Travel Tips

Thank you for your interest in our Springtime Flower Tour of Japan.

Below is the answer to a number of frequently asked questions. Feel free to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.



Group seating has been secured in economy class with Qantas Airways for our guests flying in and out of Melbourne. Any deviation away from these flights may increase the cost of the fare. We would be happy to sell a "land package" only to anybody who would like to secure their own airfare and taxes.


Airline regulations state that each traveller may take:

1 Large suitcase

1 piece of hand luggage

The large suitcase should not weigh more than 30 kilograms and the hand luggage should not weight more than 7 kilograms. Please note no dangerous items, aerosols, sharp items, liquids or gels are permitted in your "carry on" luggage.


The electrical supply in Japan is 110 volts. Most modern electric appliances are dual voltage and will operate in Japan. However you will need to buy an adaptor which will fit a Japanese power point. These are available at any duty free shop or travel shops.


April in Japan is the middle of the spring which makes it the best time of the year to visit Japan. In the mornings and evenings, the weather will be cool. For this reason everyone should pack a set of warm clothes. It is highly unlikely that we will experience a lot of rain during our stay as the rainy season occurs at the end of the Japanese summer.

Passports and Visas

All group members must have valid passports with a minimum of six months validity remaining. Australian Passport holders visiting Japan as a tourist for a period of less than 90 days do not require a visa to enter Japan.

Please contact us immediately should you need to travel using a non-Australian passport.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is an absolute must for Japan. There is little to no crime, but for peace of mind each traveller must be covered by comprehensive travel insurance. Tailor Made Travel is unable to accept any passenger who is not covered by some form of comprehensive travel insurance. Just a simple visit to the doctor in Japan can be a very expensive experience. Please alert us should you require travel insurance.


The itinerary has been designed to allow us to see the many highlights of Japan in a short amount of time. Please not that no activities are compulsory to attend. We ask that you alert the tour organisers should you like to abstain from any parts of the itinerary. We only request that in fairness to all group Members that punctuality is adhered to so nobody is inconvenienced.

Each activity will be conducted at a relaxed pace, but there will be quite a bit of walking required each day. Therefore a basic level of fitness and mobility is required.


All of our accommodation would be considered a 3.5 to 4 star rating by Australian standards. All of our hotels are conveniently located and are known for their professional service and value for money.

Buffet breakfast is included at all hotels during our stay. Your room telephone, Pay TV and Mini Bar may be used at an extra cost which is payable upon check out. Free wifi is available at all of our hotels.

How much money should I take?

This is really up to the individual. We recommend a minimum of Aud $100 per person per day. We estimate the following spend on meals:

-Breakfast Included daily in package

-Lunch AUD $15 - $25

-Dinner AUD $35 - $50

Minimal on the spot expenses may include some local train fares, souvenirs, some entrance fees to temples, museums and other tour destinations.
