10 Day Japan Itinerary

The Boutique Adventurer

Foreign travellers can gain access to Japan for 90 days without a visa, as long as they have their return ticket booked.

How to get there: if possible fly into Haneda rather than Narita airport at the start of your trip to Japan.

Day 1

Spend the Day in Shibuya and Ginza

Be prepared for everything to catch your attention; the bright billboards, chatty people, and flashing lights.

Day 2

Fish Market and Harajuku

The fish market apparently has the best seafood during breakfast. After this, you can explore all the shops and culture in Harajuku.

Day 3

Mount Fuji

Head outside of Tokyo for a day or hiking and enjoy time outdoors. Mount Fuji is a sight to behold up close.
