Japan is a land full of Eastern surprises. It’s well known for Tokyo’s neon skyscrapers and shopping, but it’s also still home to so many ancient buildings and rich cultural experiences. It's a country made up of thousands of islands, so there are spectacular beaches and mountains too. The culture is truly unique, but Japanese people are incredibly respectful, helpful and welcoming to visitors. Even better, it’s easy to get around the country quickly, either on the famous bullet trains or by taking a tour.
Tokyo is often cited as the safest major city in the world, but note that Japan is prone to seismic activity like earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanos. Wherever you’re visiting, travel insurance to Japan is very important to cover yourself against any potential medical costs and other unexpected travel expenses.
If you are travelling exclusively to Japan, then select "Worldwide exc. USA, Canada & the Caribbean" under area of travel.
