This page is for people who are planning to come to Japan for a short stay [say around 8 days].

  • You should not need invitation letter from your relatives in Japan for such a short trip.
  • You should buy the special train pass which is a great value for money.
  • There is corresponding bus pass as well.
  • Please bring as much as packed food and ready-to-eat curries etc as possible.
  • Please avoid trip between Nov to Feb … its cold for Indians and also days are very short.
  • Reserve as many places as possible using internet
  • Involve few over night journeys so that hotel is taken care
  • Japan is generally very clean so even low rate hotels are not that bad for small stay
