    • Every city in Japan has a lot to offer. There are many aspects to the city and many hidden and local spots that you may not have seen or heard of before. In the Custom Tour form that will be sent to you after your booking, you’ll be able to let us know of any attractions you have already visited and would not like to see again on this tour. We will carefully review your requests and will create an itinerary based on your preferences.
    • Guests are provided with the tour guides’ phone number before the tour and you can call the tour guide if you need help.
    • Organizing and planning a trip requires a lot of time and if we have made reservations on your behalf, it may be very challenging to cancel some booking requests. Once we receive your booking and your answers from the Custom Tour form, we will begin putting together your Itinerary Sheet and will start arranging your tour guide, buying tickets, making reservations at venues for your tour, etc.

    • With many options and attractions to choose from in the city, it may seem easier to just choose a set tour that’s already available out there, but after you book this Custom Tour, we’ll work closely with you on designing the perfect tour that is only for you. To make it easier for you, after the tour is booked, you’ll receive a Custom Tour form with various potential options and themes for you to easily choose from. We’ll also consider all your preferences: whether you are into Japanese culture, history, food, nature and scenery, seasonal experiences such as Winter Illuminations, or other, you’ll be able to easily make your selections and identify any spots on your wish-list before we start planning away for you.
    • Passports may be required to verify age on the day of the tour.
    • Price: Select number of people under Booking Request for pricing
    • Why am I charged a service fee if I make a cancellation after you started planning the trip?
    • As for mode of transportation, you’ll have the option to choose public transportation option (utilizing the excellent train and bus systems) or the private vehicle option (with a meticulously clean and comfortable chartered vehicle with personal driver) to take you around the city for your own comfort. The choice is yours. We are just here to make the planning and arranging process easy for you.

    • Cancellation fee of 25% is charged if cancelled 30 days or less before the event
    • How far in advance should I book?Preparing a customized tour requires some time, especially if reservations for restaurants or other venues are required. We recommend making a reservation as early as possible. Ideally, it should be 3 months before your travel date, or 1 month before the travel date at the very least. For Custom Tour bookings that are requested with less than 7 days before the travel date, we may not be able to arrange your custom tour in time so your booking request may be cancelled and you will receive a full refund.
    • PLEASE FILL OUT THE TOUR FORM: After your booking, you will receive a link to the Sapporo Form (within 48 hours) that asks for pertinent information required for this booking. Please ensure that this Sapporo Form is completed accurately at least 7 days before your tour date.

    Nice tour with an excellent tour guide. We have done quite many tours and activities during our stay in Japan but this guide was the best English speaker we got so far. That was adding a lot of value to the tour since we got very good comments and explanations.
