The value of pre-and post-tour stays.

Most of our tour participants often wake up at the crack of dawn in order to catch flights to Japan. After arriving in Japan, many guests find themselves exhausted, and the first day of the tour the next morning is often overshadowed with trying to catch up on rest. At the end of the tour starts the whole process all over again with a rush to the airport to catch flights home on next day. Regrettably, many travelers are so focused on booking their tour that they often don't give thought to adding a few days to enjoy the city where our tour starts or ends. It's a shame to fly all that way and not savor some of Japan's most exciting places such as Tokyo. Thankfully there is a better way to enjoy your vacation: pre-and post-tour stays.
