Important Information for Travel to Japan

Not only are we excited that we will be able to operate our September, October, and November 2022 small group guided tour departures, but we are delighted to also offer you a special, never-to-be-repeated welcome back offer available for a limited time only. Your tour includes the same great walking and accommodations, but now, at no additional cost, all meals and your arrival and departure transfers - in the company of your guide - are included!

We would like to share a few resources with you that will aid you in preparation for your trip. In addition, we are happy to share an overview of what you should expect from now until your arrival. Of course, we also encourage you to reach out to us with any questions you may have, and upon booking with us we will also be in touch with further details as needed. We have also set up an FAQ page to answer a variety of questions you may have. This is specifically addressing summer departures, however we are happy to extend our offerings into the autumn season so we encourage you to take a look.

Currently we can offer our tours to travellers coming from a 'blue' list country, and who have only travelled in blue list countries for the 14 days before their arrival in Japan. The fantastic news is that travellers meeting these criteria can enter Japan without quarantine and without having to test on arrival. You can find a list of 'blue' list countries here.
