    So I'm new here. And I can't seem to find any information as far as vaping laws in Japan. My girlfriend and I plan to take a week long trip to Tokyo in the future. And I can't seem to find what the laws and regulations are as far as E-cigarettes go. I know that they don't sell nicotine in their e-liquids, but I vape a 3mg. So my question is, does anyone know what the laws and regulations are as far as me bringing my own vape and juice with me?

    The only thing I know about the cigarette situation in japan is it’s one of not terribly many countries where the iQOS is sold.
    Also, Iirc the Far East in general has a whole other selection set on not-from-China vape gear from places like the Philippines.
    So the possibilities of vaping souvineers exists

    You can bring your stuff. No problem. You're expected to treat it like smoking. Vape in designated smoking areas.

    Don't sell your juice. It is illegal for you to sell it.

    I never planned to sell it. I just want to have some nicotine in my juice before I go. I appreciate the information!

    Have a wonderful trip. You can bring your vapes, and possibly even find some interesting thing to bring back :) (If desired.)

    My understanding is that in Japan, there are many vapers.

    I was in Tokyo not long ago. Smoking on the street and other outdoor areas is not really acceptable during the daytime. I got told off by the Police for smoking several times (one officer even stated that vaping and smoking are the same thing in Japan). The good news is that all the restaurants seem to have smoking areas (if not the entire thing being a smoking area) and they are not unpleasant to be in due to the high levels of IQOS use

    You can bring your equipement in, no sales allowed. If you are there for long you will have to buy their 0mg juice once you finish yours, not possible to order any juice with nicotine into the country. Do double check if you are allowed to bring juice with nic in, also vape responsibly (at the designated smoking area)

    You can take in juice that contains nicotine-it is legal to import

    I am quite sure importation is either not allowed or restricted (e.g 120ml/month) but do check again as I might be wrong. Cheers!
