Japan has restored the visa-waiver system from October 11th, 2022. If your country is in the list of Exemption of Japan Visa like Australia, Canada, USA, UK and almost all European nations, you can visit Japan without applying for a visa in advance.

Japan has been a bucket list trip destination for many travelers. Its unique and lively culture of sumo, samurai, anime, and sushi draws discerning visitors from all over the world, especially families with teenagers as a birthday gift or graduation gift.
