Japan is the country of the Rising Sun, of temples, Geishas, kimonos, anime and cherry blossoms, a place that every traveler should visit. Below you will find my travel guide to Japan with information, tips and details by city to make your next trip unforgettable. Let’s get started!

My trip to the Land of the Rising Sun has been the best trip of my life, it is one of the most incredible, beautiful, breathtaking and safe places I have ever known. I firmly believe it should be on every traveler’s list. Below, you will find the most important details about this country.

The first point of this travel guide to Japan. From my point of view, the ideal time to visit is during March and April. During those months there is good weather, little rain, but above all it is Hanami season.  Finally, I must say that it is one of the most beautiful natural spectacles in the world.

Traveling to the Land of the Rising Sun is quite an experience, but many people think it is expensive. So one of the most recurrent questions is to know how much it costs to travel to this beautiful country, thinking about that I created a detailed guide where you will find:


The richness of this country – and not only in economic terms, as it is the third largest economy in the world – is its diversity. History, culture, gastronomy, technology and shopping: Japan has something for everyone.

During the Edo period (1603-1868) it was an obligatory stop on the Kyoto-Tokyo trade and gentlemen’s route, but the end of this era and modernity put an end to its prosperity, because it ceased to be a walking route.

The torii are donated by merchants with their names or that of their businesses, so that Inari grants them bonanza. The route through these is more than 4 kilometers, so you should bring water to hydrate yourself.

Life on the island revolves around Miyajima (shrine island) which has at its entrance a huge torii, which has become an emblem for all of Japan. It is one of the most repeated images in tourist guides.

The particularity of the sanctuary is that it is built on the sea. When the water level is low, you can walk to the great torii and it is only from there that you can appreciate its immensity. When the tide is high, it seems to be floating: an effect without comparison.


To visit Japan is to be willing to embrace the meditative halo that surrounds the Land of the Rising Sun. In this diversity, the favorite destinations of international tourism stand out for their ability to welcome any type of visitor – and know how to cater to them. Here are some of the most sought-after cities:

In Japanese, Tokyo means “the capital of the East.”  Going to Japan without going to the capital is like visiting France without staying a few days in Paris: the experience is simply incomplete. Some say that Tokyo is never quite seen, being one of the most metropolitan, diverse and convulsive cities in all of Asia.

Kyoto is the capital of the Kansai region. At the beginning of the last millennium, it was the seat of the Imperial Court, as well as other official institutions that remained in place until the 19th century. It is easily accessible by train, and lights up in a pale pink glow during the months of March and April, when the cherry blossoms awaken.

Among the most representative tourist attractions is undoubtedly the Imperial Palace. However, the city also has millenary sanctuaries and castles that have resisted the passage of time, as if they were still in use. In the same way, it is recommended to visit the series of torii arches – Shinto ceremonial thresholds – lined in the center of Kyoto.

Cities of Japan

And it’s finally here! It seemed like it was never going to happen because we had bought our flights a century ago… but it came. Japan! What a wonderful country! And in this mega guide to Japan we only hope we can convey to you how much we already love this wonderful Asian country that has been our home for three weeks.

When we started planning our Japan tour, which lasted a total of 21 days (not counting flight days), we were clear about what we wanted to see in Japan and which areas we wanted to spend the most time in. I wish we could have planned a three-month trip to visit all the areas we had left to see, which were many, especially the northernmost and southernmost parts of the country. Here are the highlights we visited in Japan:

What happens if your camera or luggage is stolen? What happens if you get sick and have to do quarantine? What happens if you have to go to a hospital because of appendicitis or a sprained ankle? What if the airline loses your luggage and you are left without clothes? Who is going to pay for all this? I’m telling you: travel insurance
