Japan Visa Schedule of Stay Sample (Daily Schedule Form)

Here’s our Japan Visa Schedule of Stay sample form you can download for free and use as a guide for your visa application. It is also called Daily Schedule for Japan travel itinerary.

Recently, I shared with you “How I got My Japan Multiple Entry Visa in One Shot.” One of the important requirements to submit for your Japan visa application is the Schedule of Stay, often also referred to as Daily Schedule.

In this post, I am going to share with you an example of this document. You can also download the sample form and use it as a guide in making your daily schedule for your trip to Japan.

What is a Schedule of Stay for a Japan Tourist Visa?

The Schedule of Stay is a document that provides your itinerary for your travel to Japan. It covers your daily schedule. The Embassy of Japan has given a uniform format that should be followed correctly. Applicants of tourist visas to Japan must follow this format for successful visa approval.

You can use it as a reference or as a guide in making your schedule of stay for Osaka as well. Just change the details for your Osaka travel plans.

You must make hotel reservations before you submit the Daily Schedule form to the agency or embassy. Read my tips below on how to make hotel reservations without a down payment.

Tips for the Submission of Daily Schedule Form for Japan Tourist Visa

On your Schedule of Stay, make sure you list down the places you want to visit per day and mention the activities you plan to do if any.

It helps that the areas you want to see are interconnected or closer to each other. It will make your itinerary more convincing and realistic.

Make sure you provide accurate information, especially on the contact numbers of the hotels for your accommodation or the persons who are accommodating you for your stay in Japan.

The embassy might verify the information, so ensure you will only provide valid details and confirmed information on your document.

Do not worry about booking in advance for your hotel reservations. I will share with you the tips below on how to book hotels without paying.

How to Make Hotel Reservations without Payment

I always use Booking.com for my hotel reservations because they allow reservations without any payment or any credit card info.

You can also use it to book your hotels for your Schedule of Stay or your Japan travel. No worries, you can cancel the reservations without any fee, too.

I also find the cheapest hotels at Booking.com both for my domestic and international travels.

  1. Hi just want to ask do they base amount on the bir 2316 cause I have no mark travels yet on my passport. Can u send me the complete requirements. Thanks much!

  2. You don’t need to have bookings to fill in the Daily Schedule. I just got my multiple entry 30 day visa for 5 years to Japan without booking anything. No flight booking. No hotel/airbnb booking.
    I just checked the flight number to and from Tokyo and put it in the Visa Application Form.
    I also browsed cheap places to stay in the places I said I would go to and just used their address and contact info on the Daily Schedule.
    The embassy does not call the establishments to see if you are booked at that hotel. They just want to see if you are prepared enough to plan a trip.
    Even after I got my Visa, I haven’t booked anything yet. I plan to book flights when there is a sale and look for an airbnb once flights are booked. You don’t even have to stick to the places or things you put in the Daily Schedule.

    • I booked hotel reservations but I did not pay anything for those bookings. It is best to have confirmed reservations as it was advised by the Japanese agency where I lodged my application. It was also noted from their requirements. The embassy may or may not call those hotels to confirm per applicant but they may do it. Better to always follow the rules. 🙂
