Tourist visa requirements
Your nationality will determine whether you need to get a visa and how long you can stay. Citizens from most countries can stay up to 3 months visa-free; US citizens are able to stay without a visa for up to 90 days. Japanese immigration requires your passport to remain valid during the period of stay.
Want to soak up the true culture of Japan, how about working there! If you’re a US national and between the ages of 18 and 30 you can apply for a working visa, which allows you to stay for up to one year or three years.
