  • Plan To Travel After Covid-19? Here Are 12 Reasons Why You Should Travel To Japan!

    The COVID-19 situation has resulted in a travel ban in some countries. Usually, around this time of the year, many people would have planned for their next holiday! Given the situation currently, we can only plan for our next trip once the situation gets better. But hey, planning for a trip can be exciting too! And if you are still struggling to decide which destination you should go to once it is safe to travel again, then we recommend Japan! I, myself, have my destination set for Japan next, and if you do too, then great! Japan has always been one of the popular destinations amongst tourists especially with the increasing Muslim-friendly services here. Here are 12 reasons why Japan should be your next destination after the Covid-19 pandemic! via GIPHY Also Read: Looking For Accommodation? Bunk in These 7 Muslim-Friendly Ryokans in Japan! 1. Natural Wonders of Japan Image Credit: Walter Mario Stein on Unsplash Japan is not all about city life. Apart from all the modernity and advanced technology tagged to its image, Japan holds an incredible natural landscape. We can never forget about the iconic Mount Fuji when it comes to the natural landscape in Japan. Who can also forget Arashiyama's Bamboo Forest, one of the must-visit places when you are in Osaka or Kyoto area. There are so many other incredible natural wonders in Japan that you should check out! Fit them in your itinerary and get awestruck by the view! 2. Rich Culture and Tradition Image Credit: Aya Salman on Unsplash The culture in Japan has evolved throughout the years. But walk down some streets and alleys in Japan, and you can still see the traditional elements. Japan, to me, is a fusion of traditional and modernity. Apart from being picturesque, there are so many things to see and learn in Japan. Japan's popular culture has brought about global recognition, such as anime and manga. Not to forget traditional art appreciation like Japanese painting, calligraphy, and Ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement). I have always been interested in Kimono, not only from the way of wearing one but also from the prints and textiles. It is a great experience to don one too! Japan's rich culture and tradition is definitely one of the reasons why you should visit the country if you haven't!  3. Halal Food Image Credit: Helga Christina on Unsplash Often, I was asked this question from my peers: "Is it easy to find Halal food in Japan?" Let me assure you that it is, and it has gotten better! Comparing my trip in 2013 to the recent ones in 2019, sourcing for Halal food has gotten easier. The food industry in Japan has embraced Halal gastronomy and it will continue to grow in the nearest future. The best thing about traveling is trying local delicacies and food. Think about the authentic taste of Sushi, Ramen and Udon. This should be one of the reasons to get you excited to explore Japan! For more information on where you can locate Halal food in Japan, you can refer to this. 4. Transportation Image Credit: Ian Matyssik on Unsplash You must have heard about how accurate and efficient Japan's transportation is. And this is always true. The only time I had to wait for the train to arrive was due to a snowstorm and an accident during my previous visit. The accurate and "on-time" transportation timings really help in planning for your trip. Also, Japan is highly accessible; it is easy to get from one place to another via public transportation. Which gets me to my next point. Japan's railway system might be intimidating and confusing to many. With so many lines, different train companies, and different train categories, it can be overwhelming at times. We suggest proper planning and if possible, prepare your Google maps for ease! I myself feel the need to rely on Google Maps all the time as it helps in determining the platform number, train line, and category. Either way, it will be a great adventure and experience for you!  5. Entertainment Image Credit: Megan McClain on Unsplash If you are in a J-pop fandom, it is likely for you to travel to and fro Japan to watch concerts of your favorite groups. Even for fans of Japanese Anime, traveling to Japan is like a dream come true. Take, for example, Akihabara, a town in Tokyo, which is filled with various products of Japanese popular culture; you will have endless choices of merchandise and goods to choose from. For all of you fans of the Pokémon franchise, don't forget to visit the Pokémon centers of Tokyo here! And it is definitely way cheaper to buy it straight from the country of origin.  Other than that, Japan is also home to the popular Studio Ghibli. If you are a fan of these classic Japanese animation films, don't miss out on the Studio Ghibli museum in Mitaka! My advice? Just make sure you have enough baggage weight to bring back all of these goods!  6. Accommodation Image Credit: Jack Zhang on Unsplash Japan has various kinds of accommodation available for all types of travelers. Capsule hotel was first developed in Japan, and its concept has been adopted in other countries. Apart from hostels and hotels, you can always opt for apartments. I remember how Airbnb wasn't vastly used back then, and there tend to be some mishaps. As most rental apartments need to be registered under the Japanese Government, it's relatively easier to trust booking accommodations through Airbnb nowadays. The most exciting part is, you can try living among the locals while booking accommodation via Airbnb. If these still don't excite you, why not stay in a traditional Japanese tatami house or Ryokans (Traditional Japanese Inns)? These accommodations offer you the full traditional Japanese experience of relaxation and most importantly, there are some Ryokans that provide Muslim-friendly services in Japan! What an experience it will be!  7. Top Cities to Visit Image Credit: Alexander Smagin on Unsplash Each city in Japan has its own uniqueness, bringing about endless choices to explore. Top destinations like Tokyo and Osaka no longer needs an introduction. If you need a break from Tokyo, you can always visit Hakone, which is famous for its hot spring and scenic view. Sapporo, the capital city of Hokkaido, is popular for its snow festival held annually in February. Or visit Hiroshima, one of the historical cities in Japan. Whichever city you decided to visit, it will definitely be a great one!Also Read: The Best Muslim-Friendly Destinations in Japan 8. Japan's Four Seasons Image Credit: AJ on Unsplash For someone who is born and raised in a country with no seasonal change, I am always looking forward to traveling to countries with the four different seasons. Japan has a remarkable view and exciting activities to do all seasons. It is known to be one of the best destinations to view cherry blossoms in spring. But it does not stop there. Christmas is always magical in Japan with lightings and illuminations during winter. Meanwhile, you can catch festivals in summer like the Matsuri festivals and witness the trees turn into pretty shades of orange and yellow foliage as it approaches autumn. Are you tempted to visit Japan yet?  9. Amusement Parks Image Credit: Ester Marie Doysabas on Unsplash Homed to renowned Universal Studio Japan and Disneyland, this should be one of the reasons to travel to Japan! Most travelers would have this in their bucket list as both of these amusement parks are popular tourist attractions! These theme parks are also places where you can get souvenirs for your loved ones! Don't forget to put on those cute Disney Ears Hats and headbands before making your way to Disneyland! Either you are jumping on the bandwagon as a tourist, or you just want to have some fun, you will make great memories here!  10. Convenience Store (Konbini) Image Credit: Joan Tran on Unsplash If there's one thing that should excite you to travel to Japan, it's the convenience store, also known as Konbini! It's not only 7-11 chains that you can find here, but there are also Family Mart, Lawson and Sunkus. Unlike the supermarket, they are opened 24/7 and don't be surprised to find one at almost every location. Your choices here are not limited to food and drinks; you can also find everyday items like cosmetics, toiletries, and stationeries. They also provide services like ATM machines, photocopy and printing services and ticketing machines for various activities like concerts and amusement parks. And did I mention that it is the best place to go to if you are lost? Apart from refreshing yourself, you can also ask the shopkeeper for directions as they tend to have a map around the area and may be able to help you.  11. 100yen Shops Image Credit: Hamish Duncan on Unsplash Dare I say this is one of the best places to shop for anything? Even if it's necessary or not! You can find various items here like household products and craft items. Each store holds different products, so if you're lucky, you might find some hidden gem somewhere. There are also other chains like 3coins and the renowned Daiso, which is always crowded given its popularity amongst tourists. I can spend hours going from aisle to aisle browsing items and trust me, it's the best place to get souvenirs too! If you are lucky enough, you can even find Japan-made products which make great souvenirs to take home for your family and friends. 12. A Safe Country Image Credit: Lilian Luk on Unsplash Japan is known for being a generally safe country. As it is one of the safest countries in the world, there should be fewer things to worry about and you could walk around the cities with ease, even at night. Nonetheless, even though Japan is known for its low crime rate, this doesn't mean that we can be too comfortable as a tourist. Travel safety still applies, and it should always be our top priority.   Also Read: 10 Main Shopping Enclaves in Shibuya - Japan! Japan is worth visiting at least once in your lifetime. There are so many things to do and see, be it solo, with friends or with your family. I am sure these 12 reasons will get you all excited to choose Japan as your next destination after the Covid-19 pandemic because it sure does for me (again!).  via GIPHY ...

  • Airlines in East Asia Offering Halal In-Flight Meals

    When making travel plans, one of the biggest concerns is the food – what are the Halal options in the country we are visiting, or what are the alternatives? Sometimes we tend to forget that the journey starts from the airport – does the airline that we are taking offer Halal food? If you are travelling from a Muslim country or with a Muslim airline, you don’t have anything to worry about. If you don’t want a vegetarian meal, however, it is better to know your options, and if there are any at all. Travelling from or in East Asia can be tricky because the cuisine is so different and the ingredients might be vague, so here is our guide to which airlines provide Halal in-flight food, and everything you need to know about getting them. Check out the airlines in Southeast Asia offering Halal in-flight meals First, to be clear, East Asia is classified as China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, North Korea, South Korea, Macau and Mongolia. China has several airlines to its name and most of them provide options for Halal meals. China Southern Airlines In order to accommodate as many people as possible, China Southern Airlines provides lots of options, one of which is the Moslem meal. It has to be booked at least 24 hours beforehand through customer service and is only available for dinner, snacks or a light meal. Please note that any changes in the flight – delays or cancellations – will affect the meal reservations. A passenger is allowed only one special meal per flight. China Eastern Airlines Once you have made your booking, call your local office to make a reservation for a Moslem Meal – or any other special meal – and you will be assisted. Most airlines state a general rule of reserving special meals 24 hours in advance, so don’t leave it until the last minute. China Eastern Airlines also offers various other options that take care of those with allergies or other preferences. Air China Air China offers in-flight Halal meals that need to be specified 24 hours in advance. The airline states that Kosher Meals are not available on all domestic flights or domestic segments for routes departing from Saipan, Sapporo, Sendai, South Korea, Jakarta, India, Karachi, Australia and Yekaterinburg. So it is worth double checking the availability of Halal food in-flight if your route leaves from any of the places listed above. Xiamen Airlines You can place the booking for a Halal meal when booking your flight, and make sure to confirm your preference at least 24 hours in advance as Halal meals are limited. This part is important, as the airline stresses on confirming the Halal meal. They also offer Vegetarian, Western Vegetarian and Seafood Meals in case you miss out on the Halal option. Sichuan Airlines The last in the list of Chinese Airlines, Sichuan Airlines offers health conscious and religious conscious meals – Halal meals being amongst them. Book your in-flight preference when you make your ticket reservation, and don’t forget to confirm it at least 24 hours before flight departure. Follow the airport guide to Beijing Explore amazing places in China Japan Airlines If you prefer going through the website, submit your choice for a Halal in-flight meal at least 25 hours before flight departure, or 24 hours ahead through phone. If you are changing your flight reservations, be sure to mention your special meal preferences too. Double check the availability of Halal meals, since special meal services may not be available on the code-share flights operated by another carrier. Japan Airlines recently went all out in accommodating Muslim travelers by even switching all dishware used for the Muslim meals to disposable ones – to make their travelers feel as comfortable and secure as possible. AirAsia In general, when flying Air Asia you have nothing to fear as they offer a Muslim-friendly in-flight food menu for all meals. They source all their meat from Halal certified suppliers, with the exception of AirAsia Japan and Philippines. All Nippon Airways Known for their delicious meals and classy chefs, All Nippon Airways also offers Halal in-flight meals. It needs to be booked at least 48 hours before departure either through their reservations department or online. If you have booked your ticket through a travel agent, then your request for a special meal must be made through the travel agent as well. Visit top attractions in Japan Best places to visit in Japan Cathay Pacific Flying to and from Hong Kong, Cathay Pacific offers a Moslem Meal under their special meal options, which has to be ordered up to 24 hours before departure. If you are flying Cathay Pacific to Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Middle East and Pakistan, note that all main meals are Halal certified. Korean Air You can book an in-flight Halal meal 24 hours in advance, but since special meal offerings vary depending on where you are departing from, it is better to double check the availability. While the airline states Seoul accommodates its passengers in this regard, it is always better to be sure. Amazing attractions in South Korea Asiana Airlines Your other airline option when flying to and from South Korea, Asiana Airlines allows you to order a Moslem Meal 24 hours before departure. They also offer a variety of meals and take into consideration dietary requirements or allergies. Plan a trip to Seoul China Airlines When flying to and from Taiwan, you can be sure that Halal food will be provided on the journey if you specify your preference to the airline at least 24 hours before departure. China Airlines wants to make their passengers feel as comfortable as possible and meet their needs when it comes to age, health, religion or anything else. Look at airport guides to Taiwan It turns out that Muslim travel is definitely being accommodated more as several airlines offer the option of Halal meals. If you want to know how to book in-flight Halal food in advance, just call up the airline or travel agent and they should be happy to help. Note that the terms for these in-flight meals are generally ‘Moslem Meal’ or ‘Halal meal’ under the Special Meals option.
