Passports and Visas
Every foreign visitor entering Japan must have a valid passport. Visitors from countries without visa exempt agreements with Japan should apply to a Japanese consular office or diplomatic mission in their home country. Please be aware that visa applications may take as long as one month from the time your completed application is submitted to the consulate.
For further details, please refer VISA information of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan
If you would like to apply VISA, please contact NI15 secretariat.
Only Japanese Yen are acceptable as currency at stores and restaurants. You can exchange money at the airport or a bank. Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) can be found at the airport and throughout the city.
Participants are advised to take care of their own personal insurance. NT15 organizers will carry no responsibility in case of an accident, sickness, theft or other property damage.
Time Zone Information
Local time is the same throughout Japan. The Japanse time zone is UTC+9:00, meaning that time in Nagoya is 9 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT or UT).
The voltage in Japan is 100 Volt, which is different from North America (110V), Central Europe (220V) and most other regions of the world. Japanese electrical plugs have two, non-polarized pins. They fit into North American outlets.
Japanese power outlets are identical to ungrounded (2-pin) North American outlets. While most Japanese outlets these days are polarized (one slot is slightly wider than the other), it is possible to encounter non-polarized outlets in some places. Some North American equipment will work fine in Japan without adapter and vice versa, however, some sensitive equipment may not work properly or even get damaged. If you intend to purchase electronic appliances in Japan for use outside of Japan, you are advised to look for equipment specifically made for oversea tourists.
The frequency of electric current is 50 Hertz in Eastern Japan (including Tokyo, Yokohama, Tohoku, Hokkaido) and 60 Hertz in Western Japan (including Nagoya, Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Shikoku, Kyushu), however this frequency difference affects only sensitive equipment.
