*Please note: this is a Land-only tour; you are responsible for getting to and from Japan.  Also, please note the 21-day and 13-day tours begin in Osaka and end in Tokyo; the 8-day tour begins and ends in Tokyo.  Please call Steve if you have questions about this.  Steve (or one of his associates) will meet you as you emerge from Customs at the Airport on the Tour Commencement Date.  Flights from North America always depart a day earlier, since you "lose a day" crossing the International Date Line.
If you are considering arriving at or departing from Haneda Airport (HND), or have other plans for arriving in Japan, please discuss this with Steve as early as possible.  Some flights into Haneda arrive at very inconvenient times (which is probably one reason they are sometimes cheaper)
