Visiting Japan

Japan has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world and draws more than 8 million foreign visitors every year. A complete visit to Japan is sure to include shopping in Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood or sightseeing in the Shinjuku skyscraper district. Outside of Tokyo, popular Japanese destinations include Kyoto, often called one of Japan’s most beautiful places, and Osaka, which is home to one of Japan’s most famous attractions, the Osaka Castle. Nearby, is spectacular Himeji Castle, one of 14 of Japan’s World Heritage sites. One of the most spectacular times to be in Japan is during the spring when millions of cherry blossom trees are in full bloom all over the country.

 Visitors to Japan will also want to take part in some Japanese traditions, including a riding in a rickshaw, enjoying the onsen (Japanese hot springs), or visiting a Japanese tea house. Japanese cuisine includes dishes with fish, meat, vegetables, tofu and, of course, rice and/or noodles. There are many Japanese traditions that center around dining and travelers should be respectful of those. You will want to ask for help if you are unsure what to do.

Japanese-speaking Countries

A majority of Japanese-speaking people live in Japan, but Japanese is also the official language of the Republic of Palau, one of the world’s youngest and smallest states (and where the taping of the tenth season of the American reality television show, Survivor, was located!). Learning the Japanese language is useful in today’s global economy. After 2011’s devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, there has been an increased need for and desire among non-natives to learn the Japanese language.

Here are some of the basic Japanese phrases that you will use often:

  • Ikura desu ka? (How much does it cost?)
  • Benjo wa doko desu ka? (Where is the bathroom?)
  • Yoi ichinichi o! (Have a nice day!)
