Things To Do In Japan

Faq?

For the cherry blossom we recommend going early April. However Japan is a technological marvel and an ancient civilisation with tons on offer year round.

Remember to give a small courteous bow or nod of the head as a sign of respect. A little manners goes a long way.

The train system is sensational in Japan. It may be a bit tricky in a foreign language, but that's part of the fun!

A week is fine, but to get the most out of Japan we recommend 2 weeks. If you live closer to Japan and it's not a long haul flight then a shorter time period is fine.
