Japan Tourist Visa Cover Letter Sample (Use One for Your Application)

We are sharing here our Japan tourist visa cover letter sample to guide fellow travelers and tourist visa applicants.

Many readers have been requesting to post the cover letter we used on our tourist visa application, so here I am posting the cover letter I made for my sister.

As mentioned, we successfully got our Multiple Entry Visa even though it was our first time applying for a Japanese tourist visa.

If you want to know how our visa got approved and how we got a multiple entry visa, please visit this page: “How I Got My Japan Multiple Entry Visa in One Shot.”

Japan Tourist Visa Cover Letter Sample and Format

Embassy of Japan in the Philippines

2627 Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City, 1300

Dear Sir/Madam,


My name is Lauren Park, with Passport Number: CB8787888, and I am requesting a tourist visa to travel to Japan.

It’s always been my dream to visit Japan someday. I am fascinated by its warm culture and heritage. I want to explore its ancient Shrines and Temples. I am hoping to see the Cherry Blossoms and the beautiful city of Tokyo. I am thrilled to see Japan’s Disneyland and wait for the night’s incredible fireworks.

I am looking forward to riding a Bullet Train and see Osaka. I am excited to be in Universal Studios. To be exploring the stunning places of Kyoto and Nara is on my Bucket List, too.

All my supporting documents and visa application are attached below.

  1. Philippine Passport
  2. Visa Application Form
  3. Original Birth Certificate
  4. Daily Schedule in Japan
  5. Original Bank Certificate
  6. Income Tax Return
  7. Certificate of Employment
  8. Roundtrip Airline Ticket

I am hoping for your kind consideration. Japan will always be special in my heart. I hope I will be able to travel and explore its beauty.

Sincerely yours,

Lauren Park

Important Notes:

Please do not copy the sample cover letter above. It is just a guide, and do not submit it exactly as it is.

Just imagine the readers who do that, and you all would have the same cover letter. That would be risky on your application.

Make sure you write your own cover letter following what’s in your heart and following your itinerary or plans to travel to Japan.

Why should you submit a Cover Letter for Japan Tourist Visa?

Even though a Cover Letter is not one of the primary requirements and documents needed for a Japan tourist visa application. It is usually attached when applying for your second application or applying for a Multiple Entry visa.

However, I recommend you also attach a Cover Letter even if it is your first time applying for a tourist visa and even if you are not aiming for a multiple entry visa.

A Cover Letter is a formal way of you letting the embassy knows your keen reasons and intention to visit and travel to Japan. It is a way of telling the consul why you love to travel to Japan.

So, in my opinion, it is an advantage to help get your visa approved successfully.

Visa applications like Schengen member countries require a Cover Letter as part of the document checklist. It is beneficial if you make one for your visa application.

It is not so difficult to create anyway. It will only take a few minutes of your time. Besides, seeing Japan is priceless.

  1. Good day!
    Our Travel date is on March 1 to 6 this 2020. We already have plane ticket as well as hotel. All are paid na po. Visa nalang kulang. However, ma la late and uwi sa Pinas yung husband ko dahil nasa port sila ng China. Hndi sila pwede umuwi dahil sa corona virus. So sa Australia pa sila uuwi. 23 or 24 pa sila lalapag ng Pilipinas. Mag apply kami kinabukasan or that day mismo.
    Possible po kaya na makuha namin agad yung result ng visa application namin kung sa last week ng February kami mag apply? Sayang namn kasi lahat is ready na Visa nalang

  2. I’m a multiple visa holder, too, and I will apply for my son (first time). Should I write a cover letter on his behalf? My son is a minor. Thanks!

      • Hi Ms. Fehl! What was the latest time to get your visa? I mean my flight is on May 24-28. Can I apply for a visa by next week? I went to Japan last 2018 and they granted me a single entry visa and now I’m trying my luck to get a multiple visa, should I get my visa na ba? Hope you will noticed this. Thank you so much in advance.
