    Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes with good support because you walk minimum 10,000 steps a day up and down stairs sometimes with your luggage. Make sure to check the weather forecast and pack appropriate clothing for the weather. Trust me.

    would have liked more time in Osaka and Hiroshima but otherwise it was great. Our guide was amazing. The hotel in Kyoto was the best. Would have liked more that style. Having to travel on peak hour trains and subways with large suitcases was not fun... Show more

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      The tour operator has advised that they do not have a list of accommodations available for the Japan Highlights tour, as the accommodations change so frequently. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details.

      On this tour, you will be staying 8 nights in hotels, 2 nights in a ryokan and 1 night in a guesthouse. The tour operator endeavours to select a combination of good quality hotels, hostels and guesthouses that reflects the character of the local area as well as being centrally located. The rooms are en-suite and twin where possible, depending on what you have booked.

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • What is the age range?

      Topdeck creates trip itineraries designed exclusively for younger travellers. They can be more fast-paced, budget-minded, and includes activities for travellers to meet and have fun with other young passengers from all parts of the world! Their brand is designed around this unique experience geared toward younger travellers, so only passengers aged 18 - 39 years old can travel on this tour.
