If you’re a gadget guru or just have a sweet spot for new technology, Japan is the place for you. Grab your latest invention and book airline tickets to Japan for a tour of high-tech heaven. After all, Japan is the country that invented economy cars, computers, gadgets, and gaming consoles. But while you’re playing with your new portable gaming station on your Japan flight take a moment to consider all the non-tech contributions that Japan has made. This is the country that brought us the bonsai, cherry blossoms, samurais and lavish garden designs. Aside from the wild inventions and cultural contributions that come from Japan, the Japanese are an enchanting people with a love for culture. If you’re planning a vacation to Japan, keep in mind that approximately 300,000 “matsuri” (festivals) are held every year.
Japan is a mountainous archipelago made up of four major islands and more than 4,000 smaller ones, though most of the population lives in cities. Despite its densely populated cities, Japan is easy to navigate and tourists will have no problem finding their way around. Public transportation is a breeze and the people are friendly and helpful.
The flight to Japan from Canada has a duration of 13h 20m for direct service on Air Canada. One-stop and multi-stop flights may average flight times around 16h 30m to 19h 5m, with variations depending on the city of origin, stopovers, wait times, and arrival destination. Of course, some discount fares may offer low prices but travellers are advised to check the flight connections and total duration to make sure they truly are getting Japan flight deals that provide a reasonable flight time for the money.
Direct flights to Japan are available from two cities in Canada: Vancouver and Toronto. These flights both go into Tokyo, with other cities like Montreal, Edmonton, and Calgary offering one-stop flights to Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya. Flights are available from United, Air Canada, and ANA airlines. There are multi-stop flights available, and many other destination cities across Japan with routes to more than a dozen cities.
The newer and popular bullet trains have separate tracks, offering high-speed service and a smooth ride. However, these trains are quite expensive so they are more of an experience than a tool for daily travel. Regular trains are a much more affordable choice but will have much longer travel times. Flying is often the fastest way to get between some areas of this island country, and international travelers can save a lot on domestic travel by purchasing their tickets along with their international airfare. Buses are also readily available and buses and taxis are available in major cities.
Japan has a unique balance of history and modern urban culture, with sights like Kinkaku-Ji, Mount Fuji, and the bright lights of Tokyo all within the same borders. Zao Fox Village in northern Japan allows visitors to play with foxes and even hold babies. On the complete opposite end, guests can head to a futuristic dinner at the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo. Tokyo is even home to the MariCar race, allowing visitors to have a real-life Mario Kart experience. There are open-air hot springs for tourists to enjoy, and first-time visitors need to check out a sumo wrestling match while they are in Japan. Kishiki Market in Kyoto, known as the city’s kitchen, is home to some of the best fresh seafood and produce with plenty of delicacies available.
Japan requires all Canadian nationals flying into the country to present a valid passport to gain entry. The passport is only required to be valid for the duration of your stay, although those with later expiration dates will see fewer potential delays and issues. Tourist visas are not required for Canadian citizens staying less than 90 days, but business and student visas are required. Anyone overstaying their allotted time limit faces criminal charges, including potential fines, deportation, and barred from re-entry for future travel.
Japan’s climate varies with its latitude. The north has four distinct seasons while the south is subtropical. Okinawa averages a temperature of 21 C. The plum and cherry blossom trees bloom in March and April. The rainy season lasts from mid-June to mid-July. Except for Hokkaido and the mountains, it gets very hot and humid after a rainstorm. Typhoon season lasts from the end of August through September, but Japan generally only gets thunderstorms. Winter lasts from December to March and sees lots of snow with great mountain skiing.
