We have already written an article talking about Japanese Citizenship and that its main benefits are having a Japanese passport. Today we are going to talk about the countless benefits that this Japanese passport provides! The power of the Japanese passport is so great that it allows free entry to more than 155 countries.

The Japanese passport is the 4th most powerful passport in the world, and allows entry into countries that are difficult to obtain a visa like the USA. We will see in this article a list of countries where the japanese passport allows entry without a visa or with a visa.
