Inside: Vancouver International Airport
Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is Canada's second busiest airport, following behind Toronto's Pearson Airport. YVR hosts an impressive 22.3 million passengers each year. The airport has won numerous awards since its opening in 1968, including Skytrax's Best North American Airport from 2010-2016.
One of YVR's biggest perks is its "street pricing" policy. Basically, restaurants and cafés have to price items at the same values as they would inside Vancouver itself. So, you can dine at many of YVR's food service venues without breaking the bank. The airport also contains a large array of shops--from duty-free to designer goods.
Check-In: Vancouver International Airport
For any international flight, Air Canada recommends that you arrive 120 minutes before your scheduled departure time. Vancouver's international flights leave from Concourse D and Concourse E, which are both situated inside the main terminal. Flying to Tokyo will require a valid Canadian passport. Upon landing at Narita International Airport, a temporary 90-day Japanese visa will be issued to you.
What to Expect When Landing in Tokyo
Tokyo's Narita International Airport is located 60 km to the east of city center. As the city's second busiest airport, this state-of-the-art facility contains three bustling terminals. Your airplane will likely touchdown in Terminal 1 or Terminal 2, because Terminal 3 is reserved for low-cost, domestic flights.
Keep in mind that Tokyo's local time is 16 hours ahead of Vancouver. For example, 12 PM in Vancouver is 4 AM when you reach Japan. If you're hungry when you land, eating out in Tokyo is actually more affordable than Vancouver by 7.85%. But stay away from grocery stores. Their prices are 29.25% higher in Tokyo.
On a final note, the two cities' climates are surprisingly similar. Vancouver has a warm, oceanic climate, while Tokyo is known for its humid, subtropical temperatures. So, check the weather forecast before you depart, but you probably won't have to change your outfit upon landing.
