How long does it take to get to Guam from japan?

There is only water between Guam and Japan. Southern Japan (airport code RNJ) is closest to Guam. The distance is about 1420 statute miles and can be travelled by ship or airplane. On a cruise ship it would take 4 days but on an jet airliner, it would take about 3 hours 15 minutes. On the other hand, a luxury yacht could cover the distance quicker whereas a slower aircraft like a turbo prop or a piston powered aircraft would take longer than a jet airliner....
