Please be aware the starting hotel is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Unfortunately, the tour operator does not offer airport transfers in Japan and you will, therefore, have to make your own way from and to the airport.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Unfortunately, the tour operator can't assist with booking pre- and post-accommodation in Japan, however, you are more than welcome to book directly with the hotels yourself.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      The tour operator has advised that they do not have a hotel list available for this tour, as all accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details. That being said, two examples of hotels that they often stay at on this tour are Hotel Abest Ginza Kyobashi in Tokyo
      and Hotel Keihan Kyoto Grande in Kyoto - hopefully, this can give you an idea of the kind of accommodation you can expect on tour.
