This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. Nevertheless, with the help of the lonely planet guidebook to Japan, and Google Earth, I am on my way. However, that did mean The Rough Guide managed to cram in more pages into their edition within a similar thickness (more than 1,000 compared with Lonely Planet's 831). Every course is a gasp-inducing journey through Japanese ceramics and presentation in a tatami-floored room.

Come evening, stroll through lantern-lit streets lined with 17th-century traditional restaurants and teahouses in the Gion entertainment and geisha quarter. Explore a bamboo grove in Arashiyama, marvel at Shinto and Buddhist architecture in Kyoto, or relax in the hot springs of Noboribetsu Onsen; all with your trusted travel companion. You could arguably spend a lifetime sampling the country’s delights, but some towns and sights are staples – core ingredients to any great Japan trip. Winter in Japan's north peaks in January, and February is the perfect time for skiing and hiking across powdery snow in the wilds of Hokkaidō.

If a passport holder a country on the visa-waiver list, you won’t need a visa to travel to Japan if you’re staying for less than 90 days. That galaxy is Japan, where high-speed trains zip between cities at up to 320 kph (199 m/h) with extra-terrestrial accuracy and comfort. Detour: Visit a Nintendo-themed cafe, Pokémon-themed café or Tokyo Character Street if you're visiting Tokyo with kids.

Tomonoura inspired anime maestro Hayao Miyazaki to create Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea – get ready to be entranced by the green hills sheltering a port of bobbing white boats.I got lost doing one of the Tokyo walks and being able to point to where I wanted to go and have the address in Japanese would have been immensely helpful. Japan sparks all the senses with everything, from temple bells, capsule hotels and breezy cat islands to outdoor sculptures, pine-forest hot springs and umami flavors in world-class dining. Check out the Lonely Planet Tokyo guide or Kyoto guide for a comprehensive look at all these cities have to offer; or Lonely Planet Pocket Tokyo, a handy-sized guide focused on the can’t-miss sights for a quick trip. After the world's first Super Nintendo World opened in Osaka during the pandemic, the next big thing is Ghibli Park, a theme park based on the works of animation legend Hayao Miyazaki set to open in Aichi Prefecture on November 1. Lonely Planet covers must-see spots but also enables curious travellers to get off beaten paths to understand more of the culture of the places in which they find themselves.

Tokyo is a city forever reaching into the future, pushing the boundaries of what's possible on densely populated, earthquake-prone land, adding ever taller, sleeker structures. Discover Hokkaido’s ski slopes and snow festivals, explore Himeji-jo, and sample Japanese delicacies in Kyoto – all guided by local experts with fresh perspectives. Japan has a color-coded classification entry scheme for all countries, which will continue even after travel rules ease on October 11. While Japan has no official mask mandate in place, you’ll find that many businesses still require people to wear one indoors; you’ll also see people with a mask while on a bus, train or taxi, or in any sort of crowded indoor environment.What I liked most about it was instead of focusing on Tokyo and the other obvious destinations, reporter Ian Wright started in the capital and then made his way to the very end of the southern chain of the archipelago.
