A note on hotels:
A single room additional fee is mandatory for any odd number of participants. However, triple rooms may be available upon request, depending on the hotel.

In Japan, a densely populated country where everything is more compact, the 2* and 3* hotels are of good quality but the rooms are often very small (10 to 18m2 depending on the hotel). For more space, don't hesitate to contact us for an upgrade to a 4* hotel.

Rooms for 2 people in Western hotels have 2 separate single beds ("twin" room) by default. Contact us to request a double bed at no extra cost but no guarantee of availability. Note that double bed rooms are smaller than twin rooms.

*Price of flights by dates (with airport transfers to hotel by bus) are given for information only on the page "reservation basket". This price includes airport taxes which can be revised if necessary.
The date of departure and end of tour date relate to your stay in Tokyo. You will need to fly the day before from your country. However, the return flight should arrive the same day, given the favorable time difference (depending on your home country).
