For many Westerners of the baby-boom generation, their first exposure to Japanese pop culture was through television and occasionally in theaters, when Japanese science-fiction and fantasy movies were imported, edited and dubbed in English by U.S. distributors.

If, like us, you like to mix technology with travel to find the best deals on air travel then you should take a look at the Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM) mobile app. The app offers a huge array of familiar website services on your smartphone that can help you conveniently plan your next flight with ease.

The Flying Blue feature allows you to save your details at the login section on your iPhone or Android device for easy pre-filled details when booking. This is a great feature for those who are not fond of typing in all required information every time you use the app. Making a booking on the app is an extremely easy process, you choose the destination and enter your desired travel dates to view/compare all flights available.

The in-app filter allows you to toggle direct or indirect flights, number of passengers and whether your trip is one way or return, once all your details have been entered then you can safely proceed to the payment section.

By far the greatest feature of this app is the ability to store your boarding pass direct to your phone, this allows you to save printing paper and helps keep everything digital. Adding to this feature the app will also keep you updated on your flight details, it will alert you to any delays or important changes that may happen, this is a very convenient option that is sure to be of use from time to time.

With all these features and ease of use the KLM app is an all round must have app for any jet setter that flies around the globe regularly—just be sure not to try and fly like this man:

I have always been a firm believer of waking up early while traveling. Why waste time sleeping during these precious traveling hours when you could wake up early, soak up the first rays of the morning sun and take in the beautiful sights that a foreign land has to offer? Especially for a place like Kamikochi in Matsumoto city, Nagano Prefecture, it would be all the more...
