Frequently Asked Questions

What should I pack?

We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light. 10 to 20 kgs should be plenty. Your tour will be using mainly trains for transport so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun. Depending on your onward travel plans there is luggage storage at the airports or at some accommodations if needed.

This tour finishes in Kyoto. A return transfer to Tokyo via bullet train is available at an extra cost. Please contact us after booking if you'd like to arrange this.

Japan is generally one of the more expensive countries in Asia. However all your activities, accommodation, transport and some meals are included, so you’ll just need money for any extra meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least £600 / $1000.

Your Japan adventure finishes in Kyoto. The closest airport from Kyoto is Osaka (Kansai) Airport, which takes approx. 1.5-2 hours by train to get to from Kyoto and costs approx. $50AUD / £25.
If you plan to leave straight after the trip we’d recommend flying out of Osaka (so fly into Tokyo and out of Osaka if possible, for this tour).

If you’re flying out of Tokyo and need to return to Tokyo straight after the trip it will take approx. 4 hours by bullet train. Your group leader can organise this for you in Japan and you can pay locally for it. Or you can prepay for this return journey.

You can also fly from Osaka (Kansai) to Tokyo for around the same price as the train or possibly cheaper. We can help you book your return flights.

Yes, travel insurance is compulsory for this trip. You’ll need to show proof of your policy to your group leader upon arrival (on your phone or printed). 

Visa requirements vary depending on the country you are travelling to and your nationality. It’s your responsibility to check the visa and entry requirements for the country/s you will be travelling to.

We cannot apply for your visa for you and strongly recommend that you check on the relevant embassy or consulate website for the country/s you’ll be travelling to well in advance of your departure, as requirements can change and some countries require you to apply for a visa before you travel.

If you're struggling to convince your friends to join you on an adventure, you're not alone!

Travelling solo on a group tour can be one of the most exciting ways to experience a new destination, and you won't have to wait around for your mates to be ready. You leave yourself open to meeting amazing people, making new friends, and can keep yourself and your onward travel plans flexible.

Before your trip starts we'll put you in touch with the rest of your group so you can start chatting and get to know each other. And after the trip a lot of people continue travelling with the new friends they've made!

Did you know when you book with us you get up to 10% CASHBACK to use on your next tour? We won’t be beaten on price! Let us know if you find this tour cheaper and we will beat it!

You score up to 10% of your purchase value emailed to you as a one time code to use on your next adventure!
