Japan Travel Insurance

When planning a trip to East Asia, Japan is one of the top destinations that comes to mind, and why not! The island is a wonderful blend of traditional and modern that will give you an experience of a lifetime. 

 General Travel Information

  • Languages: Japanese is the official language of Japan and in many big cities like Tokyo, people also speak English. Most signs are written in Japanese and sometimes Roman translation is also provided.
  • Capital: Tokyo is the capital of Japan and has the most varied entertainment and dining options.
  • Currency: Japanese yen
  • Population: Japan has a population of 126.8 million as of 2019.
  • Weather: Japan temperatures vary as per the season. Summer is the hottest month with a maximum temperature of 35 degrees Celsius, and in winter, the temperature can fall to lower than 5 degrees Celsius.
  • Best time to visit: Japan has many activities that you can enjoy the year round, but spring is the best time to visit since the weather is pleasant. And, it is the cherry blossom season so you can enjoy the beauty of the wonderful gardens of Japan. 

 

Things to Do in Japan

  • Renowned for its beautiful gardens, visit Japan during the cherry blossom season, which is spring, to enjoy nature at its best.

  • Sushi, tempera, rice and curry, tofu, and ramen are some of the authentic Japanese delicacies that you can enjoy in Japan.

  • You can visit the famous Disneyland or Universal Studios when in this country, or even take a trip to Nikko Edomura, which is an amusement park unique to Japan.

     

Visa Requirements

Residents of 66 countries do not need a visa or have a visa on arrival for visiting Japan on a holiday, but India is not one of them, so Indian nationals need a tourist visa for a trip to Japan. Some documents that you need for a tourist visa in Japan:

  • A passport that is valid for at least 6 months

  • Filled and signed visa application

  • Return flight tickets

  • A cover letter stating the purpose and duration of your stay

  • Income Tax Returns of the past 2 years

  • If you are a working professional, a certificate from employer or NOC (No Objection Certificate) for leave sanctioned.

     

Things to Remember While visiting Japan

  • Get a rail pass - If you're planning to visit more than one city, getting a rail pass is cheaper and convenient.

  • Learn Japanese phrases - If you don't speak Japanese, you are going to have a hard time, since most Japanese don't speak English. So, learning some common Japanese phrases can be useful.

  • Carry a power converter - The voltage in Japan is low, and hence a power converter will come in handy. The plug type is A and B; the same as in North America.

     

Travel Insurance Requirements

While a Japan travel insurance is not required to enter the country, it is recommended. Japan is considered a safe country, but theft, loss of valuables, or a medical emergency can still happen, and taking a travel insurance is always good. Always go for a comprehensive travel insurance plan when going on an international trip.
