Best things to do and see in Japan

Japan throws some pretty massive festivals every year, showcasing its unique customs and heritage. New Year is taken a lot more seriously in Japan than in the UK. It takes place over a few weeks approaching 1 January, and is one of the longest and largest festivals in Japan, where it’s known as Shogatsu. It involves far more than just bringing in the New Year. Traditional foods are eaten during this time, with the focus on family time. Things immediately get a bit bizarre after that, so if you’re deciding on when to book flights to Japan, why not time it so you can attend Setsuban, the annual bean-throwing festival. Stages are set up in towns and cities around the country where celebrities throw their beans, while at home, families hold the mame-maki ceremony, where they throw soybeans to ward off evil spirits. For something spectacularly colourful, and also steeped in ancient Japanese tradition, Hamani, the Cherry Blossom Festival occurs at different times of the year in different parts of the country, any time between March and May, with cherry blossoms appearing first in the south. To celebrate the season, Japanese people hold picnics, tea ceremonies and sake parties underneath the trees.

Japan is well-known for its food, with sushi one of its most successful culinary exports. But that just scratches the surface of a fascinating culinary tradition that often uses ingredients that we would consider extremely exotic. That said, the national dish of Japan will probably surprise you – it’s simple curry and rice, only prepared a bit differently to what we’re used to. Japanese curry rice is made by cooking all the ingredients together so that it reduces to a thick, sticky texture. Traditional Japanese cuisine is based on the country’s age-old “rule of five”. This dictates using five colours (green, yellow, white, black and red), five flavours (sweet, sour, spicy, bitter and salty) and five preparation methods (raw, steaming, grilling, frying and boiling). The challenge is to represent them across an entire menu and in each dish. Sushi doesn’t need any introduction, and the next most well-known Japanese dish is tempura, which is simply battered vegetables or seafood. Yakitori is a dish that puts pieces of every part of a chicken on a skewer. It’s been eaten in Japan since the mid-1600s. An even older delicacy, thought to have been eaten as far back as prehistoric times, are the traditional tsukemono pickles. They’re actually made from a range of ingredients, including eggplant, plum, and daikon radish.

If you’re booking Japan flight deals and planning your itinerary, there are some must-see highlights to put at the top of your list. First of these is Mount Fiji, so high that you can see it all the way from Tokyo. You can visit it by heading to Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. The Imperial Palace in Tokyo is another iconic Japanese hallmark, which contains the picturesque East Higashi-Gyoen Garden. Here you can also watch the Kabuki dance performances. Kyoto is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Japan. It’s an ancient city, untouched by WWII, making it a treasure trove of Japanese history. Here you’ll find the gold leaf-clad Golden Pavilion, built in the 14th century. To delve even further back into Japan’s cultural history, visit Nara, with its Seven Great Temples and massive statue of Buddha, cast in bronze in 749 CE.

Japan welcomes British citizens without needing a visa. Under this waiver you can stay in the country for up to 90 days. When you arrive at the airport, keep your return ticket handy, as you may need it when you present your passport to show that you aren’t intending to overstay the allowed time period. Your passport doesn’t need to be valid for any longer than the duration of your stay.
