It is condition of travelling with us that you have insurance to cover your medical expenses in Japan. We also highly recommend that you purchase insurance to cover the cancellation or curtailment of your trip (you would then be reimbursed for any cancellation charges), loss of personal effects, and liability.
Cash is king in Japan, and it is important to have enough cash to see you through your trip. Please do not rely on bringing your credit or debit card with you, as only a very few Japanese ATMs (cash machines) work with them. Normal Japanese bank ATMs do not accept foreign cards.
Once you leave Tokyo or Kyoto (or other large cities) there may be no place to exchange foreign cash or use your card. We recommend bringing about JPY5,000 per day, per person. You will probably need less in rural areas, but it is best to be prepared.
We will send you a detailed dossier with a complete list of things to bring with you.

Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard) in Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars,Euros, British Pounds, US Dollars
Debit cards (Visa debit, Visa Electron, UK issued Maestro & Solo)
Bank transfers in Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars,Euros, British Pounds, US Dollars
