2020 has been an extremely difficult year on a global scale.
Japan is currently restricting entry to foreign tourists from over 150 countries around the world, including the United States. It is unclear when tourists will be able to enter the country, but there has been mention of a gradual reopening starting in April 2021.
We do not anticipate Japan reopening its borders before April 2021 and have cancelled our March 2021 tours. The April and May tours are still scheduled to go as planned.
We plan to reassess the situation in January before any final payments are due. If you haven’t already, we recommend waiting to buy plane tickets until we get back to you in January.
We will consider cancelling a tour if one or more of the following occurs: 1) there are not enough people signed up for your particular tour, 2) there is a Level 3 or greater U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory, or 3) Japan is not allowing Americans to enter the country.
We are optimistic that everything will be back to normal soon and look forward to showing you the best of Japan!
Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season!
