We recommend arriving to Tokyo one day early to give your body time to rest, adjust to the time change, and ensure you arrive on time for the welcome dinner. We would be happy to reserve your hotel for an additional night. 

This tour may be very physically demanding for some guests due to our frequent travel and Japan’s heat and humidity in August and September. We will change hotels nine times via sometimes long train rides. It is required that all guests must be able to carry/roll their own luggage during train transfers for about 1/3 mile (including up and down flights of stairs), and also lift their bags to the overhead space on trains. If you expect to have any difficulties with these requirements, then we recommend that you consider the Tokyo NPB Tour.
