Japan Small Group Tours FAQ
  • How are the hot spring hotels we will stay in Japan?
    For the group 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. If you want to stay in a traditional Japanese Onsen, please inform your representative in advance and we will try to accommodate your need.
  • What type of meals will be provided for small group tours?
    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 and ordered in advance. We currently don't serve Indian vegetarian meal.
  • Do we need to pay extra for 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 small group tours offer optional tours and additional fees apply.
  • 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 group travel consultant in advance, so the tour guide can help to reserve a convenient seat for you.
  • Can we stay behind in Japan after the group 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.
  • How many people will be in each tour group?
    Usually there are 15 to 20 people on a tour group, and about 10 people during low season. However, during peak season like Cherry Blossom season, a tour can reach above 15 people.
  • 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.
  • May I book a hotel by myself if I join in the group tour?
    You need to book the same hotels as those used by the tour 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.
  • Do I need to give tips to the drivers and local guide?
    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 service they offered, and you are welcome to give extra 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 our group tours. The finalized hotel list with contact information will be provided to you on the final confirmation.
  • Do you offer the last minutes booking?
    Sorry. We do not accept the last minutes bookings. The reservation will be closed 10 days before departure dates as Japanese hotels are often full. We need to confirm the final number of rooms with the hotels in advance.
