Are you ready to join me to Japan? Then let’s start! Our journey started on Monday, 7 October 2013. With quite empty suitcases we (2 BFF, my sister and me) arrived about 2 p.m. at the airport in Zurich. I booked us a flight with Emirate Airline cause I had a positive experience on my last trip to Japan three years ago. The staff is very friendly, the entertainment program on board is top and you can fill your suitcase up to 30 kilograms/~66 pounds (which was quite important for us girls ;-). After a 6 hours flight we had a short stop-over in Dubai before we head on to Osaka. After another 6 hours flight and spending our time with eating plane food, watching movies, sleeping and senseless sitting around we finally arrived at about 5 p.m. at Kansai airport in Osaka. The long travel from Switzerland to Japan made us so tired that we didn’t do much on that day. We checked in at the Hearton Hotel Shinsaibashi and walked around to find a nice place to fill up our empty stomachs with yummy Japanese food.
Wanna see more than one area in Japan? Get a Japan Rail Pass!
It allows tourists to travel around Japan at very reasonable prices.
But attention, you have to buy it BEFORE you fly to Japan and you have to change the voucher at a JR conter in Japan to get the valid ticket.
For Swiss tourists, you can buy the ticket online here: jr-pass.ch

Entertainment on boad; movies, TV soaps, doramas, games and more
