japan

Prepare

  • Get a JR pass before you go.

To get it, you need your passport number, but the passport doesn't have to be physically present - useful if you're meeting up with people in Japan, as you can get theirs too. They only work for people who have a temporary visitor's visa - full visas and Japanese citizens are basically excluded (although check the conditions yourself as there are a couple of exceptions). You have to purchase it outside the country, and then obtain the actual pass upon your arrival in Japan.

It allows free travel on the Shinkansen or "new trunk lines" (super express trains - regular, on time and ridiculously fast), and is basically the price of a standard return ticket to Kyoto, so you start saving money pretty quickly. Not all trains in Japan are owned by JR, but JR offers the only nationwide rail network, and its lines run parallel (or at least close) to private railway lines in many cases.

Get in

Japan has three main international airports: Narita (outside Tokyo), Kansai (outside Osaka), and Chubu Centrair (outside Nagoya). Most other major cities, including Sapporo, Sendai, Niigata, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, and Nagasaki, have direct air service to the largest airports in East Asia (Seoul is a convenient connecting point to these cities), but not to the Americas or Europe.

Most travellers arrive in Japan by air, but it is also possible to arrive by boat. The fastest boat to Japan is the hydrofoil from Busan to Fukuoka. There is also overnight ferry service on several international routes: Osaka-Shanghai, Kobe-Tianjin, Shimonoseki-Qingdao, Shimonoseki-Busan, and Nagoya-Okinawa-Taipei. Ferry service is also available from the Japan Sea coast to the Russian Far East.

Go/Walk/Drive/...

  • Go to Kyoto. It's full of temples. Consider also going to Nara, which is nearby and full of temples too.
  • Go to Tokyo, because you'll kick yourself if you don't. A great day trip from Tokyo is Nikko.
  • Go to Hiroshima. The Peace Park and museum are worth the visit alone, but the city has other attractions and is also close to Miyajima.

Stay safe

Japan is a pretty safe destination for tourists. There are low levels of crime and you are unlikely to see many police cars during a two week stay. You should not need specific vaccinations before leaving your home, but make sure you have full travel insurance as medical care can be expensive.
