Along with its beautiful palaces, Japan is known for its beautiful pink cherry blossom trees. Japan’s cherry blossoms are known as ‘Sakura’ and are quite a big deal there. They even have weather predictions for the cherry blossoms and hold numerous festivals when they bloom.

Returning home from Japan without witnessing the beautiful cherry blossoms would be a shame. You can enjoy and marvel at the cherry blossoms in Spring between March and May.

Be respectful on public transport.

Japan has some rules and etiquette when they travel on public transport. Many Japanese people commute to work or school every day, so, they want to make their travel as comfortable as possible. People don’t make noise and try to remain quiet when traveling on a train so that no one is disturbed.

Many foreigners might even be surprised by how quiet it is inside the train, but it is a necessary rule to follow. You will find that people don’t even talk to each other when traveling on trains. Instead, everyone is occupied with their phones, listening to music, or reading a book.

Find convenience stores near you.

Convenience stores or ‘konbini’ are quite important when visiting Japan as you can find many necessary supplies there. Japanese convenience stores are not as convenience stores elsewhere. Konbinis are multi-functional, accessible, and open 24/7.

Along with finding food and drinks, you can pick up packages, get Wi-Fi, and use an ATM at the konbini. An ATM in a konbini also has the advantage over Japanese banks as most of them accept foreign cards instead of the banks.

Konbinis are also highly accessible as you will always find at least one in every block, which is perfect for you if you have a midnight craving for a snack.


Now that you have some information about Japan go on your highly anticipated trip. While these tips are to give you an idea about Japan’s culture and traditions, don’t forget to relax and have fun on your trip while making the best of it.

Japan’s beautiful architecture and delicious food will leave you in awe. You won’t be disappointed and will want to come back to Japan.
