Health & Safety
This tour involves standing and walking for up to 1 hour at a time over inclined or uneven streets.
Guests in wheelchairs may be accommodated, but please understand some historic sites in Japan are not wheelchair accessible.
In traditional ryokan hotels, we will stay overnight in tatami rooms and sleep on futons on the floor.
- In the spirit of "Travel Happy" we do not believe in hidden fees - no options are sold on tour.
It's important everyone has a great dining experience while traveling with us! If you have a special meal restriction (i.e. no sashimi, no lamb, etc), please let us know 30 days before tour date. We will do our best to oblige, but we regret some dietary preferences may not be available due to cultural differences.
Due to limited space aboard Shinkansen (bullet train), please prepare an overnight bag (carry-on size) for 2 day/1 night use on Day 2. We will arrange the transfer of your large suitcases to our next hotel.
Porterage service included in all hotels where available (most ryokan hotels do not offer porterage).
When Miho Museum is closed, we will visit Nijo Castle or Sanjusangendo instead. Please note, Miho Museum’s hours of operation are subject to change without notice.
