How are the hot spring hotels we will stay in Japan?
For tours from Tokyo to Osaka, you will enjoy a night at a hot spring hotel. Unless upon special request, we will not arrange the traditional hot spring hotel with Tatami bed. Instead, we will arrange modern hot spring hotel with kimono and gata prepared for you. You might want to bring a swimming suit if you prefer. If you want to stay in a traditional hot spring hotel, please inform your representative in advance and we will try to accommodate your need. Most of the hotels, especially those in Hokkaido, are long-established and traditional, thus are very hard to rate with standards.
Are Japan hotel rooms we will stay small?
Japanese hotels are generally smaller compare with American and European type hotels. A typical room of 4-stars Japanese hotel is about 22 to 29 square meter (or 240 to 310 square foot). Most hotels in Japan do not have smoking restriction, especially hot spring hotels. However, we can try to arrange nonsmoking room upon request.
What type of meals will be provided?
The breakfasts offered by hotels are in buffet styles. Other meals are traditional Japanese cuisine. If you have requested vegetarian meal, Japanese style vegetarian meals will be served. Vegetarian meal in Japan is simple and has to be arranged in advance. We currently don't serve Hindu vegetarian meal. During your stay in hot spring hotel, we will provide a traditional Japanese cuisine.
Do we need to pay extra for all the attractions in Japan?
Any attractions listed on the itinerary are included in the tour price without additional charge. You do not have to pay extra for admission tickets unless specified, for example the admission to Tokyo Tower. Some tours offer optional tours and additional fees apply.
Do we need to pay for the meals in Japan?
The tour includes some of the meals, and they are indicated as Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner on the itinerary. Listed meals will be provided without additional cost. For the meals that are not included, our tour guide will recommend local restaurants and you may dine at a restaurant of your choice at your own expense.
Does every hotel provide breakfast and what foods are provided?
All the breakfasts are included. The breakfasts are served with both Japanese and Western foods in buffet style. Hotel breakfast hours are usually from 7:00AM to 9:30AM. If you need to catch your flight and do not have time for breakfast on the last day, our tour guide can help to order a breakfast box to go.
Can we select the bus seat in advance for my elderly mom?
Usually, seat selection is not allowed. However, considering your mom' situation, you may inform your travel consultant in advance, so the tour guide can help to reserve a convenient seat for you. Also we recommend keeping the same seat throughout the tour.
Can we stay behind in Japan after the tour ends?
We can help to arrange the hotel for an extended stay. However, because we have a fix rate with the hotel, sometimes you may find cheaper deals online.If you are booking your hotel online, your tour guide can help to consult with the front desk to arrange the same room for you.
What will be provided on the vegetarian meal during Korea tour?
Because of the special diet in Korean Culture, the cuisine usually includes grilled pork, side dishes, and rice. If you request vegetarian meal for your Korean tour, we can only provide mixed vegetables, kimchi, rice, and soybean paste stew. Because most of the meals will be arranged at barbeque restaurants, they do not offer a large variety of vegetarian food. If you want vegetarian food other than the simple vegetarian meal provided, you may consult the tour guide on the local vegetarian restaurants available.
How many people will be in each tour group? What kind of bus are used?
Usually there are 20 to 25 people on a tour, and about 15 people during low season. However, during peak season like Cherry Blossom season, a tour can reach above 30 people. The bus type used will depend on the number of the people on the tour. For less than 13 people, Coaster Mid-size bus will be used. For about 25 people, a 37-seats big bus will be used. For over 26 people, the largest bus with 45 seats will be used.
Do I have to pay a single room supplement if I join in the tour group by myself?
If you are traveling alone, single supplement fee will apply because you will have your own room. The single supplement fee is the additional charge to compensate for half of the room price. Because tourists are with different cultural backgrounds and habits, we do not pair up single travelers. If you do not want to pay the single supplement fee, you are welcome to invite a guest to travel with you.
How to book a Japan group tour? How much is it cost?
Please refer to our Booking Procedure page for details. Additionally, the price for each tour is explicitly listed on the product pages. The price depends on the tour as well as the season.
May I book a hotel by myself if I join in the group tour?
If you want to join the tour, you will need to book the same hotels as those used by the group. Since our finalized hotel list will be sent to you about 10 to 12 days before departure date, it will be late and very hard to book the hotels on your own.
Is there any age limit for participating in the group?
Though there is no age limit for participating in the group, we recommend travelers are in good health condition because there will be about a 3-4 Km walk daily for sightseeing. Also, travel insurance is highly recommended, and hospitals in Japan are some of the best in the world.
I notice tips are pre-paid as part of the tour price. Do I still need to give tips to the drivers an
Because of the particular culture in Japan, tour guides and drivers generally do not prefer taking tips directly from travelers. Thus, we collect tips in advance and later distribute to them along with their basic salary. However, if you like the tour guide and the service, you are welcome to give more tips, preferably in an envelope.
Are we guaranteed to get the hotels listed on the itinerary?
The listed hotels are contracted with our company. According to different tour itineraries and dates, we book the hotels in advance. However, in case we cannot book the same hotels, we reserve the right to arrange similar hotels for you.The finalized hotel list with contact information will be provided to you on the final confirmation.
