Japan - Janice12 - 10/01/2020

Hi Julia


 Could you please tell me how many people are going to Japan on 20th March, starting off at Manchester airport. Also how long before the flight to Munich should I arrive at Manchester airport.


Thank you.

Hi Janice,

I hope you have a wonderful time in Japan - It's on my wish list so I'd love to hear how you get on.

Unfortunately we no longer share customer profile information for specific tour departures such as the number of booked travellers, gender split or age profiles on the community.

In terms of flight times as a general rule, you should be checked in and ready to go through security at least 2-3 hours before your flight departure time.

Kindest regards

Julia

Hi again Julia

Could you please give me some idea of how much money I need to exchange for the holiday? Also, if I run out of cash will I be able to use my credit card to pay for meals etc.

Thank you.

Hi Janice. I'm going the 20th March but from Heathrow. All I know us that this departure is sold out. Really looking forward to it.

Hi Janice,

In terms of budgeting, this is a very personal thing. But there are some things to help. Firstly. All of your trips are included so no need to worry about carrying additional cash for optional excursions.

Looking through the itinerary you have many of the meals included and only need to budget for 2 dinners and your lunches. In an "average" restaurant you'll be able to eat for between 1000-3000 yen. Many of these will have set lunch menus at around 1000-1500 yen. There are cheaper restaurants where you'll be to get simple dishes like noodles for between 500-1000 yen.

While Japan historically has a cash culture, debit/credit cards are becoming more widely accepted but worth checking with the restaurant before you order. You should also be able to withdraw cash at an ATM in post offices and some shops (just let the Tour Manager know and they'll be able to advise the closest ATM).

The only other thing you need to consider is whether you purchase any souvenirs to take home and remember your trip by.

I hope this helps.

Kindest regards,

Julia

Hi Julia

I’m just looking at what’s the best luggage to take to Japan, as we will be travelling around a lot.

Will we be able to take our luggage on the Shinkansen train, or will it be forwarded on to the next hotel for us? If so when will it arrive could it be the next day?

What type of luggage would you advise will be the easiest to manage on this tour please?


Thank you again

Janice


RE: Japan - Julia - 02/03/2020

Hi Janice,

In terms of taking luggage on the trains - yes, There is room in each carriage - luggage shelves at the end of the carriage for oversized luggage and and overhead rail for smaller cases. Porters will take you luggage from the coach to the platform and will also be asked to help place them on the train.

We would recommend a case that you can easily wheel/carry

Kindest regards,

Julia

RE: Japan - Janice12 - 03/03/2020

Hi again Julia

I received information about our luggage for the train in my final documents. It said our luggage would be transported to our hotel and arrive there sometime in the afternoon.

With the on going Coronavirus in Japan at the moment, how will Just You deal with the closure of certain visitor attractions on our tour?

I have seen that Osaka castle has been closed to tourists and the Peace museum in Hiroshima. There could be others.

Thank you in advance.

Janice
