Flights – Getting Around in the Land of the Rising Sun

With a rich and varied cultural history, bustling cities, a wide range of the latest technology, delicious cuisine and more quirky advertising characters than you can shake a stick at, Japan remains a popular tourist destination for Western holidaymakers.

Short breaks in Japan can be tailored in order to experience all aspects of the countries’ culture – be it taking a trip to one of the many traditional Shinto temples or taking a ride on the world famous high-speed bullet trains.

With a wide range of accommodation available to suit all tastes, from minimalist single-person sleeping capsules to modern and chic hotels located in the very centre of bustling city environments.

Flights to Japan can vary in price depending on the length of your stay and the destination you fly to. Flights to major cities, including Tokyo and Osaka are available from most major UK airports – usually including at least one stop in another European city.

Air travel in Japan is split into three classifications, based on the air traffic they are able to deal with. There are five International Airports – two of which are built on artificial islands in the bays, with road and rail connections to the mainland – and many smaller airports and airfields dotted around the country’s islands.

If you are looking to travel and see a bit more of Japan, cheap flights are available to domestic destinations within the country. If you’d rather take the technological route, hop on board and take a trip on one of the many high-speed railway networks that connect the islands.

It’s best to set yourself a budget when it comes to travelling around the country. If you’re looking to experience the rail system, it’s best to purchase a pre-paid top-up card, similar to the Oyster cards used on London’s transport system.

There are also opportunities to travel cross-country and travel by ferry from several major ports along the coast.

If you’re looking at touring Asia, some Japanese ports also cater for international ferry services to surrounding countries – such as China, Russia and South Korea.
