Japan: Traveling for the First Time

Guide on traveling to Japan for the first time

If you are looking for first time Japan itinerary, planning on how to prepare for a trip to Japan and looking for requirements and stuff to know before traveling to Japan - you are on the right page!

Visa Requirements:
The country has still been strict when it comes for foreign tourists.  But not stricter than before.  As long as you prove that you have true intentions of just touring around the area (without job seeking activities in mind), plus you have good documents regarding your financial status, then you have higher chances of getting an approved visa.

Luckily with my previous applications I was granted: 2012: single entry, 2014: 3-year multiple entry with 15 days duration and 2017: 5-year multiple entry with 30 days duration.

Spring Inspiration

Spring equinox on mid March signals the start when spring weather can be enjoyed by most of the East Asian countries.

South Korea
In Seoul, most of the parks will amaze you with the sakura bloom. In the South, Jinhae is one of the popular sites among tourists if coming from Busan.  Suggested to head off to these cities by first week or mid-month of April. In Gyeonggi-do, enjoy tulip festival in Everland.
