Japan is my favorite country and the easiest flight I could find from Cebu when I was in the Philippines was a flight to Tokyo, bound for Narita International Airport.
Do you need a Japan visa as a Philippine passport holder?
As a Philippine passport holder, yes I need a visa to enter Japan. So, I wrote an article about it:
and I got my Japan visa with Multiple Entries for 5 years.
How to reach Tokyo from Narita airport?
Getting out of Narita International Airport is kind of overwhelming and confusing. To enjoy the convenience of a budget-shared transfer from Narita airport or Haneda airport to the heart of Tokyo, book a reliable transfer service.
Another one is to experience the Keisei Skyliner train, it was a wonderful experience for me as it was very quick to reach my destination around Tokyo, book your high-speed train experience here.
Do you need a 4G Wifi Powerbank in Tokyo?
I highly recommend that you should book a 4G Wifi power bank in Tokyo. You can pick up the device at Narita International Airport.
