Directions & Map


Japan Visa

Every foreign visitor entering Japan must have a valid passport. Visitors from countries without visa exempt agreements with Japan should apply to a Japanese consular office or diplomatic mission in their home country. Please be informed that it is the embassy of Japan in your country that makes a decision on issuing a visa. Usually the procedure takes considerably long, so you need to begin the procedure as soon as possible. Read carefully the Japanese visa guide provided by the ministry of foreign affairs.

Getting Around in Tokyo

Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. The city's history can be appreciated in districts such as Asakusa and in many excellent museums, historic temples and gardens. Contrary to common perception, Tokyo also offers a number of attractive green spaces in the city center and within relatively short train rides at its outskirts.
