And The World's Most Powerful Passport Is...

The world's most powerful passport is..... Japanese! A group called Henley & Partners offers a "passport index" with "the most rigorous and sophisticated measure of global access." And right now, Japan is leading the global rankings.

As CNN reports, Japan owes its number 1 slot to the fact that its citizens can travel to 190 destinations around the globe without a visa or with "visa-on-arrival access."

Care to take a guess as to where the U.S. lands? It's hanging in at number 5. Apparently we've got 186 visa-free or visa-on-arrival destinations. Not too shabby.
