Flying to Japan from the US
Here’s everything you’ll need to know when flying to Japan from the US, including flight times and entry requirements.
Flight times to Japan from the US will vary depending on where you’re departing from. For example, from the West Coast, a direct flight will take around twelve and a half hours. On the other hand, from the East Coast, the flight will take about 14 hours.
US visitors heading to Japan won’t need a visa for tourism or business visits of up to 90 days. However, you must hold a valid passport and an onward or return ticket during your stay and Japanese immigration officials may refuse you entry if you appear to have no visible means of support.
Foreign nationals are also required to provide a fingerprint scan and be photographed at the airport.
For non-US citizens, there may be visa requirements, so we recommend checking out the Japanese Embassy website.
