Japan Placeholder

For a small country, the landscape and culture of Japan changes rapidly and severely. A diverse country, from the snow-capped northern lands to the sunny shores of Okinawa, anything that anyone could want to see can be seen in Japan. Rich is nature, culture, history, tradition and culinary treasures, Japan should be entered into with an open and inquisitive mind, and a hungry stomach!

Capital City: Tokyo

Language: Japanese. There will be some English spoken in larger cities, such as Tokyo and Kyoto, and English-speaking tourist should be able to get around well.

Currency: Japanese Yen (JPY). JPY is currently 110 for 1 USD, but Tokyo remains a very expensive city. Fortunately, there are plenty of inexpensive street food options that are delicious, as well as the option to purchase alcohol at Duty Free prior to arriving in the city. Through the rest of the country, cost is more moderate.

Power Adapter: In Japan the power sockets are of type A and B. The standard voltage is 100 V and the standard frequency is 50 / 60 Hz.

Crime & Safety: Japan is safe, sans the occasional pick-pocket at night on the Tokyo streets. Things can get dicier if you participate in the Tokyo sub-culture, but in general Tokyo is a safe city where you can travel without any concern for anything other than the sheer number of people. The rest of Japan can be traveled in without concern, and is incredibly safe.

Emergency Number: 110
