Your Protection

Japan is one of the few countries in the world with strict government regulation of its travel agencies and tour guides. Both our UK and Japan offices meet and exceed these legal demands, with staff qualified in Japanese travel law and accustomed to the exacting requirements of the Japanese travel industry.

We are a fully licensed and bonded tour operator, a proud member of the Japanese Association of Travel Agents and hold an Air Travel Organisers License. All monies paid by you for an air holiday package as shown are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is 6977. For non-flight packages the details of your financial protection provided by Travel and General Insurance Company are stated below. Please note that the protection is worldwide for all our clients regardless of where you are resident.

All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to:
