Travel update – Japan to Open on 28 June 2022

While Japan is opening up for small group tours (as of 10 June 2022) Australians are still required to get a Visa to enter Japan and must be part of a package tour with Japanese tour companies. This means that our normal guided tours are on hold (for the short term) and we have to arrange tours through our Japanese partners at their package deal prices. We expect this sanction to be lifted within the next few months as Japan opens up more to normal travel. Having said that, we are taking bookings for all of our tours including our planned Classic Japan Tour (21 Oct-5 Nov) the 2023 Snow Festival tour and the 2023 Cherry Blossum Tour. Places on each tour are limited to a maximum of ten people, and are filling quickly, so it would pay to get in early to secure your spot.

We are also happy to announce

Return to Japan special

For the whole of 2022, every one who books on a tour will have a chance to win $500 spending money. Each tour group (max 10 people) will have its own draw so your chances of winning are 1:10. The draw will take place at the airport just prior to departure.
