  • 9 Japan Theme Parks To Add To Your Bucket List

    The thrill and fun of a ride in a theme park brings joy to kids and adult alike. If you are traveling with friends or family, set aside a day where you can spend time with them in an amusement park. Japan is home to world-class theme parks like Disneyland and Universal Studio. You might be surprised to know some medium-sized or vintage theme parks that exist in Japan and are still in operation now. Check out the list and add them in your itinerary for your next trip to Japan! (Disclaimer: Do note that currency conversion is accurate at the time of writing this article and prices mentioned are generally for adults)   1) Tokyo Disneyland Credit: Tokyo Disneyland Disneyland is no longer foreign in an avid travelers' book. I am sure it is one of the places to visit in your bucketlist. Take your time to stroll in the 7 different theme lands there and enjoy the colorful, vibrant park. Most of the rides in Tokyo Disneyland are kid-friendly! You can even bring your belongings up the roller coaster.If you stay up till night, you may enjoy the night parade and also the lighting up of Cinderella's castle.FASTPASS attraction ticket is available for those who dread the long queue. All you need to do is head to the rides with the FASTPASS machine and scan your admission ticket. You will be given an allocated time to enter the rides as reflected on the time window.I recommend going during the weekdays as it is less crowded to compare to the weekend or even a public holiday.Halal food: There isn't any halal restaurant in Disneyland. Therefore, you should pack a few snacks which will last you throughout the day.Prayer room: Head to Main Street House situated near the entrance. You may approach any one of the staff members there and they will show you the allocated Muslim praying corner. Do remember to bring your own prayer mats, prayerwear and Qibla compass as those are not provided.Admission Ticket: ¥7,400 (SGD94) for adultAddress: 1-1 Maihama, Urayasu, Chiba 279-0031, JapanAccess: Alight at Maihama Station via JR Keiyo Line / Musashino Line, 6 minutes walking distance to from the station.   2) Tokyo DisneySea Credit: Tokyo DisneySea Believe it or not, DisneySea is one of a kind which you cannot find in any other part of the world. What makes it so unique is that it is an "Ocean" themed park inspired by the myths and legends of the sea. DisneySea is suitable for all ages, but personally, I feel that it caters more to adult audiences as some of the rides are much intense to compare to the ones in Disneyland. Similar to Disneyland, DisneySea consists of 7 different theme lands.If you want to experience an adrenaline rush, ride on Tower of Terror. This ride features a vertical drop in a haunted mansion. My favorite ride in this park will be Journey to The Center of The Earth. This ride will keep you wanting more and don't say that I did not warn you about the dramatic climax.If you plan to visit both Disneyland and DisneySea, consider getting the 2-day passport and make full use of it. It is available for ¥13,200 (SGD167), which is $20 cheaper than getting a single separate ticket.Halal food: Similar to Disneyland, there isn't any halal restaurant in DisneySea. So, do bring your own food.Prayer room: Head to Guest Relation situated near the entrance. Request from the staff and they will provide you a praying space. Remember to bring your own praying mats and Qibla compass as those are not provided.Admission Ticket: ¥7,400 (SGD94) for adultAddress: 1-13 Maihama, Urayasu, Chiba 279-0031, JapanAccess: Alight at Maihama Station via JR Keiyo Line / Musashino Line. Hop on Disney Resort Line and ride for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can walk approximately 20 minutes from the station to reach the park.   3) Universal Studios Japan Credit: Universal Studios Japan One would flock to Universal Studios Japan because of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Even if you're not a die-hard Harry Potter fan, there is more to see and ride in this theme park which currently consists of 9 different themed zones. Universal Studios Japan caters to all age groups as it features plenty of kid-friendly and thrilling rides alike.Bid the crowd to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter by getting the timed-entrance ticket. Similar to the concept of FASTPASS in Disneyland, you will be allocated a timing to enter the zone. For someone who went to Universal Studios Japan on New Year's Day, I was allocated the 3:30PM time slot when I was already at the park at 7AM! (Yes! Universal Studios Japan operates for very  long hours due to the countdown party)Do take note that the price of the ticket varies depending on the dates. Please check the price calendar before purchasing the ticket if you're planning to buy it online (and I suggest that you do!)Halal food: There aren't any halal eateries in Universal Studio Japan but you can find 'Red Lobster', a seafood restaurant with a Muslim-friendly menu in Universal City Walk.Prayer room: Head to Guest Service situated near the entrance.

  • Start Planning For Your Trip To Japan This 2019 Because The Rugby World Cup Is About To Take The World By Storm

    If you thought FIFA was big, think again. The Rugby World Cup is coming in 2019 and you have to start preparing for it now. If travelling to Japan was not on your 2019 travel bucket list, it better go on immediately. Like any other World Cup, it is hosted once in 4 years, the first tournament being held in Australia and New Zealand in 1987, with New Zealand taking the championship. Since then, there have been seven others, the last one taking place in 2013 in England and Wales. If you were wondering where to travel in 2019, look no further. When and Where are the Games Held 2019 will see the Rugby World Cup dates in Japan, from the 20th of September to 2nd of November 2019. The games will be held in 12 cities across Japan, the grand final being played at Yokohoma Stadium. Going almost every day from the 20th of September, these are the cities to plan your travel around: Tokyo, Sapporo, YokohamaCity, Higashiosaka City, Toyota City, Kumagaya City, Kamaishi City, Fukuoka City, Kobe City, Shizuola Prefecture, Oita Prefecture and Kumamoto City. The Teams Playing The countries are divided into four groups: Pool A: Japan, Russia, Ireland, Scotland, Samoa, Pool B: New Zealand, South Africa, Italy, Africa 1, Repechage winner Pool C: France, Argentina, England, Tonga, USA, Pool D: Australia, Fiji, Wales, Georgia, Uruguay Picture Credit: Rugby World Cup How to Buy Tickets You can buy the Rugby World Cup 2019 tickets from September onwards – one year before the event – through the official website. The 19th of September to the 12th of November 2018 will see general global ballot applications, while individual tickets will be sold through the site in real time on a first-come first-serve basis from the 19th of January 2019. Refer to the ticket prices here. Tickets and Packages Picture Credit: Rugby World Cup Support Tours The Sports Travel and Hospitality has been exclusively appointed to run the Programme for Rugby World Cup 2019, Japan. An Official Supporter Tours Programme with Official Travel Agents in different countries has been allotted to avoid disappointment of being played out by fraudulent businesses. Whether you approach a travel agent or they approach you, do check the official website to make sure they are on the list. The Official Supporter Tours Programme book your tickets along with package tours, but you can buy the ticket by itself through the official website. Facilities Offered Different travel agents provide different facilities for their Rugby World Cup 2019 packages. Here are some ideas of what to expect: match tickets (depending on your length of stay, your package can cover multiple matches), accommodation, breakfast, travel card, Japan Government tax, administration and handling fees, some World Cup paraphernalia. Prices will vary based on the star rating of hotel provided and the cities the matches are held in. Don’t wait too long as packages are already selling out! It is the perfect opportunity to be traveling around Japan – during Rugby World Cup 2019. Muslim-friendly Facilities Since the packages provided are pretty basic, there aren’t any Muslim-particular facilities included. You are free to explore the cities at your own convenience, however, so, to make a Halal trip to Japan, be sure to look into what the city has to offer, as well as the Muslim population, halal food available, and places to pray.  Download the HalalTrip App if you haven’t already to help you locate all things Islamic for your Muslim-friendly tour to Japan! Leave a trail based on your own findings for others to follow in the future. With New Zealand having taken the cup thrice, Australia and South Africa twice, and England once in all the Rugby World Cups ever played, other countries will be fighting hard for the right to hold that trophy over their heads and claim the title. Will you be there to see it?...

  • One Week Itinerary for Solo Travel in Japan

    It has often been said and still it is true: Japan is one of the safest country for solo travelers, especially women. In fact, Japan might be the place most suited for a single female visitor. The Japanese are well known for their friendliness and polite character. The high level of politeness and safety makes Japan a very relaxing place when travelling solo. The variety of things to see and do make it especially good for the kind of travel that lets you see and do what interests you. Japan is as stunning as it is convenient: The public transportation system is modern, clean, and has English signage. A lot of hotels in Japan have single rooms available, which makes it cheaper for the single traveler. With or without companion, Japan is that fascinating country that will definitely offer you a wonderful time. Find Halal Restaurants in Japan Find Mosques and Prayer Places in Japan   Getting Around: Japan is famous for the Shinkansen bullet trains that you might already have heard of. The Japan Rail Pass (also called JR Pass) is a very cost effective rail pass for long distance train travel in Japan. The JR Pass can be used only by foreign tourists. The pass can be purchased online or through a travel agent outside of Japan. You will then receive a voucher that has to be exchanged to the actual pass inside Japan within three months of purchase. The pass will not pay off for urban travel alone. But if you cover some long distances within a relatively short time period, the pass is likely to save you some dollars. Furthermore, the pass provides convenience and flexibility in addition to saving money. Pass holders don’t need to buy tickets before riding trains and can spontaneously make trips at no extra cost. In general, the 7-day pass costs about the same as regular Shinkansen tickets for a round trip between Tokyo and Kyoto. It will most likely not pay off if you travel less than that. The Japan Rail Pass Calculator and the timetable website Hyperdia are good tools to compare regular ticket costs with the pass. You will find further information on the official website: http://www.japanrailpass.net/en/   Day 1: Landing in Tokyo Picture Credit: Adrian Chandler, www.flickr.com A good starting point for your trip is Tokyo. The city has so much to offer, you could spend months in it and still will have adventures and places to explore left. So, just let us give you some suggestions: For foreigners, it is very nice to stay in Asakusa. Asakusa is the center of Tokyo's shitamachi (literally "low city"), one of Tokyo's districts, where an atmosphere of the Tokyo of past decades endures. It’s popular with tourists and locals alike. Senso-ji, a very popular Buddhist temple, which was built in the 7th century, is the main attraction of the district. You can approach the temple through the Nakamise, a shopping street that has been providing temple visitors with a variety of traditional, local snacks and tourist souvenirs for centuries. It’s highly recommended to explore Asakusa on foot, but you should also consider a guided tour on a rickshaw. Asakusa is served by several public transport lines such as Ginza Line, Asakusa Line, Tsukuba Express and Tobu Railways.   Day 2: Roaming in Tokyo Tokyo Skytree Picture Credit: japan-magazine.jnto.go.jp Start your day with a visit to Tokyo Skytree. This television broadcasting tower one of the tallest buildings in the world, measuring 634 meters, and a landmark in Tokyo. There are two observation decks: At 350 meters, there is a restaurant, a café and shops behind large windows. The highest platform is at 450 meters altitude. An outer ramp surrounds this segment. Visitors can enjoy the view over one of the biggest cities in the world. You can purchase the entry tickets at the tower itself, 365 days a year. A shopping complex and an aquarium are located at the base of the tower. You will find the entrance to the Tokyo Skytree on the 4th floor of Tokyo Skytree Town, which comprises the range between Tokyo Skytree Station on the Tobu Isesaki Line, and Oshiage Station on the Asakusa Line, Keisei Oshiage Line and Hanzomon Line. Alternatively, you can walk across the Sumida River from Asakusa in about 20 minutes. Buses from Tokyo Station, Ueno Station, and Haneda Airport also reach Tokyo Skytree. You can refer to the image below and identify the different routes to get to Tokyo Skytree Town. Web: http://www.tokyo-skytree.jp/en/Address: 1 Chome-1-2 Oshiage, Sumida, Tokyo 131-0045 Picture Credit: www.tokyo-skytree.jp Shibuya Crossing Picture Credit: www.francescocattutophotographer.com After that, take a subway ride to the legendary Shibuya Crossing. The intersection is heavily decorated by neon advertisements and giant video screens. This iconic place gets flooded by pedestrians each time the crossing light turns green, making it a popular photo and movie filming spot. Some people recommend watching the crossing from an elevated position like Starbucks or the public Shibuya Mark City, but if you really want to soak in the atmosphere, you should stand down at ground level with all the other people around you. Shibuya is a well-known center for youth fashion and culture, and its streets are the origin of many of Japan's fashion and entertainment trends. To get there, take the Hachiko exit from Shibuya Station, which leads directly to the Shibuya Crossing. Cat Cafe MoCHA Picture Credit: digjapan.travel A short walk from Shibuya Crossing you will find one of the famous cat cafés, MoCHA. When you’re done with shopping and have had enough of the scramble at the busy Shibuya crossing, come here to relax, play with the kitties, and spend some healing time. Website: http://www.catmocha.jpAddress: 32-12 Udagawacho Assorti Shibuya 8F, Shibuya 150-0042 Shinjuku Picture Credit: fastjapan.com A short subway ride will take you to Shinjuku Station. Shinjuku is one of the 23 city wards of Tokyo, but the name commonly refers to just the large entertainment, business and shopping area around Shinjuku Station. There is a lot to see near JR Shinjuku Station, which is the busiest station in Japan with 3.5 million passengers per day. At the east exit are the entertainment districts of Kabuki-cho and Golden Gai, and there are plenty of shops and department stores. The business district on the opposite at west exit is dominated by office buildings and hotels next to the town hall, and here and there you can see publicly accessible art installations. The south exit leads to a broad terrace with skyscrapers surrounding, ideal for a pleasant walk. Here you’ll find the park Shinjuku-Gyoen, an oasis of peace in the heart of Tokyo. The various areas of Shinjuku each have their own charm, waiting for you to explore them. Shinjuku Gyoen Ramen Ouka Picture Credit: www.halalmedia.jp After exploring the Shinjuku neighbourhood you will most likely be hungry and weary. While finding a halal local restaurant in Shinjuku may not be one of the simplest things to do in Japan, the Shinjuku Gyoen Ramen Ouka is definitely worth a shot. This restaurant lets you indulge in the taste of Japan just like a local. Just like any other ramen restaurants, they serve you a hot bowl of Japanese goodness and warms you up during the winter. However, what's different about this ramen stall is that it is halal and is run by Muslims. Don't miss the chance to fit in like a local and slurp some delicious ramen.  Address: 1-11-7 Shinjuku | 1f, Shinjuku 160-0022, Tokyo Prefecture Day 3: Tokyo - Kyoto Golden Pavillion Picture Credit: handsonkyoto.com In the morning, take one of the convenient Shinkansen bullet trains to Kyoto. You will pass the Mt. Fuji, so better sit on the right-hand site of the train. Sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful landscape. When you arrive in Kyoto, there should be time to visit the Golden Pavillion, also called Kinkaku-ji. The golden pavilion, which is a Zen Buddhist temple, is the picture perfect symbol of the traditional Japan. Its top two floors are completely covered in gold. Reflected in the adjacent "Mirror Pond" with its small islands of stone and pine trees, the Kinkaku-ji Temple offers a breathtaking picture that you should not miss. It’s one of those iconic buildings you want to see in person. The temple garden will captivate you with its landscape and a charming teahouse in the middle. Kinkaku-ji can be reached from Kyoto Station by Kyoto City Bus number 101 or 205. Website: http://www.shokoku-ji.jp/Address: 1 Kinkakuji-chō, Kita-ku, Kyoto Manga Museum Picture Credit: www.kanpai-japan.com Close to the subway station Karasuma-Oike, you will find the Manga Museum. This is the first museum in Japan that is all about mangas. It offers an impressive selection of exhibits, encompassing everything from 19th-century Japanese journals and books to popular contemporary works from Japan and abroad. The museum owns around 200,000 manga and manga-related exhibits. Special exhibitions also take place here. Furthermore, the museum serves as a library. Of course, there is also a museum shop and a café. Website: http://www.kyotomm.jp/english/Address: Karasuma-Oike, Nakagyō-ku, Kyoto 604-0846   Day 4: Enjoying Kyoto Fushimi Inari Shrine Picture Credit: thetruejapan.com When in Kyoto, you must not miss the infamous Fushimi Inari Shrine. Fushimi Inari is an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. It is famous for its thousands of gates, the torii, which line the path behind its main buildings. The trails lead into the forest of the sacred Mount Inari, which stands at 233 meters. Fushimi Inari is the most important of several thousands of shrines dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice cultivation, fertility – and foxes. Foxes are believed to be Inari's messengers, resulting in many fox statues across the shrine grounds. The hike to the summit of the mountain and back takes about 2-3 hours, however, visitors are free to walk just as far as they wish before turning back. Along the path, you will see numerous smaller shrines with piles of mini torii gates that were donated by visitors with minor funds. Along the way, there are also a few eateries that offer local dishes such as Inari Sushi and Kitsune Udon ("Fox Udon"), both containing fried tofu, thought to be a favored food of foxes. Just be warned: Fushimi-Inari Shrine is one of the most popular sights in Kyoto, so better come early on a weekday morning. However, whenever you go, rest assured that you’ll leave most of the crowds behind as you ascend the mountain. Fushimi Inari Shrine is situated close to JR Inari Station on the JR Nara Line, not far from Kyoto Station. The shrine can also be accessed by a short walk from Fushimi Inari Station along the Keihan Main Line. Website: inari.jp/en/Address: 68 Fukakusa Yabunouchicho, Fushimi-ku, Kyoto 612-0882 Tenryu-ji Temple Picture Credit: www.thousandwonders.ne Afterwards, head toward the Tenryu-ji Temple & Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. Right off the main drag in Arashiyama, a few steps from the main bus stop Tenryuji-mae and the Keifuku Line’s Arashiyama Station, Tenryu-ji Temple is the logical first stop for any exploration of Arashiyama. Tenryu-ji is the most important temple in Kyoto's Arashiyama district. This Zen temple is registered as a UNESCO world heritage site. You start by exploring the main hall and observing the famed garden and pond from inside the hall, then you put your shoes back on and explore the garden, which is the main attraction, on foot. The Tenryu-ji Temple Garden is said to have been built by the founder of the temple, Muso Soseki, in the 14th century. The garden is arranged so that visitors can enjoy the changing scenery while walking around the pond in its center. Visitors can also have a taste of the temple's Zen vegetarian cuisine. The temple is a short walk from either Arashiyama station or Saga Arashiyama station (served by different subway lines). Website: http://www.tenryuji.com/en/Address: 68 Susukinobaba-cho, Saga Tenryu-ji, Ukyo-ku Arashiyama Bamboo Grove Picture Credit: www.insidekyoto.com Tenryu-ji Temple is connected to the iconic Arashiyama bamboo groove, make sure to take a stroll there as well. The bamboo trail can be accessed via the North Gate of the temple. The Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is one of Kyoto’s most popular tourist attractions and for good reason: standing among these sky-high stalks of bamboo is like being in another world. There’s just one main path through the grove, which leads leisurely uphill. Strolling through the forest will cost you nothing, since there is no entry fee. The Bamboo Forest is a popular location for wedding photographs – the presence of the newly married couple is quite common in the grove. Also, it is popular among Japanese girls and couples to put on their kimonos and head to the Bamboo Grove for a photoshoot. The crowds are worst in the weekends and particularly during the spring cherry blossom and fall color seasons, so just try to avoid these times. Address:  Saganonomiyacho, Ukyō-ku, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture 616-8394, Japan   Day 5: Kyoto - Nara Nara Park Picture Credit: www.wesidetrip.com With easy access from Kyoto, a trip to quiet Nara is the right idea to escape from Japan's well-known tourist magnet. Nara Park in central Nara alone is worth a full day. The park is home to hundreds of freely roaming deer. Believed to be messengers of the gods in the Shinto religion, Nara's nearly 1,200 deer have become a symbol of the city. Nara's deer are quite tame, although you should always keep in mind, that they are still wild animals. Deer crackers can be purchased around the park, and some deer have learned to bow to visitors to ask to be fed. Visiting and feeding the deer is a nice activity for families. Nara Park is a five minute walk from Kintetsu Nara Station or a about a 20 minute walk from JR Nara Station. Alternatively, you can reach the park by bus. There are multiple stops around the park. Website: https://www.visitnara.jp/destinations/area/nara-park/Address: Noboriojicho, Takahatacho, Kasugano, Zoshicho, Nara-shi, Nara-ken Of course, Nara does not lack of temples and shrines. In fact, Nara has a variety of shrines, temples, and ruins that are collectively a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So, if you are not into deer feeding, why not visit Ikoma Sanju Amusement Park or hike Mt. Wakakusa?   Day 6: Nara - Osaka Umeda Sky Building Picture Credit: www.elevatorimagazine.com With 2.7 million inhabitants, Osaka is the third largest city in Japan after Tokyo and Yokohama. The city is the traditional trade center of Japan and today one of the most important industrial centers and one of the most important ports in Japan. To get an overview, pay a visit to the Umeda Sky Building. If you stand in front of the sparkling glass walls of the 173-meter-high building, you will get a sense of the incredible achievements that were necessary to build this impressive structure. The Umeda Sky Building is a pair of skyscrapers connected in midair. The names of the two are the "Tower East" and "Tower West" which both are 173 meters tall with 40 floors. The building is a land mark of Osaka and at the very top of it there is a “floating garden observatory”. Don’t get mistaken by the name: oddly, the garden has no flowers or trees. Nonetheless, the stunning 360 degree panoramic view, which can be enjoyed from the open deck, is certainly worth a visit. The building is not only popular among tourists but also among couples. On the 39th floor, which is also where the entrance is, there is a restaurant, bar, and café to elegantly enjoy the best food and sights. Additionally, there are other places to enjoy besides the observatory. On the first basement level, there is the "Takimi Lane of Restaurants" that replicates the downtown romance of the early Showa Era. Many restaurants there serve typical Japanese dishes like Ramen, Teppanyaki, Tempura, and Sukiyaki. On the third floor of "Tower East", there is a cinema, showing movies from all over the world. At the outdoor space "Wonder Square" which is in between the Eastern and the Western towers, many festivals, exhibitions, shows, concerts, and fairs take place throughout the year. The nearest station is JR Osaka Station and Umeda Station of the Osaka City Subway, Hankyu Line, and Hanshin Line. It takes 10 to 15 minutes to walk to the building from either station.

It is one of Japan's most famous castles and played an important role in uniting Japan in the 16th century. When it was built in the late 16th century, it was the largest and most impressive castle Japan had ever seen. The entire Osaka Castle Park covers about two square kilometers with lots of green space, sport facilities, a multi-purpose arena (Osakajo Hall) and a shrine dedicated to its builder, Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Inside, you will find a museum displaying artefacts that includes art and armor. We recommend visiting the castle in the morning, so you will have enough time for more Osaka City sightseeing in the afternoon. The best approach to Osaka Castle is through Otemon Gate at the southwestern corner of the park. The closest subway station is Tanimachiyonchome Station along the Tanimachi Line and Chuo Line. Web: http://www.osakacastle.net/english/Address: 1-1 Osakajo, Chuo, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 540-0002 Aqua Liner Picture Credit: www.japan-highlightstravel.com After enjoying Osaka Castle, we recommend taking an Aqua-bus, the “Aqua Liner”, as a pleasant way of sightseeing. There are several rivers flowing through the city of Osaka crossed by many bridges.
