COVID-19 Information

Tour Operation Status

As the state of emergency has been lifted in Japan, we are working to resume tours in a safe and healthy manner that protects our guides, our guests, and our community.

We are taking extra precautionary measures listed below, and we also remind guests that we may have to cancel reservations for some or all tours in the event that our community or wider region faces future outbreaks or elevated risk.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in helping all of us move past the global COVID-19 pandemic!
