FEATURES
HEALTH
Citizens of EU countries need a passport to enter Japan. The passport must still be valid for the duration of the trip. A visa is required.
The official currency in Japan is the yen. One euro is equivalent to about 130 yen (as of 03.01.22). Cash is still the most common form of payment. However, credit cards are also accepted in large cities and shops.
Japanese cuisine is considered one of the healthiest and lowest-fat cuisines in the world. In the traditional way, strong oils and spices are usually avoided and instead the individual taste of the respective food is used. Of course, white rice is a must in most meals here.
The official language in Japan is Japanese. A special feature of the language is its complicated writing system, which is a mixture of Chinese characters (kanji) and the syllabaries hiragana and katakana. English is rarely spoken.
Religion
The two main religions of Japan are Shinto and Buddhism. Often most Japanese (80%) practice both at the same time.
There are no mandatory vaccinations for a journey to Japan.
Still, Japan's big cities have an air pollution problem, so it's recommended to check an app for ai rpollution daily or to ckeck with your guide to see if you should wear a mask.
