A snow festival in Toyama was the first temptation to go to Japan. I added Tokyo to the destination, making it a 10-day trip. On the last day, I realised that 10 days are just not enough to absorb this culturally-rich, yet supremely advanced nation with its 47 prefectures (administrative areas). Precision is the word that comes to mind right when one thinks of Japan, and so it was, right from my ANA (All Nippon Airways) flight that left on time, serving crisp rice crackers as a welcome snack and amazing Japanese dinner (my choice of meal) to every single experience in Japan.
Once you land in Tokyo, the Narita Express is a great way to reach the city centre. It takes about an hour to reach the heart of Tokyo. Before travelling to Japan, it is best to buy a Japan Rail Pass in India and choose the number of days you would like it for, depending on your stay.
