Q: I am a solo traveller, can I join this trip?

Q: What kind of stay can I expect?

You may have heard that hotel rooms in Japan are quite small, and that’s certainly correct! With twin rooms starting at only 9 m² and the prevalence of capsule hotels, Japan is known for its efficient use of space. Room sizes, especially in city centers, are generally much smaller than what you might be accustomed to. Please keep this in mind when booking this tour.

Accommodation type
You’ll be staying 9 nights at Western-style 4/5-star equivalent hotels, accompanied by a memorable night at a traditional Japanese ryokan boasting a private hot spring bath. Throughout the tour, your Western style accommodations are strategically situated in city hotspots, granting easy access to halal eateries, shops, and transportation nodes, ensuring seamless exploration of the city.

Room size
At Tulu Tours, your comfort is our utmost priority. We have meticulously selected rooms that offer ample space for relaxation, prayer, and comfortably unpacking your suitcases. Each room on this tour boasts a generous size, ranging from 25 m² to 35 m², ensuring you have plenty of room to unwind.

Our accommodations feature double beds that surpass the usual standards in Japan, with sumptuous Queen or King-sized beds starting at 180 cm in width. These plush beds promise a restful night’s sleep, enhancing your overall travel experience.

Please note, during traditional ryokan stays, it is customary to find two single beds instead of double beds. This is a part of the authentic Japanese experience we have curated for you, providing both comfort and cultural immersion.
